Synapse Circuit brings you another great VST synthesizer in the form of...

COBALT OUT OF THE BLUE
You may be well aware of the plethora of free VST instruments and effects on the Web; you may also be aware that many of these freebies can be badly programmed. Great ideas and wonderful looking synths/effects poorly realized can have an adverse effect on your productivity. Nothing worse than a beautiful sounding synth that keeps causing your DAW to crash. Read on!
Behold… Leslie Sanford delivers a Cobalt out of the blue…

Do not worry if, as a novice, that the above means little or nothing to you. It is more important to get in there have mess around. That’s how you learn! I created a patch by fooling around, saved it and recalled it.

Above: Little Cobalt, big Cobalt.
IN AWE
Whenever I install what promises to be a decent free VST instrument or effect, I cross my fingers in the hope that it doesn't crash my DAW. It's worth noting that I'm using MAGIX Music Maker Premium in my ongoing tests. I recommend that you test these VST plugins with different DAWs; what crashes one DAW works perfectly well in others!

Well, that's the nature of these things. In the not too distant future, I'll be reviewing other DAWs! Stay tuned…

I'm happy to say that Cobalt is wonderfully realized. It was created to emulate classic synths of the 80s. Gosh! Cobalt sounds phenomenal!
SWEETNESS
The presets sound fantastic! Sweet! The bass instruments are varied, leads cuts the air like shrapnel flying through the air, and the pads are lush!

Those sounds can be used in any music genre. It's easy to program too! Cobalt is a must have!
SCORE
The graphical user interface (GUI) could have been better but the sounds are delicious! .

Cobalt scores a well-deserved Synapse Circuit Gold!
