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.
Peak is Novation’s new polyphonic synthesiser. It’s an eight-voice analogue-hybrid design with a total of 24 oscillators, a multi-mode filter, analogue distortion, and three discrete digital effects. But behind these headlines, Novation have gone to great lengths to innovate with both digital and analogue technologies. In this preview, we aim to reveal a little more about what’s going on under the hood; what makes Peak do what it does, and how. We’ll explore the new tech developed specifically for Peak, and highlight the point at which analogue and digital converge.
Jupiter-Xm is a polyphonic five-part multi-timbral synthesizer from Roland inspired by the company’s iconic instruments of the past, yet with a strong grasp of what makes a great modern sound machine. Jupiter-Xm is built around the powerful ZEN-Core synth engine, which is capable of modeling classic analog sounds of the Jupiter-8, Juno-106, and SH-101, and various digital instruments like the XV-5080 and RD electric pianos. Four independent synth parts are accompanied by the onboard drum machine engine apt in recreating the popular sounds of TR-808, 909, 707, 727, 606, CR-78, as well as completely new and never-before heard electronic percussion.
