It features 11 different music boxes plus wind-up sfx, in a variety of environments and configurations, including dry, concert hall, submerged, glass plate, steel drum, wooden chambers and more. It also includes 24 sound designed atmospheric sustains, pads, ambiances and special effect instruments, plus an array of 8 dynamic FX banks and 10 additional custom instrument presets.
All music boxes can be directly loaded and shaped from within the master preset, with full control over every aspect of the sound, including sound selection, dynamic swelling, note attack, sample start offset, release gating, pitch shifting and key range control for each instrument layer. The note range has also been extended over the full scale, exposing deeper bass tones and crisp high notes well outside the natural limits of the common music box.
Each preset includes the Effects control panel, featuring a parametric EQ for tone shaping and the Uberpeggiator system, capable of freestyle and 32-step tempo-synced humanized groove creation, sustaining rolls, chord- and key-constraint and custom arpeggiation pattern saving and loading. Instruments can be dropped into a wide selection natural and other-worldly environments with our custom reverb controls, with 45 real-world environmental and room impulses and 25 original FX convolutions.
