Offering both virtual analog synthesis and wavetable synthesis, TerraTec Producer's Komplexer synthesizer is a VST format plug-in for Windows capable of importing sounds from the Waldorf MicroQ.
Featuring classic synth sound powered by three oscillators, two multimode filters, four ADSDSR envelopes and three LFOs, Komplexer provides a range of sound creation possibilities. Courtesy of the application's groundbreaking macro controllers, presets can be modified to suit every taste using just eight parameters, making it easy for newcomers to synthesis to manipulate the sounds. Of course, this VST instrument also affords users unrestricted access to all of the sophisticated synthesis engine's 400 parameters should they want it. Features such as the advanced arpeggiator and LFO 3's synchronizable user-specific waveform serve to create striking soundscapes that adapt automatically to the given song tempo. The integrated vocoder lets conjure compelling vocal effects.
Priced at 199.00 euros (MSRP), TerraTec Producer's Komplexer is slated to hit stores in Q2 2005.
