Humanoid Sound Systems has released version 2.1.1 of Scanned Synth Pro, a virtual synthesizer for Windows and Mac.

Scanned Synth Pro offers you a unique sound with personality and character in spades.

If you don’t want to sound like everybody else then try Scanned Synth Pro – a step beyond the clones.

SSP features a revolutionary Scanned Synthesis engine combining both physical modeling and wavetable synthesis, using a technique developed in the late 1990s by a pioneering team of scientists at Interval Research.

Changes in Scanned Synth Pro v2.1.1

  • Support for 64-bit VST and AU.
  • Included the LimeFlavour One skin.
  • Fixed the issue with serial numbers for users with accented characters in their names under Windows.

Scanned Synth Pro for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $24.99 USD. Existing users can download the update at no charge.

Humanoid Sound has also released two soundsets: Xenogenesis for Scanned Synth Pro, and Anamorphic Cinema for Alchemy by Camel Audio.

Xenogenesis contains 142 sounds for Scanned Synth Pro, created by Bryan Lee, who was on the sound design team for the 2.0 release. The Xenogenesis soundset boosts main two categories of sound to remedy the fact that the factory set is currently woefully deficient in basses and leads – there are over 40 sounds in each of those categories as well as other sounds. Genres targeted: Ambient, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Glitch, Grime, IDM, Industrial and Trip-Hop

Anamorphic Cinema is a unique hybrid of rawness and sophistication, capturing the internal richness and movement of scanned synthesis.

It brings you pads that are rich and analogue in character, or airy and machine-like, plus leads featuring screaming filters, wheezing tubes, struck glass, and bags of retro attitude, and wiry, metallic, filth-laden basses tortured from wire and rust.

Starting life as 121Mb of detailed multi-samples captured from Humanoid Sound Systems’ Scanned Synth Pro, the sounds of Anamorphic Cinema have subsequently been enhanced by Alchemy filters, extensive modulation options, real-time performance controls and extra effects, to produce a library that will work perfectly across a host of genres including electronica and ambient, through to more aggressive styles such as industrial and dubstep.

The Xenogenesis soundset costs $10.99 USD; Anamorphic Cinema is $7.99 USD.
