The main new features are
Controllers and Modifiers:
- Controllers are input
widgets that allow you to use a control signal
like Velocity, Keytrack or unison as a source
signal for a module input. You could already do
this but they have been improved both
graphically and feature wise. Most controllers
now have a popup panel with extra settings so
you can customize how they work. For Velocity
you can select response curve, for Keytrack you
can change mapping, for Unison you can select a
specific value for each voice.
- Modifiers are like
controllers except that they modify an existing
input. So you can set Velocity to control the
input level of an ADSFR signal. Or you can use
the ModWheel modifier to change how much LFO is
applied to the pitch input.
The main point of these additions is
that they make it very easy to do what would
probably involve a whole module and some extra
cabling in most other modulars. In Sonigen Modular
it is a few clicks and a small icon.
There have also been some
improvements to the graphics.
The Sonigen Modular public beta is
available as a free download for Windows PC.
