Funky Clavinet style free vst instrument,
‘This plugin emulates the ultra-funky sound of the Hohner Clavinet, forever associated with Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition”.
The synth engine is based on a physical modeling algorithm, faithfully reproducing the strings vibration and the 2 pickups of the Clavinet Model C. Special attention has been given to reproduce the non-linear interferences in strings decay, for an even more realistic sound. The characteristic “click” sound on key release is also emulated.
A built-in wah-wah effect with selectable manual/autowah mode is also included.
TickyClav will cover all your funk needs, at an unbeatable price (it’s free !).’
AlgoMusics free VST plugin: SynthString
Very nice sounding synth string emulator. Warm pads and quite low usage on the CPU.
Worth a bit of experimenting with.
Plenty of parameters to mess with.
‘Emulation (no samples here!) of those string synthesizers of the late 70′s made famous by ARP and Solina. It features a full ADSR envelope generator, a small effect section with a phaser, a delay and of course the ‘ensemble’ effect.’

Superb Pads created with this free synth available to download here
Umbra is basically a Waveset of 128 complex waveforms as SF2 plus a specially designed VSTi Synthesizer / SF2 (Soundfont) player. The Umbra waveset consists of complex waveforms which
are best suited for dark ambient, soundscapes, athmospheres, textures and rather experimental sounds. The Umbra waveset can be used also with STS-26 and ProtoPlasm21 and other sf2 compatible apps. As of STS-26 and ProtoPlasm 21 it is recommeded not to load it into all slots as sound might get too fat then.

Free to download 4Front VSTi Bass plugin,
Similar to 4Fronts Piano plugin this plugin also has no settings or presets.
It’s a staright down the line bass plugin.
Sounds good as well.
According to 4Front this bass vst like the piano version is a mix of sample synthesized sound. The original string excitation was sampled, and then the sound was modeled.
The bass guitars range was artifically extended up and down, so that higher notes and parts could be played as well.
