The Sound Of Serenity

HG Fortune has released Serenity, a synthesizer designed to create various choir and string pad sounds. Here's what HG has to say...
Serenity - what it is and what it is not: This synthesizer is aimed to create various choir and string pad sounds but it is not meant to emulate this or that vintage string and/or choir machine. Though you might get sounds resembling quite nice the flavours of the old machines. Serenity is more about heading towards the future not the past of the old machines. So don't get yourself restricted in pursuing emulations of old machines instead make use of the possibilities offered by this fully fledged synthesizer with filters, LFO, various effects and especially the Twin Etherify effect to create some more stunning flavours to expand your creativity. In addition the internal waveset has been carefully selected to provide you with a wide range of string, choir and vocal waves plus some more complex padsounds. Most of these waves have been processed widely from prior versions and several new waves have been added.

  • 2 x PCM wave oscillators with 128 waves in 2 banks as primary soundsources
