Audeon is proud to announce UFO, a software synthesizer that is the first product to implement TransModal Synthesis¿ technology. TransModal Synthesis relies on K-Osc¿, an oscillator model capable of smoothly transitioning between various oscillation modes like harmonic, noisy, or chaotic, and Morphilter¿, a filter allowing continuous transitions between modes (low-pass, high-pass, etc.). Coupled with an extremely powerful modulation matrix, UFO's synthesis engine lets you accurately shape your sound and its evolution over time with an unparalleled ease of use, thanks to the innovative user interface.
UFO's key strengths are: Simplicity: UFO is very easy and fast to program. Sound programming mostly comes down to placing dots and drawing arrows on control screens featuring perceptually relevant parameters.
Versatility: UFO's flexible synthesis algorithms are capable of synthesizing a broad range of sounds from scratch, ranging from complex digital textures to organic flavoured sounds.
Expressivity: not only is UFO synthesis engine versatile, but most of the synthesis parameters can be modulated by up to eight modulation sources, all at the same time. This gives UFO an unmatched expressivity, with velocity and aftertouch being able to radically alter the sound, while the modulation wheel can be used to "morph" the sound into a totally different one.
With UFO's groundbreaking user interface concept, building the sound you want from scratch takes no longer than the time you usually spend going through hundreds of presets in search for something close enough to the sound you have in mind.
If you are into sound design and need to program fancy sound textures (or even simple leads), then UFO and its 300+ simultaneous parameter modulations will unleash your creativity while reducing programming time.
Audeon is offering a preview of their innovative software: a Release Candidate of the UFO software (demo version) is already available for download at www.audeon.fr.
The full version of UFO is scheduled for December. It will be priced 199¿ ($229) and will be sold online on Audeon's web site. It will be first available as a VST plugin for PC. A Mac version should follow soon.
