Audeon releases UFO v1.0
20th December 2005
Audeon has released the Windows VSTi version of UFO
(Unique Filters and Oscillators), a new synth that combines Audeon's "TransModal Synthesis
" technology with an intuitive user interface concept.
TransModal Synthesis relies on K-Osc, an oscillator model capable of smoothly transitioning between various oscillation modes like harmonic, noisy or chaotic, and Morphilter, a filter allowing continuous transitions between modes (low-pass, high-pass, etc.). Coupled with a powerful modulation matrix, UFO's synthesis engine lets you accurately shape your sound and its evolution over time with ease.
UFO key strengths are:
- Simplicity: UFO is easy and fast to program. Sound programming mostly comes down to placing dots and drawing arrows on control screens featuring perceptually relevant parameters.
- Versatility: UFO's flexible synthesis algorithms are capable of synthesizing a broad range of sounds from scratch, ranging from complex digital textures to organic flavored sounds.
- Expressivity: Most of the synthesis parameters can be modulated by up to eight modulation sources, all at the same time. This gives UFO an great expressivity, with velocity and aftertouch being able to radically alter the sound, while the modulation wheel can be used to "morph" the sound into a totally different one.
UFO is available as a VSTi for Windows for an introductory price of $199 / €175; a Mac version is in development. A demo version is available.
