Einklang is our first synthesizer following a new paradigm of sound generation. Instead of synthesizing sounds like traditional synthesizers according to a set of technical parameters (i.e. amplitudes, frequencies, spectraâ€¦), Einklang re-synthesizes sounds using instrument models. These instrument models can not only be tweaked directly in their musical parameters (i.e. loudness, pitch, timbreâ€¦) but also be morphed from one tone color to another. These key features allow the user to think in plain sounds rather than mathematical equations and to control Einklang with only few musical parameters. The musician can concentrate on musical aspects, while the synthesizer does all of the underlying technical processing.
Morph a choir to a flute, or a guitar to a French horn, or anything you can imagine. For example, if you have a specific organ sound in mind, just take the 3 closest ones and morph around until you find your perfect personal setting.
In the center of the GUI, you'll find the Morph Triangle. Each corner consists of a tone color. The GEM within the triangle allows you to adjust the ratio of all three tone colors while the engine re-synthesizes the sound with every move you make. On the left side, you'll find musical parameters for additional sound modulation grouped in Timbre (Dissonance, Harmonicity) Loudness (Attack, Release, Percussion) and Modulation (Rate, Intensity, Portamento). Located on the right side, there is the Preset Browser with Favorites, Factory Presets and User Presets.
Einklang runs stand-alone on Mac OS X and Windows and also supports all common plug-in standards (VST, AU, RTAS, AAX)
New Features of Einklang 1.2:
* Preset Manager and Preset Browser for Plugin and Stand-Alone Use
Save and load your sound parameters as User Presets or make use of a selection of Factory Presets demonstrating the opportunities of Einklang's engine.
* Louder Engine with a Level Meter and Master Volume Slider
Einklang's engine is now up to 16dB louder, in addition to that you now have Master Volume slider and a Level Meter for visual feedback.
* Monophonic Play Mode
Switch between polyphonic and monophonic play modes. The new Monophonic Mode is especially comfortable for playing single note melody- or bass-lines.
