Morphing Synth Engine for Kontakt
Quadral 2 is an imagination laboratory. Randomize your way to your next favorite electronic score using 16 additional groups of hand-crafted atmospheric synth pads. Combine quadrants to create layered leads, asteroid ambiences, or evolving textures using Soundiron's Ouroboros modulation engine and tempo-synced XY pad. Each sound has been sculpted with care, allowing you to weave layers together into spectacular presets with categories like Blurry, Electric, Icy, LoFi, Nature, and Zen. They’ve also included over 250 factory patches of Arps, Basses, Leads, FX, Pads, and Plucks to get you started on your interstellar journey through space and time.
Quadral 2 is a powerful sampled synthesis engine, ideal for film and game composers who need a fast workflow while maintaining their creative spark. Dive in to tweak and automate every parameter with total control, or just click Randomize to generate a virtually endless universe of fresh ideas. All systems go – Time to make one giant leap for mankind.
The main user interface is built around four separate quadrants, an assignable XY Pad, quick modulator + filter routing menus, and arpeggiator system to expand your creative potential. Each layer in Quadral 2 has fully independent sound-shaping options including Attack, Release, Offset, Pitch and Pan. Every quadrant has its own individual filter with 39 built-in filter types, as well as modulators using a variety of sources: LFO, ADSR and Velocity with 5 selectable targets: Volume, Pitch, Pan, Filter Frequency, Filter Resonance.
The central XY Pad can be used in a variety of ways but defaults as volume control between the 4 layers. Each axis can be customized to affect a different parameter and can be used to control filters or a select amount of FX options. Rhythmic motion can also be added to the XY Pad, automatically adjusting each axis in a tempo-syncable way. You can also limit the X and Y range to create new patterns and fluctuations in tone.
You can set up dynamic patterns with Soundiron's integrated ARP arpeggiator system, featuring a suite of abilities like rhythm, direction, swing and randomization. The easy Glide feature is also included, instantly turning this machine into a monophonic legato/portamento instrument with adjustable pitch bend speed control. Dive in to tweak and automate every parameter with total control over every detail, or just hit the Random button to instantly generate an infinite variety of new sound, parameter and dynamic modulator combinations. The Macro knobs to the left and right of the XY Pad are used to adjust volume LFO depth and speed parameters with a single control if Volume LFO routing is enabled.
Quadral 2 ships with over 250 Factory Presets in 6 categories, each one lovingly crafted. They can be easily perused using the Preset Browser. You can also save new patches you’ve made using the browser, or share presets with other users. Finally, don’t forget to fire up the FX rack panel and load your synth up with dozens of DSP effects, including convolution reverb with over 100 of our custom real-world and special FX spaces to perfect your sound.
The interface is rounded-out by their modular FX rack panel, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes their favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. We’ve added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
