xoxos releases Horizon
xoxos has released Horizon, a virtual instrument plug-in for Windows PC.
Horizon combines lush stereo unison voicing with a phrase sequencer that stays in key when the sequence is transposed.
This simple format makes Horizon ideal for lead sounds in dance and other styles. The oscillators are also suitable for producing panoramic pads, before any stereo effects are applied to the signal.
- 2 x 32 voice oscillators with five stereo algorithms.
- 10 oscillator waveforms including 4 modulating contours (sine, saw, ramp, peak, triangle, square, curve, pulse-saw, sine-saw, res).
- noise oscillator.
- per voice prefilter distortion with 6 modes.
- 2 stereo 6 pole filters run in serial or parallel.
- 3 tempo syncable LFOs (sine, triangle, ramp, saw, square, dip, hump, 4 curve modes, step rnd, smooth rnd).
- 3 envelopes.
- 9 modular destinations.
- 8 step phrase sequencer which transposes to user input scale.
Horizon is available for purchase for $25 USD. A demo version (limited to two voice polyphony) is available for download here.
