Multiverse Vintage uses 98 multi-sampled instruments created with an Akai SG01v Vintage Sound Module as its sound source. The Multiverse Script emulates a dual synth design which treats the sampled instruments as virtual oscillators. The sounds themselves are a series of basses, synths and pads which represent this often forgotten gem.
Also included is Kosmology Vintage, an Advanced sequencing system designed with live performance in mind. It has 8 sequencer instances which can be switched on the fly from your MIDI controller. Each instance has independent control over 40+ parameters with 5 freely assignable destinations from a list of over 40. Each sequencer also has independent tempo and step size which opens up almost endless possibilities. The sequencers can be played like a regular instrument and are also polyphonic.
The greatest feature however is the ability to sequence the waves (sampled instruments) themselves which brings a unique and instantly inspiring 'sound' to the sequence. There are also a series of live MIDI note triggers designed for manipulating the tempo and sound during performance, a Globals section designed for offsetting parameters across all instances which support VST Automation. There are also 3 programmable triggers which can apply offsets to parameters when the relevant MIDI note is held, and finally there is a Rescaler for forcing sequences to a specific scale for each note in the octave.
Price: Multiverse Vintage is $34.99 and is available for an introductory price of $24.99.
