ChannelRobot Shapiro 2 -
Synthesizer Virtual Instrument
We've all got more than one soft synth. The trouble is they can all start to sound sort of samey. Sure there's a place for those classic synth sounds, and every synth should be able to make them, but to make your work stand out from the crowd you need useful vibrant, and original sound content - welcome to Shapiro 2. Adding Shapiro 2 will spice up your mixes, add ear-catching unique sounds, and help you stand out in the marketplace.
Shapiro 2 is an eight oscillator synth, offering a different approach to sound-generation, using oscillators in matched pairs, and allowing you to modulate the output in a range of different ways. Outputs from the oscillator-pairs pass through their own dynamic "shaping" processes.
First is an FM shaper – this isn't FM synthesis, instead, it using a sine wave to shape the timbral output of the oscillator pairs. Next is a “classic” Wave Shaper, this is followed by our one-of-a-kind Field processor, that uses impulse responses in a convolution engine to move the timbre of the output. Finally, there is a dedicated multi-mode filter section.
The output of all four voices is then combined and passed through the comprehensive effects section, then into a legato system derived from our work on orchestral ROMplers.
Shapiro 2 allows unprecedented control over where and when modulation can be applied, and the shape the modulation takes, to give you shifting and changing audio output. Modulators include Envelopes, User-drawn LFOs, variable-step and tempo Gates, Sample & Hold, Keyboard, and Velocity.
Shapiro 2 also comes with a per-voice Arpeggiator (so 4 arps) to allow you to build interesting and unique melodic content.
Shapiro 2 has extensive CC control management and is MPE enabled. It includes per-voice pitch-bend and per-voice keyboard splits.
On top of all this is Shapiro 2's randomization and morphing system – randomize any number of voices, morph between two different "slots" (and include or exclude any voice in this process) and include or exclude a voice in preset loading. All this functionality is designed to give you very quick and easy access to generating new sound presets, that is unique to you.
