News Fxpansion D-CAM: Synth Squad

FXpansion has announced the release of DCAM: Synth Squad, the much anticipated suite of advanced synthesizer instruments.

The advanced DCAM analogue modelling technology is designed to reconstruct the sound of vintage hardware on your computer at a fraction of the cost.

At the heart of DCAM: Synth Squad are three modeled synthesizers – Strobe, Amber and Cypher – with the weight and power of old-skool analogue, according to FXpansion.

DCAM: Synth Squad is compatible with all major plug-in formats and sequencing environments – Windows / Mac OS X; VST / AU / RTAS – and comes complete with a large suite of presets ready to play and tweak, FXpansion says.

Strobe
Strobe adds polyphony, osc-stacking, a multimode filter and deep modulation to create a modern classic. Strobe specializes in no-nonsense analogue-style leads, sick basses and complex pads, the company says.

Amber
One of the first attempts to realistically model the divide-down string ensemble synths from the '70s, Amber is designed to “capture the lush, psychedelic sound of these much-loved but often-forgotten instruments.” A formant filter, 3 separate chorus models, a variety of playing responses and flexible modulation build upon the legacy to deliver a new take on these vintage classics.

Cypher
A multi-oscillator synth geared towards audio-rate modulation and other advanced oscillator functions, Cypher combines “the rawness and tone of analogue oscs with modern luxuries like polyphony, precise tuning and a wealth of innovative features made possible by digital technology, ” according to FXpansion.

Fusor
Evoking the era of huge wrap-around analogue keyboard rigs, Fusor is a semi-modular layering environment for the DCAM synths with extra LFOs, envelope followers, step-sequencers and a suite of high quality FX. Fusor’s modulation capabilities allow you to use a synth’s LFOs and envelopes to drive other synths, FX and other devices, they say.

Other highlights include:
  • Oscillators that “ooze heavy sound pressure”.
  • Amp stages that can be overloaded.
  • “Weighty, organic” filters.
  • MIDI Learn, BPM-synced LFOs and envelopes.
  • Multiple oversampling for ultra-high quality mixdowns.
  • Intuitive and powerful modulation system.
  • Inspiring and creative preset library.
  • Plug-in integration with all major Mac/Windows hosts.

Pricing & Availability
DCAM: Synth Squad is available worldwide in August 2009 for £157 / $249 / €189 (excluding local taxes where applicable).
