Our free VST synth, ShinyDirt, (v 1.1) – emulates circuit-bent analog synths



This works on 64-bit Reaper, and on some other 64-bit DAWs.  But also try try our 64-bit-only VSTs. 64-bit “Simple Microtonal Synth” and Simple Microtonal Sampler, 64-bit Windows, v1.0.

LISTEN to ShinyDirt:

…a very musical homage to circuit-bent analog synths.

128 presets

ShinyDirt is largely all about the mod wheel. The mod wheel does something different on each pre-set.

32-bit VSTi mono synth

Lots of user-defined options.

On-screen waveform readout. Looks cool, plus great educational tool.

Runs on any 32-bit DAW, and on some 64-bit DAWs (tested and working on 64-bit Reaper, Cubase, and on Sony Acid.)

Some of the settings sound beautiful. A lot of them sound extreme. Especially when you move the mod wheel. Sometimes the wheel is crazy, sometimes it’s subtle.

2 oscillators, 2 LFOs, choice of what mod wheel does. Mod wheel behaves differently on different presets.

On many presets or user-defined settings, the mod wheel does more extreme things to sound than on many synths.

On some, the wheel even works backwards of what would be expected.

This yields interesting results and is a boon to ending “the same old thing” sessions.

All values go higher and lower than on most synths. Plus one filter is intentionally hooked up “wrong.”

Because of this, sometimes things will work well (especially with the mod wheel) on one octave (or even part of an octave) and not elsewhere on the keyboard. But this unpredictability is part of the fun.
