VSTi For Pads, Textures, Soundscapes & Atmospherics


H.G. Fortune has released the STS-33 Space Transition Synthesizer, a new VSTi for Windows described as using a Wave-Transition method, making it ideal for for unique pads, textures, soundscapes, atmospherics & more. A Pro and a Pro Lite version are available.
Programming is designed to be incredibly easy using the very straight user interface with 10 "Lazy"-Buttons for randomizing different sets of parameters .
The Transition method plus the new Super modulation X/Y control pad is said to add a stunning new dimension and motion for an evolving sound - completely changing its characteristics.
Features
  • The basic features: New: Super Modulation X/Y Control Pad to modulate up to 8 destinations simultaneously.
  • New: Step Modulator - even driven by keystroke on non legato play
  • New: Enhanced LFO Section with 6 LFO and SH&H with 5 being syncable to keystroke
  • New: Frequency Split - have lower fequencies to midposition (enhancing bass) while the freqs. above can be panned
  • four digital PCM-wave oscillators powered by 128 selectable waveforms (256 waves in Pro version!)
  • two resonant filters (24db Lowpass and 12 db Highpass)
  • three ADSR-style envelope generators
  • two output channels (F & D) with LoBoost, Saturate, Delay (+ modulation) and Pan to stereo sum
  • 10 dedicated Lazy buttons
The Pro version incorporates loading of soundfonts (SF2) & wavefiles (up to 24 Bit), and comes with a 2nd soundset comprising a 2nd waveset of 128 new waves plus further patchbank.
The Pro lite version is basically the Pro version minus the 2nd soundset.
The 2 voice free version does support only 64 patches per bank and is supplied with 3 banks = 196 patches, the waves of the Lite ver. are stored internally with no option to load different sf2 nor wave files.
