Scanned Synth uses a unique new form of synthesis inspired by advances in digital music theory. It is designed to create rich complex digital tones and fantastic sound effects, while using simplifed controls and traditional synths techniques such as filters, lfo's and effects. Perfect for biting metallic growls, movement filled pads, and weird modular-like sound effects, ScannedSynth Pro provides a unique sound that is constantly changing and new every time you press a key. Featuring a revolutionary synthesis engine, combining the powers of both Physical Modelling and Wavetable synthesis, with simplified controls and full MIDI automation, ScannedSynth Pro is both simple and complex, powerful and easy to use.
As usually, don't forget to check the demo version first (host compatibility etc.) :)

"...I like Scanned Synth Pro a lot. I like a synth with an individual sound, and Scanned Synth Pro has personality and character in spades… It seems to create an unsettling, ominous atmosphere without even really trying… SSP is also capable of producing some surprisingly punchy analogue-style bass and lead parts that would work in the most conventional of dance tracks... It seems to produce sounds that fit well into an arrangement, whether it’s surrounded by electronica or live recordings. There’s little of the glassy, unreal quality that can make other types of digital synthesis so hard to work with in a mix... Scanned Synth Pro has already brought a new dimension to the projects I've used it on."Hollin Jones, Music Tech Magazine, November 2007
"When it comes to unusual synth noises, there's a lot on offer in the VST world - and Scanned Synth Pro competes with the best of them... A VST plug-in for Windows, it combines physical modelling and wavetable synthesis to create a new method of sound generation that the company calls scanned synthesis. Using this method, Scanned Synth Pro can create unique and unusual digital tones and sound effects, but its interface retains the kind of terminology and controls that are familiar to synth users."
PRICE: whatever you want (50 euro cents is the minimum I guess - paypal processing cost)
