Sunrizer developer BeepStreet has introduced Zeeon – a new iPad synthesizer based on an analog circuit modelling engine.
The developers say that analog circuit modeling allows for “pure, organic and detailed sound”.
Here are a few examples of Zeeon in action:
- Audio Unit v3 and standalone application with a simple polyphonic step sequencer
- 2 oscillators with continuously variable waveforms, hard-sync and sub-oscillator. Carefully simulated analog drift and PSU influence.
- Filter: 3 models available: Transistor ladder low pass, OTA cascade low pass and State Variable Filter with continuously variable LP-HP + BP mode.
- 2 low frequency oscillators and envelope generators per voice.
- Overdrive: diode clipper and transistor saturation, pre and post filter.
- Up to 2 layers per voice. Layers can modulate each other.
- Powerful modulation matrix offering self-modulation and cross-layer modulation, 8 modulation slots, 17 signal sources and 41 targets available, both from modulation modules and audio signal path. This takes Zeeon into semi-modular territory. Imagine oscillator waveform, panning, filter cutoff, resonance or LP-HP mode modulated by oscillators or another layer!
- Effects unit: Circuit modelled BBD chorus, bass booster, zero-delay Phaser, Stereo delay and Reverb.
- 144 presets and Tutorials bank.
Note: A 64-bit iPad is required, and the developers say that Zeeon is demanding on CPU, because the analog circuit modeling requires solving millions of nonlinear equations in every second.
Pricing and Availability
Zeeon is available now for US $9.99.
