The Drumaxx percussion modelling instrument gives you total control over 16 physically modelled drum pads that can be routed to independent outputs for external effects processing.

 

More than just drum samples.

Great, but why should you care when the internet is awash with drum samples?

In two words, expressive control.

Once a drum sound is recorded, the performance and modulation options are limited to filtering, volume, or similar 1-dimensional effects.

When a single drum sample is triggered in a roll, you get the familiar ‘machine-gun’ effect and it just sounds mechanical. Multi-sampled, multi-layered drums can overcome this limitation but need multi-megabyte or even Gigabyte! drum libraries. Even then, you are still limited to the sounds originally recorded.

 

Modelling algorithms for better sounds

Drumaxx is not based on samples or even commonly used ‘synthesis’

techniques, where oscillators are mixed and the result is always ‘electronic’.
Drumaxx uses modelling algorithms to create bass drums, hi-hats, snares, realistic and electronic sounds too. But what about the traditional ‘Achilles’ heel’ of synthesis, cymbals? Drumaxx creates cymbals and metallic percussion also.

Good physics stuff included

At the core of Drumaxx is a model where the vibrating membrane is represented as a mesh of interconnected points. Each point is given physical properties including mass, inertia, stiffness, damping, and all that good physics stuff. For the musician, this means
Drumaxx gives you control over multiple parameters such as material, thickness, tension and shape. More importantly, the parameters can be modulated in real-time as a function of velocity or external controls. The drum body is also under user control too, including body material, size, vibration damping, and shape. All this gives you multi-dimensional performance options, a Matrix of variables providing nearly infinite possibilities.

Key features:

 

16 Physically modelled drum pads
Multi-output for individual effects processing on each pad
Huge range of modelling possibilities covering sounds from cymbals to kettle-drums
Velocity modulation matrix for detailed expressiveness

Ever wanted to synthesize a sound but found it was impossible?
With Morphine, no sound is too painful to recreate.

Morphine is indeed a powerful pain killer!

 

A Small Revolution

Morphine is a powerful Additive Synthesizer with a logical, flexible architecture that allows you to create any sound. You can do this directly by adjusting harmonics manually or by taking any input sample and resynthesizing it into one of 4 independent voices.

Additive Synthesis has been considered one of the most desirable ways to emulate real instruments or to create new sounds. However, Additive Synthesis has proved both technically and conceptually difficult to implement, requiring expensive computational algorithms and hardware.

 

Morphine changes everything!

Morphine introduces a minor revolution to the world of Additive Synthesis.With low CPU usage algorithms that retain a warm sound without sacrificing articulation accuracy, and a flexible architecture,  Morphine moves instantly to the top of its class.

Inside Morphine

So what makes Morphine a revolution? We’ll tell you.

Morphine’s 128 harmonic oscillator engine is fully optimized for producing a high quality, warm sound, with ground shaking bass and crystal clear high frequencies.
Based on complex, full 32 bit mathematics, with no internal sampling to avoid interpolation noises so Morphine retains that ‘analog’ quality.

The oscillators are also optimized for fast amplitude and frequency modulation response for accurate tone reproduction.
The oscillator engine is not only thing that makes Morphine sound so great. With an infinite number of harmonic snapshots ‘per-spectrum’, and the ability to map a unique spectra for each note, you can generate a realistic and balanced sound over the entire keyboard range.

Additionally, the four generator sourcescan be morphed via the in-built mix/morph envelope or from an external MIDI controller. Combined with the four independent multipoint modulation envelopes, assignable to many internal parameters, you can achieve any sound, just like you imagined it.

As an ‘Easter-egg’ for the sound designers among you, Morphine provides unison and comb/pulse width filter modulation of the harmonics directly, adding even more motion to the sound.

System requirements

PC:
Windows 7, Vista, XP (SP2) – (32 & 64 Bit)
2Ghz AMD or Intel Pentium 3 compatible CPU with full SSE1 support
512Mb RAM.
100Mb free disc space.
DirectSound or ASIO compatible soundcard.
Mac:
OSX v10.4 (Universal Binary)
G4 1.5 GHz or Intel Core Duo family.
512Mb RAM.
100Mb free disc space.
CoreAudio drivers.

Resynthesis

Be inspired. Resynthesis allows you to capture a complete spectrum from any audio sample, for accurate emulation of real instruments, or as a starting point for something completely new, using the in-built editing tools. Unlike the resynthesis of other additive synthesizers, Morphine provides total control so the resynthesized sounds are as close to the original sample as possible.

Sonic Flavor

You’re a talented musician, full of great ideas, but you’re still skeptical, right? So, what sounds can Morphine really make? Anything!

Complex evolving pads, deep basses, acoustic instruments, synthetic leads and keyboards are all possible using the advanced resynthesis features and intuitive interface.
However, musical creativity doesn’t guarantee you care about making your own sounds from scratch. Good news here too, Morphine ships with 290 high-quality presets covering a vast range of music styles. But, you don’t have to take our word for it, download the demo and let your own ears be the judge.

Standalone

Next to the VSTi & AudioUnits version we have developed a bi-platform minihost that allows you to enjoy Morphine without using a sequencer or host. You can just start it as a standalone application and play it with your midi or PC keyboard.

Key features:

High quality sound engine optimized for low CPU usage and fast amplitude and frequency modulation response.
4 independent “Generators” per voice
Keyboard layering with 128 unique Keyboard Zones.
Unlimited number of harmonic “snapshots” (breakpoints) per spectrum.
Amplitude, Detune, Panning control for all harmonics.
Filtering and Velocity response for each Generator source.
Highly CPU optimized, accurate Resynthesis allowing emulation of audio samples with high precision.
Manual override options for the resynthesis process to achieve most accurate emulations.
Ability to import waveshapes from audio file.
Variable-time control for spectra, mix/morph envelopes (can also be linked to key number, velocity or any other controller).
4 PWM Filters (spectral emulation of comb filtering, unison or pulse-width)
Additional generator that allows any Noise Sample audio file to be mixed with the synthesized sound, complete with filtering.
Morphing path, morphs harmonics in real-time, controlled internally or from external modulation source/s.
Morphing Square, mixes the 4 Generator sources with a single convenient interface.
4 multipoint (EG) envelopes can be routed to many internal Morphine controls
1 to 32 note polyphony, user selectable.
ADSR master envelope
Velocity response is adjustable.
Up to 5 built-in simultaneous effects: Chorus, Delay, Reverb, Equalizer, Distortion.
Attractive, user friendly interface, developed through 1000’s of man-hours testing and development.

Sawer is a vintage modelling synthesizer, that cuts through the mix to deliver precisely articulated and punchy sounds.

Meticulous designed filters and envelopes
Sawer pays homage to the envelopes and filters of a rare 1980’s Soviet analog synthesizer, Polivoks.

Maxx has devoted meticulous attention to the detail of Sawer’s filter and envelope designs, ensuring Sawer delivers a unique sonic character reminiscent of the Polivoks hardware.

But Polivoks, like all analog synthesizers, wasn’t without its problems. Keeping the oscillators stable and in tune has been likened to ‘moving a pile of live frogs, by wheelbarrow’, impossible!

As Sawer is algorithmic, this solves the problems of tuning and stability, however, in the same way electrical component instability makes analog gear unique (if not cranky), Sawer benefits from the 21st century equivalent, a coding error.

While programming the SAW oscillator, Maxx accidentally set some incorrect variables and immediately the sound gained bass, acquired some light but pleasing noise on the attack and an overall richer sonic spectra. Maxx realized this was no mistake but a discovery and built on this, adding some frequency modulation to give it a touch of analog authenticity and so ‘Sawer’ was born.

Like the transient beauty of Sakura (Japanese for Cherry Blossom), the sound of stringed instruments blossoms and fades. Image-Line brings you ‘Sakura’, the string physical modelling instrument, to express the delicacy and beauty of stringed sounds.

Reproduce the delicate pluck of a single string

Sakura can reproduce the delicate pluck of a single string, a violins bowing or the sonorous resonance of a grand piano. Most importantly, the curious musician can take control of every aspect of the simulation to create fantastic instruments. Ever wanted to know what a 20 foot guitar sounded like? Or a bowed piano? Now you can find out, Sakura opens up a world of string modelling possibilities, why not download the Sakura demo and try it for yourself. The Sakurazensen is coming, be there to experience it.

Virtual modelling in Sakura follows a 5 stage hanami-process :

 

Contact – An impulse, the mechanical contact with the string, is first generated then shaped to simulate plucks, picks, scrapes, hammers, taps or humble fingers.
Vibration – Sakura’s dual string model then gives the operator control over a wide range of parameters such as damping, tension, positioning and string properties.
String interaction – The dual strings are then mixed, panned and enveloped to simulate interactions.
Resonance – The string/s vibration then interacts with an 8-resonator ‘body simulator’ to create the size, material and shape of the instrument
Acoustics – Virtual acoustic space is then simulated with chorus, delay and reverberation effects.

Toxic Biohazard is the 4th generation in the line of Toxic synthesizers. Toxic Biohazard distills the best features from the previous 3 versions to deliver our most concentrated Toxic ever. Beware!

Toxic Biohazard features a hybrid synthesis engine, combining the best of FM and Subtractive synthesis. With the addition of a warm, analog-modelled filter and set of built-in effects, the Toxic concept remains one of convenience, simplicity, and superb sound quality.

 

Incorporating the best suggestions from our users,

Toxic Biohazard includes following enhancements:

 

Optimized engine. Improved the sound quality, with even more accurate waveshapes, and quicker rendering times.
“Physical” envelopes (amplitude and filter) physical modelling of how sounds in real world decay & resonate, for example, the sound of a water drop. Further, physical envelopes are rendered

real-time without any interpolation, avoiding noise artifacts and allowing Toxic Bio to deliver fast, accurate envelope times.

Pack of new effects: phaser, reverb, …

The FM technology

One of the ‘warmest’, crisp, and clear Frequency Modulation engines in the world, owes its sound to the precise calculation of the digital signal. Due to high-resolution DSP processing, it produces sound with an extremely low noise threshold; something that most FM engines cannot offer. The Toxic Biohazard sound was built from the ground up, via our own unique mathematical calculations and analog-modelling techniques.

 

The Oscillators

Completely alias-free, and well tuned for all sampling rates, they produce a rich, “fat” sound all across the spectrum. Due to the high quality of the anti-aliasing process, users will not encounter the shredding noise on high frequencies that has plagued FM synthesis in the past. Furthermore, the oscillators are calculated at extremely high speeds, keeping your CPU usage to a minimum. Toxic’s low CPU consumption affords the user plenty of room for external processing and running multiple instances. The oscillators also come equipped with Maxx Claster’s own powerful spectrum analysis technology. This allows the user to create his or her own waveforms, via the simple process of loading a WAV or AIFF format sound file. All of these features make the oscillators very flexible, and allow for the use of both synthetic and acoustic waveforms within Toxic. Each oscillator also comes with 32 built in ‘classic’ waveforms, each shown to be the most useful in FM synthesis.

 

 

The Effects

Made to assure high quality and flexibility is built into the synthesizer its self, Toxic Biohazard aims to reduce the need for external processing altogether! The effect modules are designed to give the user access to several types of effects, from aggressive, tube-like distortion, to warm stereo delay, reverb, flanger, and phaser effects. With our own pro-quality tape delay emulation, based on non-fixed delay buffer sizes, instead of the usual methods incorporated within digital delays, our delay lines give you warm sound, with “true” feedback and modulation. Lastly, the signal chain features an analog-modelled, parametric equalizer to further shape your sound. The EQ provides access to crisp, clear high-end definition, creamy mid ranges and earth-shaking low-end frequencies. The Toxic Biohazard effect modules expands its palette of sound to include everything from dark, atmospheric textures to razor sharp leads, fit to slice easily through any mix.

 

 

The Filter

Maxx Claster’s own analog-modelled, multimode filter is reminiscent of a certain silver box of old. Garnishing a warm, resonant Low-Pass mode, a smooth Band-Pass setting, and a creamy High-Pass mode, Toxic Biohazard gives a wealth of control over tone. The filter is further enhanced by modulation via a dedicated envelope generator and low frequency oscillator, as well as responding to velocity information and keyboard tracking. These features allow for extreme sound shaping, as well as subtle nuances attributed to dynamic playing.

 

 

The Sequencer

Powerful, yet simple, the sequencer offers a total of 64 steps, which can be divided into two independent, 32 step modules to allow double-polyphonic patterns. Using our own “Smart Sequencer” technology, when a chord is played, the module defines that chord, and tunes the pattern accordingly. The sequencer also allows for pure playback of the programmed sequence from single notes. Simply holding one chord can virtually create an arrangement for you!
