Discovery Pro Mac includes 32 and 64-bit, 12 oscillators Virtual Analog + Sampler VSTi, Audio Units Synthesizer featuring 4 layers, unison, WAV and SoundFont (SF2) support, PADSynth re-synthesis, 2X oversampling/undersampling, built-in arpeggiator, sync, FM, 12 filter types, panning modulation, stereo delay and gate effects, graphic envelope modulation. Imports and export Nord Lead 2 SysEx data. 64 bit compatibility for Audio Units, VST on Mac and VST on Windows. PADsynth algorithm generates very beautiful sounds from WAVE waveforms and imported waves. Perfectly looped wavetable samples rendered as SFZ. It easily generates sounds of ensembles, choirs, metallic sounds (bells) and many others. 2 new oscillators that result in a even broader sonic palette. The new parabolic waveform will be bliss for beautiful pads, soft sounds and new FM tones. Pink noise brings that warm and lovely sound from classic synthesizers. Waveform oscillator. Now you can easily add new waveforms and wavetables in DWB banks, WAV or SoundFont 2.04 (SF2) formats, also supporting 24 bit waveforms. Since it's not virtual analog synthesis we took extreme care of it by adding one of the best interpolation algorithms, resulting in very little aliasing and extraordinary resampling quality. 12dB and 24dB Moog modeled filters called X and Y, bringing a more sophisticated tone in addition to the 8 previous Discovery filters. Graphic Modulation envelopes that take your sound palette to high degree sound shaping. Just click and hold your mouse to draw time-synced mod destinations and get fresh textures.
