H.G. Fortune has released a new software synthesizer for Windows, Astral Dreamer.
Here’s what they have to say about Astral Dreamer:
There are dedicated routing options starting right at the oscillators which can be routed to one of the two filters, a flanger, or direct to the VCA. So you can have a dedicated soundmodifier for each oscillator allowing a wide variety of multicoloured sounds within a single patch very much like multilayered sounds.
Each oscillator has got an Additional Harmonics Shaper (AHS) to enrich sound in generating shapeable upper harmonics from the selected wave.
The character of this additional sound ranges from rich choruslike to metallic sounds and can be mixed – also via modulation – to the original wave.
The new waveset coming with Astral Dreamer does contain carefully processed waves to provide a wide variety of soundsources: Synth waves from real analog, virtual analog and digital synths, complex waveforms, soundscapes (mostly image generated sounds), plus some XFx sounds. Besides the routing possibilities there are a lot of modulation options to shape the sound into some intricate motion. And the straightforward GUI provides instant access to all controls for quick editing and tweaking to shape your sound.
Here’s an audio preview:
Astral Dreams is available now for $33/25 Euro. A limited free version is also available.
