Good soft synth for hard sync sounds?

Recommendations please?

One with proper control over the master and slave oscs, not a lazy hard sync slider like in omnisphere. But different waveforms, exact pitches etc. I remember using a synth ages ago (DSI mopho I think) and I could create interesting sounds for example by gliding one osc between a third and a fifth etc.

Cheers

Just Omnisphere and Massive. They've both kinda got it but with not much control.

Re: Good soft synth for hard sync sounds?

Pretty sure you can do this with a lot of precision and flexibility in zebra. I'm actually having a though time thinking of other synths that can do this in the way you're looking for. Virus TI can, but that's an expensive synth to do one thing.

Thing is that usually sync options are limited to "analog waveforms". Aka square, triangle, pulse, on the synths I can think of. I bet you could get something very similar with the waveshaping tools in z3ta 2.

Good luck!

Thanks.

Yup had a Virus B synth before and I'm sure I was able to do it on that too. Ok I'll check that out cheers bro

Re: Good soft synth for hard sync sounds?

Found a synth called Synthmaster and it's got what I need. Never heard of it before looks pretty well featured though.

Re: Good soft synth for hard sync sounds?

This is just top-of-my-head knowledge that would require further research, but from what I recall DCAM Synth Squad has some pretty solid sync features.

On the mopho you had 4 sequencers and could assign them to different oscillators. So you could sync the oscs and then play a melody with the harmonics of the master. For a monosynth it was great the polyrythms you could get with one sound. Miss that little yellow box's sound but it was no fun to program and sync.

Andantonius - I like the look of that a lot. The Cypher seems to have a smart "scale" tuning mode for the oscillators that cycles through the musical harmonics while turning the knob. The synth is designed for audio-rate modulation too.

Re: Good soft synth for hard sync sounds?

The "Hard Sync" input on oscillators is actually just a reset input. You're using OSC2 to reset the phase of the OSC1: Whenever OSC2 finishes the cycle it will force OSC1 to begin anew. OSC2 therefore needs a sharp falling or rising edge, but OSC1 waveform can be more or less anything. Sawcore oscillators can usually just send the base saw to the Sync input while outputting the actual waveform that's desired though.

Also: IIRC that FabFilter Twin 2 synth does it. Not a massive fan of it otherwise since it tends to sound thin. Makes for fantastic layers for lead sounds but not much else.

Other than those mentioned already, Predator has good hard sync.

Any decent Prophet emulator has good hard sync too.

Re: Good soft synth for hard sync sounds?

I urge you guys to check out the sync features in synthmaster.

You can fun the wavescanning (what I would call wavetable) oscillators in sync mode for some seriously cool results. This is fun.

Re: Good soft synth for hard sync sounds?

Slow to medium speed lfos scanning through the waves, second osc tuned to a fifth, bit of unison + detune, hold a chord down and that is sick. Haven't even started modulating the osc pitch and adding a filter yet!

Re: Good soft synth for hard sync sounds?

dude.. this is great, I've been getting some crazy tones with this.

They're going to release synthmaster 2.7 on August 1st. The demo is already up, and I checked it out. IT'S FUCKING AWESOME.

The most notable feature is some new oscilator "algorithms". These are on top of the already existent modes (basic, wavescanning, vesctor etc.).. it adds "bend +/-"(popularized by NI massive), and some other ones. "Bitcrushe" is interesting.

I really love this synth.
