Powerfull Synthesizer for Pads, Textures, Soundscapes & Athmospherics
This software synthetizer for Windows offers a wide range of sounds, combinations and rhythmical sequences. It can be used in different styles of music, from Disco, Rock to NewAge and Film Music. You can easily create your own patches with basic sounds, patches with advanced atmospheric textures and even by using sounds from external SF2 banks, you also can create dynamic sequences by using an extensive possibilities of the modulation section. It is not complex in terms of nested modulation-routing but provides some unconventional routing like modulating the amount of a LFO by another one for more vivid textures.
This synthesizer has been developed by H. G. Fortune and Artvera.
Two analog-style oscillators featuring Sine, Triangle, Saw, Ramp and Square(Pulse) waves.
Two digital PCM-wave oscillators powered by 110 different waveforms.
Two filters (24db Lowpass and 12 db Low/Highpass blendable between modes).
Three ADSR-style envelope generators.
Two LFO with three amounts routed to nine different destinations (bpm-syncable).
One Sample & Hold with three amounts routed to nine different destinations (bpm-syncable).
One vLFO (for very low frequency modulations and bpm-syncable)
One specially modulated chorus for the digital oscillators.
One synced Cross-Stereo-delay (with feedback modulated by vLFO, LFO1, S&H or manually).
4 Lazy buttons to randomize different sets of parameters for individual sections and also for the whole plugin.
More than 600 patches in five complete banks, including one new bank from Stanley King. All patches from Aset-2121 are also included.

A low CPU loading. Typically it uses only around 11% on a 2.53 Ghz Pentium 4 CPU running at 400Mhz frontsidebus.
Works on a Windows machine with a VSTi host software installed (for example FL Studio, Cubase, Sonar etc.).
User friendly concept - all control elements are available on a single screen.
The possibility to load external SF2 files into PCM oscillators.
The option to select different MIDI channels.
NEW! 30 Wonderful presets created by Martin Walker - a writer in Sound On Sound, the commercial music magazine.
A quote from a Golden ASET review in Sound On Sound magazine
As you might expect, there are acres of dramatic deep space explorations and inspiring ancient fantasies on offer, but Golden Aset is also capable of beautiful evolving analogue-like pads, as well as incredibly complex yet subtle animations that remind me of the classic Korg Wavestation. Yet like all the best synths, it has a unique character all of its own - I love it, and it's an absolute steal at just $30!

You can download a demo version here. This demo version has the following limitations:
- It contains only 256 patches in 2 banks
- It doesn't have the option to load SF2 banks
- It repeatedly produces a noise sound
StephenM: Thank you too for Creating Golden Aset :o)) It's sounds great! I still don't understand how it works, but the sounds are very usefull and no other synth in my setup can reach this spheric atmosphere!
Robin: Wow what a synth!!! a real beast and still easy and fun to play with. This is the first synth I buy after 10 minutes playing the demo, normally I try to test synths for weeks before I buy them!
Richard: Just to say thank you - its marvellous!!
Steve: I must congratulate you on a very different pad synth. It's excellent and you can quote me. :)
Mark: ..... what a great synth!! .... big thanks for it!
Glen: Your plugin is fantastic! Its already made me watch Blade Runner again :)
David: I am so pleased with your synth! What a beautiful design and so easy to use. I downloaded it just before going on holiday but now I am back I have enjoyed getting stuck in to it. :)
