So a couple more things from the features list catches my eye. From the Ashun web page.
Oscillators 1 & 2 are routed into our MUTATORS. The Mutators allow you to modulate, bend and sculpt the sound in new (and old) ways.
Each MUTANT allows you to choose from the following processes:
- FM-Linear - for making classic FM sounds. Choose multiple FM sources, including external inputs.
- Wavestack™ - creates 5 copies of the incoming sound and allows you to set a detune amount.
- Hard Sync - This gives you those classic hard sync sounds. Try hard syncing a morphing wavetable for some fun.
- Pulse Width - This will pulse width modulate ANY input sound.
- PW - Squeeze - This is a different form of pulse width mod that creates a smoother sound.
- PW-ASM - this mode divides the incoming wave into 8 slices and allows you to set how much pulse width mod will happen in each section.
- Harmonic Sweep - this will sweep the harmonics of the incoming sound.
The Mutant’s can also generate its own waveforms in both FM and Sync modes so that you do not have use another oscillator…Of course the routing is flexible so you can choose the other oscillators as mod sources if you like.
The modulation capabilities on the Hydrasynth are endless.
With 32 user definable modulation routings, you will have plenty of ways to use the 29 modulation sources and 155 modulation destinations.
Almost everything in the synth engine can be a modulation destination including the effects and arpeggiator.
The Modulation matrix points themselves can also become modulation destinations.
Modulation sources & destinations include the CV Mod In & Out jacks as well as MIDI CC’s
So there’s really a rich possibility of oscillator options here.
And the modulation matrix sounds like it could rival the Matrixbrutes. You can modulate the modulation matrix itself! Whoa – What does that do?
