Sonivox has released its latest synthesizer Stratum, a virtual instrument that offers a rock-solid layering of a classic Supersaw synthesizer and a 4 operator FM synthesizer.

Put on your shades and get on board the time machine, as Stratum will take you down the wormhole straight into the 1980s futuristic soundscapes. By combining the fat, wide supersaw oscillators with the classic, rich sounding FM engine, we have brought synth technology of different eras together to give you THE SOUND of future-past.

Stratum will provide you with all you need to create tracks in a variety of retro-inspired genres, be it synthwave, retrowave, outrun, cinematic electronica, 8-bit chiptunes, you name it. These timbres are gaining popularity fast and, if you want to keep up with the wave, check out Stratum. The instrument will also prove of great use in techno, trance, lo-fi hip-hop and EDM, bringing a blast from the past to spice up your tracks.

Stratum features

  • Supersaw FM Synthesizer with Noise and Sub Oscillators.
  • Individual arpeggiators for the Supersaw and FM synths.
  • Dynamic Filters including Low-Pass Filters with Resonance, Vocal Formant and Tube Distortion.
  • Unique XY Effects pad for additional bit crushing, dirty phasing, wah-wah and non-linear delay effects.
  • Simple but powerful Modulation Matrix featuring 4 LFOs and an 8-step sequencer.
