Filters

  • LP Voca1/ LP Voca2: Two non-linear filters with resonance which sounds similar to the human voice.
  • BP Moog: An analog modeled Moog bandpass with soft resonance.
  • EQ Wide: Soft sounding equalizer which attenuates a broad spectrum.
  • Allpass: A mystic filter that passes all frequencies but alters the phase of the signal.
  • Comb-: A comb filter which is useful for flanging or physical modeling sounds.
Distortion
  • Asymmetric: This distortion simultes non-linearities of old gear.
  • Soft saturation: This distortion sounds like an old analogue tube.
Synthesis modules
The innovative 'Waveshape2' dynamic processor offers an unique and clean sound and adds some kind of vocaloid character.
Effects
  • Trancegate: The impressive and easy to use stereo Trancegate effect adds 22 different rhythmic patterns to your sounds with a single mouse click. It automatically syncs with your song.
  • Reverb Ultra: Is a high-end-quality reverb algorithm, which sounds very soft and diffuse. It is especially suitable for very large rooms and sculpting the proper ambience.
  • 3 Reflection types: The three different reflection types simulte the early reflections of small rooms, reverse echoes and gated reverbs.
  • Aliaser: This LoFi retro-effect drastically alters the sound or adds the mojo of old computer games from the 90s.
  • Stereo Enhance: Is a stereo width effect, which expands the stereo field, while keeping the bass intact.

The 315 sounds for this expansion were created by 8(!) professional sound designers: Markus Feil, Bastiaan van Noord, Bryan 'Xenos' Lee, Alusio de Lima, Dajan Izzo, Massimo Bosco, Marco Scherer and Patchen Preston. Pricing and Availability:
