January 2019, STIX V1.5 Released : We're proud to announce the release of version 1.5 of our acclaimed multi-synthesis StiX Drum Machine.
New in StiX 1.5 :
New oscillators options, new modulators features, new features (Choke, Drag'n'drop), new presets, new effect, and new sequencer options
||9 Choke pairs (HHop/HHcl, Toms Low/Hi, Percs 1/2, BD/Snare etc)|
|Midi Drag'n'Drop Pattern to DAW||You can now using D'n'D to export patterns in your Daw. In addition to Midi Live export/recording allowing you to control external hardware or software drum machines with StiX exceptional XoX sequencer|
||You can insert a compressor pre or post reverb in StiX stereo output. This compressor, inspired by DBX designs offers many compression types, from subtle to pumping.|
|Envelope time dividers
||3 new time dividers (factors) on all 3 envelopes are now available, especially fitted for the tightest drum sounds. You can now perform the fastest modulations on every targets (VCA, VCF, Osc freq. , or any other parameter)|
|Noise Filter & Noise Direct Out
||Noise filter : Oscillator 3 now have it's own filter when the direct out option is active. The Noise filter also has it's own Q parameter, and comes in two flavors : LFP or HPF.
Noise Direct Out : This ability to bypass the main filter gives you access to new topologies like the TR-808 snares, which were impossible to achieve before. (Snare body goes to the main filter, while noise/snappyness bypass this filter). It also offers hundreds of different possibilities for new drum sounds.
|Sample Direct Out||This option allows you to keep the rich frequency content of samples, while adding traditional synthesis components using the analog oscillators, FM etc thru the main filter|
|Sample Start Offset||You can now define the sample start position with a simple offset knob. This gives a much wider sonic palette for each single sample of your collection|
|Sample Reverse Mode||Samples can be reversed. Combined with the Sample Start position offset, this option make any sample much more versatile.|
|Sample Name MouseOver||Use Mouse Over to display the full name of the sample used in oscillator 3 slot|
|LFO One Shot Mode
||You can now use both LFOs as additional envelopes with this mode. You can not only mod the curves of any of the 3 envelopes, but also replace any of them by the lfo one shot, and use this now free envelope to modulate any target parameter with complete control over it.|
