Cygnus was originally a
collaboration between synth designer Ian Webster and sound designer Tim
Conrardy. Now, spurred on by an off the cuff suggestion by Gearwire’s
own Dan Agosto, Ian has taken his classic free VST and given it new

The integrated mix controls allow you to crossfade between each of the
standard oscillators and the soundfont playback ones discreetly. All of
the soundfont players have individual control over level, mix, and
pitch. Finally, everything is summed into the Cygnus effects line.
