Seaweed Audio Fathom Mono
This is the lite version of Fathom Pro but it includes the full synthesis engine from its big brother. From the website, “At its core, Fathom is a fully modular virtual synthesizer which allows the user to connect any two components together.” It has great sound quality, too. There are presets and wavetables as well as a quickstart guide.
TAL (Togu Audio Line Noisemaker)is a free synthesizer plug-in. There are a surprising number of videos on YouTube about this free tool, so if you need more examples or tutorials, check there.
From the TAL website:
TAL-NoiseMaker is an improved version of TAL-Elek7ro and has a completely new synth engine and a lot of improvements in sound and usability. The synth also includes a small effect section with a reverb, chorus and a simple bit crusher effect.
A display shows the knob and slider values. This allows more control over the synth. A ringmodulator and a syncable triangle are also part of this synth. TAL-NoiseMaker includes new filter types as the self resonating 6dB low pass and a notch filter. Its improved amplitude ADSR is very suitable for slow pads as for really fast envelopes. 128 factory presets included, 80 made by Frank “Xenox” Neumann / Particular – Sound
