Progress Audio reduces price of Soup
Progress Audio has announced it has reduced the price of Soup, an additive synthesizer with morphing, resynthesis, and great ease of use.
If you’re interested in some additive synth, throwing-lots-of-sounds-in-a-bowl-and-morphing-the m kind of fun, then you’ll be pleased to know that the Soup additive synth can now be had for a $40 / 28Eur / £25. That’s a saving of around 45% of the original price.
- Load up as many sounds as you like, then morph between them in real-time and with complete freedom.
- Control morphs manually using the mouse in real-time, or automatically by drawing envelopes for X and Y movement.
- Powerful editing features give you access to each of Soup’s 64 partials. Design how amplitude, detune and pan for each partial changes over time using the graphical editor.
- Resynthesis to allow you to import new sounds from standard WAV files.
- The unique Elements Editor makes additive synthesis accessible. Create and edit sounds by adjusting 5 elements of the sound (Overall tone, change in tone over time, pan, detuning of harmonics, and envelope).
- Unison mode for instant fat, analog-type sounds.
- Built-in effects section featuring reverb, delay, distortion, chorus, resonant filter, formant filer, modulation matrix, 2 LFO’s and assignable envelope.
- Can respond realistically to note pitch and velocity for expressive, natural sounds.
- Comes with 300 high quality presets featuring sounds from ToTc Productions and Daniel Maurer.
- Includes a full manual in PDF format.
Soup is available as a VST instrument for Windows PC.
