Without a doubt, Crystal is one of the best sounding VSTis out there. It’s also one of the oldest VSTis and it’s also free for PC and Mac, however the new edition for the IPad, Iphone and ITouch will only set you back 99 cents. That’s a scant pittance to pay for such an amazing soft synth. With an architecture and sound similar to Absynth, you’ll quickly find a place in your soft synth collection if you haven’t already.

Spotted on Create Digital Music, Crystal is also available for free download for PC and Mac from Green Oak.
