Mr. Alias Pro is a fantastic weird scientific noise factory. It specializes in everything from pulsating static ambience fields through atonal distorted sounds, on to weird nuclear plucked sounds, and desiccated formant pads that sound like they were recorded in a vacant lot on a moon of Saturn. Although it can be used to create more traditional sounds, its utility obviously lies in dialing in that crazy Nyquistian madness. It sits nicely alongside other synths in a mix. The aliasing serves to provide a unique form of playability, whereby various key combinations do not always produce chords but can interact in harmonically interesting ways. There are several "effects" that make it possible to get the most from each patch. Mr. Alias Pro comes with a generous allowance of presets, but I think the most fun is using the random patch generation feature. These patches are really fun to jam with, and the filter's formant mode is quite effective. The UI is resizeable as well, you can drag the corner to make it really really teeny or ridiculously huge. All of the UI elements scale accordingly. An interesting approach to resizing. Detailed documentation is also included. It loaded and ran without a hitch in Ableton Live 8.0.1, and nothing bad happened in the first few hours of noodling around. Using it in a couple slots in a current track. Yummy crispy radiation soundtracks from the dark side of the solar system.
