Audio Damage showed the first executable beta version of their new large software synthesizer Quanta at the Superbooth 2018 in Berlin.
Quanta is a full-featured ten-voice true stereo granular synthesizer, with up to a hundred 1000ms grains per voice, and full control over the grain state, with direct randomization and modulation of most parameters. Drag-and-drop a sample (WAV, AIFF, Ogg, or FLAC) on to the window and go to work.
Quanta promises to make granular synthesis particularly accessible and also incorporates a simple conventional oscillator and a noise generator, which, like the source sample, are also sent to the granular engine.
The operation should be as easy as a comparable subtractive synthesizer. That sounds like interesting sound results!
As an addition to the ten-part granular synthesis, a “sidecar” oscillator is available.
There are also two multimode filters and the company’s well-known cross-platform preset mechanism.
For editing, the plug-in understands AIFF, WAV, Ogg, FLAC and MP3 sound data.
Four flexible envelope generators (FEG) are the great feature of the tone generator.
You can easily create and remove nodes, creating extremely many different curves. Furthermore, there are two equally flexible LFOs (FLFO), which are already known from the Discord4 plug-in.
The graphical user interface is optimized for a great workflow.
Quanta synth plugin runs on Mac OSX 10.9 or higher, Windows 8.1 or higher as AAX, AU, VST and VST3 format in 32 or 64 bit audio resolution.
On iOS, it runs on iOS 11.0 or later and costs 8.99 euros.
