KV331’s Synthmaster One gets an update to v1.3, and introduces a host of new features. The wavetable synth gets a new white skin, new factory presets, scales and envelope types and also includes cross-platform cloud data sync.
Synthmaster One v1.3’s 200 new presets have been designed by Brian Transeau, Kurt Ader and Luke Neptune. This puts the total number of presets up to 1250. Also new is a scale library which ranges from 5 tone equal tempered to 12 tone alternate-tuning scales. Microtuning also gets an improvement, with users able to set the keyboard mapping of a scale to either “fill octave” or “consecutive”.
One of the bigger features that has been added is the integration of cloud data sync. Users can synchronise any Synthmaster One related data across multiple machines and platforms, and share their data with other Synthmaster One users. Synthmaster One data can include presets, waveforms, samples, favourites, and MIDI programs. When creating a preset, users can now create custom attributes or styles for more efficient organisation.
Also new is a set of new envelope types, which are Digital, Profat and Oobee. Digtial is the Synthmaster’s default algorithm, whereas Profat and Oobee are new algorithms modelled after well-known synths from Sequential Circuits and Oberheim. Among a few other features, KV331 also addressed and resolved a few bugs in the synth.
Synthmaster One is available from Synthmaster.com for $79.
