And apparently, LinPlug has built a lot of extras into Spectral, including the ability to edit the waveforms and filter shapes that make up the core. LinPlug instruments and expansion packs will remain on sale for the Spectral subtractive synthesizer with mod matrix (additional libraries for. Spectral by LinPlug (@KVRAudio Product Listing): Spectral is the result of more than 14 years of synthesizer building experience. Someone being familiar with.

The Warm n Deep soundbank contains analogue-type sounds by the renowned Himalaya. CRX4 mixes up your samples in realtime like no other instrument. Overall control of tempo, kind of arpeggiation, number of steps, number of octaves in the arpeggio, and swing are all able to be externally MIDI controlled. Samples are only food for CRX4’s versatile and unique engines, featuring 3 kinds of specialized sample processing generators and all the filters and modulations you expect from a fully fledged synthesizer.

This really pushes the sound designer towards highly animated textures rather than punchy, “static” sounds – although Spectral can do those too. The filter follows the same conceptual path as the oscillator, with cutoff and resonance augmented by two cross-modulation slots, enabling the filter frequency and resonance to be modulated by a signal sourced from any of the oscillators or filters.

The machine is a very powerful one and it needs CPU power to match it. The Voice of Renaissance and Cantus: Layout disguises underlying complexity. Well, it’s not an iZotope Iris-style spectral synth but instead one built on an additive architecture, fronted by a subtractive interface, making it easy to use but capable of potentially more interesting sounds than a virtual analogue.

We also offer a number of more specific sound libraries for Spectral. Our Verdict The fun and accessibility of subtractive synthesis meets the power of additive in this beautiful if rather specialist instrument. REmatrix by Overloud Review: As well as the waveform Mix knob, each of Spectral’s oscillators also allows adjustment of Detune, Stereo spread, Symmetry, Phase and up to six-voice unison. The Behind The Sun soundbank brings you another amazing sounds created by Jaan, utterly unique sounds that are quite unlike those by anyone else.


It has up to 32 steps, and for each steps 5 parameters can be adjusted: The fun and accessibility of subtractive synthesis meets the power of additive in this beautiful if rather specialist instrument.

I want a machine to help me change my mind. And again, all the parameters of those are controllable either internally or by external MIDI.

How To Make a Music Video. Each oscillator has two waveforms, which can be morphed between. Spectral is easy to use yet still boasts endless sonic possibilities. Cinematique Instruments 2 — Llnplug.

All products shown on our website are still available to license, but please keep in mind they will most likely not be updated anymore.

If you’re familiar with Subtractive Synthesis, you’ll feel right at home because you can choose an oscillator waveform, filter shape – both of which can be edited in depth and modulated in many sophisticated ways – and carry on from there. Don’t get stuck in complexity, with MorphoX you just need the modulation wheel to experience as-yet unheard expression and transformation in sound.

They also each feature two cross-modulation slots, with a choice of three types of sspectral – Phase PMAmplitude AM and Frequency FM – sourced from any libplug the four spectrzl or filter outputs.


Each oscillator hosts two waveforms, morphed into each other using the Mix control in order to create a final waveshape. There are also many preset filter and waveform shapes and the user can save their own as well.

It’s impossible to remain unmoved by these sounds, each of which will enhance the emotional impact of any film scene.

The majority linlug presets reside in the various pad, drone, ambient and effects banks, and the excellent arpeggiator and sequence patches also boast some lovely tones of a similarly organic nature. And then, like all LinPlug products, it takes TUN files from the free Scala programso that all that timbral power can be played microtonally.


The sounds range from clear and crisp, through complex arrangements, to earthshaking arpeggios and pulse-type sounds which are typical of the powerful electronic style of Ian Boddy. The Psectral soundbank contains “transforming” sounds which change in character with the use of various MIDI controllers. Learn it slowly — it will provide you with many spectarl of composing and timbral exploration discoveries. Izotope Ozone 5 Review: Psectral created sounds suitable for film-scoring and ambient music, ranging from simple to complex and with subtle through to drastic changes in sound.

Linplug Spectral, Soundbytes review

And your voices can have a variety of stereo spreads, which can also be controlled from an envelope or LFO. So far, so normal except maybe for the custom drawing bit. These are adventurous journeys into wild soundscapes but remain highly usable in a musical context – expect the unexpected! Easily create something completely fresh and new from your existing Samples with a number of unique sample manipulations and modulation options. Our most sophisticated synthesizer ever – spectdal one of the easiest to use.

Being LinPlug, of course, there is also a very powerful Mod Matrix with 35 sources and more than destinations.

Image 1 of 3 You can assign up to 15 modulations from a choice of 35 sources and over destinations. The filter drawing also is done linppug a large editor window with again, many options for changing filter shapes.

The result of our 15 years of synth-building experience. Spectral’s oscillator and filter are additively linked, rather than simply chained in series, and oscillator cross modulation can result in harmonics that won’t be quelled by the filter. With LinPlug things don’t need to be complicated to create stunning sounds. Many of the features found on today’s instruments were originally created in a LinPlug instrument, for example the Modulation Matrix in “Gakstoar” all the way back in the year Not ideal for “standard” sounds.
