KORG Modwave Native v1.1.0 Windows
Korg 已经将其强大的 modwave 硬件波表合成器变成了适用于 macOS 和 Windows 原生 VST/AU/AAX 插件。
Korg modwave native 是 modwave 硬件合成器的插件版本。它包含与硬件相同的丰富功能。一个双层的灵感源于 DW-8000 的波表引擎，带采样内容，各种滤波器，高质量的效果器，以及一个丰富的调制引擎支持 1000 个可能的目标。
亮点之一是可以在引擎内加载你自己的波表和采样。你可以使用 WaveEdit 软件或流行的 Serum 插件中的自定义波表。通过这种方式，你可以大规模地扩展声谱，并赋予 modwave 自己个性。
毫无疑问，你可以用大量的滤波器模型和高质量的效果来操纵声音。在 wavestate 和 opsix 中，它们已经完全有说服力了。
modwave 的另一个功能亮点是它复杂的调制引擎，而且规模并不小。它提供了不同的包络和 LFO，支持 1000 多个可能的目标，给你提供了无限的声音设计可能性。最重要的是，你还可以用 modwave 合成器所独有的内置 KAOSS 物理引擎来设置声音的运动。
Synthesis powerhouse with distinctive wavetable timbres, Kaoss Physics, and Motion Sequencing 2.0. Now available as a plug-in for Mac and Windows. In 1985, Korg’s DW-8000 combined digital wavetables with rich analog filters to give users sounds which were impossible to create with analog oscillators. It’s still a cult favorite today.
What’s a wavetable?
Wavetables are sets of single-cycle digital waveforms, arranged in a specific order. The wavetable’s “position” determines which waveform is played. Moving the position with an envelope, LFO, or other modulation source creates subtle or dramatic changes in timbre. Some wavetable systems switch abruptly from one waveform to another; others crossfade smoothly between them. The modwave can do either one.
Use over 30 Modifiers to alter the character of any wavetable at load time. For instance, isolate the odd or even harmonics, add weight through anti-aliased quantization or saturation, or revisit the gritty character of old-school wavetable synths with the Vintage 8 & 12 options.
The 13 Morph Types let you stretch, squeeze, reflect, and otherwise alter the wavetables in real-time, changing their timbre and—when modulated—creating additional motion in the sound. Sync creates classic swept-sync timbres, using only a single oscillator. Three special Morph Types—FM, AM, and Ring Mod—modulate Osc 2 with Osc 1, and the last two even apply to samples.
Using the unique A/B mode, oscillators can blend any two wavetables with phase-synchronous precision—different from simply layering voices—opening up a dimension of intermediate waveforms. Add body to otherwise “thin” waveforms, for instance, or a touch of sizzle to a mellow timbre. Even fade between two different “modifier” versions of the same wavetable. A/B Blend can be modulated in real-time, of course.
Gigabytes of samples
Wavetables also sound great when layered with samples, and the modwave oscillators handle that with aplomb, using KORG’s proprietary anti-aliasing sample playback technology. Totaling in the gigabytes, the modwave’s sample library includes new material from KORG, Airwave, and Francis Preve, plus a bank from Plugin Guru and a selection from the Kronos and Krome libraries.
User Sample Banks let you add more Multisamples to the system. You can create your own Banks, or use Banks from third party sound developers. modwave native can load many User Sample Banks simultaneously. This is one area in which software has the edge, due to the large amount of storage and RAM available on your computer: the hardware modwave can load only one User Sample Bank at a time.
