|"PolyKB? YEAH!! Man, talk about a synth with LOADS of potential! EXCELLENT WORK!"
Oxium detailed features:
4 available waveforms.
Triangle, PWM Triangle, PWM Saw, Square, PWM Pulse.
Cross ring modulators
Several waveforms can be selected simultaneously for each of the oscillators.
Easy Pulse width modulation in a click.
Drift setting to add more or less unpredictability
Multimode Filter : Oxium multimod filter providing self-oscillating 6 filter types : 12 dB and 24 db low pass, 6 dB and 12 dB band pass, 12 dB high pass .
A special overdrive circuit can be used before or after the filter.
This filter uses our proprietary "zero-delay algorithm", providing a stuning analog feeling.
12db Filter with Formant feature : Oxium provides a second filter, 12 db low-pass, high-pass and band pass, with a new formant behavior. The vowel of this later can be selected but also modulated.
A full parallel/serial audio flow and an easy to tweak mixer, allows this second filter to give a new dimension to the substractive synthesis.
Oxium provide a new, powerful, easy to use advanced sequencer modulator, brought from Le Masque:Delay Xils-lab effect, and adapted to the synthesizer specific modulations.
D-ADSR : 4 special envelopes are available
Added to the standard Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release, Oxium offers a MIDI synced Delay step.
Usefull for instance, to trig a tempo synced modulation, to open the filter a few milliseconds after the amplifier, giving some plosive effects. A wide range of new sounds can be done with this feature.
Two envelopes can loop between the end of the release and the begining of the Attack.
Polyphonic LFO : 3 Standard full of features LFOs are provided by Oxium.
Each LFO can modulate the oscillator pitch and width, the filter frequency and the amplifier level. It also can be used as a source in the modulation matrix.
The frequency can be synced to the Host application tempo, the modulation can also be reseted by the keyboard or freerunning and a fadein function is available.
These LFO can be polyphonic (each voice has its own LFOS) or monophonic (all the voices are using the same LFO)
TREMOLO, AUTOWHA, VIBRATO amount Knobs :
These knobs set the amount of their corresponding modulation (Oscillator pitch for vibrato, VCA level for tremolo and cutoff frequency for autowha).
The internal knob set the rate of the corresponding LFO.
Standart Expression Controls : Two Destination menus are available with a very large choice.
Oxium is available with the following formats :
Oxium is 32 bits and 64 bits plug-in.
Minimum system requirements: 1 Gigabyte of RAM and a 2 GHz processor.
The Oxium is a plug-in and is not yet available in a standalone application.
