u-he releases Bazille 1.0 - Hybrid Modular Synth for Mac & Win in VST2, AU and AAX formats with Intro Offer

u-he

u-he have released version 1.0 of their hybrid modular synthesizer Bazille for Mac OS X and Windows. Bazille is available in VST2, AU and AAX formats (32-bit & 64-bit).

Affectionately known as "Monster from the Deep" at u-he headquarters, Bazille is a large modular system combining digital oscillators with analogue-style filters and modelled effects, with a flexibility that only modular patching can provide. After the much smaller ACE (Any Cable Everywhere), Bazille is the second spawn of u-he's ongoing Berlin Modular project.

The price is $129 (plus VAT in EU) but it's available now for 89$ (30% off) until October 15th, 2014.

Features:

  • Multichannel MIDI support (for note expression).
  • User interface zoom in 10% steps.
  • 4 digital oscillators with simultaneous FM (frequency modulation), PD (phase distortion) and FR (fractal resonance).
  • 4 multimode analogue type filters with up to 6 parallel outputs each (4 x lowpass, bandpass, highpass).
  • 4 built in effects:
    • Stereo delay with feedback filters.
    • Tube and transistor style distortion.
    • Two classic phaser models.
    • Realistic spring reverb with shake effect.
  • 2 LFOs with 3 parallel outputs each.
  • 4 ADS (S) R type envelope generators.
  • Signal processors: Inverter, rectifier, sample & hold, lag generators and quantizer.
  • 2 mapping generators (waveshapers) with a variety of drawing tools and controls.
  • Morphing sequencer: 8 slots of up to 16 steps, divisible into smaller units via the 4 taps.
  • 2 ramp generators.
  • 4 "multiplex" modules for signal mixing, ring modulation, amp modulation etc.
  • Pink and white noise.
  • Comprehensive tuning and portamento controls.
  • Multiple voice stacking, with individual detuning up to +/- 2 octaves.
  • Single-page alternative skin included.
  • Microtuning support (.tun files).
  • Over 1700 presets.
  • ...and much more.

Bazille is available for purchase and download at u-he's website.

I bought this today and have only played around with it a little, but so far so good. Or maybe so far so great. I didn't participate in the beta, so I've a ton yet to learn, but the presets sound fantastic and it seems almost the case that no matter what I do in the synth to modify them the sound quality remains excellent.

I have an older quad core PC with 8 GB of memory, and it handled Bazille quite well,

The only negative so far is intimidation - there are so many options and so many ways to hook those options up! But that's a good problem to have at the outset - much better than intuitively understanding everything because there's nothing non-obvious about a synth.

So far, at least, not a hint of buyer's remorse. :)
