    charlatan-1-4

    Charlatan is a polyphonic, subtractive virtual analog (VA) synthesizer plugin with a feature set just flexible enough to cover a wide range of sounds while deliberately abstaining from countless parameters and modulation options cluttering the user interface and distracting from the creative process.

    Features:

    • 2 oscillators with triangle, sawtooth, rectangle
    • oscillator pulse-width modulation (PWM) and slew rate modulation (morphing between triangle and sawtooth)
    • oscillator hard synchronization and ring modulation
    • noise source with low/highpass filter
    • 2 ADSR envelope generators
    • LFO with host tempo synchronization
    • 3 filter types modeled after classic analog hardware: 4-pole (24 db/oct) and 2-pole (12 db/oct) lowpass, bandpass
    • filter code based on nonlinear zero-delay feedback technique for accurate emulation of analog counterparts
    • 3 voice modes: Monophonic with retriggering, Monophonic Legato and 8-voice Polyphonic
    • low CPU usage
    • 100% coded in C++
    • native 64-bit support
