NUSofting releases Entity - Semi-modular Synth for Win and Mac

NUSofting

NUSofting has released Entity, a new semi-modular soft synth designed and produced in collaboration with Sonic Timeworks' DSP master.

The initial release offers the complete 1.0 plug-in in AU and VST formats for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) and Mac OS X for an introductory price of $48. Customers who buy this first release will receive a free update to the full product package in a few months. The update will add more presets, an extensive manual (PDF), and a few aesthetic and functional enhancements, like a new skin (GUI) and more features.

Entity features a semi-modular architecture, offering a selection of modules you can assemble in various ways to create a wide variety of configurations. With Entity you can combine traditional subtractive synthesis with physical modelling generators. A huge palette of oscillators is available, and there are 3 * 14 possible filter selections.

The matrix gives you masterful control over shaping your sound, letting you connect modulation sources to destinations quickly and easily. To give your audio creations a final shine, you also get a flexible effects section.
