3) GLUE REEDS ELECTRIC PIANO BY MOKAFIX AUDIO VSTS
Mokafix has a bunch of cool VST plugins that simulate filters, and amps. but the highlight here is the Glue Reeds electric piano. This piano has a very warm sound that was based on the previous blue reeds plugins, however thay don’t have those anymore.

This instrument is based on a Yamaha FM 4 operator and has been labeled as one of the best freeware VSTs on the internet. We love this VST but we love you more so here you go. If your a Frequency Modulation type of guy, then you might like this one.
5) ABAKOS BY HERCS MUSIC SYSTEM
HERCS music system is gone, but they left us this wonderful gift called Abakos Virtual Analog (Subtractive) Synthesizer. The reason why it’s here is because that this is one of those VSTs that are pretty flexible, due to it having so many parameters.

7) THE COLORSPACE: DRAFTER
This instrument has been one of our prized posessions ever since we have stumbled upon this. This is the second time that we have given you our golden treasure huh? What’s special about this synth? Well instead of being limited by the typical ‘saw’ ‘square’ ‘sine’ waveforms, why not make your own by drawing the waveform itself? Given that capability, you can create more sounds that limit the span of your imagination.
8) ROAZHON BY OLIVIER
Olivier has made this synth and what makes it special is that it has a lot of parameters and filters that enable you to shape the sound to the way you like it. It also lets you control the attack and decay to make plucks or stabs.
