Xen-Arts has released XenFont, a freeware microtonal synthesizer and SoundFont player in VSTi plugin format for Windows.
XenFont is a two oscillator, hybrid SF2 SoundFont & Subtractive Synthesis VSTi that features full-controller MIDI pitch microtuning using the MTS (MIDI Tuning Standard) format, where any MIDI Note Number can be freely microtuned to any desired pitch across the MIDI range.
XenFont is available for free download via Xen-Arts (33.1MB download size, 32-bit VSTi plugin format for Windows).
The instrument is capable of loading any standard SoundFont file, which can then be processed using the built-in microtonal synthesis engine. Apart from working with SF2 files, XenFont can also operate as a regular subtractive synthesizer.
XenFont features a pre-filter saturation stage with 20 saturation types and two independent filters with six different filter types each (LP4, LP2, HPF, BPF, BRF, APF).
Are any of you guys into microtonal synthesis and sound design? I’m still having trouble with the regular music theory stuff. :)
