Cobalt - Hybrid synth
Cobalt is an hybrid synth inspired by many of the digital synthesizers from the 1980s.
 
Though Cobalt is a purely digital synthesizer, its overall architecture is very much like those early hybrid synthesizers that combined earlier analog technology with newer digital technology.

It features a wide selection of waveforms, most of which were resynthesized from actual hybrid synthesizers, while providing traditional subtractive synthesis capabilities for sculpting its sound.

Cobalt is one of the best sounding freebies out there. It sounds excellent! The hybrid sound engine can make it sound digital cold or analogue warm. I use it very often. I recommend this synth!

I honestly was not expecting much, but man was I wrong and in for a big surprise.... Such a fat, full, nice, smooth, sweet, wonderful sound and sonic character. No wonder it was a commercial synth way back in the past. Thank You very much Leslie Sanford for making Cobalt freeware.

For KORG DW-8000 Lovers! To tell the truth,This SYNTH is EXACTLY the clone of DW-8000. Cobalt has the same Oscllator waveforms of DW's. Can not believe to get this 64 bit version for free. (A couple of years,I have bought this almost 100 dollars,) Now raise your hat to Leslie!!!!!!

Is there a smaller GUI? both versions are the same size, and if like me you have a laptop that displays up to 1366x768 it's next to useless

A little beauty. Good clean layout that invites you to tweek, and also comes with a nice range of preset banks to get you going. Sounds great.

Tested it today. If you search a partner for your Synth1, get it! It's digital, but with a really nicely warm breeze. It doesn't sound harsh in any way, plastic like or metallic. The presets are well selected, to give you a clue of what u get. I didn't test multiple instances for now, neither designing own sounds, but the GUI is really and I'm sure easy to handle and should not punch your CPU in the stomache. Weird, I never before heard about this synth - now it's free and additionally 64bit. Nicey!
