HG Fortune The Tiger
The Tiger Synth is a synthesizer capable of multilayered sounds.
It is capable of some specific extras from the Aux oscillators, as well as groovy rhythmic sounds and typical synth sounds.
There are various modulation options, and a possibility to integrate 'hardwired' controllers like joysticks, touchpads or ribbons via the 4 UCC knobs (User assignable MIDI CC) which can be selected as mod sources too. Alongside with Aftertouch, Velocity and Modwheel you have several options for realtime interaction.
Two 16 step Rhythmic Pattern Gators (RPG) and a 16 Step Modulator can turn pads into complex rhythmic sounds. Two Aux oscillators can add some additional spacey sounds (a little like with Altair 4, according to HG Fortune), or can be used as mod source for Amplitude Modulation.
Main features (based on Pro version):
4 PCM wave Oscillators each with 256 waves (other SF2 loadable)
2 Aux oscillators (monophonic) as mod and audio sources
1 24 dB resonant Lowpass filter with ADSR EG and 4 channel mod mixer
