Tranzistow synth

Postby tavasti » Thu Sep 12, 2019 8:23 am

Tranzistow is synth which has really tons of features. It is definitely not 'easy to start' thing, but something for real hardcore synth freaks. Comes with decent complimentary 3700 presets :-o in case you don't want to start crafting your sound from zero. UI is dense, but for such amount of parameters, only way to make it possible it pack it tight. Only available as standalone program, no plugin.

To get started, download linux-version, and run it once. After it you get default .config/Tranzistow/Tranzistow.ini
If you don't wan't default ALSA mode, but Jack, add there :

Code: Select all

[Audio]
Driver=Jack


Then launch, connect your midi, and start fiddling, everything!

About those presets. Quickly trying out 100 of those, and they seem to be mostly great. So even for 'not so hardcore' synth people, this can be usefull tool with just using presets.

Checking more presets, and it sounds there is many same kind of patches. With unorganized 3700 sounds, with plenty of duplicates is not most usefull set.

Ok, signal flow and meaning of parameters / buttons is far from intuitive, even after reading some amount of provided pdf. For example, with initial patch, could not get osc2 sound out. And tried also modifying some existing patch, and not too much luck with that one. I suppose I give up.
