Dune's differential unison engine allows full control of each unison voice 23/11/10
Synapse Audio has introduced Dune, its new flagship synthesizer for Windows (VST) and Mac (AU). Here's what they have to say about it...
Dune is a massively deep, versatile, high-quality instrument developed for the needs of professional music producers.
The new differential unison engine (DUNE) takes the concept of subtractive synthesis to the next level, by allowing full control of each unison voice. This greatly extends the range of possible sounds, reaching deep into FM and Wavetable synthesis.
Whether you're looking for lush pads, fat basses, punchy kicks, cutting leads, multi-layered pads and textures, complex FX sounds or morphing - anything is possible in Dune!
Despite its complexity, Dune is easy to use. This is because it is conceptually a subtractive synth, hence it will be familiar to many musicians who are used to work with (virtual-)analog gear. It uses the familiar Oscillator, LFO and ADSR envelope sections on the surface, known from many synthesizers. All knobs can be remote-controlled via MIDI for hands-on access.
