VSamplers integrated synthesizer features could make some pureblooded
synths envious. For sound shaping there are two parallel usable filters
with freely adjustable velocity dynamics. The ten different filter types
provide cutoff slopes from 6 dB to 24 dB and the types lowpass, highpass
and bandpass. The target range of the filter envelopes affecting cutoff
frequency and resonance can be adjusted with upper and lower limit to
precisely attain the desired effect.
The various envelope types don't give an edge to just the filter. In
addition to the volume- and filter-envelopes with their (up to) 32 freely
editable points, curve shape and loop, for each sample you have
simultaneously(!) at your disposal:
- 4 free envelopes, each with up to 32 freely editable points, curve
shape and loop
- 4 LFOs with various waveforms and delay/attack/release parameters
- 4 step sequencers with freely adjustable number of steps (max.192),
free patterns including “load from WAV" option, which transforms the
volume progression of a WAV file into a pattern
Each LFO and step sequencer also can alternatively operate at
instrument level. The “load from WAV” function turns the step sequencer
into an “envelope-follower”. This can result for example in marvelously
scintillating pad sounds by e.g. having the filter pulsate in the rhythm
of a drumloop.
Each controller knob has its own little "Analogizer" attached. This
mini-fader allows to add a pinch of analog-like swaying to recreate the
vital ever-changing sound of analog synthesizers.
All envelopes, LFO's and step sequencers can be synchronized to the
song tempo. The included presets for effects, envelopes and modulation
will get you off to a good start.
