become the spectralis
Musik Messe 2K4 - Walkpaper
Radikal’s brandnew Spectralis Synth provides the advantages of analog,
subtractive Synthesis together with modern DSP based Sound Generation
as well as a pattern based Sequencer which features traditional sequencing
via realtime Input, as well as Drum-Grid Programming and Step sequencing.
the Stepsequencer and the Filterbank together makes it possible to create
previously unheard dynamic sound progressions, which exceed by far what
can normally be expected from a subtractive Synthesizer. The Analog
Filtering Technique truly shows off its enormous advantages compared
to DSP based Systems.
Analog Synth was designed with possibilities offered by Modular
Synthesisers in mind. The advantages of the Spectralis compared
to pure modular systems however are its much more extensive control
functions and the ability to fully store all selected routings.
The Spectralis of course provides everything one would expect from
a perfect Analog Synthesizer: Oscillator Synchronisation, Frequency-Modulation
of Filters and Oscillators, Ring-Modulation, PWM, fat 24 dB Ladder
Filter Effects, Feedback, Crossmodulation and so on. All of these
features of the Analogsynth by themselves would justify the purchase
of this ingenious Hybrid Instrument.
doesn’t end there though! In addition the Spectralis’ DSP Sound Engine
delivers complementary polyphonic tracks and drum sounds. The Spectralis
has an open DSP System, which means additional Synthesis Algorithms
can be added via Software Upgrades. Due to the ability to store up to
96 Mbytes of the User’s own samples, maximum possibilities for personal
soundcreation are available.
The Operating Surface of the Spectralis makes it easy to take advantage
of all the fantastic features inside. All of the encoders of the Spectralis
have a push button function which calls up additional parameters directly
to the display for easy editing. Numerous Operating Macros provide the
User with shortcuts to perform dramatic Sound Changes with just one
encoder. The Sequencer has been optimized for ”realtime” operation.
Accordingly this allows for making adjustments and changes to sequenced
patterns during LIVE playback and to change drum grooves or sequencer
lines ”on the fly”. It is also possible to recall synth configurations
at the push of a button – no matter how complex – thus surprise your
audience with never before heard sound structures.
As icing on the cake the Spectralis also provides an expandable DSP
based effects section.

New Monosynth From Quasimidi Guy The Spectron

RealPlayer Tucked away at the back of hall 5.1, you wouldn't say that
this new synth was making a big splash at the Messe. In fact, we nearly
missed it. If it wasn't for the interesting sounds emanating from the
stand populated with the nifty SAC control surfaces, it wouldn't have
had a second glance. Its not as if the new Spectron synthesizer from Radikal
Technologies isn't eye catching. We figure it's around 5-6 units high!
At present (this is still
a prototype), it's a monosynth 3 osc with a 32 track high resolution sequencer,
10 (or possibly more) BPF (Band Pass Filters) plus a multimode 24dB/oct
filter. The Sequencer will be able to trigger envelopes and fade between
steps giving minutes of possible sound evolution. Jorg Schaaf, is no newcomer
to synth design, formerly of the sadly defunct Quasimidi. As we say this
machine is till under development but should be making an appearance later
on in the year in it's final form.
it seems to be the spectralis ...
