MX4 features a unique, hybrid synthesis engine that combines several forms of synthesis, including subtractive, wavetable, FM, AM and analogue emulation. MX4's flexible programming and advanced modulation architecture provide the intimacy of a vintage synth, the flexibility of a modular synth, and the innovation of a virtual synth.
MX4's basic synthesis architecture provides:
3 oscillators with modulatable waveform symmetry and hard sync.
Each of the three oscillators can use a wavetable instead of a standard waveform (Loads supplied).
Oscillators 1 and 2 can be synced together.
Oscillator 3 serves as a frequency modulation (FM) source for other oscillators - or the filter cutoff frequency.
Because oscillator 3 includes all waveforms, as well as the wavetable and symmetry features found on the other oscillators, it can produce a wide array of modulation effects that extend from LFO rates into the audible range.
In addition to the three oscillators, an independent fundamental-tone oscillator and ring modulator are also included to further extend the oscillator section.
2 variable topology multimode filters.
Two resonant multimode filters (with modulatable overdrive) provide low-pass, high pass, band-pass and notch filters with independent slope specified as 6, 12, 18 or 24dB per octave for a total of 16 different filter types.
Both filters can also be stacked, combining them for a total of 48dB per octave.
MX4's unique Variable Filter Topology allows users to easily and intuitively arrange the two filters and overdrive in 14 different configurations that produce over 3,000 different filter topologies.
4 variable wave shape LFOs with adjustable symmetry, rate delay, fade and phase.
4 ADSHR envelopes.
All continuously variable parameters, including LFO's and envelopes, can be modulated by many sources, including track automation, MIDI controllers, LFO's & envelopes. They can even be modulated by multiple sources simultaneously.
Conversely, each modulation source in MX4 can modulate an unlimited number of destinations simultaneously, with the modulation range independently scaled at each destination.
