Arguably the pinnacle of DSP-based digital synthesis so far. It could easily be seen as a Virus C with an added super saw, but the many upgrades point to a revolution, not an evolution! The TI includes multiple oscillator sources ranging from simple sine/tri/saw waves to wavetables (63 to choose from, nicely varied; the 64th wavetable is actually the pure sine wave) as well as granular sources and formants based on wavetables. Supersaw mode is present and allows for big spread saws with a huge unison effect - you can dial in over 100 oscillators per note if your mix (and monitors) can handle it.
Context is a studio-quality reverb that places your instrument in a room, hall, cathedral, metal plate, or less natural surroundings. All of the algorithms are adjustable so that you can get the right combination of pre-delay, reverb time, and frequency response. The plate algorithm gives you control over low- and high-frequency response for crisp, defined reverb even with bass instruments. Gated reverb gives you big booming drums from the 1980's, but is also great for adding power to guitar while maintaining transparency and space between notes.
The Korg minilogue xd module – a new desktop module version of the minilogue xd – is now available. Like its keyboard counterpart, the four-voice polyphonic synthesizer features a hybrid architecture, combining a dual-oscillator analog synth voice with Korg’s customizable digital Multi-Engine and built-in stereo digital effects. The voice structure of minilogue xd is 2VCO + Multi-Engine, 1VCF, 2EG, 1VCA, and 1LFO. The classic analog synth voice architecture is expanded by the Multi-Engine, which features built-in sound generators, but also lets you load third-party and open source options.
The Sequential Prophet X is a potent fusion of samples-plus-synthesis and is Sequential’s most ground-breaking evolution of the Prophet yet. At its heart, it’s a bi-timbral, 8-voice-stereo, 16-voice mono/stereo, 32-voice paraphonic synth with a newly developed sound engine that powers two simultaneous 16-bit, 48kHz sample-based instruments plus two high-resolution digital oscillators — all processed through analog filters. . With 150 GB of internal samples from acclaimed sound developers 8Dio, and all of the powerful synthesis tools you’ve come to expect from Sequential, the Prophet X has a musical voice uniquely its own.
The compact desktop module Novation Peak was created with the direct participation of Chris Huggett, who was the co-author of many synthesizers that have become widely known, for example, Bass Station or Supernova. The creators of Novation Peak set a grand task to make the best among the existing, highest-quality device, made according to all the canons of modern high-tech production. The 8-voice polyphonic hybrid instrument, Novation Peak, has three high-precision digital oscillators for each voice, and is also equipped with an analog filter with switchable slope and resonance adjustment.
