The 128 onboard Programs are organized by sound category for fast access. A single R3 Program consists of two complete Timbres â€” each is a complete synth sound including dual Insert effects (30 effect types) and assignable EQ. The Program itself offers a Master effect, plus an 8 step arpeggiator.
Two oscillators offer analog-modeled waves, DWGS waves, noise, sync, ring mod and more. Waveform modulation, Variable Phase Modulation (VPM), Unison voice thickening, PWM and cross-mod expand the sonic palette. Two LFOs and three ADSR envelopes shape the sound and add cyclic motion to nearly any voice parameter. Various modulation sources and destinations can be connected together using the six Virtual Patches.
Dual Filters can run in series, parallel, or side by side (individual for each oscillator). Filter1 features a multi-mode filter covering 24 dB low pass, 12 dB low pass, 12 dB high and band pass modes, with the ability to continuously â€œmorphâ€� between these states. Filter2 offers 12 dB versions of the low, high and band pass modes, plus a unique comb filter.
Additional features include:
Users can manage sounds with the free sound editing and librarian software. A single USB connection allows quick and easy data transfer.
