The Tunefish v4 synth
Tunefish on Youtube
The KVR homepage has this to say about Tunefish 4:
Tunefish 4 was developed as a smaller replacement of Tunefish 3 with roughly the same power, it is however not compatible and uses different synthesis algorithms. It was developed for the 64k intro "Turtles all the way down" by demoscene group Brain Control and is available as VST/AU.

  • Improved UI compared to TF3 which will visualize all modulations.
  • Uses an additive synthesis based wavetable generator.
  • The Noise generator can produce any frequency of noise with any bandwidth.
  • Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass and an improved Notch filter are available.
  • 2 ADSRs and 2 LFOs that can be linked to pretty much any important knob using a modulation matrix.
  • Supported effects are Flanger, Chorus, Distortion, Delay, Reverb, EQ and Formant.
  • The effects stack allows for any permutation of up to 10 effects.

Dear guest and Tunefish 4.2 users,

Thanks a lot to Brain Control for creating the nice little free analog soft synth Tunefish 4.2.

I have created some patches for the synth version 4.2 and I will upload the new patch files to this page. Last update: May 17. 2018.

If you want to follow the development of BETA versions please look in Tunefish(beta)

I will also have a list of the files, so you can find and download them, one by one.


Here is the list as a web page.

You can add a new patch to your Tunefish synth without loosing old patches like this.

1. Download the file that you want from my page.
2. Rename the file to a patch number that is not in use (INIT)
3. Save the file in your patch folder, replacing the old file.

Now you can load and modify it like any other file.

If you want a smart tool for changing the patch names, I think this can help you.
