Do you need another VSTi? OH HELL YES!

Version 2 of our angry old fart is out and he’s still mad as hell!

Burt are built around a traditional chain of subtractive synthesis but Instead of the traditional way with a nice and clean signal chain Burt adds distortion or exaggerate the signal in every step of the signal path. So even if you start off with a clean sine wave you might end up with something completely different and might even not hear any difference if you change to a saw or square. But be sure of one thing; it will sound like no other synth you heard before!
Call it waveshaping or oscillation by distortion if you like… We call it Burt!

Mattias Fridell:

-“The first thing that struck me was the raw and aggressive look, which of course appealed to me immediately! After about 15 minutes I realized its enormous potential in the heavy and gritty bass line department. But Burt is not restricted to creating gritty bass lines; its also perfect for hypnotic mono lines a couple of octaves up thanks to the exceptional portamento and LFO.”

  1. We won’t be able to port Burt as is, but we do plan a similar bit Synth based on the same philosophy!
