"Sinnah the sinner, is its sin to be
free, or is its sin to sound so lush?"
Sinnah is a synth based on a single
complex oscillator that includes five waveshapes
with increasing spectral complexity, harmonics level
for all waveshapes, noise level, and a delay matrix.
The delay matrix can have various
configurations, from a "triple chorus" per voice to
highly randomized resonators, or tuned relatively to
the note played.
The delay matrix can also do
multiple slapback echoes.
The feedback control of the matrix
can go from zero to extremely saturated and it's
modulated by its own envelope.
The output of each voice is stereo
via the delay matrix, which features a stereo spread
The main analogue modelled ADSR
envelope is loopable: two, three or continuous
The envelope can modulate the
waveshape selection and the harmonics level.
The synth also features a
subtractive stereo filter to carve the spectrum of
the sound, somehow like an equalizer, with three
filters: high pass, low pass and band reject (notch)
The band reject filter also features
gain and bandwidth controls.
Moreover a useful simple reverb is
The oscillator is antialiased and
can play eight voices or mono, and features octave
and fine pitch controls.
The GUI is fully drawn by vectors
and resizeable, featuring an oscilloscope and peak
meters. And eight colour schemes are available to
fit your mood and taste.
An extended ToolTip display provides
information for each control at mouseover.
So you don't need to read a lengthy
manual to learn what a knob or a slider is for.
The preset system is crossplatform,
the files use the YAML format so they are very easy
to read and edit if needed. Moreover, the preset
names can support the complete international
Sinnah is a VA synth plugin, but
instead of the standard subtractive resonant filter
it uses a resonant delay network.
Hard to describe its sound by words,
despite the few controls the array of possible
sounds is wide and wild
