Drum Synthesizer Module with Parametric Equalizer and Compressor/Limiter module.
Clavia now introduces the new 2.0 software upgrade offering many new and exciting building blocks (modules) and an improved handling of the Editor functions.
One highly awaited feature in the 2.0 upgrade is the release of the 16 band Vocoder. After months of research with some famous analog predecessors, the Clavia development team have constructed a Vocoder that sounds and behaves just like the best analog models. The musicality of the outputs in the new Modular Vocoder is unsurpassable. The Modular Vocoder offers a unique feature. The user is now able to re-route bands to their desire.
Another exciting new feature that comes with the 2.0 upgrade is the appearance of a complete drum synthesizer module. The specially designed drum module offers great analog drum sounds. Right from the start the user gets pre programmed templates with typical analog drum sounds with that "right" punchy character. Remember the drum sounds from the Eighties? With the new drum synthesizer it's a breeze to make up that perfect analog drum sound.
Clavia continues to make available filters with that right "in your face" analog behaviour that have been so unique with the Nord products. Now they add, Parametric equalization with gain, bandwidth and center frequency controls. Gain: +-18dB
Extended morph possibilities. 25 parameters can now be assign to the morph module in each individual patch.
More new modules
The 2.0 upgrade also incorporates new tools to built new patches such as Copy/Paste and Undo. Thanks to this new function, the user is able to copy modules in the Patch and save them as Templates for future use.
There have also been advances made with the new download procedure. It's now much easier to load banks of Patches back and forth between the Modular and the PC. The detailed description of all new features in the 2.0 Upgrade, together with bug reports and fixes, will be available at our web site.
