analog, FM, modeled, PCM, and speaker synths
Powerful, Expressive Control
Quadra is a creative workspace where you're free to layer sounds to create complex and evolving tones and sequences, or assign them to keyzones and perform them discretely. Play sounds directly or augment them in realtime with arpeggiators, phrase sequencers and effects to create rhythmic and melodic motifs. Morph between sounds with a mappable XY pad to create movement and narrative, and automate the overall intensity of your soundscape with global dynamics and transient emphasis controls.
Four Times the Fun
Each layer in Quadra is a fully-kitted instrument, complete with ADSR amp and multimode envelope control, unison, powerful 64-step arpeggiator/phrase sequencers, MIDI effects such as Euclidean Emphasis and Pitch Drift, realtime scale quantization, audio effects including a frequency shifter, waveshaper, chorus, phaser, and 3-band EQ, reverb and delay sends, and pre-mapped effects like vibrato, tremolo, a second frequency shifter, and overdrive, that you can perform instantly with the modwheel on your controller keyboard.
Supercharged Sequences with Advanced MIDI Effects
At the heart of each of Quadra's instrument layers is a powerful, multimode 64-step sequencer with MIDI effects, allowing you to quickly add rhythmic grooves, create arpeggiator sequences, add harmonies, and even quantize the incoming notes to specific scales. Choose a global rate, gate length, and max velocity, then customize your sequence with per-step velocity, link, harmonization, pitch offset, octave offset, gate, step repeat and panning. Save your patterns to disk as presets to share, or use the handy "copy-to" button to quickly duplicate your finished sequence from one layer to another.
Quadra includes a number of MIDI effect modules that allow you to embellish and augment your sequences in creative ways, including Euclidean Emphasis which adds rhythmic accents, MIDI Delay, Random, and Pitch Drift which enrich your sequence, and a scale quantizer that allows you to snap all notes to a scale of your choosing. You can even drag-and-drop the modified sequences as MIDI into a track of your DAW.
