Could be the most sonically versatile and powerful Computer Music synthesizer giveaway ever.
Computer Music Magazine, May 2019.
This leviathan of a synth offers up an infinitely deep sonic playground that puts many a paid-for plugin to shame.
Computer Music Magazine, June 2019.
Is this the final synth to rule them all?
This is the best synth I own. Not sure how you make it sound so good.
This is possibly the most value for money I've ever gotten out of a synth.
First impressions... WOW. Best GUI ever. Really like the concept The delay and reverb are good enough to be their own plugins. This is a fantastic product. A glimpse at the future.
The depths of this synth are insane.
Fathom is a Beast Synth. I have not yet seen any other synth with the "leave one out" option for the oscillators.
I honestly feel that this is one of the best most fluid interfaces I’ve ever used, so intuitive!
This is a brilliant concept and implementation of a modular synth with lots of deep control. I love it.
A logical, powerful, creative and musical soundcrafter. Beautifully made. Highly recommended.
Just want to tell you how much I completely love the design of this instrument.
I got the Sonuus GM2 guitar audio-to-midi converter and Fathom is so far the best tracking synth I've used with it.
Won't be long now till you get some glowing reviews from Computer Music and other mags. I guarantee Fathom has a great future and will become a must have synth that’ll be up there with other independent synth developers such as KV331 Synthmaster.
The whole instrument feels fast and solid, so many possibilities in such an easy to use environment. Don't hesitate, this is a superb instrument, it certainly transcends anyone’s definition of a no-brainer aquisition.
Using this synth just for EDM would be a huge waste of its potential.
This is an amazing instrument.
OK, this thing is officially my favorite 'digital' soft-synth right now. Having some time to wrap my head around it and get comfortable, I am really liking the workflow.
Really love this synth and with every update getting better and better.
Fantastic synth. Very nice GUI.
Congratulations on the great progress you have made with Fathom Synth, it is quite a masterpiece and a great addition to the arsenal.
For some reason it seems more straight forward to use than other modular i have tried, maybe its the fact that details are auto-hidden, whereas others blow them in your face directly.
Awesome... bought :tu:
I tried the mono version and it seems easier for modular than others. I like the sound a lot, and the presets are cool. A lot of variety in sound. I really like the pad-like sound to it. It's gui is really, really, nice. If I were to play with modular this one would be it. It's a great starting point.
Supersaw pads, plucks and leads sound very epic.
Just downloaded and started to play with mono version. Wow! Will probably get the pro version later tonight. Nice job. Edit: Bought. Seems like the synth is capable of much more than EDM focused projects.
The GUI is quite nice.
Dude your dedication and responsiveness is phenomenal. Thanks so much for this awesome synth. I hesitate to make a request because so far you've been adding features before I know I want them.
A very fine synth with a very promising future! Love the GUI.
Just wanted to say, that I like the sound of Fathom a lot and I enjoy the sound mangling opportunities!
You're doing a great job, it's fantastic to see such an active development of the Fathom Synth!
I've played with this more and I'm liking it more and more. There are certainly some quirks, but overall I think this has a lot of potential as a sound design tool. I haven't come across a crash yet. Keep up the good work.
Any chance of a 32-bit Windows version?
My entry, subject to last minute changes of course. A little traditional dance music number, expanding upon an unused idea I had laying around. I was waiting for the right synth to come along and the virtually unlimited possibilities of Fathom definitely fit the bill.
Just bought Fathom - it's absolutely brilliant!
The new version works great and I really like the new wave table oscillator!
I'm looking forward to future updates, thanks again!
This synth is absolutely fantastic - lovely morphing/moving sounds with the wavetable oscillator. Great work already, even if it's not finished yet.
I am so happy with this synth, I can't stop fiddling with it.
You have made one of the most capable synths ever created! Thank you, and I wish you the best in further developments!
This plugin synth is major fun.
Just bought your synth without first trying the demo. Fathom installation was clean and simple, and it works wonderfully. Good synth. Good idea. Good work.
This is a fantastic synthesizer, and I'm still very excited where it's going. I've been playing all weekend with the Bezier curves and I don't think I've seen this in any other synth. It opens up a huge range of possibilities.
I really enjoy this modular beast :D
Its modular nature also reminds me of my first vst purchase about 12 years ago, which was the excellent KarmaFX, although your synth is much more varied in its scope of oscillators and also has a much nicer GUI etc.
I finally gave Fathom Pro synth a play today - gee, what lush, pretty and interesting sounds it can produce! Great job.
This is one of my favorite synths. It really inspires me to explore what it is capable of doing.
You have something very special here with your Fathom Synthesizer. The discovery in sound is vast and musical at the same time. Congratulations on a remarkable instrument.
I'm very impressed at how good Fathom can sound with just a couple elements in a simple patch.
I have to say this month was jammed with great tracks and that is a testament to the great sound of "Fathom" thanks for the hard work and effort you put in on one monster of a synth.
Goodness gracious I'm getting some nice patches out of this synth. I'm struggling as to which direction to take. You won't be disappointed by this months submissions dev. The sound quality is gonna be great. A little work intensive and could use some workflow optimizations, but the synth delivers.
One of the most original modular synths ever!
The whole instrument feels fast and solid, so many possibilities in such an easy to use environment. Fence-sitters or people investigating a new discovery, don't hesitate, this is a superb instrument, and with a free mono version, the CM release, and affordable Pro versions, it certainly transcends anyone’s definition of a no-brainer aquisition.
I'm sure you hear this a lot, but Fathom is an excellent and game-changing soft synth. The depth of features and the incredible level of thoughtfulness in design, is unmatched, at least in my experience.
The number of controls in each module is almost mind boggling. I've yet to find a synth with this much fine tuning capability.
I know I've said it before, but this has easily been the best value plugin purchase I've ever made, aside from maybe Reaper itself.
Your synth is absolutely phenomenal.
I think Fathom is the best-sounding synth I've ever heard.
Fathom makes Tuesday afternoon feel like Friday night.
it's me again. I just have to let You know that I am totally blown away by Fathom. I haven't been this excited about creating sounds since I bought a DX7 back in 1986.
I didn't realise I was so fed up with synths crammed with presets that all sound the same.
With Fathom I can do whatever I want, with such precision and it all sounds fantastic. This was exactly what I needed to spark me creativity again, I can't put it away.
It's all working beautifully on my Macbook Pro and I haven't had any errors (I am using your support mail after all) I have a few ideas on how to improve the workflow a little but I'll get back to You on that.
Thank you for this!
With your synth I ended up using far less effects than in any other OSC round since I have started with OSC, because everything is already there in Fathom to control the sound as you like.
And your synth offers feature I haven't seen in any other synth yet. Especially the wavetable Oscillator is fun to play with.
Why the hell the "skip" dial is not to be found in any other synth?!
And now OSC 109 is over, I have to admit that I think I have only scratched 30% of Fathoms features...I haven't even touched mulit stage envelopes at all...can't believe that.
On top of all that you're one of the most responsive and community aware developers I have seen ever! Thumbs up!!!!

Can't say enough good about Fathom! It was a purchase I never regret. And I've purchased a lot of VSTi based synths over the years. Many of them are really quite regrettable one trick ponies.
Fathom is a powerhouse and the sound is truly stellar.
Personally, Fathom is one of my top 5 favorite soft-synths and I even think it beats many of the synths that have been mentioned in this thread in some key ways.
The 2D wavetable morphing is super unique and only recently getting anything even approaching competition from Hive's wavetable features (and Hive isn't fully modular like Fathom is).
I also absolutely love the FFT approach for its oscillator engine, it allows for greater sound design potential and it sounds great to my ears.
For me the per voice distortion is actually the star of the show, not trying to emulate a specific analog synth but turning the unique quality of analog oscillators, i.e. semi-periodic waveforms into an entire set of parameters baked into the oscillator to be used alongside all of the fun wavetable shenanigans.
It's also worth noting how much of a blessing the Bezier curve wave drawing is for someone who wants to make wavetables from scratch additively.
I would even go as far as to say this is a rival to Zebra and MPowerSynth, even the complexity of the individual modules blows me away. Don't sell this synth short.
