FabFilter has released version 2.01 of FabFilter One, addressing some minor problems. Originally released three months ago as a VST plug-in and standalong app for Windows, FabFilter One is a monophonic lead synthesizer that realizes the best possible sound.
FabFilter's philosophy is that musicians do not need more features, they need better sound. This approach has resulted in a solid-sounding oscillator and a self-resonating cut-off filter that has been tuned to achieve the character and warmth of a classic analog synthesizer.
Smart parameter interpolation algorithms ensure that FabFilter One responds immediately to parameter changes while keeping transitions smooth, even with MIDI controller changes.
Aliasing-free oscillator with triangle, sawtooth, square, and noise waveforms with three pulse width modulation modes and additional white or pink noise
Self-oscillating digital 12 dB/octave low-pass filter

Smooth portamento feature
Smart parameter interpolation algorithms ensure responsiveness and smooth transitions when changing any parameter to avoid digital clicks and zipper effects, even with MIDI controller changes
