Audiaire describes Zone as an advanced parameter sequencer synth, where each parameter has its own unique automation lane, running at its own independent rate. Zone includes FM, Exponential FM synthesis and a variety of osc mod modes, 150+ single cycle waveforms, 20 insert FX types, 400+ presets, multiple filter types and much more.
A spokesperson had this to say,
"Zone is a unique software synthesiser that encourages complex sound design in a musical way, showcasing the beautiful idiosyncrasies seldom seen in digital instruments. At the heart of Zone is a powerful parameter sequencer that allows virtually every control to be assigned to and modified by its own independent sequencer lane, with unlimited lanes, each running at their own unique rate and number of steps.
Zone can be played in three distinct modes: As a feature rich synth with a host of filters, 151 wavetable oscillators with user import, 20 insert FX, powerful mod matrix and much more. With a 32 step note sequencer - allowing pitch, velocity, gate, probability and +/- swing at a variety of rates. Or with infinite note and parameter sequencer lanes, with complex tools and presets for modifying lane behaviour. The sound generation possibilities are virtually limitless."
