Cherry Audio release Sines Synth

Cherry Audio

Cherry Audio has announced the release of Sines, an innovative polyphonic synthesizer utilizing diverse waveshaping to bend pure sine waveforms into variable and complex shapes and sounds. With four sine-wave oscillators, wide-ranging modulation capabilities, and integrated effects, Sines users can create a distinctive array of unique timbres.

The state-of-the-art Sines interface provides immediate access to all sound parameters and comes alive with illuminated indicators, color, and mini oscilloscopes, providing instant visual feedback. The primary sound design controls highlight the "four of everything" nature of Sines: four LFOs with 14 wave shapes, four oscillators, and four envelope generators. At the core of each section are unique sine-wave oscillator waveshaping controls: feedback, phase, width, shape, wavefold, and drive, along with a sub and super sine-wave oscillators. Phase modulation and ratio controls allow oscillators to be configured in modulator/carrier arrangements for four-op DX/FM-style synthesis.

Sines also features a multimode filter, an arpeggio, a selection of effects, a drift function, and an eight-band graphic EQ. Many controls include an adjacent mod source button, and a comprehensive four-slot mod matrix provides modulation options for nearly every Sines parameter.

We've been looking forward to bringing another of our novel concepts to life following the success of Dreamsynth, our first original synthesizer," said Dan Goldstein, CTO and lead developer at Cherry Audio. "Sines was an ideal opportunity to merge West Coast and East Coast synthesis styles in a way anyone can immediately explore to create their own sounds. The unique aspect of Sines is that it's like having three synthesizers in one," added Mitchell Sigman, Lead Designer. "The subtractive aspect processes waveshaped sine waves through an analog-style filter. The additive approach allows stacking of sine waves like a super-powered tonewheel organ. And the oscillators can be configured to modulate each other for classic DX-style FM results. We can't wait to hear what users do with Sines.

Sines is available now from Cherry Audio for $39 (Reg. $59) at cherryaudio.com and authorized resellers, such as the KVR Marketplace.
