New VSTi Synth From HG Fortune

Buying Choices
HG Fortune has released a new VSTi synthesizer - AlioNoctis. Here's what he has to say about it...
In some way AlioNoctis adds up many of the benefits from ProtoPlasm, STS-33 and Atonoise VST/i with the ease of use many still love with the STS-21. In fact this new VSTi synthesizer by HG Fortune goes soundwise beyond all the aforementioned ones. So you can expect what's typical for most of HG Fortune synths: Vivid athmos, textures, pads but also some rhythmicated sounds, all can be enriched by the out-of-this-world flavour of Inferno, Spooks and of course the highly efficient Bass Enhancer.
This is a new mark- and milestone in the VSTi synthesizer development by HG Fortune.
Pro Version basic features:
  • three digital PCM-wave oscillators powered by 128 selectable waveforms (as external sf2 file)
  • 3rd oscillator with 8 slot wavemorphing selectable
  • Oscillator Mix via X/Y Pad and various modulations
  • two resonant filters (24db Lowpass and 12db Highpass)
  • three ADSR-style envelope generators
  • Inferno for adding generated upper harmonics
  • Spook 1 & 2 effects with X/Y Pad and various modulations
  • Super Modulation X/Y Control Pad to modulate up to 10 destinations simultaneuosly
  • LFO Section with 7 LFO plus one Sample & Hold most with bpm synced tempo and key sync
  • very efficient Bass Enhancer
  • 8 dedicated Lazy buttons
  • Straight and easy access for editing on the GUI
Of course the free version does not have all the benefits of the Pro version, so there are only:
  • 5 voices instead of 10
  • 64 patches for the internal bank - though 3 add. banks of 64 patches come with the free version.
  • only one Lazy button for all related parameters instead of 8 incl. 7 for dedicated sections.
In general I did increase the number of voices for the free version but reduced the number of patches per bank though I did enable loading of sf2 files for two slots. As a last minute decision the free version has 128 waves too simply to retain patchcompability to the Pro version. And, yes, most important: The free version has a censored GUI in this case.
Pricing and Availability:
AlioNoctis Pro is available in an introductionary offer until April, 15th '09 for 29 Euro
