There’s always the odd treasure tucked away at the back edges of the halls at MESSE and this is one that I’m extremely pleased to have discovered. The Future Audio Workshop have unveiled their Circle synthesizer – a wonderfully designed software synthesizer with a unique and simple way of working. Essentially it a subtractive synth with wavetable and regular oscillators – its programmed in a modular fashion, making it possible to add further modules as the boffins create them without spoiling the interface and workflow. Gavin Burke, who’s based in Dublin, gave me a tour and showed just how hands on it is. Their mission is to encourage people to actually program their own sounds and explore the world of synthesis opened up by Circle.

Wasn't this seen on NI Massive already?

Looks nice though.

yeah, thats exactly what i thought. the whole drag-and-drop idea of modulationsources is working just like in massive. Nevertheless, this seems like an interesting synth for beginners. I mean, most sounddesigners would know how an envelope works and dont need to see it. But its very nice for a beginner.

Looks interesting.

Not sure how anyone could comment on the sound of Circle from a low bitrate basic video tutorial tho ;)

I await the demo!

Sounds like shit, low quality audio does not hide that fact.

Can't really judge the sound until the demo. Like the interface though.
