Spitfire Labs

This is an excellent free product Spitfire Audio, and well worth having in your plugin folder. Labs free edition comes with a range of ethereal and contemporary sounds ranging from gentle acoustic pianos, to rich warm vocal pads. Head on over to the site now and sign up for free!

Lethal Audio

At Youth Zone we love a bit of EDM, and one of our favourite free instruments is Lethal. The free version comes with 100 free presets mainly in the style of house and trance, but there are some beautiful pianos and synth pads to be had as well. The synth has an easy to use interface and is pretty light on computer processing power, so should work well on a modestly powered laptop. Have fun!

Disco DSP OB-Xd

It really doesn’t get any better than this. This is a full and incredibly modelled virtual synthesizer based on the classic Oberheim OB-X. Its so good in fact we cannot believe Disco DSP have released it for free. Expect huge 80s basslines, mono style leads and epic brass patches. To change sounds simply remember to right click anywhere on the interface to reveal the different patches. Think Aha and Depeche Mode. An absolute beast!

Syntronic Free

Trying to fit 5 free synths onto this page was almost impossible. The sheer quality and quantity of available free vsts nowadays is astounding. That said Syntronik free edition deserved its spot. You only get 50 free presets from the full versions vast library, but they are very high quality and inspiring. Big Moog and Pro 5 sounds galore here. Enjoy!
