Zone encourages unique sound design in a musical way, showcasing the beautiful idiosyncrasies seen in the modular world. Zone will inspire your modern creations.
Our goal was to create an instrument that encourages unique sound design in a musical way, showcasing the beautiful idiosyncrasies seen in the modular world.
At the heart of Zone’s operation is a powerful parameter sequencer that allows virtually every control to be assigned to and modified by its own independent sequencer, with unlimited lanes.
Amongst its primary features are:
– High quality analogue modelled oscillators with unparalleled sound quality.
– 151 Oscillator types with sub, noise and the ability to load/save unique single-cycle waveforms.
– More than 500 presets designed by some of the world’s leading patch designers.
– 95 global, unipolar and bipolar parameter sequencer lane presets.
– Inventive parameter sequencer with unlimited lanes, each running at up to 27 different rates from 8/1 to 1/128.
– Numerous oscillator modulation modes including Exponential FM (as seen in Roland’s Jupiter 8), Ring Modulation, Amplitude Modulation, Distortion Modulation and more.
– 22 insert FX types, including delay, stereo width, reverb, chorus, flanger, phaser, barber-pole phaser, compression and decimator.
– Many LFO waveshapes including ‘broken saw’ and trapezoid, running freely or at 27 different rates.
– Multiple filter types (comb, notch, phaser, circuit-bent, ‘acid’) with up to 48dB/octave roll-off.
– Extensive modulation matrix with 8 slots and numerous sources.
– Chord, hold note (for easy sound design editing) and unison mode with up to 7 voice spread.
– Fully assignable macro controls for easy performance control.
– Clearly laid out, scalable GUI designed for ease-of- use with one page editing.
Zone can be played in three distinct modes.
In its simplest form, as a feature rich synthesiser with a host of filters, wavetable oscillators with import functionality, extensive multi-effects, powerful modulation matrix and much more.
With a 32 step note sequencer – allowing pitch, velocity, gate, probability and +/- swing to be modified at a variety of rates, synced to a DAW host.
Or with infinite note and parameter sequencer lanes, each running at its own independent rate and number of steps, with complex tools and presets for modifying lane behavior.
