Sonic State’s Nick Batt let us know about new Max For Live software synth, Mono Junction, that they and Meta Function are offering as a free download.
In case there was any doubt, the new synth’s got pulse width modulation out the wazoo. That’s the layman’s explanation, though, so here’s what the developers have to say about it:
Mono Junction can take your tone into new sonic territories. Featuring a novel NegSawPW waveshape, extended pulse width modulation sounds are easily created.
Two saw waves are offset one by half cycle and subtracted from each other. This results in PWM-style sounds not possible with conventional means, via phase shift and frequency ratio controls. These allow you to create extreme PWM and detuned sounds.
Here’s Batt’s intro video for Mono Junction:
