MOTU has just announced their brand-new synth plug-in MX4, and I was privileged to be on the sound design team for it, programming a good number of the patches. Click on the picture to the left to see it full-size.
Have a listen to a demo here:
Here’s MOTU‘s overview of this monster synthesizer:
Meet the new instrument plug-in powerhouse for your studio. Inspired by legendary subtractive synthesizers, MX4 combines several core synthesis techniques in a unified, hybrid synthesis engine that delivers fresh and vintage sounds alike.
As you explore its many banks and hundreds of presets, you’ll soon rely on MX4 as your “go-to” instrument. Fat basses, nasty leads, analog pads, vintage electronica — it’s all at your fingertips and conveniently saved with your host application projects for instant recall.
Tweaking sounds is fast and easy with clearly presented controls in one window — but with a depth and sophistication true synth programmers will appreciate. Create your music with pristine 32-bit sound quality, unlimited voices and unlimited polyphony (as much as your host computer allows). MX4‘s flexible programming and advanced modulation architecture provide the intimacy of a vintage synth, the flexibility of a modular synth, and the innovation of a virtual synth.
Next influential album. "The Mississippi Delta was shining like a National guitar..." (pic on right is the latter). @PaulSimonMusic broke all the rules with #Graceland, and came out the other side having created a wholly original and inspiring fusion of musical cultures. https://t.co/pXIw0q7Drm
Next most influential album: @billyjoel is, in my eyes, one of the greatest songwriting craftsmen ever. He assimilates numerous and diverse influences fluidly, then brings it back with freshness, color, and a sense of place and belonging. His music is the soundtrack of my life. https://t.co/FGFcI9hJJW
Next album. Complete genre shift. Discovering Gershwin as a teenager led me to Ravel, and when I heard how this small-handed Spanish virtuoso conquered the demands of the left hand concerto...then brought her dazzling virtuosity and grace to the G major one...it's perfection. https://t.co/R8eExkViu9
