ultraSPHERE shatters the boundaries of preset playback and goes way beyond that with limitless creative explorations. Never has it been easier to inject captivating motion into your sounds with the UltraEngine’s 10 independent modulators, allowing you to sculpt and automate a vast array of parameters. Inject life into your creations with animated tremolo, vibrato, and lush unison effects. Create dynamic textures with powerful filter modulation and filter envelope automation, or push the boundaries with FM synthesis. The fun doesn’t stop there; apply these same LFOs and modulator shapes to FX sends, creating constantly evolving effects that add depth and dimension to your soundscapes. Use the central customizable X/Y core mixer to morph between the sources, offering unparalleled creative control.
