Krotos has launched its new software synthesizer Concept, a creative instrument that focuses on simplified workflow.

Concept takes a fresh approach to modulation for soft synths, introducing three exciting new modulator sources: XY Capture, Audio Input and Tweak It.

Concept is an intuitive and creative soft-synth, that makes the process of creating your own patches fast and inspiring. Concept’s flexible synth engine will enable you to create everything from traditional synth sounds to more complex evolving textures and custom sound design elements.

A fresh approach to modulation allows any parameter to be mapped to one of four highly editable multi-mode modulators in the centre of Concept’s UI. Choose from a variety of flexible modulation options such as an Envelope/Pitch Follower, an X/Y Capture pad and the unique ‘Tweak It’ customisation system.

Concept features

  • Modulation system with drag-and-drop. Instantly identify your mappings with clear colour coding and animated visual feedback.
  • Tweak It! Concept’s controllable and assignable customization system allows you to create variations of your patch with a single click, with results ranging from musical to complex.
  • X/Y Capture lets you draw your modulation movements within an X/Y field. Capture patterns for any combination of parameters and sync the results to your project’s tempo. Create unique sounds and melodies in an instant.
  • FX Rack with ten high-quality effects, drag-and-drop any parameter into the modulation system. An innovative convolution reverb is included allowing the use of custom impulse responses.
  • Audio Input stimulates new ideas. Perform and modulate with any input or instrument, use elements from your mix to create dynamic rhythmical patches, or use the pitch follower to create exciting interactions with existing melodies.
  • 200+ presets designed by the likes of Mercury award-winning music producer Roni Size (Reprazent, Universal), Richard Devine (Google, Warp Records), Kayla Painter (Brownswood Recordings), Dom Ruckspin (Ninja Tune) and Hieroglyphic Being (Mathematics Records).

Concept is available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats for the intro price of $99 USD / 89 EUR / £76 GBP from Plugin Boutique until February 15th, 2020. The regular price is $129 USD / 119 EUR / £99 GBP.
