HG Fortune has released a new VSTi synthesizer - AlioNoctis. Here's what he has to say about it...
In some way AlioNoctis adds up many of the benefits from ProtoPlasm, STS-33 and Atonoise VST/i with the ease of use
many still love with the STS-21. In fact this new VSTi synthesizer by HG Fortune goes soundwise beyond all the
aforementioned ones. So you can expect what's typical for most of HG Fortune synths: Vivid athmos, textures, pads
but also some rhythmicated sounds, all can be enriched by the out-of-this-world flavour of Inferno, Spooks and
of course the highly efficient Bass Enhancer.
This is a new mark- and milestone in the VSTi synthesizer development by HG Fortune. Pro Version basic features:
three digital PCM-wave oscillators powered by 128 selectable waveforms (as external sf2 file)
3rd oscillator with 8 slot wavemorphing selectable
Oscillator Mix via X/Y Pad and various modulations
two resonant filters (24db Lowpass and 12db Highpass)
three ADSR-style envelope generators
Inferno for adding generated upper harmonics
Spook 1 & 2 effects with X/Y Pad and various modulations
Super Modulation X/Y Control Pad to modulate up to 10 destinations simultaneuosly
LFO Section with 7 LFO plus one Sample & Hold most with bpm synced tempo and key sync
very efficient Bass Enhancer
8 dedicated Lazy buttons
Straight and easy access for editing on the GUI
Of course the free version does not have all the benefits of the Pro version, so there are only:
5 voices instead of 10
64 patches for the internal bank - though 3 add. banks of 64 patches come with the free version.
only one Lazy button for all related parameters instead of 8 incl. 7 for dedicated sections.
In general I did increase the number of voices for the free version but reduced
the number of patches per bank though I did enable loading of sf2 files for two slots.
As a last minute decision the free version has 128 waves too simply to retain
patchcompability to the Pro version.
And, yes, most important: The free version has a censored GUI in this case. Pricing and Availability:
AlioNoctis Pro is available in an introductionary offer until April, 15th '09 for 29 EuroMore information:
