Device Overview

Name/Version: Partials 1.0
Author: OspreyInstruments  
Description: This is an additive synth behemoth. 64 partials, each with its own ADSR envelope that can modulate amplitude, phase, or panning. Each of the 8 voices also has an amp and filter envelope and LFO. I will save you the trouble of the head-math... this is a total of 512 oscillators and 520 envelopes. Needless to say, it is a little (a lot!) taxing on CPU.

The filters are clean resonant LPF's, in part because I felt it best suited the voicing of this synth, but also because analog modelled filters would demand more CPU cycles than I thought we could spare.

There is an incredible level of control, but with the fader banks, it is easy to quickly sculpt complex sounds (especially formant). That was the motivation of creating partials :)

If you are ever unsure what a parameter does, I have included tooltips for everything than can be read in the Ableton "info view" (bottom left corner).
