NUSofting Releases Combo Sister For Mac (Universal Binary)
NUSofting has updated Combo Sister, their single transistor combo organ emulation, for Mac OS X Universal Binary.
NuSofting examined the characteristics of the Rheem Mk VII, the Farfisa Compact and the Vox Continental, as a reference point for the sound design of the Combo Sister and then incorporated some new ideas for more creative potential. Unique to this emulation is the ability to have a mix of the Vox + Farfisa sound! This is achieved by a combination of drawbars, timbre switches and oscillator bank selections. Much scientific analysis has been carried out to design the several filters which shape the timbre of Combo Sister, even to the extent of a software simulation of original analog schematics.
â€¢ 2 oscillators banks: transistor “enriched sine wave” sound (for “Hammond imitator” electric organs) and transistor square wave (for buzzer combo!); extra Bass oscillators bank for 16′ and 8′ ranks
â€¢ 6 draw stops 16′, 5 1/3′, 8′, 4′, 2 2/3′, 2′
â€¢ 5 1/3′ can be switched to one of two higher ranks 1 1/3′ or 1′ + 1 3/5′
â€¢ 4 timbre stops: Add (no filter), String, Reed, Flute,
â€¢ Effects: Percussion: switch (special amplitude envelope); Sustain: switch (long release); Tremolo: with Rate and Depth knobs; Vibrato: with Rate and Depth knobs; Booster: smooth analogue saturator with switch and distortion amount knob; Transistor: knob for electric click and analogue noisiness amount; Soft: tone smoother knob
â€¢ Extra controls:
Master Fine Tune: -+ 50 cents
Max Voices Polyphony selection : 2 to 16 voices
MIDI Velocity sensitivity switch
Render Quality switch
â€¢ 128 presets
â€¢ 3D retro graphic interface
â€¢ Support for any Host SampleRate (44.1k, 48k, 96k, even more!)
â€¢ MIDI-Learn function for each parameter (saved on the song or as default)
â€¢ Tremolo now can be synced to MIDI-BMP-Tempo
â€¢ Mouse Wheel support (just place the mouse over a parameter and use the wheel, no click required!)
