KeyToSound has announced the release of INetSynth, a software synthesizer designed by Max Grønlund. It is available in VST, AU, RTAS and stand-alone formats for Mac OS X and Windows.
INetSynth is modeled after a traditional classic subtractive FM synthesizer and offers many powerful features, including the Resonance Noise Oscillator or "R-Noise" Oscillator - a unique type of Oscillator that enriches the depth of the timbre and can easily give any sound "an edgy attitude".
Classic Oscillator waveforms are covered, but the INetSynth also gives you "Multi" Oscillators - a Multi Oscillator is a stack of Saw Tooth Oscillators that are slightly detuned from each other. This Multi Oscillator stack produces a natural and bright sounding timbre; the INetSynth has many pre-programmed stacks available for detuning and modulation.
INetSynth has a "True Stereo" signal path throughout its entire sound engine - including the Oscillators, Filters, and Effects. KeyToSound claims this "simply enhances the image of the sound and creates a whole new realm of synthesizer programming".
The XWM or Extended Wavetable Memory technology, unique to INetSynth, accommodates playback of presets made with large stereo samples by providing key-maps and individual loop points for both left and right channels of a stereo sample.
The Dynamic CPU Load Management or DCLM manages the CPU load by allocating CPU resources specifically for the oscillators, filters, LFOs, envelopes and effects when they are needed. This enables the maximum performance from your system allowing greater polyphony of complex sounds without having to increase the host application's playback buffer.
When you register INetSynth, an online NetNotes account is created. The INetSynth has a built in browser, connecting you to your online account without the need of a web browser, allowing you to browse the online INetSynth Preset community, audition (play or sequence) INetSynth presets designed by other users (in real time), download/upload/share/buy INetSynth presets and manage your NetNotes account.
INetSynth will start shipping March 20th; it can be purchased for $273 (plus tax where applicable) directly through the KeyToSound.com online shop and through authorized KeyToSound resellers, as they become established.
Demo versions for Mac OS X and Windows are already available.
