SKULPTsynth SE is a powerful portable performance synthesizer that allows musicians to perform and compose anywhere. This lightweight USB or battery-powered synthesizer features a unique 32-oscillator virtual analog sound engine. The powerful synth architecture includes 2 WAVE groups, with four oscillators per voice, a morphable 2-pole resonant filter plus an extensive 8-slot modulation matrix and digital effects.
The integrated Arp and 256-note Sequencer allows automatic rhythmic patterns and melodies to be played. SKULPT supports MPE for next-generation expressive performances. Musicians, DJs and producers will find 128 exciting preset sounds to start their synth adventure right out of the box. The free MODALapp and MODALplugin for all primary computer and mobile platforms integrates easily with any VST3 and AU compatible recording environment.
SKULPTsynth SE and SKULPTsynthesiser can be polychained in mixed setups (up to 4 synths) and the patches are cross-compatible. A wide variety of free and commercial patch collections are already available to start the musical adventure immediately.
Two WAVE groups per voice with four oscillators each provide in-depth hands-on control over the sound and sweep smoothly between Sine, Triangle, Saw, Square, PWM and Noise sources. Additional oscillator modulation with FM, Ring Modulation or the massively powerful built-in LFOs reveal unparalleled potential for tonal customization.
The adjustable 2-pole filters go from lowpass to bandpass and highpass. With its resonance function, it picks up rich harmonics at high resonance levels.
Three dedicated envelopes for the filter, amp and modulation give excessive control over dynamics and expression. Two LFOs, one global and one polyphonic, can be synchronized to internal or external tempo. The polyphonic LFO also synchronizes with a division of the fundamental frequency of the notes played for both brutal and subtle modulation of the sound.
SKULPTsynth SE supports MPE and offers musicians creative new musical ways to model sounds with your fingertips. Plug in your MPE-compatible MIDI controller and venture into the next generation of expressive sound articulations only possible with a real instrument like SKULPTsynth SE.
SKULPTsynth SE has a deceptively capable real-time sequencer on board. It’s pretty easy to capture, quantize, loop & hold performances, and capture four lanes of Animation on the fly. This alone introduces some insane modulation possibilities and is the key to getting to know this synthesizer.
This, combined with the customizable onboard arpeggiator, chord and transpose functions, opens up a whole new world for complex and exciting synthesizer sounds.
Built-in distortion (waveshaping overdrive) and delay effects add character and depth to the signal. The distortion delivers interesting overtone textures from undertone to heavy overdrive.
The delay effect injects expressive complexity from short slap-backs and room-like reverberations to long overlapping or psychedelic echoes using the sequencer animation. The delay can be modulated to create chorusing and other time-based effects. Internal or external sync generate rhythmic interaction with the tempo of a track.
SKULPTsynth SE has a comprehensive set of connections to power and control the synth via USB, monitor with headphones or via the dedicated line output, synchronize with external equipment via the full-size MIDI in and out or the 3.5mm Sync input or output.
