Alpha 3 - Virtual Analogue Synthesizer

Focussed on the essential modules of an analogue synthesizer Alpha 3 offers true hands on operation. Everything is where you would expect it, nothing is more complex as it needs to be. Nothing is less powerfull as it needs to be. Alpha 3 is the sum of all our experience in synthesizer manufacturing.

  • AU and VST plug-in instrument for Mac and PC
  • 2 Oscillators with numerous waveforms
  • PWM (symmetry of all waveforms modulatable)
  • Switchable freerun for both oscillators
  • Extended Ringmodulation (modulatable Off-AM-RM)
  • Noise Oscillator
  • Spread (5 detuned oscillators per voice, adjustable)
  • Rich sounding multimode filter with saturation
  • dedicated filter ADSFR envelope
  • Amplifier section with dedicated ADSFR envelope
  • 7 slot Modulation Matrix, 19 sources, 18 destinations

Alpha 3 allows Frequency Modulation of the Filters Cutoff, a feature only found in very few Synthesizers. The source of the Filter FM can be any oscillator, even noise. Together with the Ring Modulator which can be gradually morphed from pure Oscillator 2 over Amplitude-Modulation to Ringmodulation this is a guarantee for some of very finest and most exotic sounds a classic subtractive synth can produce.

Alpha 3 has two oscillators with each producing a continuously adjustable mix of 2 from 30 waveforms. Taking into account that both basic waveform can have a different pitch already allows for thousands of resulting waveforms. But don’t worry, our concept of handling is dead easy, pick the waveforms and adjust the mix. Done.

Just when you get tired about the many over-complex synthesizers of today, when you want to return to the roots, the beginning of all synthetic sound, the times when a Synthesizer could be fully programmed, then the Alpha 3 is the right synthesizer for you. Get the synth that you can control. Completely.

  • 3 individual LFOs with tweakable attack time, speed (syncable), multiple shapes, switchable freerun
  • Portamento / Glide with various modes
  • adjustable Chorus, no other effects (intentionally)
  • Adjustable analogness
  • Global tuning and Microtonal support
  • Powerfull ECS (MIDI learn for almost all Controllers)
  • sample accurate processing, total recall
  • all controls automatable
  • direct access to all banks and presets
  • 32 voice polyphonic (adjustable), true mono mode
