Developer Brian Clevinger (Absynth) has released a demo version of his new software synth, Plasmonic.
It’s available now for both MacOS & Windows.
“Our goal is for Plasmonic to approach the depth and detail of an acoustic instrument,” he notes, “while making it easy to shape the sound into anything you want. Its deep modulation capability and MPE support make it very playable and expressive.”
- 4 audio sources:
- 2 wavetable oscillators with dynamic wave transformations
- A special impulse generator for making the waveguide ring
- A noise generator with its own resonant lowpass filter
- 2 interacting filters:
- A self-oscillating waveguide provides organic resonance
- A multimode self-oscillating ladder filter: LP, HP, BP, 1, 2 and 4 pole, formants filter and LP+HP in parallel and series
- Each filter can take any combination of audio sources
- Can be configured in series or parallel
- Polyphonic saturation
- Self-oscillating delay effects
- Deep, precise modulation system
- Multiple ADSR and LFOs with unique features
- 8 configurable control macros
- MPE support
Limitations of the evaluation version:
- Save is disabled
- No total recall
- Audio stops after 30 minutes
Details on pricing and availability are still to be announced, but Clevinger says he expects to make announcements soon.
