FabFilter's One is a basic, but highly effective software synthesizer. I've only had the chance to mess around with this soft synth as I've only really scratched the surface with it as of yet. I don't own it, which I why I haven't used it all that much yet, and is also why I wasn't involved with installation. This is FabFilter's simplest synth, as their ideas are expanded in their other virtual synths. The interface has just one oscillator, but a serious amount of further control for messing with the sound of this oscillator. It's got sections for a cutoff filter and envelope generator, along with a variety of further parameters for modulation and other purposes. It doesn't have anything out of the ordinary when it comes to a synth, but also isn't really leaving anything out. It's got a really plain and basic interface to control everything, making it as simple as possible to control this synth. If you're new to synths it might be a good idea to have the manual, but certainly not necessary considering that this is a very basic soft synth.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

A producer who I work with has the FabFilter One soft synth on his home studio's system. He's got pretty much all of what FabFilter has to offer, most of them being effects and signal processing plug-ins rather than synths. I don't know all of the specs of his machine off the top of my head, but it's Pro Tools HD based which really says enough about the stability of the system. Again, this is a simple synth anyway so it doesn't take up too much processing power to begin with.

OVERALL OPINION

While it's not writing software synthesizer history, the FabFilter One virtual synth is a very solid, yet very simple one. FabFilter has more in depth synths for those who are looking for something a bit more complex, but for those who just want a cheap and simple soft synth, One is for you. It has a great overall sound that is highly manipulable with the wide range of parameters offered, although there's only so far you can take it with one oscillator. This is the perfect place to start if you're looking to get your feet wet with soft synths, but is definitely useful for more experienced users as well. It's cheap enough where this one is absolutely worth checking out for yourself!
