Wave Alchemy has announced the release of Spectrum, a hybrid waveform synthesizer for Kontakt 5.
14 iconic vintage synthesizers, 10,000 samples and 175 unique patches; each expertly programmed and combined into a single unified virtual instrument. At the heart of Spectrum lies a collection of synth patches; each lovingly designed from the ground up using a collection of iconic analogue and digital synthesizers:
Moog Minimoog Model D, Roland Juno-60, Roland Juno-106, Arp Odyssey, Korg MS-20, Roland JX8P, Moog Source, Roland Saturn 09, Roland SH-09, Moog MG-01, Korg Minikorg, Korg Poly-800, Future Retro XS and Yamaha DX5.
4 oscillators are loaded with 175 characterful multi-sampled ‘waveforms’, which can be layered simultaneously and transformed into oblivion with Spectrum’s editing and processing parameters.
- 175 unique patches designed on a collection of Vintage Analogue and Early Digital hardware synthesizers.
- Over 250 uniquely designed custom presets in Kontakt Snapshot format with support for Maschine 2 and Komplete Kontrol Keyboards.
- Blend and layer up to four unique patches simultaneously for authentic vintage character or powerful modern sounds.
- 9969 carefully recorded samples at 96kHz.
- HD analogue – All samples have been carefully looped and edited with advanced noise removal to greatly increase the dynamic range many times over the original synths.
- Dice Mode – a unique feature allowing the user to automatically create new and inspiring sounds instantly, in a single click, with hundreds of millions of unique combinations.
- Deeply scripted parameters allow for control to sculpt the sound of the original patches into new, organic and complex unique sounds.
- Internal Chord memorizer (along with presets), including easy and advanced modes for creating chords and stacked sounds.
- Internal 32-step, 9 lane sequencer allowing you to sequence note, pitch, length, LFOs velocity, and all filter parameters independently.
- Full integration with NI Maschine and Komplete Kontrol. Every parameter of Spectrum is mapped to physical controls of the hardware.
