  • Great Sounding Synth

    by sobrinN
    It indeed sounds really good but it is very cpu hungry though!
  • Favourite Synth

    by Markant
    I bought the synth just to try it out because I am very satisfied with all other Brainworx plugins. And I must say, this has taken off my shoes! I have been doing noise techno for over 20 years and have always been dissatisfied with the filters and sound bending characteristics of other manufacturers. Knifonium not only feels wonderful (sounds weird if you just using a mouse, but i think the feels somehow "free") but the sound is just incredible. No harsh highs no uncomfy noises just pure and evil synth sounds. The UI is in a way unique. It's so simple you understand the idea in no time.
    For now this is my all favourite Synth.

    Bought this more or less on a whim after seeing the praise Junkie XL gave it. It was a turning point for me. Prior to picking this up, I was a guitar guy through-and-through. I never liked synth bass or synth horns and my intention was to use this for pads and background sounds in my productions.
    Instead, this helped change my life. The Berlin bass preset became the first synth bass sounds I ever actually loved, and as I got to know this synth my love for synths opened way up. Now I find myself reaching for this just as often as I reach for my bass guitar and Big Muff.
    This thing sounds thick and mean and powerful. A single well-designed patch is so cool to listen to, it almost seems like a shame to add other instruments into the mix. The feedback section is kind of like a secret weapon, just kind of hiding down there at the bottom of the window. The filter sounds massive, and I often map it to the knobs on my NI keyboard so I can perform with the filter like I do with my hardware synths (which I started collecting after getting this). The arp is incredibly powerful, and one of my favorite arps out there. If you want a cleaner, prettier sound, you can do that too. This reacts like a tube amp, turning up the volume anywhere (including the volume of the oscillators) will add drive, so the cleaner sounds are created by choosing a lighter output saturation on the knob at the bottom-right of the window and then pulling back the volume knobs throughout the interface. Don’t forget also to click on the little screws in the GUI. Some of them have functions like controlling stereo width.
    Also, explore the octave selection switch. I might be hearing things, but I swear you get a different character out of the synth by playing an octave down vs. selecting “-1” on the switch. So cool.
  • A great synth.

    I really love the sound of this synth plugin. It's nice, rich & solid. For me it's great because it holds up on both low & high octaves. I wish I could afford the original, though...

    I have to say that this is definitely a great synth, one can fall in love with it right from the start. The sound of Knifonium is definitely unique, and there are not many manufacturers of analog synth/virtual analog synth VST plug-ins, but for me, Knifonium is outstanding in both sound and performance.
    My opinion is that the Knifonium's sound characteristics are great for making retro-type electronic music (or music styles that require a retro feel, like synthwave), or adding a cinematic synth vibe to the music, or mixing in classic rock , embellished with something eye-catching...but I'm sure its uses are definitely not limited to that.
    Knifonium's interface is clear and easy to use, and while the modulation of analog synths isn't all that easy to pick up, I'd say the automation controls feel a breeze. Thank you Knif audio and Brainworx, and the Plugins Alliance for bringing us this wonderful work:)

    A tube synth? I almost didn't demo this because I was expecting a cheesy gimmick but end up hearing among the most inspirational synth sounds I've ever heard. Just auditioning presets will inspire you to write new songs around them. Make no mistake, this one is not for doing covers, its for doing your own thing at a very high level. TMT? Its the real deal, love it.
