From grooveboxes to workstations and classic-styled analogue polysynths, this week’s edition of Synth Deals has an impressive range of instruments to choose from.
If you’re looking for ways to create new sounds outside of your DAW, this might be the perfect opportunity to expand your setup. Let’s take a closer look at the deals on offer:
Sonicware LIVEN Texture Lab
With the LIVEN Texture Lab, you can create new sounds with its granular synthesis engine or use it as an effects processor. Its sampler can store up to 32 different samples, which can be loaded via MIDI and there’s a multimode filter to shape sounds.
Meanwhile, the 128-step pattern sequencer provides 3-voice polyphony with pattern chaining and looping functionality. When combined with the interesting reverb effects, it’s a neat little sound-sculpting groovebox.
*Until July 14, you get an additional €40 off this price (deducted in cart).

The Microfreak packs plenty of impressive performance features into a compact form factor. Its hybrid engine uses a digital oscillator section with multiple synthesis modes, including Karplus Strong, Harmonic OSC, Superwave, and Texturer.
This is combined with an analogue state variable filter and a flexible mod matrix, plus a pattern sequencer with four parameter automation tracks. Then add paraphonic mode and polyphonic aftertouch and it’s a formidable instrument for the price.

Roland Juno-DS 88
The Juno DS 88 provides a great deal of value as an all-round performance instrument. However, it also has features that will be useful in studio too. With an 88-key hammer action keybed, 128-voice polyphony, and a range of effects it’s great for the stage.
Besides the 1200 presets, 64 performances, and over 30 drum kits, you also get a mic channel with specialized vocal effects and a vocoder. What’s more, there’s an 8-track sequencer with loop recording as well as USB Audio/MIDI and DAW Control mode.

Sequential Prophet 6
The Prophet 6 is a classic-styled 6-voice analogue polysynth with a 49-key keybed with aftertouch. You can relive the original Prophet feel with the welcome addition of a multimode arpeggiator, 64-step pattern sequencer, and a digital effects section.
What’s more, you also get an analogue distortion circuit and the SLOP feature which mimics the circuit behaviour of the various revisions of the Prophet, which is something purists will enjoy.
