Free music software round-up: Week 126

Three not of a kind.
Three not of a kind.

All three of this week's releases appears to take a 'keep it simple' approach to design, but that doesn't mean that the sounds they can help you to produce have to be run-of-the-mill.

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

SonicXTC Deep-Mono

Platform/format: PC/VST Download

Designed in the spirit of the classic '70s monosynths, this single-oscillator instrument promises to be easy to program - all of its parameters are displayed on the front panel. There are 70 presets, but the real fun may come in creating your own.

Saltline Drzewo Liść-verb

Platform/format: PC/VST Download

A reverb/delay effect that's designed with simplicity in mind. Use it for everything from creating pad ambiences to textured beats. You can also throw a state-variable filter into the mix for additional creative opportunities.

Sonic Emblem Sonic BND

Platform/format: PC, Mac/VST, AU Download

Sonic BND does realtime audio pitchbending with an LFO. There's a plus/minus 12 semitone range and six types of waveform, while the LFO rate can be synced to your current BPM.
