FXpansion has launched its new Cypher2, an analog modeled synthesizer that has been designed with expression and performance foremost in mind.

The synth builds on the powerhouse capabilities of the original, adding an inspiring array of new features and propelling the synth to the cutting edge of sound design.

Cypher2 is designed for deep sonic exploration and expressive performances. It features a vast range of sound design tools and over 1300 sounds, including 500 MPE-optimised presets. Experience an unparalleled level of expression through analogue-modelled oscillators, waveshaping and thru-zero FM.

Our signature TransMod modulation system, now upgraded for Cypher2, ensures that every session with this premium synthesizer is a sound design adventure.

Cypher2 features

  • Analogue-modelled expressive synth.
  • Diverse library of 1300 expertly crafted presets (800 2D, 500 5D).
  • Optimised for both MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) and traditional MIDI controllers.
  • 3 analogue modelled oscillators, FM and audio-rate modulation.
  • Twin analogue modelled filters with 6 circuit models each.
