Additive synthesiser, featuring resynthesis and sound morphing abilities.

The CA5000 blurs the boundaries between sampling and synthesis in unprecedented ways.

Want a bass sound with the tone of an acoustic, but the punch of an electric? Simply import samples of both, and click in the "morphing square" to create your own hybrids. Imagine a patch with the harmonics of a human voice, and the percussive attack of an acoustic piano. Imagine real-time morphing between a vibraphone and a choir, or a flute and a guitar. With the CA5000, anything is possible.

Camel Audio's new Sonic Blueprint analysis algorithms and Hybrid Synthesis sound warping technology (patents applied for) are the results of several years' painstaking research in the field of digital signal processing.

The CA5000 blurs the boundaries between sampling and synthesis in unprecedented ways.

Want a bass sound with the tone of an acoustic, but the punch of an electric? Simply import samples of both, and click in the "morphing square" to create your own hybrids. Imagine a patch with the harmonics of a human voice, and the percussive attack of an acoustic piano. Imagine real-time morphing between a vibraphone and a choir, or a flute and a guitar. With the CA5000, anything is possible.

Camel Audio's new Sonic Blueprint analysis algorithms and Hybrid Synthesis sound warping technology (patents applied for) are the results of several years' painstaking research in the field of digital signal processing. Theory is put into practice with the CA5000: a unique musical instrument, notable both for its exceptional sound quality and intuitive user interface.

At its heart lies a powerful additive synthesiser, with freely detunable partials and a flexible 128 band noise generator. Any WAV format sampled sound can be imported and "blueprinted", its key characteristics instantly captured and made available for use in the CA5000's synthesis engine.

Advanced data reduction techniques allow the complex description of real acoustic sounds to be reduced to a relatively small number of parameters, for easier real-time manipulation. The synthesiser offers both velocity and keyboard scaling, allowing you to add heightened expressive "realism" to even your most outlandish creations.

The CA5000 comes with a comprehensive library of both acoustic and electronic sounds, organised into categories including bass, pads and strings, among others. These sounds can be browsed, by sound or by category, from the CA5000's easy-to-use interface.

The CA5000 will be available from October in PC VST, Mac OSX VST and AU formats.

    Amazing. Unlike any other. Take any WAV or AIFF and have the CA5000 make it's "Sonic Blueprint", turning it into a synth. Morphing between four at once in real time makes it even better. Very powerfull, organic, and liquid.

    Wonderful. It indicates the way to follow. Impressive with the electric guitars. Exciting and organic. He is alive!
