New Geometry-Based Synthesizer, Nylon

Wave Casual has introduced a new geometry-based synthesizer, Nylon, for Mac & Windows.

They say that their goal was to make sound design fun and accessible, by providing an interesting way to explore sound:

“To achieve this, we developed a new synthesis method that uses geometric shapes as the basis for sound generation. This new kind of oscillator lets you define the timbre via a circular path. The algorithm translates this path to sound, preserving aesthetic properties like sharpness, complexity and symmetry.

Each oscillator comes with two shapes, that can be morphed into each other. This lets you easily create complex, interesting, moving timbres, all before the filter.”

Features:

  • Topology
    • 2 geometric oscillators
    • 2 sub oscillators
    • Noise generator
    • Frequency modulation
    • Analog modeled filters with drive
    • VCAs with analog modeled distortion
    • Chorus and delay
  • Modulation
    • 6 freely assignable modulators
    • 3 freely assignable MIDI inputs
    • Drag & Drop modulation assignment
    • LFO and ADSR modulator types
  • Miscellanious
    • Shared online preset library
    • Efficient tagging, and searching of presets
    • In-app help for every parameter

Pricing and Availability

Nylon is available now, as a VST and AU plugin for Windows and MacOS, for 89,99 € incl. VAT.

    1. Yeah, watched both demos, nothing I heard made me want to get it.
      JMO, and I will be open to more in-depth demos, but based on what I heard so far,
      kind of underwhelming to my ears.

  1. ^ thanks for that link to the alt demo. The glassier pad stuff sounds more unique to me than the analog bass sounds.

  2. I was listening for a “new” quality. It does sound clean and nice, but it’s not clear what sets it apart from YASS. (yet another subtractive synth).

  3. Sounds interesting, especially in the alt demo, but I’d love someone to explain what the oscillators do, or to demo them with the effects off and filters open
