Kriminal, an English producer, today unveiled Karnage, a free Windows VSTi synth. (Kareful, Kriminal, or the use of all those K's could get you a Kall from Korg's legal department.)

Kriminal says he wanted a "workhorse" specifically designed for sounds
he liked. He got them — check out the demos for some fat analog
ugliness ready to cut through a mix. Sure, it's another synth with a
couple of oscillators and filter sections, but this one definitely
sounds unique. Karnage is due for inclusion on an upcoming CD +
tutorials from UK magazine Computer Music. (Oh, yeah, sure, Computer
Music has cool synths on a bundled CD and everything but . . . um . . .
the staff of Keyboard is cuter, right?)
