Idarca-Audio Intros Acxel II Synthesizer


Idarca has announced the Acxel II, a new synth platform based on the original Acxel legacy from the early 90’s, and utilizes a revolutionary dynamic architecture parallel processor — patented by Idarca — the RPP.

Acxel II offers 3 synthesis modes (with integrated sound processing):

  • Acxelink made up of cells (256 to 1280) independently parametrical: Amplitude, Frequency, Phase, Filter, Waveform. Cells-cells links, signal Inputs integration and processing and many other characteristics including macros.
  • Additive synthesis
  • Analog synthesis

Acxel II integrates unique functions on sound resynthesis and processing with full scalability:

  • Real Time Resynthesis: The Acxelink and Additive modes allocate without compromise a complete access in real time to all elements (Envelope, Midi, Modulation) of a timbre, created from scratch or configured with Analysis (integrated into the system).
  • Open architecture: Acxel II allows, in real time, to introduce external sounds (for example a guitar) into the synthesis elements, for simple effects or extended processes or sound fusions.
  • Scalable: The Acxelink mode integrates all of the elements to emulate and combine existing or original synthesis modes: Physical modeling, Wave Tables, FM, Wavelets, Vocoder, etc.

Acxel II will be available in 2 versions:

  • Acxel II — PCI: Sound Card (PCI) with software PC/MAC a deliverable in 4 to 6 months.
  • Acxel II — SAS: Stand Alone System with “preset” use for scenic performances or in Workstation (with PC or MAC) a Deliverable in 8 to 12 months.
  • Touch Sensitive Graphic console available in option a Deliverable in less than 12 months.

  1. I look at that website and my gut reaction is that there’s no way this thing will ever get off the ground. Just like the original Acxel!

  2. Kent – my gut reaction, too. The site is horrible.

    Everybody wets their pants over the original Acxel, though. Just like they do over every synth that’s unobtainable.

    Time will tell!

  3. Watch out ! it looks they will not be around for long. Have you ever know someone who played it or bought it

    this synth is a pity
