TAQS.IM tells us that their SOLO Virtual Instrument 1.1 update is here. A spokesperson said, "Our flagship cross-platform PC, Mac, AU, VST, AAX virtual synthesizer now includes Pro Tools AAX support, Phase Distortion oscillators, 200 re-voiced sounds, and much more."
Here's more detail in the company's own words...
The only synthesizer of its kind, SOLO includes virtual analog, phase distortion oscillators, authentic samples, high-quality filters, effects, modulation features, and a microtonal scale converter to create unique world-sonic textures.
Hybrid Synth Architecture
SOLO's hybrid 3 oscillator synth engine allows you to mix and match analog-style, phase distortion, and sample-playback oscillators. This provides you the ultimate sonic flexibility to blend synthetic sounds with our organic wave sample set. Then further sculpt your sound with the onboard Moog or Oberheim style -12db or -24db filter and loudness envelope.
Import Korg KMP, Soundfont & SFZ Sounds
If you more options, import your own custom Korg KMP, Soundfont, and SFZ samples into SOLO. This opens up a world of sonic options to play your custom samples through our oriental scale converter and synth engine.
Microtonal Makam Scales
Break free from the twelve-tone scale by dialing in world microtonal scales with an "oriental-style" scale converter. SOLO ships with a huge library of the most popular scales used throughout the middle-east and the world.
SOLO is a cross-platform virtual instrument and is supported both on PC and Mac in VST, AU, and AAX formats. This is the only plugin of its kind that can be used in Cubase, Logic, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, FL Studio, and more!
Modulate in the Matrix
The flexible modulation matrix allows you to use the 2 LFO's and other controllers to drive parameters throughout the synthesizer. Change the LFO type, rate, rate attack, depth, and depth attack to modulate the filter, oscillator, effects, and more!
Use the onboard studio-quality EQ, Distortion, Phaser, Delay, and Reverb to shape your sound. These effects are designed to be used aggressively as you hear in a lot of popular world music - so slap on some distortion and delay and get to it!
The update is available immediately and can be downloaded on the SOLO Product Page at the bottom. You can also try the instrument for free for 15 minutes.
