NUSofting releases Sinnah, a new *freeware* VA synth plugin


29/03/2016  nusofting.com

NUSofting releases Sinnah, a new freeware VA synth plugin.

Sinnah it's available as AU and VST plugins, for Mac and PC,
supporting 32-bit and 64-bit hosts.
100% freeware.

Sinnah is a VA synth, but instead of the standard
subctractive resonant filter it uses a resonant delay network.

- Sinnah is a synth based on a single complex oscillator that includes five
waveshapes with increasing spectral complexity, harmonics level for all
waveshapes, noise level, and a delay matrix.

- The delay matrix can have various configurations, from a "triple chorus" per
voice to highly randomized resonators, or tuned relatively to the note played.
The delay matrix can also do multiple slapback echoes.

- The feedback control of the matrix can go from zero to extremely saturated
and it's modulated by its own envelope.

- The output of each voice is stereo via the delay matrix, which features a
stereo spread knob.

- The main analogue modelled ADSR envelope is loopable: two, three or
continuous repeats.

- The envelope can modulate the waveshape selection and the harmonics level.

- The synth also features a subtractive stereo filter to carve the spectrum of
the sound, somehow like an equalizer, with three filters: high pass, low pass
and band reject (notch) . The band reject filter also features gain and
bandwidth controls.

- Moreover a useful simple reverb is included.

- The oscillator is antialiased and can play eight voices or mono, and
features octave and fine pitch controls.

- The GUI is fully drawn by vectors and resizeable, featuring an oscilloscope
and peak meters. And eight colour schemes are available to fit your mood and

- An extended ToolTip display provides information for each control at
mouseover. So you don't need to read a lengthy manual to learn what a knob or
a slider is for.

- The preset system is crossplatform, the files use the YAML format so they
are very easy to read and edit if needed. Moreover, the preset names can
support the complete international character set.

***** Planned features. *****

For this first freeware edition the pitchbend range is fixed at two octaves,
this will change and there are many already planned features for the next

I will upgrade Sinnah following the requests submitted by users. So it means
that we start with a features list and you can vote for your favourites, and
even suggest features not listed yet.

The features with a rate of five or above will be implemented in the Sinnha
freeware, when we'll reach what I think it can be a critical threshold, Sinnah
will split in Sinnah freeware and Sinnha Pro.

Sinnah freeware will keep the features up to the "critical threshold" and will
stay free. All next new features would be implemented in Sinnah Pro which will
be payware.

To vote for a features you can simply write on our forum or send an e-mail.

This is the first NUSofting plugin to use our brand new framework for
development, thus we'll be very happy to read any report and suggestion of

Possible features planned so far for Sinnah Pro or Sinnah freeware:
please see them at

***** Known issues *****

This first release of Sinnah is a stable RC version, there are some small
known issues that will be fixed in the next update, please check them at
