Puremagnetik Releases Arkinaut Synthesizer

Fictitious electroacoustic instrument employing modern synthesis techniques      15/07/21

Puremagnetik tells us that Arkinaut is a fictitious electroacoustic instrument, inspired by ancient sounds and materials (zither, wood stone, glass and crystal), while employing modern synthesis techniques. They say that it excels at producing timbres ranging from plucked and bowed strings to mallets and more. It was designed to create percussive and bowed articulations combined with idiophone transients and synthesizer modulations. Here's more details direct from Puremagnetik...

With an array of controls to set resonator type, transient characteristics, timbre tone and vibrational material, Arkinaut lets you sculpt a vibrating string instrument tailored to your taste. Choose from "Metal", "Wood" or "Elastic" resonators and use the "Mallet" to add struck bar transients such as those found in a vibraphone or marimba.

Arkinaut's internal workings employ Karplus-Strong algorithms fed into a soft overdrive. An optional ring modulator provides augmented and chaotic tone design that can create a wide palette of timbres. The final stage of the signal passes through a Moog-style low pass filter and a fixed delay "doubling" module that simulates string loosening.

Minimum Requirements
• OSX 10.8 or Windows 10 x64
• Audio Units or VST compatible audio host

Pricing and Availability:
Arkinaut is currently offered as part of Puremagnetik's Spark subscription for $9 per month. After one month it will become back-cataloged for a la carte purchase at $20 USD.
