Description

A real polyphonic synthesizer with character.

Synth-8 is a two-oscillators eight-voices synthesizer with a faithful reproduction of a classic american multimode analog filter with saturation, 12dB and 24dB rolloff and gritty resonance. The synth architecture is easy to understand and operate but has unique features: classical waveforms with waveshaping and detuned doubling of the oscillators with “Fat” modes, dedicated envelope for the noise, Ring Mod, Hard Sync for all oscillator modes, velocity controls for filters and envelopes.
Finally, the Unison modes allow stacking up to 8 voices: with “Fat” oscillators this makes a total of 32 detuned oscillators at once! The module panel provides quick access to user’s preferred parameters by four assignable knobs. These can be also used to tweak many other parameters arranged in rows that can be navigated through dedicated buttons.

The Legend ’70s Editor has a whole screen to control the synthesizer in real-time and make the editing of new patches simple as having a real panel in your hands.
The synthesizer comes with lots of presets that can be selected and tweaked and stored in the Legend ’70s programs.

Last but not least, the Synth-8 module also offers a dedicated arpeggiator section , capable of cyclically playing the notes in the desired order, and 4×16 sequences that can be assigned to the generation parameters.
