This instrument uses formant synthesis to generate
rich, breathy pads sounds.
The synthesis engine features 2 tuned oscillators
and 1 breath oscillator, processed through 2 formant filters. The
filters are controlled with an ultra-slick X/Y control pad, enabling
realtime automation of complex morphing effects (for instance, from a
“a” vowel to a “e”). Predefined formants are available, but it’s also
possible to define your own ones with the built-in formants editor.
Ultra-rich vocal pads are possible, thanks to the
combination of unison mode, granular delay, chorus and reverb. The midi
automation capabilities of Angelina are perfect for these long,
evolving, breathy synth choirs.
Finally, the microtuning feature opens up new
textural worlds for the ambient artists: if you’re scoring the next
Alien, you must hear the outer space atmospheres this synth can generate
