u-he has announced a Linux version of Podolski, a free synthesizer instrument previously released for Windows and Mac.

Needless to say, this is first steps. Hence, we figured we’d throw out a nice freebee to get as much feedback as we possibly can from the Linux audio community.

Sound-Base Audio has released Retro Boy, a free chiptune synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Retro Boy is a virtual analog chiptune synthesizer/emulator. It does not specifically emulate a single device or sound chip, but it was made with a certain handheld gaming system in mind.

The goal was to make a simple, minimal, synth that could create “8-bit music” without being overly complicated or requiring much knowledge from the end-user.

Retro Boy features

  • Single oscillator with seven different waveforms: Pulse 1 (12.5% duty cycle), Pulse 2 (25% duty cycle), Pulse 3 (50% duty cycle), Saw, Triangle, Sine, Noise.
  • Volume, vibrato, decimation, ADSR envelope, and voice control (adjustable from 1 to 4 voices).
  • Low CPU usage, <1% on an i5 processor.

Retro Boy for Windows (VST) is available to download as freeware.
