trancedrive

TranceDrive is a new free software synthesizer for Windows that’s designed specifically for making trance music.

TranceDrives offers supersaw oscillators, “harsh” filters, a trance gate and massive reverb.

If you’ve used TranceDrive, leave a comment with your thoughts!

Features:

  • 3 main oscillators
    • each main oscillator supports 6  waveforms: sine, saw, triangle, pulse, saw7, cry
      • the waveform “saw7? is a supersaw with 7 detunable sub oscillators
      • the waveform “cry” is an experimental waveform, it is built up with several hardsynced saws
    • main oscillator 2 has an additional unisono mode, when it is enabled, the whole oscillator triples its voice and the voices can be detuned from each other
    • the oscillators can be chained (osc1 to osc2 and osc2 to osc3) using FM, PM and sync, these 3 options can also be used at the same time
  • seperate noise oscillator
  • 3 LFOs, each supports 5 waveforms: sine, saw, triangle, pulse, sample and hold
    • the LFOs can be synchronized to the host tempo or run free at a specific frequency
    • each LFO can control multiple parameters of each OSC, you can even assign several LFOs to the same parameter
    • LFO1 can control the filter cutoff
  • 2 Envelope generators (Mod & Amp) with variable shapes
    • the modulation envelope can control multiple parameters of each OSC, and it can also be mixed with the LFOs. Additionally it can control the filter cutoff
  • 3 types of filters: lowpass, highpass and bandpass
    • each filter type can be set to 6dB, 12dB, 18dB and 24dB steepness
  • 9 effects, and they can be used at the same time: gater, chorus, phaser, flanger, distortion, delay, reverb, equalizer, stereo-effects
  • each of the unused parts of the synth is shown with less contrast, so you can focus on the active parts
  • the output of the synth can be clipped to avoid overdriving noise. The clipping is done with a soft limiter, that can be used to compress the whole synth sound (just enable clip and turn up the main volume)

  1. I just tried it, and BOY is this thing a processor piggy. Using the .exe version on an old 3.2 GHz P4, I got choppy playback just playing two notes at the same time with the "BS Basic" voice. I will have to try it on my newer computer some time.

  2. Got it. Not bad, but it needs an arp and a second filter. I love the distortion though. It would be nice to be able to rearrange the effects chain as well, but that's probably asking too much.

    I like the gui design as well.
