Ok Sugar Bytes guys, you win easy this time. With a press release for a new virtual poly-synth that goes like… “Factory is your safari ticket to the wilderness of sound. Bearded basslines go fishing for diamonds in a lake full of frogs. Crank the crossfader to morph from a tricky beat to some mellow chords. Combine what no one else has combined yet. This is not your usual preset-clicker. Factory is the new poly-synth from Sugar Bytes. The one with the matrix.” I mean, how can we resist?
True, virtual synths lately don’t look as exciting as they did years ago (I think we’re close to saturation), but this looks like a powerful and versatile synth with very inspiring features (like the ability to use audio input as modulator source!) and a great interface.
Here the main features of the instrument:
2×10 Oscillator Engines, plus Sub Osc (with RingMod mode) and Noise (with 5 Colors)
Morph Crossfader allows for morphing of all continuous parameters
“Liquid” Mod Matrix with 8 sources & 10 targets is the centerpiece of sound creation
3x Multi-Effect with drag ‘n’ drop signal flow, incl. newest reverbs (Corpus, Piano, Spring, Shimmer)
4x Sequencers for all kinds of Gates and CV’s, incl. 36 motion curves, uni/bipolar
Arpeggiator, Intonation engine, Scale Quantizer
Over-Featured Envelopes, LFOs and Sample+Hold
Here’s a video of the Oscillator section
And here you can see the Matrix in use
