SOLO World Synth
Listen to some of our new and updated sounds in SOLO 1.1!
SOLO is the best we’ve used, helping our productions stand out.
Welcome to a New World of Sound.
Welcome to SOLO by TAQSIM, a new virtual instrument that authentically recreates the sound of modern world music.
Whether it is quickly playing presets, tweaking sounds, setting up comprehensive modulations, or trying unique microtonal scales, SOLO is designed to be easy to use. We’ve partnered with musicians and producers from around the globe to include a library of authentic sounds to help you stand out from the crowd. If you want to explore more, you can import your own custom multi-samples into SOLO.
Welcome to a new world of sound.
3 Synth Engines
SOLO includes 3 different synth engines - sample playback, virtual analog, and phase distortion - providing you the ultimate sonic flexibility to blend synthetic sounds with our organic wave sample set.
Then further sculpt your sound with the onboard Moog or Oberheim style -12db or -24db filter and loudness envelope.
MPE & Expression and Custom Sample Support
Express to your hearts content with MPE and expression support with SOLO. If you more sonic options, import your own custom Korg KMP, Soundfont, and SFZ samples into SOLO. This opens up a world of sonic options to play your custom samples through our oriental scale converter and synth engine.
Microtonal Makam Scales
Break free from the twelve-tone scale by dialing in world microtonal scales with an "oriental-style" scale converter. SOLO ships with a huge library of the most popular scales used throughout the middle-east and the world.
SOLO is a cross-platform virtual instrument and is supported both on PC and Mac in VST, AU and AAX formats. This is the only plugin of it's kind that can be used in Cubase, Logic, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, FL Studio and more!
Modulate in the Matrix
The flexible modulation matrix allows you to use the 2 LFO's and other controllers to drive parameters throughout the synthesizer.
Change the LFO type, rate, rate attack, depth, and depth attack to modulate the filter, oscillator, effects, and more!
Use the on-board studio-quality EQ, Distortion, Phaser, Delay and Reverb to shape your sound. These effects are designed to be used aggressively as you hear in a lot of popular world music - so slap on some distortion and delay and get to it!

adding spice to my music.

First of all, i would like to tell you that this is the BEST synth plugin i have ever used.
I think this will be the best synth in the industry for every balkan/oriental composer, arranger or musician.
I am so grateful that there are sound designers and software engineers like you that deliver high quality plugins, that respect and emulate the Balkan and Anatolian sounds at the best level .
Sounds are SO accurate and the GUI is really user friendly that makes the sound design process so easy and enjoyable!
The effects put a brilliant color to the sound especially the delay and reverb.
Keep up your great work guys you really help me becoming better at composing with your sounds
Greetings from Greece
What a great job you did Construction of the first Eastern synthesizer. I am an Iranian , I have always dreamed of making such a dream
So thank you very much for your valuable efforts

My search for perfect middle eastern sounds ended here. These patches not only sound great but also inspire you to come up with some melody that sounds very authentic to its roots.

Thank you for VST .. Live
This Synth is great! I have been looking for a middle eastern synth for such a long time, so when it came out I jumped onboard.
would be nice to have a pianoroll in the GUI that also shows the pitch and modwheel, hope to see that in a future update.
taqsim truely is the gateway for middle eastern music !!!!
