Triple Cheese ~ Cross-platform Synth


Triple Cheese: Luscious and cheesy, winner of the 2006 KVR Developer Challenge, is a truly unique freeware synthesizer. No traditional oscillators or wavetables, no FM or phase distortion and no analogue modelled filters here. A touch unusual and a little cheesy, Triple Cheese is quite capable of some surprising sounds.

Triple Cheese avoids classic synthesis techniques—no subtractive, frequency modulation (FM) or additive synthesis. Rather, it employs various types of comb filter, often in series, to generate and modify sound. Think of the comb filters as very short chromatically tuned delays. Three modules are arranged in series and either generate their own sound, or process the output of the previous module.

The features for each module can result in sounds that might seem a little “cheesy” or retro (think early 1980s digital synths). But when pushed, you will find Triple Cheese creates some surprisingly lush sounds.

  • 8 different modes per comb filter module (11 modes total)
  • Polyphonic (up to 16 voices), duophonic, monophonic (retriggered) or legato mode
  • VCA with amplitude modulation, pan
  • Skinnable User Interface
  • 170 factory presets
