Free music software round-up: Week 64

Two new synths vie for attention

Freeware fans can take a bit of a breather this week as only a couple of new instruments have come to our attention, each of which harks back to the analogue era.

If you've got a new free music software release, make sure you let us know about it by emailing with all the details.

GTG Synths NR2010

The developer says that this, his "personal workhorse synth," was built for personal use but is now being made available to everybody. It's an analogue-style polysynth with a 24dB filter, envelopes and modulation effects.

Necromare Music Polyslop

Platform/format: PC/VST Download

This is Necromare's first instrument - full marks for choosing such an excellent name for it. It's a simple synth that's designed to emulate vintage Arp/Moog sounds, though the developer isn't making any great claims for it, saying that it was made "as more of a test than anything else".
