Eventide and Newfangled update Generate to v1.2


Newfangled Audio's flagship polyphonic synthesizer—Generate—is getting its first major update to version 1.2. Here's what they say:

Building up from the instrument's already robust feature offerings, presets, and sounds—which are as useful as they are easy to use—this synth, based on a chaos generator (oscillator), can be used in 1, 4, or 8 voice modes, all of which are routable through the onboard effects: eq, limiter, chorus, delay, and reverb. Create beautifully complex pads, warm moving keys, jittery sequenced basses, out-of-control leads, and otherworldly textures at the touch of a button with the new chaotic generators.

Giving users the ultimate flexibility, the Generate v1.2 update adds three brand New distinctive chaotic generator flavors to the synth. Choose between the Double Pendulum, Vortex, Pulsar, Discharge, Turbine chaotic generators, or explore the New Helix, Crescent, and Magma generators for truly unprecedented synthesis experiences.

The Generate 1.2 Polysynth is enhanced with a great number of user-feature requests, as well as sound generation additions, more precise and creative controls. To explore this latest version, we created a fully composed piece of music using only the New Presets in the Generate.

Charting the entirely New aural waters and vast vivid sonic tapestries with this easy to use polyphonic powerhouse—we are beyond impressed with just how quickly it was to download, install, and call up distinctive sounds, timbres, and textures for use in a song instantly.
