H.G. Fortune releases Ultra Swamp free
07th May 2011
H.G. Fortune has released
Ultra Swamp, a virtual synthesizer instrument
"Ultra Swamp is completely reworked
version of Swamp/Swamp XT so there are a lot of
differences to the prior versions and a hugely
increased sonic potential! It’s really for the good,
the bad and the weird sounds thus ranging from sweet
over dark to really strange and crazy stuff;
transforming the wave samples beyond recognition.
And it’s not just for pads and atmos but also for
snappy percussive sequencer sounds.
Although it does look not a very
complex synthesizer – don’t let yourself get fooled
by this as the sonic results will prove different,
as you can check with the sounddemo videos. This is
a very versatile synthesizer but is fairly easy to
edit. The patch programmers had so much fun with it
they did 3 complete additional banks of more
incredible patches for the Pro version!"
A free UltraSwamp (HGF birthday
edition) is available to download. This version has
a few limitations (only LowPass filter, 3 voices, EG
3 mono, no internal patch management, no MIDI Learn,
no velocity control on Attack / Decay of VCF / VCA
EG, no SF2 Load, 128 internal patches, but two
hidden easter egg gimmicks).
