And Alchemy has been released!

If you have previously purchased Synthetic, it should now be available as an update.

If you haven’t, what’s holding you back?


Lack of funds, lack of internet banking, already having enough oscillators.:blush:

these are much more than just oscillators. so much more fun!

well, you know, two out of three ain’t bad.

Wondering what you could do to model the Colossus from Analogue Solutions! It might be the challenge of a lifetime.

I don’t think I have enough cpu power to model that virtually :slight_smile:

though as an aside, there is an image floating around of me making coffee while wearing goggles and a lab coat, so at least there’s something similar to the video.


@jerrysv Your latest Synthetic upgrade v 1.2.3 keeps showing in the upgrade list. I’ve deleted the directory from the plugins-v1 folder and let it do a fresh download, but the update keeps showing up in the library menu.

Same here on linux.

Same here (Win10). And I can’t see the modules in VCV…

I’ll see if @vortico has any answers. unfortunately that’s part of the process that’s somewhat opaque to developers.
