Klevgränd Releases Hillman - Vintage Combo Synth

If you want a synth inspired by old combo-organs, string machines and similar vintage gear, then the new Hillman from Klevgrand for desktop and iOS platforms could be the plugin you're looking for.  

After several effect plugin releases, it is now finally time for Klevgrand to release a new software instrument. Hillman is a synthlike instrument that is inspired by old combo-organs and string machines. It is not replicating vintage gear, but rather aims to add a new color to the modern producer’s sound palette. Hillman gives you lush warm strings, soulful organs, futuristic synthesizers and everything in between.

It has 4 voices per note, each with selectable waveform (transistor:ish, tube:ish, sine and special plasma), octave switch and a level control. The sound is generated with an analog approach, but does not use samples or sampled wavetables. Hillman also has an intuitive ADSR envelope control, FX section with Chorus, Phaser & Reverb, and comes with many built-in presets.
