This synth has its very own sound in anything it does, and to some it will sound too thin with most things. The interface is very nice, not too intuitive at first, but then you kind of get the idea. Learning is easily accomplished by sweeping through the presets.

I'm surprised noone mentioned it here that there are several versions of Orangator. Orangator 1.0 was the first release (had a little demosong and some presets). Afterwards came Orangator 2.0b (b for 'beta'), which was a major improvement over 1.0 with more of everything, and it also had more presets. Finally, Orangator 2.0 (final) came out and it had heaps of presets neatly organized into directories, and much more stable than 1.0 or 2.0b. 2.0 is somewhat rare as most people never knew it actually got released.. so what most people use is 2.0b.

There is also a "modular" version of this, called "Visual Orangator". Only one version of that program surfaced, it had 4 presets and no manual. Its worth checking out, an interesting piece of software.

I love this program. I taught myself how to use it without any confusion help documents. After a couple of hours, it is quite easy to use and it's free.

In return, you get some incredible sound perfect for using in any type of recording.

My personal favorite.

This is a GREAT program! It took me about 2 hours to learn the program, after having looked at the examples other people had done. The sound is incredible, and sounds exactly like a 303. Very nice sound quality. I love this program!! :)

Kinda cool, escpecially that it's free. Good for messing with loops and suchlike, plus generating noises.

Great piece of freeware and the finest free sound maker I've yet found. Combined with a tracker and this seems like the simplest free/cheap PC setup around. To save as wave files check the option tab and select "save as Wav" (the default is Ft2 Xi format) Files go into the default preset directory when you select Save.
