A BOC Inspired Metamorphosis Machine for Kontakt!

With “Headphase V2” Audio Reward have drawn inspiration heavily from the “Boards of Canada” palette, hence the name. Every included sound has been specifically made for “Headphase” and each one can be controlled in many ways and blended to create sonically deep and lush textures.

On the surface you can start loading presets and playing “Headphase” instantly and you can get creative by turning a few controls to see what they do… but Headphase goes much deeper than this.

It uses a new concept ‘Audio Design Partials’ to give you access to various parameters while just moving one of 4 knobs. These will open up a world of new sounds.

Move a ‘Partial’ knob and listen as the sound morphs and changes in various unexpected ways.

Audio Reward wanted to make an instrument that could be used for rapid inspiration and for generating unique sounds very quickly and have delivered on that promise!

1323 Inspiring Snapshots & Innovative Controls!

“Headphase v2” comes with a massive selection of snapshots (presets) to get you started, however this is just the beginning of your sound shaping journey.

AUDIO DESIGN PARTIALS

“Headphase V2” uses a new and innovative approach to sound design called Audio Design Partials, or ‘Partials’ for short.

“Headphase” uses an extensive and comprehensive set of audio design controls to offer you an enormous range of sound possibilities, for each voice these include:

  • Filters – three different types
  • LFO’s –  to manage the filter frequency
  • Vibrato
  • Tremelo
  • 4 Send Effects –  and send amounts (using 5 different effect options)
  • 4 Insert Effects –  using 20 different effect options
  • 80 Different Voices –  that can have volume, pan and tuning set independently.

Clearly this is a lot of control, and can be used to generate a really wide range of new and unique sounds, but the management of these can be just as comprehensive and complex.

Headphase removes this complexity by using Partials.

Partials make it quick and easy to alter several core characteristics of the sound at the same time thus helping you to ‘explore’ sound and effortlessly find new combinations of settings. Audio Reward have given you all the control you need to allocate a number of different controls to each partial.

Within the interface the Shape, Sculpt, Shift and Smooth Dials have degrees of randomness to them. It is quite a different way of thinking when adjusting these parameters.

The Finishing Touch – Bring Your Sound To Life!

“Headphase V2” provides you with some great tools to let you customise and add movement and randomisation to your sounds, including the following:

  • Dual Gates –  Each voice has its own gate.
  • Gate syncopation – Adds in an envelope as part of each step so even if you set all the gate step values to the same you will still hear each gate step individually.
  • Voice routing – Each voice now has its own routing – which means its own Send Levels and its own FX generated by the smooth partials.
  • Mod Wheel positioning – Move the mod wheel and you will begin to influence where in the wav file Headphase is sampling from.

DRIFT CONTROL

The Drift control emulates the tuning inconsistencies/niceties of old(er) hardware instruments.

Drift will slowly move the tuning of each of the instrument voices over time – the further you turn the dial the more “out of tune” the instrument will drift.

Once Drift has reached a target tuning it will identify a new tuning and slowly move to that – so it never stays static for long.

GATE SEQUENCER

Also included in the instrument is a Gate Effect so that you can give different sounds a rhythmic pulsing element. If you find a nice pad sound, try adding a Gate with a rhythmic timing and see how much further this takes the patch!

  • You can sub-divide your sequences into 1/8, 1/16, 1/32 and triplets of the same.
  • Subtly modulate over time or to create choppy sequences and tempo-synced rhythms.
  • The Gate Sequencer also has the ability to load and save presets directly from disk.

What People Think About 64% off “Headphase V2” by Audio Reward

  • "Overall this is a great software synth instrument that emulates the classic sounds used in Boards of Canada’s repertoire. The Pads and leads have these lush sounds to them. The effects are great for extra embellishments to add to your nostalgic music compositions [and] the Drift Control is amazing at emulating the tuning inaccuracies of old vintage synth gear."
