Digits VSTi is here! Digits is a phase distortion synthesizer inspired by Casio's CZ series but takes that form of synthesis to the limit. Create warm pads, glitchy sounds, dirty basses, filthy sweeps, screaming leads, and anything in-between.

The interface is minimal and designed to enable the user to create sounds from scratch in record time! And, if you're too busy for that, it comes with over 70 lush presets that run the gamut from pads to stabs, leads and basses.

Listen to the wide range of sounds Digits can produce. Every sound in this song was done using this free plugin:

Digits VST can be downloaded at no charge, but if you like what you hear, please spread the word, list it in your liner notes, etc!
