Image Line Software introduces a revolution to the world of Additive Synthesis with Morphine 1.1



Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium, July 10, 2007 - Image Line Software, the creator of FL Studio, has released its first additive synthesizer, Morphine. With a flexible architecture and low CPU usage algorithms that retain a warm sound, Morphine introduces a revolution to the world of Additive Synthesis. Available in AudioUnit, VSTi and Standalone versions.

"The development of Morphine was a long, stressful process - it took thousands of man-hours work, but it was worth it" said Maxx Claster, the developer of Morphine. "Now we have a powerful additive synthesizer with a tightly optimized, high-quality sound engine, great resynthesis features and a logical user-friendly interface."

Morphine: Adictive Additive Synth - Generator Panel A
Breaking the Myth of Additive Synthesis

Additive synthesis has long been considered complicated and difficult to implement, but Morphine sweeps aside these perceptions. In many ways, Morphine can be compared to a multi-sampler that plays 'synthetic' samples. Morphine can capture the harmonic variations of any sound, as a series of snapshots or breakpoints, and 'plays' by interpolating a series of breakpoints in real-time. Users also have the freedom to program the breakpoints manually. Additive synthesis in Morphine seems simple and, in fact, it really is.


High quality sound

Morphine's pristine and detailed sound is guaranteed by the 128 harmonic oscillator engine, optimized for fast amplitude and frequency modulation across an unlimited number of harmonic snapshots per spectrum.


Just like the original

If authentic reproduction of instruments is important to you then Morphine will deliver by taking any audio sample and automatically 'resynthesizing' it. Morphine has four generators per voice with each generator able to map a unique sound on every note, if needed. The noise generator can mix library or user-specified audio samples back into the resynthesized sound to reproduce more complex untuned noises associated with acoustic instruments such as breath, key and hammer sounds. Together, these features allow the accurate recreation of almost any acoustic instrument.

Effects

Morphine incorporates several built-in effects including Portamento, Distortion, Chorus, Stereo Delay, Reverb and 8-band Graphic Equalization, for creating a perfectly customized sound.


Presets

Complex evolving pads, deep basses, acoustic instruments, synthetic leads and keyboards -everything is possible with Morphine, which ships with 340 high-quality factory sounds, covering a broad range of music styles.

Key features:
  1. High-quality sound engine optimized for low CPU usage with fast amplitude and frequency modulation response
  2. 4 independent "generators" per voice
  3. Keyboard layering with 128 unique keyboard zones
  4. Unlimited number of harmonic "snapshots" (breakpoints) per spectrum
  5. Amplitude, detune, and panning control for all harmonics
  6. Filtering and velocity response for each Generator source
  7. Highly CPU optimized, accurate resynthesis, allowing emulation of audio samples with high precision
  8. Manual override options for the resynthesis process to achieve accurate emulations
  9. Ability to import wave shapes from audio files
  10. Variable-time control for spectra, mix/morph envelopes (can also be linked to key number, velocity or any other controller)
  11. 4 PWM filters (spectral emulation of comb filtering, unison or pulse-width)
  12. Additional generator that allows any noise sample audio file to be mixed with the synthesized sound, complete with filtering
  13. A morphing path, which morphs harmonics in real-time, controlled internally or from external modulation source(s)
  14. A morphing square, which mixes the 4 generator sources in a single, convenient interface
  15. Four multipoint (EG) envelopes, which can be routed to various internal Morphine controls
  16. 1 to 32 note polyphony, user-selectable
  17. ADSR master envelope
  18. Adjustable velocity response
  19. Up to 5 in-built simultaneous effects: Chorus, Delay, Reverb, Equalizer, Distortion
  20. Attractive, user-friendly interface, developed through thousands of man-hours of testing and development
  21. 290 high-quality factory sounds
  22. Available in VSTi, Audio Units and Standalone versions.
