Artistry Audio Announces Scorpio, A Next-Level Motion Synth
Scorpio, by Artistry Audio, is a next-level modern motion synth ready to push the boundaries of your music and inspire you in ways you have never imagined. Whether you want to keep things simple with the hundreds of presets or dive deep beneath the surface to sculpt something that’s all your own, this instrument is packed with high-definition sounds that are sure to inspire your creativity.
Here’s Scorpio in action:
Built with Kontakt, Scorpio loads up as one monolith instrument with a fully tagged onboard browser for its presets, effects and source sounds. It’s simple to choose from the master preset tags and then quickly navigate to the type of sound that’s perfect for your project. It’s never been easier to create your own bespoke instruments and save them for one-click recall as you can name, tag and save your creations with just a couple of clicks.
Despite the simple concept of this dual-layer instrument, Scorpio features a web of complex systems behind the hood, all working together to provide the most ground-breaking pulse modulations and complex transformations that you’ve ever heard.
The Main page is where it all begins, with access to the creative XY macro controller, smoothly modulating the sound with a kaleidoscope of effects that you can record and playback on demand.
If you prefer to dig deeper, Scorpio allows you to manipulate multiple layers of parameters, from tempo-synced sample looping to granular playback, with ease. This section also houses a huge collection of hot-swappable effects, in addition to a powerful LFO/step animation matrix. Link almost any playback
or FX parameter to this programmable sequencer to quickly create lush soundscapes of complex rhythmic motion.
As if this wasn’t enough, we also researched and implemented a new type of arpeggio engine for Scorpio. This section of the library is perfect for taking one of the dozens of deep bases, screaming synths or short plucks, and pushing them to the next level.
Each arp lane can be set independently between 1 and 16 steps, so that interweaving motifs and polyrhythms can be played with ease. Employ per-step triggering for controlled playback, or turn on randomization and retriggering so that you’ll never hear the same sequence twice.
With dynamic playback that locks to tempo and a wide variety of scale types and preset banks, the intelligent engine can quickly create arpeggio sequences and breathe new life into your productions.
Roll the Dice
Our newly developed engine encourages you to randomize any level of the instrument, from master sound sources right down to macro FX. Just choose from the multiple randomization filters and click the dice to transform the playback in big (or small) ways – it’s up to you. Our intelligent randomization features ensure that your results are musical and genuinely useful, without wasting precious time.
