Klevgrand has announced the release of a groundbreaking new synthesizer. The Tomofon virtual instrument uses a new innovative ”Audio Model” format with a unique capability to process very large volumes of waves, extracted from real audio.

Generated sounds are seamlessly morphed between different layers and sections of a massive amount of real audio waves, providing an instantly playable synthesizer that can sound both organic, and like something out of this world. The possibilities of changing the character of the sounds are vast and multi-layered, allowing you to add a new extra dimension to your music production.

“As far as we know, this approach to processing very large volumes of sound waves extracted from real audio has never been done before. It results in a completely new and expressive instrument.” – Tobias Engström, CEO & Cofounder.

The synth comes with an Audio Model Starter Pack with instruments & voices and over 180 presets to get you started, and you can import your own audio to shape your own unique soundscapes.
