Roger Bobo has had tenures as principal tuba of the Rochester Philharmonic, Concertgebouw, and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras. Watch our videos, listen to the audio demos and you'll see how easy it is to design sounds with this synth. Thus, it comes with 1750 factory presets, ranging from synth to pads, basses to leads, plucks to arps and many more. The patch browser and an alternate skin. Vector Oscillators: A 'Vector' oscillator consists of 4 'basic' oscillators, mixed at different ratios.
Since a patch has two layers, both potentially arpeggiating or sequencing, it would have been nice to have a delay for each. Even more so if the included presets sound good and cover a nice range of synthesized sounds. Spectrum adds waveform—level non—resonant filtering, while Bend provides several means of bending the waveform into new shapes. I particularly liked the dual version, a twin multi—mode offering with seemingly limitless variability. Sync scores firstly by dispensing multiple flavours of spiky, useable sync, and secondly by not costing you an extra oscillator.
The current price will remain active until April 1st, after which the instrument might become more expensive. Digital Filters: The 'digital' filters are biquad filters with a hard limiter in their output. If you are teaching in a different field, you can purchase 'Academic' License from us. Lastly, the oscillator can serve as an audio input, turning SynthMaster into an effects processor or vocoder. Powerful Arpeggiator: The arpeggiator in SynthMaster features classic arpeggiator modes such as Up, Down, UpDown, DownUp, UpDown2, DownUp2, AsPlayed as well as Sequence, Chord and Arpeggiate modes.
The sound engine behind the synth is brilliant and the presets offer me excellent options to start my productions. Preset Browser: SynthMaster Player features a comprehensive preset browser with separate search criterias for instrument type, preset attributes, music style or preset author. It comes with 1250 factory presets. Stereo Oscillators with Improved Unison: Oscillators in SynthMaster have stereo output. I mentioned that the interface, with the supplied skins anyway, is packed.
At times, it does feel like the work of a committee of geeks, determined to squeeze in every synthesis feature imaginable, regardless of the impact on usability. Please try and avoid the rookie mistake I made almost immediately, which was to try an alternative skin without first downloading the manual. Users can edit these parameters to modify the preset's timbre. The digital filters feature a hard limiter that contains excessive resonance. These are yours to mix, mash and modulate in practically any way you see fit. Wavescanning Oscillators: A 'Wavescanning' oscillator is similar to basic oscillator, except that the waveform can be scanned interpolated through 16 different waveforms shapes.
By Paul Nagle SynthMaster might seem like an ambitious name, but then SynthMaster is an ambitious synth. Multiple Skins: SynthMaster Player comes with 2 different skins in different color variations. SynthMaster Player is a simplified version of SynthMaster targeted at musicians who use presets rather than create their own during music production. SynthMaster Player is a simplied version of SynthMaster with limited editing capabilities. SynthMaster Player is a simplied version of SynthMaster with limited editing capabilities. Each can run freely or be synced to the host clock, and if you switch to step or glide mode, the waveforms can be user—sculpted — a great source of complex rhythms.
SynthMaster 'Academic' is same as SynthMaster 'Factory'. Unfortunately, that is not possible. Microtuning: SynthMaster Player supports Scala tuning, so tuning can be set either for each preset or globally by loading from a Scala tuning file. Four mod sources are available to each layer, and these are extra oscillators not far behind the main pair in power. Unsurprisingly, there are a few worthwhile extras too, such as arpeggio patterns of up to 32 steps, each with adjustable velocity, slide and length. Press either of the two layer buttons and SynthMaster shows information related to that layer alone, including a graphical overview of its structure.
