Firewalker is a Hybrid Pad System.
Firewalker is a four oscillator synth. Three hybrid oscillators, and one sub-oscillator.
Each of the three hybrid oscillators is set up to use an of over 300 sound sources custom designed to work as pad sounds. Each sound was built using our wave-table generating system - tho' Firewalker is not a wavetable synth in any sense.
Simply click on a sound name and the Sound browser will allow you to select one of the sounds from the categories included. You can also note a sound as one of your favourites.
The oscillators are ideal for making moving evolving, emotive pad sounds, and when you combine three together you can get enormous long-running pads out of single note playback.
The three hybrid oscillators pass through a volume envelope and the wave-shaping module from our wave-shaping synth Shapiro. The audio then passes through a multi-mode filter and on into a sequenced volume gate.
The output of all four voices is then combined and passed through the effects section, then through our "Drift" analog-tuning emulation engine and into a legato system derived from our work on orchestral ROMplers.
Firewalker includes over 100 presets and a randomisation function to allow you to generate evolving pad sounds that are all your own, keep pressing "Randomise" until you get something you like, or tweak a randomised set-up to your liking.
FireWalker also includes our unique MIDI CC Management system and an Arpeggiator with all the classic arp controls.
