Vember Audio has released Surge 1.2, which includes the first release for Mac OS X, delivered as a Universal Binary for both the Audio Units and VSTi formats. On Windows it is available as a VSTi in both 32 and 64-bit (x64) varieties.
â€¢ Synthesis method: Subtractive hybrid
â€¢ Each patch contain two ‘scenes’ which are seperate instances of the enitre synthesis engine (except effects) that can be used for layering or split patches.
â€¢ Quick category-based patch-browser
â€¢ Future proof, comes as both a 32 & 64-bit VST plugin (Windows PC)
â€¢ Universal Binary for both VST and AU (Mac)
â€¢ Factory sounds: 914 patches, 177 wavetables
â€¢ 3 oscillators/voice
â€¢ 5 versatile oscillator algorithms: Classic, Sinus, Wavetable, S/H Noise and Audio-input
â€¢ The classic oscillator is a morphable pulse/saw/dualsaw oscillator with a sub-oscillator and self-sync.
â€¢ Most algorithms (all except sinus and audio-input) offer up to 16-voice unison at the oscillator level.
â€¢ Oscillator FM/ringmodulation
â€¢ All oscillator algorithms are band-limited yet they still cover the entire audible spectrum.
â€¢ Noise generator with variable spectrum
â€¢ Two filter-units with arrangeable in 7 different configurations
â€¢ Feedback loop
â€¢ Available filter-algorithms: LP12, LP24, LP24L (ladder filter with 1-4 poles), HP12, HP24, BP, Notch, Comb (4 modes), S&H
â€¢ Most filter-algorithms have been improved in v1.2
â€¢ Waveshaper (5 shapes)
â€¢ 12 LFO-units available to each voice (6 are running on each voice and 6 are shared for the scene)
â€¢ DAHDSR envelope generators on every LFO-unit
â€¢ 7 deformable LFO-waveforms + 1 drawable/stepsequencer waveform
â€¢ LFO1 allows envelope retriggering when used as stepsequencer
â€¢ Extremely fast and flexible modulation routing. Almost every continuous parameter can be modulated.
â€¢ 8 effect units arranged as 2 inserts/scene, 2 sends and 2 master effects
â€¢ 9 top-quality algorithms: Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Phaser, EQ, Distortion, Conditioner (EQ, stereo-image control & limiter), Rotary speaker, â€¢ â€¢ Frequency shifter
