Inspired by legendary subtractive synthesizers, MX4 combines several core synthesis techniques in a unified, hybrid synthesis engine that delivers fresh and vintage sounds alike.
As you explore its many banks and hundreds of presets, you'll soon rely on MX4 as your "go-to" instrument. Fat basses, nasty leads, analog pads, vintage electronica - it's all at your fingertips and conveniently saved with your host application projects for instant recall.
Tweaking sounds is fast and easy with clearly presented controls in one window - but with a depth and sophistication true synth programmers will appreciate. Create your music with pristine 32-bit sound quality, unlimited voices and unlimited polyphony (as much as your host computer allows). MX4's flexible programming and advanced modulation architecture provide the intimacy of a vintage synth, the flexibility of a modular synth, and the innovation of a virtual synth.
Multi-architecture synthesis engine - wavetable, frequency modulation (FM), amplitude modulation (AM) & analog emulation.
Unlimited voices, polyphony and instantiations (as many as your host computer allows).
Sample-accurate playback (with host applications that support this OS X feature).
Plug-in convenience - all settings are saved with host software projects for instant recall.
Modulatable effects - built-in chorus, phaser, flanger, reverb, and delay effects are integrated into MX4's modulation architecture and are saved as part of the patch.
Three wavetable oscillators - choose from over 90 wavetables with or without aliasing.
Audio input - process any audio signal with MX4's flexible synthesis engine in real time.
Modulatable waveform symmetry - create and automate dynamic changes in harmonics.
Oscillator sync - create hard sync effects, just like the legendary Sequential Circuits Prophet Five and other classic polysynths.
Frequency modulation (FM) - oscillator 3 serves as an FM source for oscillator 1, oscillator 2 and the filters.
Two resonant multimode filters - use low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and notch filters with 4 slope settings for a total of 16 different filter types. Create a wide variety of vintage keyboard sounds. Or stack both filters for 48dB per octave.
Variable Filter Topology - use 14 different filter and distortion configurations to produce over 3,000 different filter topologies, before you even begin tweaking filter parameters.
Six variable waveshape LFOs - each includes adjustable symmetry, rate delay, fade & phase.
Four DADSHR envelopes. Envelope time segments adjustable from 0 to 20 seconds.
Modulation sources - all continuously variable parameters, including LFOs and envelopes, can be modulated by many sources, including track automation, MIDI controllers, LFOs & envelopes. Simply choose a source from a menu and then option-click the MX4 knob or fader that you wish to control with it.
Open modulation architecture - each source can modulate an unlimited number of parameters simultaneously, providing the highest degree of programming flexibility possible. Conversely, any parameter can be simultaneously modulated by multiple sources.
