Charlatan is a polyphonic,
subtractive virtual analog software synthesizer
plugin whose design focuses on sound quality and
easy usability. The design philosophy was to provide
a feature set just large enough to cover a wide
range of sounds rather than an infinite number of
parameters and modulation options cluttering the
user interface and distracting from the creative
process. That said, Charlatan's synthesis
architecture is flexible enough to create all kinds
of sounds, from conventional classic leads, basses
and pads to weird blips and noises.
While making no compromises about
sound quality, the algorithms have been optimized
for efficient CPU usage making Charlatan well suited
as a ''bread and butter'' synth even in projects
with a large number of plugin instances.
