Infected Sounds announces their rompler synth plugin Sphinx 2 is now FREE.
Infected Sounds are known for its various high-quality virtual plugins and synths.
The company even claims, “our mission is to develop high-quality Virtual Studio Technology Instruments for all those musically inclined, whether professional or amateur.”
Now, they are offering their Sphinx 2 rompler synth for FREE.
Romplers are a bit different than regular synths. Rather than synthesizing their sounds, romplers are loaded with various pre-recorded audio files triggered as users play.
While the sounds of a Rompler might not be as distinct as an authentic synthesized sound, they’re helpful for those looking to add authentic-sounding instruments to their productions.
At the forefront of Sphinx 2 is an extensive library of over 1806 sounds that Infected Sounds claims are “all in high-level commercial quality.”
These sounds are divided into 14 categories: bass, keys, pads, and leads.
The sheer quantity of included sounds makes this a useful plugin for producers in nearly any genre of music.
Beyond the sound selection, Sphinx 2 offers numerous effects controls, all within a simple user interface.
There’s a filter control with cutoff and resonance, plus a filter envelope for producers looking to fine-tune their filter with attack, sustain and release.
Additionally, there is an overall amp control with a complete set of ASDR controls, panning, and master output.
Users can also add portamento (glide) and fine-tune the pitch with octave, semitone, and fine-tune controls.
As a final touch, Sphinx 2 includes oscillator selection and an additional tab to add even more effects.
Infected Sounds offers multiple genre-specific expansion packs, such as EDM Sounds and Melbourne Bounce. Each pack is compatible with Sphinx 2 and is available for $15.99 USD.
Currently, Sphinx 2 is only available to users of Windows 7, 8, or 10 operating systems in VST, VST2, and VST3 formats.
