FabFilter Twin 2

FabFilter has released Twin 2, a versatile and powerful synthesizer plug-in with the highest possible sound quality and an ultra-flexible modulation system.

More oscillators, ring modulation, a new delay effects section and virtually unlimited modulation possibilities make FabFilter Twin 2 much more powerful. At the same time, the new “what-you-use-is-what-you-see” interface with an intuitive routing display makes it also far easier to use. And with more than 1600 factory presets, you can get started right away.

FabFilter Twin 2 key features

  • Three oscillators with sawtooth, square, triangle, sine, and pink/white noise wave forms, ring modulation, hard sync, pulse width, phase sync, stereo panning and polyphonic portamento.
  • Two independent multimode filters with 11 different filter characteristics.
  • On-board delay effects section with two delay units and two extra multimode filters in the feedback loop.
  • Clean and uncluttered interface that only displays the components that are actually in use.
  • Drag-and-drop modulation system that lets you modulate almost any setting with the following modulation sources:.
  • Up to 4 XY controllers.
  • Up to 6 XLFOs offering everything from classic LFO shapes to 16-step programmable step sequencers, per-step glide with adjustable glide curve, “snap” option that locks steps to musical notes to create arpeggio-like sequences, modulatable phase offset, and much more.
  • Up to 6 envelope generators with graphic controllers and optional side chain input.
  • Up to 4 envelope followers, triggering on side chain input.
  • Up to 10 MIDI sources that let you use any type of MIDI data as a modulation source.

    I must have chosen the right time to buy the FabFilter Combo (with Twin and Timeless)! I did that two months ago (Dec2008). This morning I visited their website and thought I would have to give up some sheets for an upgrade to Twin 2. To my surprise, a few moments ago, I got an e-mail from FabFilter telling me that the upgrade is FREE! Now that’s generosity! :D Thank you, FabFilter.
