Cypher2 is designed for deep sonic exploration and expressive performances. It features a vast range of sound design tools and over 1300 sounds, including 500 MPE-optimised presets. Experience an unparalleled level of expression through analogue-modelled oscillators, waveshaping and thru-zero FM. Our signature TransMod modulation system, now upgraded for Cypher2, ensures that every session with this premium synthesizer is a sound design adventure:

  • Analogue-modelled expressive synth.
  • Diverse library of 1300 expertly crafted presets (800 2D, 500 5D).
  • Optimised for both MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) and traditional MIDI controllers.
  • 3 analogue modelled oscillators, FM and audio-rate modulation.
  • Twin analogue modelled filters with 6 circuit models each.
  • State-of-the-art 5D step sequencing & arpeggiator.
  • 30 modulation-ready effect modules.
  • TransMod: intuitive modulation for powerful sound manipulation.
  • Scalable vector interface for retina/4K.

Redesigned For Deeper Sound Design

Building on the powerhouse capabilities of the original, Cypher2 adds an inspiring array of new features and propels the synth to the cutting edge of sound design.

Learn about our analogue-modelled oscillators, advanced filters and effects, state-of-the-art step sequencer, MPE compatibility and more.

Oscillate Wildly

Cypher2's 3 oscillators can be twisted and modulated in any direction, creating vast timbral variety:

  • The realistic FM has linear thru-zero behaviour so sounds stay in tune over the entire keyboard, even with extreme amounts of FM.
  • Morph between waveforms with a single control, or turn them into low frequency oscillators.
  • Further timbral variety via audio-rate wave-modulation, sample & hold, ring-mod, variable-depth sync and tempo-synced beat-detune.

Deep Tone-Sculpting

Experience advanced filtering, waveshaping and effects:

  • A complex oscillator section processed through dual filter-waveshaper stages.
  • Deep tone-sculpting capabilities with 6 selectable filters and new waveshaper models, typically only found in modular synths.
  • Filters modelled on classic analogue circuitry, each with a variety of responses.
  • 6 slot Effects rack with a selection of 30 effects, from distortion and phase modulation to vintage delay emulation.

Movement & Expression

Intuitive modulation, MPE and powerful sequencing:

  • Upgraded TransMod system lets you apply modulation directly to parameters, so keeping track of complex modulation routing has never been easier.
  • A huge variety of polyphonic and mono modulation sources can be used including voice and unison, for advanced detuning possibilities.
  • MPE-optimised step sequencer and arpeggiator allows for endlessly evolving melodies and modulation.

Cypher2 fully supports MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE): sounds can be expressed with natural gestures on the ROLI Seaboard, BLOCKS and other MPE controllers. Assign 5D expression to parameters with Cypher2's 5D TransMod sources (based on ROLI's Five Dimensions of Touch: Strike, Glide, Slide, Press and Lift).


Explore more Cypher2 features:

  • Modulate the master sequencer with 3 mod sequencers and an expanded control matrix.
  • Improved interface with real-time animated modulation, full signal flow visuals and preset descriptions.
  • Default MIDI CC mappings for both 2D and 5D controller types.
  • 6 circuit-modelled filter types, each with a varied set of responses, including a comb filter model with 8 comb types.
  • Scalable interface for 4K/retina screens with a variety of themes.
  • LFOs are expanded with clock-divided sub-LFOs for synchronisation or free-running modulation.
  • Updated envelope shapes for precise control.
  • Feed your creativity with preset morphing and randomisation.
  • Support for microtonal Scala .TUN files.
