Synapse Audio has announced that its software synthesizer Dune, previously PC-only, is now available for Macs.
DUNE is Synapse Audio’s flagship synthesizer, a massively deep, versatile, high-quality instrument developed for the needs of professional music producers.
The differential unison engine (DUNE) takes the concept of subtractive synthesis to the next level, by allowing full control of each unison voice. This greatly extends the range of possible sounds, reaching deep into FM and Wavetable synthesis.
Whether you’re looking for lush pads, fat basses, punchy kicks, cutting leads, multi-layered pads and textures, complex FX sounds or morphing – anything is possible in Dune! Use the menu on the left to find out more details about its concepts, but most importantly, download the free demo and see for yourself.
Despite its complexity, Dune is easy to use. This is because it is conceptually a subtractive synth, hence it will be familiar to many musicians who are used to work with (virtual-)analog gear.
As you can see on the screenshot, it uses the familiar Oscillator, LFO and ADSR envelope sections on the surface, known from many synthesizers. All knobs can be remote-controlled via MIDI for hands-on access.
Dune is available now for PC and Mac (VST/AU) for $139.
