  • Mix and morph any combination of instruments
  • Tweak your sound with intuitive performance knobs

  1. Interesting? Hard to tell. Is this just a linear fade between samples (like any 90s ROMpler) or is it some more involved morphing in the spectral domain? There’s no more information on the web-site, nor is there any description of what sounds you get for your $99. Time for the techies to do some marketing 🙂

  2. Had a play with the demo. Very limited (actually no) synthesis options, really harsh sounds that are bad on the ears. Nice GUI, but a poorly implemented sound engine is letting down a cool sort of, idea.

  3. FUN DEMOS! Lots of surprising and delightful harmonic choices. The example sounds and demos are kind of “florescent” — i.e., not subtle. Some of the groove things they created in the demos are just ridiculously funky. It is an unusual approach that seems geared toward a specific groove set.

    I gotta give them high marks for originality.

  4. Too many unanswered questions. What is the method of generating the basic sound? With the mp3 reference, it reminds me of Roland’s Resynthesized PCM, that took a lot less memory than regular samples.
