Free VST synthesizer – MBX3
Welcome to the free vst synthesizer MBX3 by Audio Desk – inspired by the legendary analog monophonic MAM MB33 mkII bass synthesizer. With the very similar layout as the original, the MBX3 has one oscillator with sawtooth or pulse waveform and a sub oscillator with sine waveform, followed by an analog-modelled 24db lowpass filter with modified resonance reaction and passive-controlled overdrive circuit inside the filter. Like the original the MBX3 has a distortion fx unit on the signal output for more aggressive sound shaping. All the features united with 2x oversampling and low cpu demand.

Review by Bedroomproducersblog.com
“The developers have done a good job at replicating the functionality of the original hardware instrument. … This plugin is actually the first ever release by Audio Desk. Considering the quality and the overall polish of this free product, I’m really looking forward to their future releases.”
