The synth engine of CosmosƒFx offers three handling methods which concerns the mapping of the incoming data as the micro event audio content.
And then the micro events process this data with their own parameter space and accumulates the result as meso events to the higher level. Then altogether the meso events construct the macro event which then can be fed back to micro events:
- The direct input mode delivers the live input directly to the micro events being sampled and manipulated synchronously.
- The circular buffer sampling mode records the live input into a circular buffer and each micro event can access to this buffer with different sample lengths set individually.
- The additive synthesis sampling mode offers the data in the circular buffer to each of the 12partials of the Cosmosƒ additive synthesis engine. Their pitch and amplitude balance can bet individually to build fascinating clusters with the live input audio stream.
- Input buffer freezing is possible with a switch.
sonicLAB has also added morphing formant filters to Cosmosƒ vSaturn and CosmosƒFx. Stochastically modulated vowel synthesis is now possible on micro event level.
Below you can watch the introduction videos for CosmosƒFx and the new formant filter feature.
