Big Tick Rainbow

Bit Tick Rainbow was released about ... 10 years ago. It was a commercial product priced at 70 EUR but not anymore. About a month ago Big Tick changed it's license (as well as their other 'old' products such as Angelina, EP-Station) to freeware, which means it requires a some attention :)

Even if it's antique synth, it's still quite interesting. First of all - it was a commercial product. Second - well, this will be obvious - it's ... CPU friendly :) Third - current version is 2.50 while first public release had 1.63 number which means that Big Tick were improving their synth over time.

So, what kind of synth Rainbow is ? It offers quite a variety of synthesis types including FM, AM, additive, and subtractive, and features up to four identical oscillators, and up to 24-voice polyphony. There's Hi-, Low- Band- pass filter, built-in chorus, step sequencer, oversampling - quite nice features for 10 year old product, don't you think ?

There are about 300 presets available - you can find there some analogue leads, powerful basses, FM pads, pianos, bells, arpeggiated sequences etc. Overall, it's quite nice freebie with pretty interesting structure (it's not another standard, boring subtractive synth ;) ).
