Vibrant, Raw & Spectacular – Your Own Unique Sound With Minimal Effort!

Inspiration and creativity from the first launch!

Finding the perfect sound for any genre couldn’t be easier thanks to Factory’s innovative and clearly structured preset browser.

Sound designers who worked this beast for painful weeks: SolidTrax, Ryn Manning, Monolog, SiriusMo, Kabuki, SoundBits, Don Garbutt, Plaeground, Tom Cosm, Mikael Adle (Leap Into The Void) and the team at Sugar Bytes.

Factory works flawlessly as a plugin for all common DAW hosts or as a stand-alone application on Mac and Windows PCs.

Feed your samples to the oscillators!

Factory’s sound generation is driven by 2 Oscillators that feature 10 Synthesis Models each, 1 Sub-Oscillator, and a Noise Oscillator.

The 2 oscillators are the tonal ore and each of their 10 different modes is an instrument in its own right.

Besides non-aliasing VA-Sync and Fractal Oscillators, Sugar Bytes actually tackled wavetable, waveguide and FM. They also lifted Cyclop’s complex Transformer tool and made it polyphonic!

After selecting an oscillator model, dial in the sound further using the different set of sound shaping controls available for each model as well as the Tuning and Pitch Track functions.

Tweak Your Sound Endlessly – Filters, Drive & The Modulation Matrix!

Filter Section

Factory’s Filter section offers an excellent sounding multimode filter that features eleven sound-shaping options.

The different filter types are LP 2 Pole, LP 4 Pole, LP 8 Pole, LP / HP, Midboost, Bandreject, Bandpass, Highpass, Peak EQ, Comb, and Vowel.

Drive Section

The Drive section provides three types of distortion effects. Choose between Tube, Diode, and Sine in conjunction with the different filter types and their settings to generate subtle or very intense and dynamic sounds.

Tailor the sound character further using the Filter Smooth and Expensive Drive controls to reach a desired sound.

The Modulation Matrix – The “Switchboard of Sound”…

The Mod Matrix is Factory’s standout feature and is where the magic happens.

It is a flexible polyphonic patching system that is capable of routing up to eight modulation sources at a time to a maximum of ten target destinations.

Each of the eight modulation sources has a drop-down menu to choose between 18 different sources while each of the ten targets have 34 destinations to select from the menu.

And then there’s the random button, an optical feast, blurring your vision for a moment or two.

The twerk section with its shenanigans. Get things done with 36 modulation targets. A must have these days!

Sequencers, Arpeggiators & Modulators… Oh My!

The Modulators Tab

This is where Factory sounds are brought to life. This section provides two identical ADSR envelopes, two identical LFO’s, and a Sample and Hold module.

This section also provides three envelope functions:

  • The Loop function – this is used to generate complex periodic modulation shapes. Velocity sets the maximum envelope level that will be determined by velocity.
  • Trigger Source – this is a fun function that gives you the ability to select a trigger source such as a MIDI note-on command, sequencer steps, arpeggiator steps, or LFO to produce rhythmic modulation.
  • Two identical LFO’s – these provide periodic modulation.

In addition, all five envelope parameters mentioned can be modulated by the Mod Matrix.

Sample+Hold: 36 Curves with Multi Trigger.

This module is an advanced function that generates complex modulation wave-shapes with trigger sources to create some impressive rhythmical effects.

This section features 19 Trigger Signals and 24 Sample Sources that can be controlled further with the Threshold, Quantizer, and Lag parameters.

Sequencer Tab

Factory also features a step sequencer that displays 4 tracks of up to 16 steps each. Draw pitch values directly into the track window or select one of the 36 different curves to build complex or interesting sequences.

The sequencer can also be used to control up to 35 sound parameters via the Mod Matrix or used to trigger the Envelopes, LFO’s, Sample and Hold, and Arpeggiator steps.

Articulation Tab

This section features an arpeggiator, a Pitch Factory section with several global functions to control pitch, glide, and unison.

It also has an Intonation section that provides envelopes used to create subtle inaccuracies that emulate the authentic tone of acoustic instruments and vintage synthesizers, as well as produce pitch-changes similar to a sitar or slide guitar.

Add That Final Touch – Effects & Realtime Controllers!

Put the final treatment on your sounds with Factory’s built-in effect section that features three identical effect slots connected in series each sporting a selection of 13 sound sweetening options.

Select between Groove Delay, Pitch Delay, Reverse Delay, Corpus, Pianoverb, Shimmer, Spring Reverb, Whiteverb, Equalizer, Stereo Filter, Dynamic Filter, Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Shatter, Lofizer, and Compmax.

You can also swap the order of effects and modulate most of the parameters using the Mod Matrix to create more unique sounds. Imagine delay patterns controlled by the sequencer or a filter effect controlled by keyboard pressure.

In addition to the keyboard, Factory also sports a Pitch Bender, a Modwheel to add some major expression to your sounds, and a Morph fader to perform complex timbre changes with a single fader movement.

Tip: The Morph fader can be assigned to a MIDI controller for some fun morphing action. Check out some cool morphing possibilities in the video to the right!
