Free FB-3300 Synthesizer (VST/AU)

Full Bucket Music has announced the release of FB-3300, a free instrument plugin for Windows and Mac operating systems.

FB-3300 simulates the Korg PS-3300 polyphonic synthesizer – semi-modular two piece synthesizer system from Korg, recognized as one of the first truly polyphonic analog synthesizers from the mid 70’s.

Below is a demo track created in Reaper 64 with 16 instances of FB-3300.

Full Bucket Music has written the plugin in native C++ code for high performance and low CPU consumption. Here are the main characteristics:

  • Close emulation of behavior and all controls of the original hardware.
  • Three independent polyphonic synthesizer blocks.
  • Band-limited oscillators, classic two-pole lowpass filters.
  • Resonators section plus two Modulation Generators per bank.
  • Additional Sample & Hold and paraphonic Envelope Generator.
  • Semi-modular.
  • Micro-tuning option.
  • Additional tweaks.
  • MIDI Learn – all parameters can be controlled by MIDI CC.
  • Plug-in supports Windows and macOS (32-bit and 64-bit).

You can download FB-3300 for free at Full Bucket Music. Versions available are VST for Windows and VST/AU for Mac.
