Inspired by cepstral resynthesis, Universe uses parametric contours in place of analysed data. Universe is, in its present 32-bit form, an experimental synthesizer suited for diffuse timbres and demonstration of simple spectral synthesis efficacy.
Very nice - the UI takes a little getting used to but no big deal. This is not trying to be a do-it-all synth, which I like, because there are tons of them out there already. I like a synth that tries to fill a niche.
