The very cool free cross-platform synthesizer TyrellN6 has just been updated to version 2. I’ve been wanting to post about Tyrell N6 for a while, so this update is a great opportunity to show it some much deserved love.
TyrellN6 was created by Urs Heckman for Amazona.de, a German music production magazine. Originally the concept was for a low-cost hardware analog synthesizer in a similar style to a Roland Juno 60. It wasn’t long before they realized hardware takes a very long time to develop and Mr. Heckman of u-he software stepped in to create a virtual version in just a few weeks.
TyrellN6 is by far one of the best free virtual analog synths out there now. The latest version gets a visual style overhaul and a 3-mode chorus function that sounds really fat, very much like the vintage hardware.
TyrellN6 V2 is VST and AU for Mac and Win.
You can get the latest version of TyrellN6 on the Amazona.de website (German but links are easy to find at the bottom).
There’s a little more information on the u-he synthesizers website.
