Synth Page

Oscillators Section:

  • 32-bit wavetable synthesis with three interpolation modes (DRAFT, NQ, HQ).
  • Full Stereo processing.
  • 6 Oscillators, 60 built-in waveforms, 10 user loadable waveforms, PWM capable in all oscillators with any waveform.
  • Loadable Wavetable Sets: Programs using different wavetable sets can be mixed in a bank. z3ta+ will find and load the appropriate wavetable set when the program is selected on-the-fly.
  • Loadable Oscillator USER Waveforms: z3ta+ can load the USER oscillator waveforms 1 to 6 from standard wave files (.wav). Up to six individual waveforms can be loaded per program, and then transformed by using the shaper as the internal waveform set. It is possible to load different waveforms in each preset. z3ta+ will find and reload the used waveforms when the program is selected on-the-fly. The wave files must be mono, up to 64k samples, in any samplerate.
  • 64 voice polyphonic (CPU dependant) with polyphony limiter and Intelligent Voice Allocation (no clicks when maximum polyphony is exceeded).
  • Full Stereo processing.
  • 6 Oscillators, 60 built-in waveforms, 10 user loadable waveforms, PWM capable in all oscillators with any waveform.
  • Independent Waveshaper for each oscillator with 14 wave transformations: WARP, TWIST, MULTIPOINT, WAVE, SYMMETRY, DRIVE, WAVE, OFFSET, SHRINK, SELFSYNC, BIT REDUCTION, HIPASS and LOWPASS filters, , DC-OFFSET and WINDOW, all fully band limited and real-time capable.
  • Full Legato mode when operation is monophonic.
  • Circular inter-oscillator modulation.
  • Ring modulation, Hard Sync, PM and FM modes for any oscillator.
  • MULTI mode for any oscillator, which turns any oscillator in 8 oscillators (4 stereo oscillators) with adjustable detune.
  • Octave (-5 to +5 oct), Transpose (-12 to +12 semi), Detune (-50 to +50 cent) and Phase (0 to 360 deg) controls for each oscillator.
  • Key sync and Free Running, Normal or Inverted, with or without keyboard tracking modes for any oscillator.
  • Main Transpose, Main Tune controls.
  • Oscillator random tune control with per-oscillator generator.
  • Adjustable Punch control (drum machine-like DC burst).
  • Individual settings for Pitch Bend Up and Down (-12 to +12 semi).
  • 4 Pitch Bend modes: Normal, Up, Down and Hold notes.
  • 4 monophonic/polyphonic Portamento modes: Normal and Fingered, Fixed and Variable time.
  • Two mixing busses for oscillators outputs.
  • Individual Level/Modulation amount control.

Filters Section:

  • 2 Filters, 10 Filter Modes: 12dB/oct LPF/HPF/BPF/BRF, 24dB/oct LPF/HPF/BPF/BRF, 36dB/oct LPF, formant.
  • Individual Cutoff, Resonance, Resonance Boost, Pan, Level and Limiter controls for each filter.

LFO Section:

  • 6 Morphing capable LFOs, 4 global, 2 local (per-voice), all host Tempo Sync capable.
  • 60 Waveforms, 10 user waveforms.
  • Individual Offset, Delay, Fade In, Morph Time, Speed, Tempo Sync and Key Sync mode controls.
  • 10 LFO combination modes: MORPH, ADD, IADD, SUB, ISUB, MUL, MIN, MAX, HALF1, HALF2.

EG Section:

  • Eight 6-stage envelope generators, 1 bipolar, 6 unipolar, 1 main Amp EG, all with adjustable positive or negative amount.
  • Individual Delay, Attack Time, Slope Time, Slope Level, Decay Time, Sustain Level, Release Time controls.
  • Individual Attack, Slope, Decay and Release shape controls with 3 shapes (linear, slow, fast).

Modulation Matrix:

  • 16 row modulation matrix with Source, Range (min/max), Curve, Control and Destination options.
  • 24 modulation sources, including all LFOs, EGs, Attack and Release velocity, Unipolar and Bipolar keyboard tracking, internal functions and polyphony.
  • Min and Max modulation adjustable.
    12 modulation curves, including Linear, Slow, Fast with normal and reverse polarity, and four pitch curves.
  • Over 200 modulation controls, including all EGs, unipolar and bipolar Pitch Bend, channel and polyphonic Aftertouch, Modulation Wheel, Breath, all MIDI CCs, velocity, unipolar and bipolar keyboard tracking, audio input and X-Y pad.
  • Over 60 destinations, including Pitch, PW, Levels, Routing, Pan, LFO and EG parameters, Functions, and many FX parameters.

Effects Page

Drive Section:

  • 6 Drive modes, including Soft/Hard drive, Valve Amp, Smart Shaper and Heavy Metal (local plus global drive stage), individually selectable for both filters.
  • Stereo Decimator (lo-fi).
