HYPERNOVA is our 'Top of the line' Kontakt synthesizer. Based on a well known polyphonic synthesizer from the late 90's that was capable of emulating Minimoog, Jupiter 8, Juno 106 and ARP 2600 sounds. The Hypernova Kontakt synth is no different. It can also emulate classic synthesizer sounds, making use of sampling technology instead of the virtual analog and subtractive technology the original synth used. Hypernova is a 3 oscillator synthesizer which uses 50 different sound sets per oscillator. The sounds were sampled without the filter, LFO and effects settings. All the sounds were recreated with the Kontakt's filters, LFO's and effects. Hypernova is therefore an ideal tool for sound designers and musicians who want to make their own sounds. THE CONTROLS PAGE contains the parameters to completely alter and edit the sound. The Hypernova synthesizer has a 3 oscillator architecture. All the parameters on the controls page are available for the 3 oscillators seperately. Four different waveforms can be selected for each oscillator: square, saw, noise and special. The special waveform is a choice between 50 different waveforms, selectable via a menu. Each oscillator has level, pan, tuning and modulation parameters. The global section contains the parameters that affects all three oscillators at once. On the the top left are the poly, solo, legato and offset settings with the possibility to change the note order in which the notes are played when set to solo, legato or offset: last, next, low and high. On the top right you can find the Portamento and Unisono parameters. The filter section contains 5 different filters of which 4 are ladder filters known for their Moog like character and the fifth filter is the well known Pro53 filter. Each filter has its own frequency and resonance setting, also accompanied with their modulation settings for velocity, modwheel, pressure and key track. The envelopes section contains three different envelopes for amp, filter and pitch each with their own presets. Last but not least there is a very extensive LFO section. Each oscillator has an LFO for pitch, filter, level and pan with a choice between four different waveforms: square, saw, tri (triangle) and s/h (sample and hold).
THE EFFECTS PAGE contains 7 different effects. A convolution reverb with a choice between 7 different spaces:chamber, room, hall, church, plate, spring and gate. Other effects are delay, chorus, flanger, phaser, distortion and a 3-band equalizer, each with their own effect presets.
THE ARP & MODS PAGE exists out of a 64 step arpeggiator with a random arp generator. Beneath the arpeggiator there's a small mod section where you can change the bend range, the pitch LFO and level LFO sensitivity for the modwheel and pressure for the three oscillators.
