  • Up to 16 audio outputs for each instance.
  • Each instance allows up to 128 layers assignable to 16 MIDI channels.
  • Multiple instances can be opened (**).
  • Q -EDIT allows quick and easy access to key parameters for instant tweaking.

  • 34 resonant filter types (2, 4 and 6-pole lowpass plus various highpass, bandpass, notch reject, peak, phase shifting filters, a voweliser and an assortment of ‘combo’ filters).
  • Special ‘triple filter’ mode offers three separate multi-mode filters per voice that allow you to create your own unique filter combinations.
  • Three envelope generators (two multi-stage, one ADSR) per voice.
  • Two multi-wave, MIDI syncable LFOs with variable waveform phase and shift.
  • Comprehensive modulation matrix that allows you to route up to 35 control sources to over 50 targets.
