The good folks at Sinevibes have a rather novel approach to their latest new synth plug-in, Altenator. Every control of this monophonic synth plug-in is sequenced. Yes, as in "step sequencers".
To tell us more about Alternator, I'll hand you over to the Sinevibes team who are bursting to tell the world about this unique synth.
Monday 9 May, 2016–Sinevibe are extremely excited to let you know about our amazing new synth plugin – Alternator.
Sinevibes Alternator GUI.
Alternator is a monophonic synthesizer with a unique approach to sound creation – every single parameter of its engine is sequenced. It consists of three modules – an oscillator, going into a filter, and then into an effect – but they all have their own separate step sequencers which change every property of the patch in a rhythmical fashion: oscillator waveform and pitch, modulation envelopes, even filter and effect types. Each of Alternator’s sequencers has its own timing, looping and randomization features, making it unusually easy to create motion lead and bass sounds with almost never-repeating patterns.
You can find out more about Alternator's features, watch the demo video, listen to audio examples and get the demo version on our website.
- Monophonic synthesizer with all sound engine parameters controlled via three independent sequencers.
- Oscillator: tracks for gate, waveform (saw, square, FM sine, waveshaped sine), pitch and pitch modulation envelope.
- Filter: tracks for filter type (low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, band-reject), frequency and frequency modulation envelope.
- Effect: tracks for effect type (frequency shifter, phaser, flanger, decimator), parameter and parameter modulation envelope.
- Each sequencer has its own step count, duration, timing, swing, and lag settings.
- 12 separate parameter snapshots in a single preset, switchable via MIDI keyboard or host automation.
- Fluid sequencer graphics that visually reflect timing and swing settings.
- Multiple utility functions for copying, looping and shifting individual sequences or whole snapshots.
- Support for multi-touch gestures and force touch on compatible trackpad devices.
- Support for high-resolution Retina screens.
- Works with any application that supports Audio Unit instrument plugins.
- Supports OS X 10.6 or later running on 32 or 64 bit Intel Macs.
