Purple Monipulator - Vintage monophonic synthesiser ensemble for Reaktor.
The PMo is a PPe without the Ring Modulator and Reverb synth effects, the post effects are LFO Filter Bank and Compressor, it's a 3 oscillator mono synth with a choice of 9 waveforms and 9 different filters.
The PMo has FreeRunning oscillators (FRO's) that deliver a diverse sonic arsenal from 9 waveform generators including sine, triangle, saw and pulse, the waveforms can also be shaped and detuned plus sync and instability can be added.
Each of the 3 oscillators has soft clip gain reduction, so pushing the output level will brick wall the waveform without inducing distortion.
What sets the PMo's oscillators apart is that they are capable of generating multiple waveforms at the same time, mixing a sine-wave with a small amount of pulse-wave is no problem.
Oscillator 1 has a sine-wave generator and a choice of triangle, saw or pulse, the waveforms can be shaped, you can also add a small amount of instability to the mix.
Oscillator 2 has two waveforms, one pulse and one triangle you can shape the waveforms and add instability, you can also detune the pulse against the sine, hard sync is also switchable here.
Oscillator 3 is a slightly different beast with selectable triangle or sine waveforms plus a tunable Pulse waveform, it has a wider frequency range than 1 and 2, you can use it as a low frequency modulator or to add sub frequencies or both, again instability and shape are included, for more details see the PPe.
