Vir2 Instruments has announced the release of the first expansion pack for its syntAX instrument, entitled Complex Evolution, which adds another 100 patches to the 2000+ patches that form the core library of syntAX.
Complex Evolution is a free download from the Vir2 Instruments web site and can be easily added to any installation of syntAX.
syntAX is a massive, expansive, and complex collection of electronic textures, covering an immense amount of synth territory, including soaring leads, evolving pads, thick basses, harsh distortions, unusual textures, other-worldly atmospheres, FX, hits, blips, and more. Then syntAX blazes into new territory with its custom scatterFX engine which allows real-time manipulation and interaction with the syntAX core library. scatterFX is made up of two components: scatFX and stepFX. scatFX gives you unprecedented control over rhythmic stuttering, allowing you to program, play, and command rhythmic patterns of syntAX. stepFX functions as an advanced step modulator allowing you to melodically animate pattern-based arpeggiations. Both scatFX and stepFX lock to tempo and can be controlled by numerous external MIDI controllers, making the synth completely interactive.
