Device Overview

Name/Version: Spektro Komplex 1.1
Author: IcaroFerre  
Description: Spektro Komplex is a polyphonic synthesizer designed to create complex and unique sounds.

Like the Buchla 261e module, Komplex uses two oscillators to produce FM sounds. What really makes this synth stand out is it's habilities to morph the waveform of the first oscillator (carrier) and use a different waveform for the second oscillator (modulator).

The frequency of the second oscillator (modulator) is calculated based on the operation:

Oscillator 1 Frequency (operation) Ratio = Oscillator 2 Frequency

For example: If the frequency of the first oscillator is 220Hz, the operation is set to multiplication, and the ratio is set to 2, the frequency of the second oscillator will be 440Hz. A variable offset can also be added to the resulting frequency.

3 different effects that can be used to further manipulate the sound:

- Shape: fold, wrap or clip the signal.

- Overdrive

- Spread: creates a stereo-widening effect by delaying the right channel.

You can use Spektro Komplex to create anything from classic FM bass to metallic percussion sounds. It's also a great tool for sound designer who want to create complex synthetic sounds.

Spektro Komplex now comes bundled with a copy of the Spektro StepFilter device!
StepFilter is a 24 db/oct ladder filter that comes with a built-in step sequencer. The step sequencer can be used to trigger decay envelopes for Strike (cutoff) and Accent (cutoff and resonance).

Spektro Komplex is priced at U$8,00


What's new in version 1.1:

- Major sound engine improvement - We re-designed the sound engine to make Komplex sound a lot better!
- Polyphony - Komplex can now play up to 8 voices! You can now use Komplex to create some beautiful FM keys.
- Improvements to the Wave Morph section - morphing between the 3 waveforms sounds a lot smoother.
- Improvements to the 3 ADSR EGs - adjustable curves (Log - Lin - Expo) and equivalent ranges to all 3 E.G.s.
- New Vel buttons letss you enable or disable velocity control for the FM and Morph / Shape envelopes independently.
- Improved FM section - we've fixed some issued related to the FM section and the modulating wave's phase.
- You can now choose from 6 different waveforms for modulation: Sine, Triangle, Saw, Ramp, Square and S&H.
- Minor design improvements to improve usability.
- Fixed Shaper control range.
- New preset bank.
