Scanned Synth Pro (Now available from the shop)
Scanned Synth Pro is a software synthesizer plugin for Windows (VST) and OSX (VST and Audio Units) is now available for purchase worldwide from our shop at an astonishing price of whatever you want to pay!
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.
If you've heard enough of the same boring static sounds, if you've tired of the same old methods of synthesis, if don't want to sound like everybody else then download ScannedSynth Pro - a step beyond the clones.
The video above was kindly produced by Xenos Soundworks who produce excellent sound libraries for Scanned Synth Pro and many other synths.

What people are saying about Scanned Synth Pro:
Scanned Synth Pro has many fans. Here's what some of them have to say about it:
"...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."
Sam Inglis, Sound on Sound Magazine, October 2007 (Read the full review in SOS)
"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."
Hollin Jones, Music Tech Magazine, November 2007
"Overall imho this is one of the synths of the year. Not much else to say really."
"Scanned Synth Pro is much, much more than a dedicated sound-fx
machine... i've been using it on most basslines in my recent tracks, it
can create great pads and leads... and while there may be some great
emulations of vintage gems out there, i feel this can sound more
alive/crazy-analogue, than many of these..."
"From the first beta release, the unique sound demanded attention; there
was nothing else quite like it... Remember that this beauty is not
designed to replace the bread and butter synths you may already have.
Rather, it is the spice that brings the soup to life."
"well - after some testing i must say is a really great synth. so
"alive" !... This synth gets +10 from Makunouchi Bento !"
