Klevgränd releases "Tomofon - Real Audio Synth" with intro discount

Klevgränd Produktion

Klevgrand has announced the release of Tomofon, describing it as "a completely new kind of synth".

Tobias Engström, CEO & Cofounder, explains:

This virtual instrument uses a new innovative "Audio Model" format with a unique capability to process very large volumes of waves, extracted from real audio. Whether you want to play around with the included Audio Model Starter Pack (instruments & voices) and presets, or import your own audio to shape your own unique soundscapes – it is fair to say that you are in for a creative journey.

As far as we know, this approach to processing very large volumes of sound waves extracted from real audio has never been done before. It results in a completely new and expressive instrument.

Product Video

There are already lots of synths and samplers around, so why this?

Tobias continues:

Simply put, Tomofon is not a sampler. It is a musical instrument in its own right and doesn't necessarily aim to imitate real instruments or voices. Tomofon introduces a new "Audio Model" format where the generated sounds are seamlessly morphed between different layers and sections of a massive amount of real audio waves. This gives an instantly playable synthesizer that can sound both organic, and like something out of this world. The possibilities of changing the character of the sounds are so vast and multi-layered that it will add a new extra dimension to your music production.

How does it work?

Tomofon converts audio files into a large set of oscillating waves, which then are mapped into pitch zones where each wave represents one layer (a bit similar to how a sampler structures different velocity zones). The main difference is that since each zone is populated with waves instead of ordinary samples, the synth engine can morph between them (both layers and zones). This makes all transitions between zones and layers continuous and seamless. The structure containing these organized wavetables is called an Audio Model and gives Tomofon its dynamic properties and characteristic sound.

Create and share your own unique sounds

A significant feature of this plug-in is that users can import their own audio files and create new and unique Audio Models. Ordinary audio files (preferably with monophonic content) can easily be imported and distributed into different pitch zones over the keyboard range, either automatically or manually. Doing an automatic import is basically a one-click process which instantly results in a proper playable Audio Model. A manual import gives the user full control of which waves should end up in which pitch zone. Last but not least you can easily share your own created Audio Models with others.

What is included in Tomofon v1.0

Tomofon comes pre-loaded with a pack of 124 Audio Models. Included with your download is also over 180 presets to choose from, to get you going right away. From there on you can venture further and experiment with the existing Audio Models, or start using the built-in editor of the plug-in, importing your own sounds to shape and deconstruct. More instruments (Audio Model Packs and presets) will be added by Klevgrand in the future.

Intro Price: $99.99 until January 4th, 2023 (Reg. $129.99).

Compatibilities/formats: Requires macOS 10.10 or later (optimized for the M1-processor), Windows 7 (SP1) or later, running a AU, VST, or AAX compatible 64-bit host.
