New polysynth module storms in

...but will the name need to be changed?      16/09/00

French company Arturia has announced the arrival of a 'long-awaited' module for its Storm soft studio package. 'Technically very complete,' says Arturia, 'this synthesizer combines all the qualities of a classic synthesizer.' And the company would seem to be right: there are two oscillators with a wavetable sweeping system, a ring modulator and a synchro mode; two LFOs; a multi-mode filter; two ADSR envelopes; 128 users presets; and like other STORM synthesizers, you can control the knobs with an external MIDI device, and you can play it with a MIDI keyboard. 'The originality of this virtual instrument lies first in its wavetable morphing system, which works with a 2D controller. Second, in its size: it will take two spaces on the rack.' Arturia plans on increasing the size of the rack in the next version of STORM - an all-in-one studio software made of synthesizers, drum machines and effects, originally supplied with 10 virtual instruments and seven effects - to be able to use more modules at the same time. So what's it called? Morpheus. Hmmm, we thought that name had been used up already, by a certain US synthesizer company...
