NorthernBeat Daedalus is a freeware VST that can be downloaded directly from the website. It is a polyphonic synthesizer that will work with pretty much any DAW or program that you want to use it with. It works just like your standard VST’s. The NorthernBeat Daedalus was designed for the performer, and has been tailor made for that purpose. You don’t have to use it for a live set though, it will work just like your normal VST will. I have been using Daedalus since 2007 and though its very good, it does still have some issues (which is common with a lot of freeware VST’s). I have experienced several crashes with it on my quad core PC running Windows Vista, and occasionally it will take a while for it to open up and sometimes act a bit strange. All of the main functions of it are easy to access and it is easy to use, I think it may just have a few bugs that haven’t been sorted out.


The NorthernBeat Daedalus is stable one minute then un-stable the next, its very hard to tell what kind of performance I am going to get out of Daedalus when I open it. If it takes a few extra seconds to open then that’s when I know that it will glitch throughout the whole session, I would not be happy with this if I was using it for a live set but because I don’t do live sets with it it’s not a problem to me. Daedalus is very easy to set up and install, I am not sure if you can use it on Macs yet though.


The NorthenBeat Daedalus is free, and of course that is the best part of it, you really don’t have anything to lose in giving this VST a shot. It does have several bugs and I am not sure if they have updated it or came out with a new version to fix those bugs. The sound quality is pretty good though and you can not complain when you don’t have to pay for it. Give it a go!
