The Windows VST instrument plug-in has also been
updated to v1.2: trouble with saving presets was
fixed and a display bug in the setup-page was fixed.

TG1 is a multitimbral synthesizer with 2
individual voices and a waveform sequencer.
When we announced
SyS TG1 in
2010 and sent out some Beta versions, we were so
surprised by the massive amount of interest and the
pure impact of downloaded demos, we almost had to
shut the website down, because we weren't prepared
for that kind of attention.
must have hit a nerve, and here is why:
Coming from the C64 and 8-bit sound world, Wertstahl
always wanted to have a Synthesizer, that acted like
a SID Soundchip but in a 16-bit context. So he just
took ideas from how the programmers on the C64 were
generating certain effects to enrichen the sound of
the very limited chip, like seqentially switching
waveforms or using arpeggio-lists to create
pseudo-chords. And like that, the heart of the
was born: the
wave-morph-sequencer. Not only can you
sequentially switch from one waveform to another
while your sound is played, but the waves will
smoothly morph. This generates a multitude of
transitions of over- and subtones, giving the
it's unique sound.
Additionally, manipulation of sounds
should be as simple and intuitive as possible, so we
added a double LFO-Unit and an Akai S-1000 inspired
12-bit low-pass Filter. We didn't get it to make
it's very distinctive erroneous high squeak sound
when at 99% cutoff, but it is very non-resonant and
softening. Just like we wanted it.
Also, deep inside the device, you
will find some mixing-routine switch, and the
SyS TG1 is now freeware, enjoy.
