sonicLAB has announced the release of Cosmosƒ Saturn6 and Saturn6S, an update to the dynamic stochastic synthesizer instruments for Windows and Mac.
Cosmosƒ Saturn6 introduces “the Object”, full MIDI controller assignment capacity, and envelopes without any attack part.
Sound is a perceptual phenomena in a continuous process of change. The Object serves to compose all the systemic parameter changes along with by recording the continuous gestures applied on every Cosmosƒ parameter.
The Object has 2150 tracks to capture and record and carry on for the perfect user interaction on every Cosmosƒ event and its parameter space. This gives a great detail of human intervening on a stochastic sound generator to drive between fully deterministic and fully stochastic boundaries.
And yet the Object has a pretty simple user interface.
Each Object sequence can be saved and loaded to different presets, its speed can be changed on the fly and quantization can be applied at various resolutions to break the continuous gestures.
You can morph continuously between two Object Sequences applied on the current Cosmosƒ state.
The Object also includes full control on the ambisonic 3D sound distribution engine of Cosmosƒ Saturn6s, as the spatial distribution is part of the timbral definition.
The Object as well offers great potential use for live performers as this is not an audio looping engine but a full parameter level composition and overlayering of the tracks being recorded.
Cosmosƒ Saturn6S (with true ambisonic surround and OSC support) is available for 169 EUR, while Saturn6 is 139 EUR. The bundle price of Cosmosƒ Saturn6S and Cosmosƒ FX5.1 is 199 EUR for a limited time.
Cosmosƒ Saturn6 and 6S (VST/AU/Standalone) is a free upgrade for Saturn5.1 users.
