Aspect 2

The Semi-modular polyphonic synthesizer

The Semi-modular polyphonic synthesizer

  • Analogue modelled sounds.
  • Stunning scalable user interface, with three colour schemes: dark, light, and classic blue.
  • A sound-designers dream. Flexible cable-free semi-modular routing via drag and drop encourages experimentation.
  • Use audio sources as modulations, and modulations as audio sources.
  • Combine and process modulation sources with mappers, quantizers, rectifiers, sample and holds, and many more processing modules.
  • Free upgrade for Aspect 1 owners.
  • Over 600 factory presets.

For Aspect 1 Owners

Aspect 2 is a totally free upgrade for current owners of Aspect 1. However, you will need an upgraded licence to use Aspect 2. If this applies to you, and you've not yet received an upgraded licence, please click here to email or message support and request your upgrade. In the meantime, you can use Aspect 2 in evaluation mode, which will allow you to save your presets and projects.

About Aspect 2

Aspect is a 32 note polyphonic software instrument that combines a great-sounding, powerful synthesis engine with a flexible semi-modular architecture and unparalleled ease of use.

The core of Aspect’s superb sound are two analogue modelled oscillators, each capable of producing a powerful selection of raw waveforms, and dual filters that can be routed in series, in parallel, or even blended into unique combinations.

Primary modulation sources come in the form of three analogue modelled envelopes - capable of producing quick, snappy attacks - three precise multi-segment envelope generators, and three free running or tempo synced LFOs.

A flexible patch section allows sources to be combined and processed to produce complex modulations from these simple sources, whilst a versatile modulation architecture allows practically anything to be used as a modulation source and destination.

All controls can be easily mapped to a hardware controller using the simplified MIDI Learn feature.

With optimised audio algorithms that won't overload your processor, rock-solid stability, and easy integration with any MIDI hardware controller, Aspect is ideal for live work. With a simple and intuitive interface, flexible Bank and Program management, and total parameter automation, Aspect fits right into your studio environment.

  • Use drag and drop modulation to quickly connect modulation sources to slots, change the modulation depth, and remove existing modulations.
  • For more precise modulation editing, use the contextual modulation editor, in which exact values can be typed.
  • MSEGs curves can contain an unlimited number of segments. Expand the MSEG editor to make precise edits to a curve.
  • Combine modulation sources using quantizers, mappers, lag generators, sample and holds, adder, rectifiers, and many other processing modules.

  • Warm Monophonic

    A demonstration of Aspect's warm virtual analogue sound, in which a simple monophonic bass-line is spiced up by subtle modulations of the oscillators and filters.
  • Look Around You

    A thick slice of trippy warbling polyphonic analogue sounds using the "Look Around You" preset and a simple arpeggio pattern.
  • Modular Synth Sync

    Extensive use of Aspect's flexible modular synth capabilities is present in this sample. The pitch of Oscillator2 (which is hard-synced to Oscillator1) is modulated by various LFO and Envelope shapes. Aspect's Unison capabilities are used to provide discrete voices in the left and right stereo panorama.
  • Thick Pad

    The 'PAD Hyped' preset playing a slow chord sequence. The Filters are arranged in series, with Filter 1 being a Highpass and Filter 2 a Lowpass. The ModWheel is used to change the Cutoff of both Filters by different amounts, producing a interesting variety of bandwidths.
  • Analogue Bass

    This demo shows Aspect with an analogue style monophonic bass sound, reminiscent of the Roland SH series of instruments. Oscillator 1 plays a Sawtooth, and Oscillator 2 a Pulse with 75% duty-cycle dropped down an octave. Some subtle LFO modulation is used on the oscillators and filter to emulate analogue drift.
  • Trance Arpeggio

    A very simple Trance style arpeggio, played with a sound based on the "Trance Hit" preset. Each note consists of three stacked unison voices that have different Oscillator Pitch, Filter, and Pan settings.
