Spectral is the result of more than 14 years of synthesizer building experience. Someone being familiar with subtractive synthesis will feel right at home with the Spectral, because one can choose an oscillator waveform, choose a filter shape and go on from there. But Spectral delivers far more options than one would expect from the well sorted user interface. Both Oscillator Waveform and Filter Shape can be edited in depth and created from scratch. This unique audio engine is capable of delivering many sounds never heard before.

Main Features:

  • Four Oscillator and Filter modules with powerful yet detailed harmonics and filter band editing and modification functions.
  • Extensive Oscillator and Filter audio rate cross-modulations.
  • Each Oscillator and Filter with own dedicated envelope to control its volume or frequency respectively.
  • Additional 3 freely assignable Modulation Envelopes.
  • Versatile Arpeggiator with in depth editing of every step, including length, transpose, voice number and Glide.
  • Five LFOs with various waveforms, up to 320 Hz, tempo-sync, poly-, mono- and one-shot-mode, unipolar and bipolar options, integrated delay-attack-envelope, phase, symmetry and smoothing adjustable.
  • 15 slot Modulation Matrix with 35 sources and more than 100 destinations including all important parameters.
  • Fully recognizes Velocity, Aftertouch, Pitch Bend, Modulation-Wheel and various other MIDI controllers.
  • A sophisticated effects section containing 15 Effects including various Delays, Chorus, Phaser, Filter, Reverb, Flanger, Gator, Stereo Enhancer, Parametric EQ and Crusher.
  • Glide / Portamento featuring mono/polyphonic operation, constant Time / Rate operation, Auto-Bend Modes and detailed options on where Glide takes place.
  • 32-voice polyphony (CPU and sound program dependent) and adjustable voice limit.

This is perhaps one of the most oustanding soft synth i've ever heard ever since Dune 2, Halion 6, Electra2, Harmor, Alchemy, etc. The possibilities are endless and that i'm barely scratching the surface. One of the amazing things I like about this additive/subtractive synth is it has 4 oscillators and 2 waveforms per oscillators. With that being said you can morph between 2 waveforms for final waveshaping purposes. I look at it as a partial wavetable synth but it would be nice if it were to be a true wavetable synth and being able to cycle through the waveforms. This is only a single cycle synth but has so much potential behind it that your not really missing out on anything. Very good and unusual effects to choose from and apart from everything else it even has microtuning files to choose from so anyone can get really creative and get really crazy. The sky's the limit.

Nice review, Clifton. Another amazing thing about Spectral is the TON of control routings it has!!! An amazing synth - one of the best things I've got in my arsenal and it gets a lot of use.

Thank you so much indeed. For me I think this is one of the best they ever came out and now it's considered my primary synth. So much you can do and even sets everything apart from other synths I tested. Just absolutely amazing it just totally blew my mind.

+1 for this.

it's baffling to me how this isn't talked about much. like a few of their others. like octopus.. i have morphox somewhere. i may have to dust that off and have another look : ].

I think this is a highly advanced synth within it's self and most people don't realize it. I only had it for just a few days and all the sudden I just went nuts over this machine. I;m just sort of tinkering around this and coming up with cool unusual stuffs I programed;).

That's pretty sad to hear that Linplug had stopped production. Anyway I just uploaded new patches for anyone who can use them. Maybe very convincing.

Where did you upload them to, Clifton? I'm interested - even if I do have TONS of patches already! :-).

I just uploaded and updated to 13 new patches. This should be really worth checking out due to more interesting sounds. The name is called CB HighZone.

Hoping someone can help me ! .........I bought Linplug MorphX and Spectral many years ago. Been working overseas for years and never got round to installing the proper versions (the demo versions I have still have that hissing sound every 60 seconds). Im getting back into my music now but have just discovered that LinPlug have been liquidated. Still have the serial Nos. Is there anywhere I can still download these ?
