Following the massive success and reception of the unique Abyss spectral synthesizer that represents sounds with colors, Tracktion Corporation has released a major 1.2 update.

To further enrich the sonic potential of Abyss, version 1.2 now incorporates FM capabilities bringing a whole new world of timbres. Simplicity is at the heart of the new FM section, with just three sliders you can set the level and the tonal character of the frequency modulation. And of course, these settings can be modulated to create evolving, expressive sounds as you’d expect from Abyss.

In addition, Abyss 1.2 ships with twice as many presets: a library of more than three hundred free sounds including an artist pack of seventy plus patches from Audilepsy, thirty patches from Databroth and a free expansion pack of eighty plus patches. The added LEVEL slider to the LFO’s allows variation of the modulation depth and the new touch screen ability aids quick navigation helping to maintain that creative flow.

Abyss for Windows and Mac is available at a 30% discount at Tracktion, priced $89 USD until October 13th, 2021. Existing users can upgrade for free.

The synth is also on sale at Plugin Boutique, where you can get up to 30% off on other Tracktion software until October 22nd as well, including Waveform Pro, F.’em, Hyperion, BioTek 2, and more.
