Nice to see Chris Calcutt at the show and he was ready to show us the new OS for Peak and Summit which brings several new features for their Polysynths.
New spread modes, panning per voice, and panning in the mod matrix give additional control and allows for sound design in the stereo field. Now you can create bigger, wider, and more intricately textured soundscapes.
Modulation and unpredictability
Create deeper and more experimental sounds with new mod destinations, noise as a mod source, and additional LFO 3 and 4 parameters. Animate Envelopes and Arpeggiator Chance open more creative performance possibilities.
New effects, including Chorus Modes, Flanger, and Phlanger add new tonalities. Additional effects modulation destinations open up more experimental sound design. A new Lo-Fi delay mode enables a more vintage style sound.
The firmware update v2.0 includes a number of bug fixes. The full details can be found in the release notes.
The Firmware can be installed via the Components utility.
