Get Inspired With Over 1400 Presets & Incredible Sound Manipulation Tools!

“SynthMaster” comes equipped with an easy to understand yet powerful interface, a massive amount of presets to draw inspiration from and many different synthesis methods including VA, Additive, Wavetable, Phase Modulation, Frequency Modulation, Pulse Width Modulation, Ring Modulation, Amplitude Modulation, Physical Modeling and SFZ Sample Playback synthesis.

SynthMaster Architecture

The architecture in SynthMaster consists of 2 layers followed by 2 global effect send busses. The effect routing is totally flexible. The effects can be inserted by right clicking on the insert and choosing the effect from the dropdown menu. An insert effect can be activated/bypassed by left clicking on it.

Layers

Both layers have an identical look. You can switch between them by clicking on the corresponding tab.

Linking Parameters to MIDI Controllers (MIDI Learn)

In “SynthMaster”, continuous parameters can be assigned to MIDI controllers. This assignment is achieved by the MIDI Learn feature in SynthMaster. Up to 32 assignments can be defined, and they are saved within the preset.

Assigning Modulation Sources for Parameters

In synthesizer terminology, modulation means varying a parameter’s value over time using a modulation source. Modulating parameter values is an essential part of synthesizer sound design.

In “SynthMaster”, there are 2 types of modulation types:

  • + Modulation: In this mode, the modulation amount is between -1 and +1. The center default value indicates zero modulation. The target parameter is calculated as: Target = Target + (Modulation Curve [Source X Via] X Mod Amount)
  • X Modulation: In this mode, the modulation amount is between 0 and 1. The target parameter is calculated as: Target = Target x ((1-Mod Amount)+( Modulation Curve [Source X Via] X Mod Amount))

There are 3 ways to assign a modulation source for a parameter:

  • By right clicking on the parameter and assigning a source from the popup menu
  • By dragging a modulation source and dropping it onto a parameter
  • By assigning sources and targets for a modulation matrix entry

Browsing Presets

“SynthMaster” comes with a comprehensive preset library, with more than 1400 presets to start with.

The presets can be filtered by:

  • Instrument Type
  • Attributes
  • Music Style
  • Preset Author
  • Bank Name

For instance, if you want to see all Mono Bass Factory presets for Electro music style created by Aiyn Zahev, click on Bass, Mono, Electro, Aiyn Zahev and then Factory Presets.

A Sound that’s Uniquely Yours – Voices, Oscillators & Filters!

“SynthMaster” comes equipped with a whole bunch of ways to manipulate your sound… down to the finest detail. In fact it is such a powerful synth that it’s capabilities are far too many to list here! Here is just a taste of what to expect:

Voice Parameters

  • Polyphony Mode – Three voicing configurations are available, selected from the Mode menu at the top of the interface: Poly, Mono & Legato.
  • Glide – In “Mono” and “Legato” modes, the Glide knob (at the right hand side of the Keyboard panel) determines the time it takes to slide from one note’s pitch to the next.
  • Glide Type – The two Glide Types available here; “N”ormal and “S”lide, affect the way overlapping and consecutive notes are handled.

Oscillators

Oscillators are the sound generators in a synthesizer. Each layer in SynthMaster has 2 oscillators. There are 5 types of oscillators in SynthMaster:

  • Basic – synthesize or play the following types of waveforms/samples: Sine, Square, Triangle, Sawtooth, Pulse, Noise, Any single cycle waveform, WAV/AIFF samples defined in SFZ files.
  • Additive – 8 basic oscillators running together. Each basic oscillator has its own: Volume, Pan, Detune / Tone / Phase, Waveform type, Algorithm, Frequency.
  • Vector – Vector oscillator is a subset of Additive oscillator. There are 4 basic oscillators running together.
  • Wavetable – similar to basic oscillator, except that the waveform can be scanned (interpolated) in between 16 different waveforms shapes.
  • Audio Input – used to pass the incoming audio input of SynthMaster through its oscillators/filters/effects/etc.

Importing Single Cycle Waveforms

“SynthMaster” supports importing your own single cycle waveforms into its engine. You can even import multiple single cycles taken at different root keys.

Filters

Filters in synthesizers are used to boost/cut certain frequency ranges based in their types. Each layer in SynthMaster has 2 filters with 6 different algorithm categories:

  • Digital – The following digital filter types are available in SynthMaster: Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass, Bandstop, LowShelve, HighShelve, Peaking, Multimode.
  • Virtual Analog – modeled after the famous ladder filter. It has continuously variable Slope, unlike the digital filters with fixed slope (This is a feature unique to SynthMaster).
  • Ladder – similar to VAnalog filter, is modeled after the famous ladder filter, but is a zero delay feedback filter.
  • Diode Ladder – modeled after a well-known analog filter circuit found in synths such as the TB303.
  • State Variable Filter (SVF) – modeled after analog state variable filters found in synths like the SEM.
  • Bite Filter – modeled after the analog 12 db/Oct lowpass & 6dB/oct highpass filters found in the famous MS20 synth.

Bring Your Sounds To Life With Modulation, Arpeggiation & FX!

As you would expect, “SynthMaster” provides plenty of ways to add interesting space and movement to your music.

Modulation Sources

Each layer in “SynthMaster” has the following voice modulation sources, which are available separately for each voice (as opposed to global modulation sources such as MIDI CC, synth LFOs, etc):

  • 4 ADSR envelopes
  • 2 Multistage envelopes (up to 16 points)
  • 2 2D envelopes (up to 16 points)
  • 2 Voice LFOs
  • 4 Keyscalers
  • MIDI Velocity
  • Unison Index
  • Bipolar/Unipolar Random
  • Alternating

Arpeggiator/Sequencer

“SynthMaster” features a very powerful Arpeggiator/Sequencer with up to 32 steps. Each step has its own Velocity, Length, Slide, Hold and Delta (Arpeggiate mode only) settings, and Note number(s) (Sequence mode only).

Using the Arpeggiator/Sequencer, you can create rhythmic arpeggios and polyphonic sequences. The Arpeggiator receives MIDI input and sends MIDI output.

The Arpeggiator/sequencer has the following modes:

  • Classic Modes – Up,  Down, UpDown, DownUp, UpDown2, DownUp2, As Played, Chord
  • Sequence
  • Drum Kit

Layer Effects Section

“SynthMaster” comes with a comprehensive selection of effects that can be applied to any layer:

  • 6 Band EQ
  • Distortion – a 2 Band EQ followed by a distortion stage followed by a 2 Band EQ.
  • LoFi – The LoFi effect is used to apply bit reduction and sample rate reduction (through sample and hold)
  • Phaser – The Phaser effect is 4-8-12-16 stage analog modelled phaser
  • Chorus – used to add time varying delays to its stereo inputs
  • Tremolo – used to modulate the amplitude of its stereo inputs
  • Ensemble – up to 8 voices running in parallel at different delay modulations
  • Delay – used to add EQed and/or distorted delay to its stereo inputs
  • Reverb – SynthMaster features a powerful Reverb effect, used to simulate rooms/spaces
  • Compressor – used for dynamic gain reduction
  • Vocoder – The vocoder in SynthMaster consists of 16 analysis and 16 synthesis filters (1 LP + 14 BP + HP)
