H. G. Fortune has updated the STS-26 Space Transition Synthesizer to v3.3, thus becoming the STS-33 Space Transition Synthesizer.
The STS-33 "Space Transition Synthesizer" features the "Wave-Transition" method best suited for atmospheres, soundscapes, pads & textures. A straightforward user interface with 10 dedicated"Lazy"-Buttons for randomizing different sets of parameters makes programming easy. The Transition method plus the new Super Modulation X/Y control pad add a new dimension and motion for an evolving sound changing completely its characteristics.
- New: Super Modulation X/Y Control Pad to modulate up to 8 destinations simultaneously.
- New: Step Modulator - even driven by keystroke on non legato play.
- New: Enhanced LFO Section with 6 LFO and SH&H with 5 being syncable to keystroke.
- New: Frequency Split - have lower frequencies to mid-position (enhancing bass.) while the frequencies above can be panned.
- Four digital PCM-wave oscillators powered by 128 selectable waveforms (256 waves in Pro version.).
- Two resonant filters (24db Lowpass and 12 db Highpass).
- Three ADSR-style envelope generators.
- Two output channels (F & D) with LoBoost, Saturate, Delay (+ modulation) and Pan to stereo sum.
- 10 dedicated Lazy buttons.
Pricing & Availability
STS-33 is available in three versions Free, Pro Lite (€25) and Pro (€45).
- The Pro version incorporates loading of soundfonts (SF2) & wave files (up to 24 Bit), and comes with a 2nd soundset comprising a 2nd waveset of 128 new waves plus 2 further patch banks.
- The Pro lite version is basically the Pro version minus the 2nd soundset.
- The 3 voice Free version supports only 64 patches per bank and is supplied with 3 banks (196 patches). The waves of the Lite version are stored internally with no option to load different SF2 nor wave files.
