Image-Line Releases Autogun – Free Metallic Synth For Windows
Image Line Software, the Belgium developer of FL Studio, has released a free software synthesizer for Windows XP/Vista, dubbed Autogun. Autogun claims to offer 4,294,967,296 (Four Billion Two Hundred Ninety Four Million Nine Hundred Sixty Seven Thousand Two Hundred Ninety Six) presets, just waiting to be explored for their acoustic potential
and personal torture.
Autogun is based on the Ogun VSTi synthesizer that can produce rich metallic and shimmering timbres, although it’s not limited to these sounds as Autogun will demonstrate. Ogun’s distinctive synthesis engine can generate more than 32,000 harmonics, modulated by high-level ‘harmonic mapping’ functions. These synthesis parameters have been put under the control of an artificial intelligence, patch creation algorithm, the reason Autogun can deliver such a huge number of great presets.
Every Autogun is set to start from a unique preset number, so that each Autogun user is assigned a personal starting preset-address, ready to explore. However, users can at any time, jump to a new location in the preset-space by simply entering a preset number. With so many presets Autogun needs no programming, every sound is already somewhere ‘out there’ and just needs to be found. (wading through billions of presets, it’s electronic music waterboarding! —Ed.)
