H.G. Fortune has announced The Tiger, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows.
The Tiger Synth is a highly versatile and flexible synthesizer being capable of complex multilayered sounds with some specific extras from the Aux oscillators, as well as groovy rhythmic sounds you would hardly expect from a synth, and, if you want, fairly typical synth sounds (brass, bass, strings PPG, DX, lead etc.).
There are a lot of modulation options, and, even more there is an easy way to integrate ‘hardwired’ controllers like joysticks, touchpads or ribbons via the 4 UCC knobs (User assignable MIDI CC) which can be selected as mod sources too. Alongside with Aftertouch, Velocity and Modwheel you have many options for realtime interaction at performing live.
Two 16 step Rhythmic Pattern Gators (RPG) and a 16 Step Modulator can turn pads into complex rhythmic sounds. While two Aux oscillators can add some additional spacey sounds (a little like with Altair 4), or, can be used as mod source for a wide range of Amplitude Modulation. Even more both usages are mixable.
There is a lot under the hood of The Tiger to enhance Your creativity!
The Tiger Pro is available to purchase for the introductionary price of 25 EUR until March, 6th 2012 (25% off regular price of 39 EUR). A free version with less features is available to download.
