Review – Linplug’s Spectral

linplg Spectral is a very powerful synthesizer reasonably priced, too! There are 57 preset filter shapes available, and again, these are fully editable in a graphical display that lets you shape a curve across filter bands. Welcome to SoundBytes Magazinea free online magazine devoted to the subject of computer sound and music production. When you hear MorphoX’s sound sculpting ability, you wont quite be able to believe it. Two of the most extraordinary sound designers we have had the pleasure, and privilege, of working with.

Spectral comes with factory sounds and a number of additional libraries are available. Cinematique Instruments 2 — Bestservice. 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.

Liquid Notes by Re-Compose through Bestservice. The majority of 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.

SaxLab is the result of many years of investigation, analysing the saxophone types and programming. 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.

There is a large editor window for this with lots of ways of drawing and changing waveforms. I want a machine to help me change my mind. Pros Great core-level oscillator options.

Don’t get spectrak in complexity, with MorphoX you just need the modulation wheel to experience as-yet unheard expression and transformation in sound. So far, so normal except maybe for the custom drawing bit. As well as being sorted into categories e. Authenticity, Expression and Variation are all required in order to obtain believable sax sounds.


LinPlug is not only the team, llnplug all the helping hands who are somewhat sectral of LinPlug and our Instruments in alphabetic order: SaxLab was not only the first dedicated saxophone synthesizer, we are sure its still the most expressive one. This is morphing made simple with drastic changes in sound, in realtime, right at your mod wheel. However, the synth is most at home producing evolving and textural sounds, thanks to the easy modulation of the oscillator waveform mix and the cross-modulation options.

And again, all the parameters of those are controllable either internally or by external MIDI. Each oscillator has its own envelope, spectgal auxiliary envelopes and LFOs can control the morphing, as well as anything else.

Image 1 of 3 You can assign up to 15 modulations from a choice of 35 sources and over destinations.

LinPlug Spectral review | MusicRadar

The machine is a very powerful one and it needs CPU power to match it. Punch by Rob Papen Review: But if the idea of hand-designing unique textures right down to the raw oscillator level appeals, with its friendly interface, easy learning curve and linlpug, characterful sound, Spectral could well be the synth for you.

Well, it’s not an iZotope Iris-style spectral synth but instead one built on an additive architecture, fronted by spectraal subtractive interface, making it easy to use but capable of potentially more interesting sounds than a virtual analogue.

Spectral is easy to use yet still boasts endless sonic possibilities. We also offer a number of more specific sound libraries for Spectral. The spsctral 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 llnplug any of the oscillators or filters. What Happens After the Dot? 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 Being LinPlug, of course, there is also a very powerful Mod Matrix with 35 sources and more than destinations.


Spectral has about presets many of which are lovely.

Each oscillator has two waveforms, which can be morphed between. Kick Drum spectgal Sylenth1 Anatomy of a Patch: REmatrix by Overloud Review: Visit us at kiva or click the kiva spectrql to learn about kiva.

Multi-oscillator patches and high polyphony can be pretty taxing on the host system – but we can’t complain about a synth being designed with future CPUs in mind, as long as its sound warrants the DSP expenditure, which, in this case, it does.

The filter drawing also is done on a large editor window with again, many options for changing filter shapes.

Audiobus 3 Music for Tablets: Each oscillator, on its own, or processed through its associated filter can then be sent to any other oscillator or filter to either amplitude modulate AMfrequency modulate FMor phase modulate PM any other oscillator or filter.

Why not test SaxLab for yourself? Spectral comes with a library of over presets divided up into a broad set of categories. Mitosynth from Wooji Juice Music for Tablets: Cubase Pro 8 by Steinberg Review: CRX4 mixes up your samples in realtime like no other instrument. 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.

Studio One and only 2. Our Verdict The fun and accessibility of subtractive synthesis meets the power of additive in this beautiful if rather specialist instrument.
