Image-Line Releases Morphine – Additive Synthesizer
Image-Line has released Morphine, a powerful Additive Synthesizer with a logical, flexible architecture that allows you to create any sound. This new VST/AU synth for Windows and Mac OS X was developed by Maxx Claster (Toxic III and Poizone), and is from the same company that recently released Deckadance. Sound manipulation is achieved by adjusting harmonics manually or by taking any input sample and resynthesizing it into one of 4 independent voices.
â€¢ 4 independent “Generators” per voice
â€¢ Keyboard layering with 128 unique Keyboard Zones
â€¢ Unlimited number of harmonic “snapshots” (breakpoints) per spectrum
â€¢ High quality sound engine optimized for low CPU usage and fast amplitude and frequency modulation response
â€¢ Amplitude, Detune, Panning control for all harmonics
â€¢ Filtering and Velocity response for each Generator source
â€¢ Highly CPU optimized, accurate Resynthesis allowing emulation of audio samples with high precision
â€¢ Manual override options for the resynthesis process to achieve most accurate emulations
â€¢ Ability to import waveshapes from audio file
â€¢ Variable-time control for spectra, mix/morph envelopes (can also be linked to key number, velocity or any other controller)
â€¢ 4 PWM Filters (spectral emulation of comb filtering, unison or pulse-width)
â€¢ Additional generator that allows any Noise Sample audio file to be mixed with the synthesized sound, complete with filtering
â€¢ Morphing path, morphs harmonics in real-time, controlled internally or from external modulation source(s)
â€¢ Morphing Square, mixes the 4 Generator sources with a single convenient interface
â€¢ 4 multipoint (EG) envelopes can be routed to many internal Morphine controls
â€¢ 1 to 32 note polyphony, user selectable
â€¢ ADSR master envelope
â€¢ Velocity response is adjustable
â€¢ Up to 5 built-in simultaneous effects: Chorus, Delay, Reverb, Equalizer, Distortion
â€¢ 290 high quality factory sounds
Morphineâ€™s 128 harmonic oscillator engine is fully optimized for producing a high quality, warm sound, with ground shaking bass and crystal clear high frequencies. Based on complex, full 32 bit mathematics, with no internal sampling to avoid interpolation noises so Morphine retains that ‘analog’ quality. The oscillators are also optimized for fast amplitude and frequency modulation response for accurate tone reproduction.
Additionally, the four generator sources can be morphed via the in-built mix/morph envelope or from an external MIDI controller and combined with the four independent multipoint modulation envelopes assignable to many internal parameters. Morphine also provides unison and comb/pulse width filter modulation of the harmonics directly, adding even more motion to the sound.
Image-Line’s Morphine is available for Windows and Mac OS X in VST, Audio Unit and Standalone formats. It is currently available for the introductory price of $99 until the end of July. The full price will then be $159. Demo versions are available. More information on Image-Line Morphine .
