Cherry Audio has announced the release of an innovative polyphonic synthesizer that utilizes diverse waveshaping to bend pure sine waveforms into infinitely variable and complex shapes and sounds.
With 4 sine-wave oscillators, wide-ranging modulation capabilities, and integrated effects, Sines is capable of creating a distinctive array of unique timbres ranging from the sublime to the sizzling.
The state-of-the-art Sines interface provides immediate hands-on access to all sound parameters. It comes alive with illuminated indicators, colour, and mini oscilloscopes, providing instant visual feedback.
The primary sound design controls are grouped horizontally in bands emphasizing its “four of everything” nature: four LFOs, four oscillators, and four envelope generators. At the core of each section are the unique sine-wave oscillator waveshaping controls: feedback, phase, width, shape, wavefold, and drive, along with a sub (octave-down) oscillator and a super (octave-up) oscillator. Phase modulation and ratio dials allow the oscillators to be configured in a modulator/carrier arrangement for four-op DX/FM-style synthesis.
But these dangerous curves are just the beginning. Sines features Cherry Audio’s most extensive multimode filter to date, four LFOs with 14 wave shapes, four envelope generators, an arpeggio, a “best of” selection of Cherry Audio’s finest acclaimed effects, a drift function, and an integrated eight-band graphic EQ. Many controls include an adjacent mod source button, and an outrageously comprehensive four-slot mod matrix provides numerous modulation options for nearly every Sines parameter.
Sines for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU, AAX, and standalone) comes with over 700 presets to get you started.
