Ronan Fed Pneuma

Free plug-ins Ronan Fed PneumaPneuma by Ronan Fed is a beast of a synth with four multi-voice oscillators, each of which delivers up to eight voices with detune and stereo spread. That should tell you what Pneuma is all about: Fat, massive trance leads and pads are its biggest specialties. It’s also got two sample oscillators, two different filter types, plenty of modulation, an arpeggiator and chord generator, and a comprehensive selection of effects. That’s a whole lot of synth for a free plug-in!

Pneuma is available for Windows in VST and VST3 formats (64 bit).

Pauli Pölkki Wave Manuel

Free Plug-ins Pauli Pölkki Wave ManuelOn to a completely different kind of synth. Wave Manuel is a waveshaping synth that’s more on the experimental side. Through the symmetry, saturation, and shaping parameters, its morphing oscillator produces anything from classic waveforms to unique, one-of-a-kind timbres. Everything can be modulated by dedicated envelopes and LFOs. Wave Manuel also offers frequency modulation and a filter for further sound shaping, as well as vibrato and reverb effects.


Wave Manual is available for Windows and macOS in VST3 and AU formats.
