Charlatan - free VA soft synth

Charlatan is a free, virtual analogue software synthesizer. At first, it looks like a perfect synth for those who want to learn basic subtractive synthesis - clean GUI, not overcrowded with knobs, sliders. But there's more - it's actually a tiny, little beast well coded (C++), low CPU consumption, very "smooth" controls ie. glide. All in all, it deserves to be mentioned :)
Feature Summary

* 2 oscillators with triangle, sawtooth, rectangle and noise waveforms
* oscillator pulse-width modulation (PWM) and slew rate modulation (morphing between triangle and sawtooth)
* oscillator hard synchronization and ring modulation
* 2 ADSR envelope generators
* 1 LFO
* 3 filter types emulating nonlinear characteristics of classic hardware: 4-pole (24 db/oct) and 2-pole (12 db/oct) lowpass, bandpass
* 3 voice modes: Monophonic with retriggering, Monophonic Legato and 8-voice Polyphonic
* low CPU usage
* 100% coded in C++
* native 64-bit support
