Sugar Bytes is one of those companies that never fails to lift our spirit. Their new Aparillo is an advanced 16-voice FM synthesizer, tailored for majestic sonic motions. A clever arrangement of synthesis, wave shaping, filtering, FX and modulation unfolds into a serious sound design tool for epic sonic creation. Make sure to check out the Orbiter, a mass-controller for immediate, instant blockbuster sounding themes.
We’re already putting it through its paces (expect a review soon), in the meantime watch the trailer here:
FM Synthesizer with 16 Voices
Formant Shifting, Wave Folding & Shifting
Multi-Mode Filter with Spacializer
2 interdependent LFOs with S+H and Gravitation
Orbiter for one-touch Sound Morphing
500 handpicked Presets
Wide Modulation Options from 10 sources
Two FM Operators give birth to waveforms so complex it’s like they have a life of their own.
Different FM Complexity/ and Ratio Modes, Waveshaping, Folding, Formant Shifting, Complex LFOs and the Orbiter deliver sonic spectacles that are sure to blow you out of your seat.
The Scale editor creates unbelievable unison spreads with the deepest of harmonic structures, stacking up to a 16 voice orchestra from another planet.
Total control for an almost unlimited range of sounds.
The Orbiter pulls strings throughout the engine putting all the power at your fingertips, with an XY pad to control a massive, record-ready engine.
By mouse animation or position per note (128 different sound sounds from your keyboard!), you will discover exquisite sounds and create unbelievable sonic motions.
The effect section is a sound source in its own right. The Spacializer, a delay-based pitch resonator, can generate an additional synth layer per wave-guide synthesis.
Besides the typical specialties like Comb and Vowel, the Multi-Mode filter dishes up the super-evil Dirt HP/BP/LPs, that bubble over with spectral grit.
The Poly-Autopan, synced Delay, and our best Reverb yet, will add space and air to your precious audio produce.
The sole focus of the modulation lies on the diversity of the 16 independent synth voices. As freely definable layers of sound, they will unfold a vast sonic biotope.
The Envelopes show off user definable slopes, looping modes, and polyphonic parameter modulation. The dual Complex LFO brings along some specialties like FM, Gravitation, Oneshot, S+H/Quantize, and the beautifully chaotic Collision Mode.
The ARP is interwoven with the engine to pick, pluck and extract rhythmic and melodic structures.
