HERCs Music Systems releases Abakos PRO
- Triangle Waveform now added to Oscillator section
- A very cool Arpeggiator with plenty of control onboard including Tempo and Division
- Support for TUN (Tuning files) for all you Micro Tonal enthusiasts
- Improved filter with a mean SATURATION button (turn the volume down on this…) for wild self oscillation (which could turn into self mutilation if not carefully handled)
- LP and HP filter types with 12, 24 and 48 db/OCT options
- New Distortion module adds low bit grit to your sounds for extreme sonic mess
- New Rotary effect…LFO–> Pan goodness
- Special config program giving all users access to some of the internal behaviour of Abakos PRO. From here, you can choose your Oversampling rate, global Volume and Polyphony settings
- Brand new and improved Preset system, making choosing presets much more intuitive
- Comes with an instruction manual
Abakos PRO costs AUD $19 (which is about US $15 right now, can’t go wrong really!) and a demo version is available for download (the demo has a 10 minute time out limit).
