The Mothman 2000 is a very unique VSTi for windows that seamlessly combines 3 forms of synthesis to create a truly unique sounding and easy to use software synthesizer. There are two main oscillators, the first is a standard waveform generator that has sine, saw, ramp, triangle, pulse, white noise, and pink noise. The other is a phase distortion oscillator, a technology pioneered by Casio in the 1980s for their unique CZ series of synthesizers that contains two separate waveform generators that each produce saw, square, pulse, double sine, saw-pulse and three resonant waveforms. There are VCFs on each oscillator and VCF1 features a dedicated ADSR section. The LFOs are what truly makes this synth unique, because the are actually LFO/HFOs, low and high frequency. The first is connected to the Amp section of OSC1 and the second to the pitch of OSC2. At low oscillation settings they can be use for traditional LFO FX, yet at HFO settings they function as FM operators that can totally change the sound.
Using this combination of FM synthesis over top of PD and Analog style subtractive synthesis makes for some truly unique yet still musical and usable sounds. The logical and intuitive design make it very simple to program even if you don’t know a lot about synthesis. There are also ADSR envelope generator sections for each oscillators output that can allow you to create everything from huge warm pads to more staccato brass and piano sounds.
The Mothman 2000 features 32 built-in presets with 32 user slots for creating your own patches. At only $10 this plugin gives you a lot of bang for your buck!
