Out of Beta and into the shops 01/05/01CronoX (former Omega) is the third member of the GakStoar family. It offers typical GakStoar features like the enormous modulation options as well as new features like the Sample Oscillator or the Sound Shaping Delay unit.
The Omega Sample Synthesizer has a classic fat Analogue Oscillator and a Sample Oscillator. The Sample Oscillator loads WAV or AIFF files (up to 32 bit / 96kHz). The Sample can then be time stretched independent of its pitch and pitch shifted independent of its length. And of course all this in realtime with all modulations options one can expect from a GakStoar series synthesizer.
The 24 voice polyphonic synth routes the oscillators through an analogue modelled multimode filter. As modulations sources it offers three ADSFR Envelopes (like ADSR plus an additional Fade parameter when sustain is reached) and two well equipped LFOs. Of course all common controllers are supported.
Beside this you'll find many more unique features: A complete syncable delay section per sound program, a Spread parameter allowing you to play Polyphonic Unisono sounds with low CPU usage and the ECS for the easiest way of setting up MIDI controllers.
Timing is certainly sample accurate and automation and post processing functions of VST2.0 compatible sequencers are supported. Minimum requirements: 266 MHz PC and a VST2.0 sequencer (Cubase, Logic, n-Track, Orion)
