Being a synthesizer enthusiast can be an expensive hobby, even when opting for software and plugins instead of hardware.

Ableton has announced that the Live 12.1 update is now in public beta. This update includes significant additions and improvements to all editions of Live.

Both Sinevibes and Intellijel have released brand-new products recently that should appeal to synth enthusiasts.

Humble, known for its games and software bundles, is back with another pack that will be of interest to music producers and synth enthusiasts.

June has been a busy month for Behringer, with the company revealing several upcoming synthesizers on social media.

Not everyone is able to afford all of the latest hardware and software synthesizer releases all the time, so it’s always a relief when a few affordable or even free offerings pop up.

There are still a few hardware and software synthesizers on the horizon, but for those too impatient to wait, here are some of the latest offerings that are available right now. 

With new hardware and software synthesizers announced regularly, it can be difficult to keep up with everything.

Looking for a great deal on software, synths, and sample packs? Look no further than Humble and Fanatical. These sites, known for their fantastic game deals, also offer software bundles.

Some big names in the synthesizer industry have announced their latest releases, which is good news for fans but maybe not so great for their wallets.
