The heart of Haunted Spaces is the Cube control – a 4-point vector controller that allows you to create complex movements between 4 different waveforms of your choosing. The cube can be fully animated and the movements tempo-synced to your DAW. Each of the 4 waveforms can have independent filter, envelope, pitch and LFO settings.
