KV331 Audio Announces SynthMaster 2.0
BOSTON, Mass. (MuseWire) – KV331 Audio has announced SynthMaster 2.0, the long-awaited sequel to their semi-modular software synthesizer and multi-effects plug-in SynthMaster. SynthMaster 2.0 has gone through major changes compared to the first version.
â€¢ Layers: In SynthMaster 2.0, every voice consists of 2 layers. Each layer has its own Arpeggiator/Sequencer, 2 Oscillators, 2 Multimode filters, 4 Modulators, 4 ADSR Envelopes, 2 Multistage Envelopes, 2 LFOs, 4 KeyScalers and Distortion/LoFi/4 Band EQ effects.
â€¢ “Analog” filters: SynthMaster now sounds warmer with the addition of “analog” LP/HP/BP/BS filters modelled after the famous “Ladder” filter. Aside from those, 1/2/3/4 stage Allpass and Comb filters are new additions as well.
â€¢ “Wavetable/Wavescanning” oscillators: With the addition of Wavetable/wavescanning synthesis in SynthMaster 2.0, now it is possible to create very complex and evolving sounds using multiple wavetables and sequencing between them.
â€¢ Flexible Modulation Options: It is possible to modulate almost every continuous parameter using LFOs, Envelopes, KeyScalers, MIDI Velocity, MIDI Aftertouch or MIDI Controllers; which makes it possible to create very complex sounds with SynthMaster 2.0
â€¢ Rich Wavetable Content: Aside from the 128 factory wavetables licensed from Galbanum, 320 user wavetables selected from the Muz3um for Rapture patch set also comes with SynthMaster 2.0
â€¢ Rich Preset Content: To show the power of SynthMaster 2.0, a team of professional sound designers formed by Scot Solida, LeLotusBleu Sound Design, Xenos Soundworks, CFA-Audio and KV331 Audio’s own Teoman PasinlioÄŸlu have created more than 500 presets in a wide range of categories/genres.
â€¢ Preset Browser: With the addition of a preset browser users can now easily find the sound they’re looking for by filtering through preset category, music style or preset author.
â€¢ Skin Editor: SynthMaster 2.0 comes with its skin editor which allows the users to customize the look of SynthMaster, or to create new skins with different layouts.
