Best Service has announced the Galaxy X Convolution Synthesizer by Galaxy Instruments.
After three years of development Galaxy Instruments and Best Service proudly present GALAXY “X”, an exciting new virtual instrument with an extraordinary new kind of sound design: Effect Convolution. It all begins with the sources, which are sample sets especially and exclusively recorded and tweaked for use with FX Convolution: for X-KEYS hundreds of tonally playable instruments like piano overtones, a bowed fan, waterphone or mini-celesta, for X-FX thousands of effect sounds such as magic balls, whirling wood or circuit bent noises and for X-LOOPS exceptional loops such as 1-tone-drum, body percussion or rod spring piano.
But this is just food for the beast: the X-Engine.
With the X-Files of the X-Engine, a celeste mutates into a tuning orchestra, a bowed ventilator sinks into the resonances of a piano, a sitar smashes into a clatter of glass, a tonal dance loop arises from a kalimba.
X comes with over 1000 extraordinary ready to play key, FX and loop instruments and an extremely intuitive user interface, enabling you to create trillions of sounds easily.
