Our friends at Puremagnetik have just released a new instrument plugin, Nighthawk – in their words “a synthesizer inspired by film soundtracks such as Tron, Blade Runner and Escape from New York. Nighthawk is capable of generating complex, evolving sounds similar to those of the Yamaha CS-80 and Oberheim Xpander”.
Each Nighthawk voice is fed through a supersaw matrix of 7 oscillators that can be detuned and phase shifted against each other. According to the company, the resulting synthesized sonic wall of lasers can be pulse-width morphed and modulated into fantastic tapestries of dystopian 1980s cinema.
These references got our attention, and here’s a video teaser for Nighthawk:
Pricing Nighthawk is currently offered as part of Puremagnetik’s Spark subscription for $9 per month. After one month it will become back-cataloged for a la carte purchase at $20 USD.
