112dB Software has announced Morgana, an authentic representation of an early digital sampler, designed to be musical rather than accurate.
Per-voice, Morgana offers extensively modeled VCFs, amp and filter envelopes. Morgana also features a unique interpolation method which enhances digital artifacts and a preamp to shape each sample, simulating a primitive analog-digital stage.
Morgana is also capable of sampling, either through its own inputs or through a technology called SampLink which effectively allows Morgana to sample from any track in a multitrack environment in a simple and no-hassle way.
Morgana is available at the price of Eur 169, and a free 30-day demo version is also available for download.
