Steinbergs Hypersonic VSTi
Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, its Hypersonic

Steinberg's press release for the new Hypersonic virtual music workstation was full of heroic metaphors as they are aiming to capture the music workstation market, one of the last bastions still held by hardware instruments. Developed by Wizoo, the virtual music workstation Hypersonic ships with large bunch of goodies: 1,000 patches, 64 effect sections, 32 freely assignable individual outputs and 1,024 voices. - Dependent on your CPU no doubt. The synth engine also comes mightilly equipped with sample-based synthesis, Virtual Analog, FM, Wavetable and Sliced Loop, it also manages to squeez in four more menus to satisfy every appetite for synthesis. And that spells a sonic revolution of sorts: for example, rather than pumping out analog synthesizer sounds by simply playing back samples, its onboard virtual analog synthesizer computes sounds in real-time, conjuring bigger, better and far more assertive sonic events. Ahem, "Hypersonic is so much more than a preset karaoke box. It lets intrepid sonic explorers edit patches extensively, tailoring them to suit every musical situation. Another Wizoo innovation affords easy, intuitive and effective editing: Hyper knobs are intelligent and powerful control features designed to tweak several sound generator parameters simultaneously. With multiple parameter assignments making even very complex tweaking operations a breeze, users can sculpt hip tones in a snap. Performing equally well as a VST and an AU instrument, Hypersonic integrates seamlessly into every platform and all prevalent virtual studio environments." Hypersonic changes hands at a manufacturer's SRP of 399.00 Euros/ Dollars. More info:
