Latest creation brings the versatility of a semi-modular interface to the world of analog-modelling synthesis. Built around a flexible virtual patchbay, Pallas gives users immense control over a wide range of bold and unique sounds. Pallas is a Max for Live device that has been specifically designed to model all the grit, character, and charm of authentic analog sounds. Featuring eight-voice polyphony, Pallas is powered by three versatile oscillators. The device’s main two oscillators allow users to mix up to four waveforms (sine, triangle, square, and sawtooth, and an additional noise generator), while the third oscillator is a wavetable-based signal generator that can also be used as an additional LFO for modulation purposes.
Pallas uses the same modulation framework as Bengal (Max for Cats’ powerful semi-modular FM synthesizer) and provides many opportunities for users to sculpt their sounds: extensive envelope settings, two multimode resonant filters (with drive and morph functionality), two LFOs (one with morphable saw-triangle waves, pulse width, and phase retrigger), a ring modulator, and six native audio effects including delay, distortion, reverb, wavefold, frequency shift, and chorus. In addition, Pallas also includes a flexible eight-step sequencer that can be used as a signal modulator.
