Ethereal is a polyphonic synthesizer which uses advanced additive synthesis, powerful envelopes and built in effects to create intricate pads and moving textures.
Three oscillators, using 22 stored waveforms and 6 user-definable ones. The user waveforms are created using additive synthesis with 29 harmonics or from user draw waves. Each oscillators is doubled for added fatness.
Each oscillator can load in samples, these samples can have there own key split and position envelope.
Each oscillator can be frequency modulated, using any of the waves as modulator or the output of any of the oscillators. Osc 2 & 3 can be synced to Osc 1 as well.
Each oscillator’s output is sent to one of two 12/24db low / high / band-pass / band-reject / comb / ring-mod filters. These two filters can be arranged serially or in parallel. Each filter has built in distortion & keyboard tracking.
The oscillators and filters parameters are controllable using 32 stage envelopes, each stage having variable slopes. Each envelope has user-definable loop / release points for complex patterns.
LFO control of the pitch , volume , pan & filter frequency, each LFO has it’s own envelope for amplitude and frequency so for instance you can use LFO’s whose frequency changes over time.
Four built in effects, chorus, reverb, delay and phaser + stereo widen , portamento and keyboard tracking.
