Inspired by legendary subtractive synthesizers, the MX4 virtual synthesizer plug-in from MOTU combines several core synthesis techniques in a unified, hybrid synthesis engine that delivers modern and vintage sounds alike. The software contains many banks and hundreds of presets, including fat basses, nasty leads, analog pads, vintage Electronica, all conveniently saved with the host application projects for instant recall.

Creating or tweaking sounds is fast and easy with clearly presented controls in a single window. But the software is also capable of being programmed with a depth and sophistication true synthesizer programmers will appreciate. Using 32-bit sound quality, unlimited voices and unlimited polyphony (as much as the host computer allows,) the MX4's flexible programming and advanced modulation architecture provides the intimacy of a vintage synthesizer, the flexibility of a modular synthesizer and the innovation of a virtual synthesizer.

Multi-Architecture Synthesis Engine Plug-In
Wavetable, frequency modulation (FM), amplitude modulation (AM) and analog emulation
Unlimited voices, polyphony and instantiations (as many as the host computer allows)
Sample-accurate playback (with host applications that support this OS X feature)
Plug-in Convenience
All settings are saved with host software projects for instant recall
Modulatable Effects
Built-in chorus and delay effects are integrated into MX4's modulation architecture and are saved as part of the patch
Three Wavetable Oscillators
Can access dozens of pre-programmed wavetables or the user can create their own
Audio Input
External audio signal can be processed with the MX4's flexible synthesis engine in real time
Oscillator Sync
Creates hard sync effects, just like the legendary Sequential Circuits Prophet Five and other classic synths
Frequency Modulation (FM)
Oscillator 3 serves as an FM source for oscillator 1, oscillator 2 and the filters
Two Resonant Multimode Filters
Low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and notch filters with 4 slope settings for a total of 16 different filter types. Both filters can be stacked to provide a slope of 48dB per octave
Variable Filter Topology
14 different filter and distortion configurations that can produce over 3,000 different filter topologies
LFOs
Six variable waveshape LFOs - each includes adjustable symmetry, rate delay, fade and phase
Envelopes
Four DADSHR envelopes with time segments adjustable from 0 to 20 seconds
Modulation Sources
All continuously variable parameters, including LFOs and envelopes, can be modulated by many sources, including track automation, MIDI controllers, LFOs and envelopes
