KV331 Audio launches Synthmaster One

The new soft synth has an in-depth wavetable library and 12 preconfigured modulation matrix entries.

KV331 Audio has announced the availability of SynthMaster One – its new easy-to-use wavetable soft synth.

Available in AU and VST formats for Mac OS X and Windows, SynthMaster One shares the same sound engine as its award-winning big brother, SynthMaster, but boosts it with wavetable synthesis features.

SynthMaster One has a simple layout, rich wavetable content, and inspiring factory presets from a world-class crack team of sound designers – including Arksun, Bülent Biyikoglu, Gerçek Dorman, Ufuk Kevser, Rob Lee, Vorpal Sound, Xenos Soundworks, and Aiyn Zahev.

In implementing true wavetable synthesis, SynthMaster One opens up new possibilities for sound design. Unlike SynthMaster, where only up to 16 waveforms can be sequenced to create a wavetable, SynthMaster One can read files that contain wavetables in them.

SynthMaster One comes complete with a rich library that can be extended by placing wavetables in its Waveforms folder. Furthermore, each of its two oscillators feature 17 different algorithms controlled by Tone and Phase parameters to shape the oscillator wavetable.

SynthMaster One’s oscillators have stereo outputs and are capable of up to 16 Unison voices. By using the Voices, Voices Mix, Detune Curve, Detune Spread, Pan Spread, Tone Spread, Phase Spread, and Wave Index Spread parameters, each oscillator can generate a rich ‘supersaw’ sound.

Each sub-oscillator can also be connected to its associated oscillator in five different modes, meaning users can choose to use them as regular sub-oscillators or have them do complex modulations, such as ring modulation, amplitude modulation, phase modulation, or frequency modulation. The sub-oscillators can also synthesize different types of noise.

SynthMaster One offers four different categories for each of its filters — namely, ladder, diode ladder, state variable, and bite, and all filter algorithms are created using zero-delay feedback filter technology.

Aside from 12 preconfigured modulation matrix entries to make sound design even easier, new modulations can quickly be created by simply dragging a source or destination onto any knob on the user interface. Up to 24 modulation matrix entries can be created using 24 modulation sources and 234 destinations.

SynthMaster One is available in 64-bit AU and VST formats for online purchase directly from KV331 Audio for $79.
