AlgoMusic has released M51galaxy, a new synth VSTi for Windows. Sporting custom SynthEdit modules and hybrid synthesis along with rhythmic algorithmic generators, the M51 can be used for anything from ambient-space to high techno-trance. Based on the modulating system of the M42 Nebula, the M51 offers Phase Modulation, Virtual Analog and FM to create a blend of crisp, warm and metallic timbres. Inspired by the M51 Whirlpool Galaxy in the constellation Canes Venatici - "A galaxy of sound to explore".
