More Sides to a Cube
Spectral morphing resynthesis... try saying that 10 times ;-)

They call it 'The Daddy of all Additive Synths' and who are we to argue. Since it's introduction, Cube has garnered praise from many quarters, and now with the upgrade to version 2.1, MacIntel and RTAS users will be able to get Cuboid, too. The spectral analysis algorithm has also been improved - here's what they say about the recent changes:-
"Features:
- RTAS plugin for Protools 7.x / Digidesign for all platforms including MacIntel.
- Universal Binaries for MacIntel platform compatibility.
- VST 2.4 compatibility.
- The spectral analyzer uses now improved algorithms for much better analysis of harmonic and inharmonic sound files.
- The standalone version (WinXP) allows the selection of multiple MIDI devices.

Bugfixes
- Logic 7.1 stereo version working again.
- MIDI channels 10 and 14 now correctly shown in setup page.
- Occasional clicks when using the built in keyboard removed."
