Audeon has announced that it is now shipping its UFO soft synth.
UFO software synthesizer is the first product to implement TransModal Synthesis technology. TransModal Synthesis relies on K-Osc, an oscillator model capable of smoothly transitioning between various oscillation modes like harmonic, noisy or chaotic, and Morphilter, a filter allowing continuous transitions between modes (low-pass, high-pass,…). Coupled with an extremely powerful modulation matrix, UFO’s synthesis engine lets you accurately shape your sound and its evolution over time.
UFO’s key strengths are:
- Simplicity: UFO is very easy and fast to program. Sound programming mostly comes down to placing dots and drawing arrows on control screens featuring perceptually relevant parameters.
- Versatility: UFO’s flexible synthesis algorithms are capable of synthesizing a broad range of sounds from scratch, ranging from complex digital textures to organic flavoured sounds.
- Expressivity: not only is UFO synthesis engine versatile, but most of the synthesis parameters can be modulated by up to eight modulation sources, all at the same time. This gives UFO expressivity, with velocity and aftertouch being able to radically alter the sound, while the modulation wheel can be used to “morph” the sound into a totally different one.
UFO introductory price is $199 (175Euro). It is currently available as a VST plugin for Windows PC and can be purchased online from Audeon’s website. According to Audeon, a Mac version should follow soon.
More information and a demo are available at the Audeon site.
