Hybrid synthesizer

Spectral is a very unique software synthesizer, in some aspects similar to additive as well as subtractive synthesizers. It features four unique 121 band filters, one for each 256 harmonics additive oscillator. It also has sophisticated cross-modulation possibilities which are good for FM and similar synthesis methods.

Moreover it has an enormous range of processing and modulation options including a pretty unique arpeggiator, as well as a versatile effects section.

Spectral comes with a selection of high quality presets in a wide range of styles, an easy-to-use interface, and of course this manual.

Specifications:
- Four Oscillator and Filter modules with powerful yet detailed harmonics and filter band editing and modification functions
- Extensive Oscillator and Filter audio rate...
