Intuitive and Quick

Merge and sculpt FM sounds with a single, intuitive, knob turn. The X-Lab engine merges two FM sounds by smoothly blending their envelopes, modulation routing, and feedback.

The X-Lab algorithm can merge sounds with radically different FM structures and overtones, all without losing the fundamental tuning of the sound. Pitch locking can also be turned off to create brilliant atonal transitions between FM sounds.

Merged sound can then be saved, recalled, and merged with additional FM soundsor so called merging process FUSION FM.

Features for Live Performance

Sequencer Effects
Enjoy two different slice modes to mix up your sequences. RANDOM which scrambles your sequence, and STUTTER which loops a snippet of your sequence before jumping right back in time.
