Device Overview

Name/Version: TERRA by K-Devices 1.0
Author: kdevices  
Description: TERRA is the definitive choice for sound designers and producers.
With its flexible structure, effects, modulators, and sync options this polyphonic synthesizer can produce any kind of sound! TERRA is a deep but easy to use Max For Live instrument device, so powerful and versatile. From edgy leads and bass lines, to drones, layered pads, complex rhythmic structures, unusual sequences and experimental sounds; you can do anything with TERRA.
With an arsenal of features, sound designers, producers, and experimental composers can get so many different results.
A world of sounds: that's Terra!


How it works?
TERRA is designed to be your deep and easy to use sonic weapon. Its straight but flexible structure will let you work in total confidence, setting things up to reach many different kind of sounds! Three oscillators, with three waveform manipulation parameters, go thru exclusive ADSRs, pan, and amp. Oscillators can also interact between them via hard/soft sync, advanced FM, ring modulation, and, in one oscillator, self phase modulation.

Sound goes then to effects. There are three effect slots, a lot of effects for each slot, and a one click router operator that change signal flow according to four presets. This is how the sound is generated and handled. Then comes the modulation, a lot! Four modulators, multiple kinds of modulations, and exclusive bipolar amount to affect to a lot of TERRA's parameters! Up to eight parameters can be modulated, by four killer sources, each with exclusive amount, and a terrific feedback on user interface! You can even close the modulators panel, keeping an eye on modulated parameters, working modulators, kind and amount of modulation. Finally, if you work in unison, a special panel will let you edit pitch ratio and amplitude for each single voice.
It's so versatile, so powerful, so... Easy.

Huge synthesis.
TERRA synthesis engine is based on additive-generated interpolated wavetables: big sound, zero aliasing! The oscillators section is reach of options and parameters. Phase distortion, folding functions, hard and soft sync, ring modulation, linear and exponential FM, individual ADSRs, panorama and amplitude; all you need to create your sound is here.

Smart FX approach
Three effect slots are available. You choose from a list of effects (from classics to oddities). The routing selector lets you change the order of oscillators and effects with just a click! This opens to immediate changes and surprising results.

Unison power
In Unison mode, TERRA not just unifies all its eight voices: thanks to the unison panel you can edit pitch ratio and amplitude for each voice! This let TERRA achieve also additive synthesis, super saw fatness and odd cinematic stuff.

Massive Modulation.
Modulation is strong in TERRA: you can use up to four modulators. Each modulator can be an advanced step sequencer or envelopes generator, an LFO, an ADSR or a DAHR; each modulator can modulate up to two targets with bipolar exclusive amount. You can modulate up to eight targets, with four different modulation sources and different amounts! Each modulated dial will also show the modulator color, its kind and its modulation amount.

TERRA is an evolving instrument, free updates will add new effects, presets, wavetables, and more. Be sure to follow K-Devices for the latest developments.
