Audio Damage AD046 Quanta v1.1.0 WIN & MacOSX
Size 23 Mb
Audio Damage has announced the release of Quanta, a new Granular Synthesizer plug-in for macOS and Windows
Quanta is a full-featured ten-voice true stereo granular synthesizer, with up to a hundred 1000ms grains per voice, and full control over the grain state, with direct randomization and modulation of most parameters. Drag-and-drop a sample (WAV, AIFF, Ogg, or FLAC) on to the window and go to work.
AD046 Quanta HIGHLIGHTS
With two multi-mode filters (with LP, HP, BP and notch in 2-pole and 4-pole topologies), and a “sidecar” virtual-analog oscillator and noise generator that can be used in addition to, or injected into, the grain engine, Quanta is a fully capable subtractive synth in its own right, and will work as a granular or subtractive (or both) synth without any sample at all.
Quanta has mod coming out its ears. First up are four of our new FEGs (Flexible Envelope Generator), a 99-point looping function generator with optional host tempo sync. Then add two arbitrary-waveshape LFOs, a multi-source sample-and-hold module, and fully user-controllable MIDI assignments, with nearly every control on the panel as a destination.
Quanta is customizable to your taste and playing style. With full MPE support, it can take advantage of the extended control set of your Linnstrument, Seaboard, Soundplane, Continuum, or other MPE controller, and support for TUN files lets you use tuning tables. The resizable Hi-DPI GUI lets you adjust the size to match your visual needs, and the cross-platform preset mechanism lets you share your creations with your friends and collaborators, no matter what system they are using.
The synth has been updated to version 1.1, with changes including a huge reduction in “clicking” from voice stealing, usability and UI updates, and many small bug fixes.
CHANGES IN AD046 Quanta V1.1.0
> Voice activity lights have been replaced with graph indicators. These show a sum of the level of mod going to the Output. (i.e. the graph is the total of everything routed to the OUTPUT channel in the mod matrix.) This gives a much better visual indicator of voice activity than the previous “is this thing on?” LED.
> FEGs now have animated activity indicators showing the progress of the FEG for every voice.
> FEGs now have a RESET button; this returns the FEG to its default “ADSR” state.
> FLFOs now have animated activity indicators for each active voice.
> Maximum voice count has been increased to 15. This should solve any lingering voice-rollover issues with MPE controllers.
> The salmon color of the interface has had its richness of salmon increased approximately 15%; we are confident this is the richest salmon color in the audio plugin industry.
> The voice stealing algorithm (which was the source of most if not all of the “clicks” that many users experienced) has been totally replaced, and Quanta is certified click-free.
> The cause of the CPU loading when the UI was closed on iOS was found and destroyed.
> The Mac factory preset download issues have been solved.
> Numerous improvements and fixes, and a complete rebuild against all current plugin SDKs.
