Overview

Four oscillators for hands-on control over the sound. Order today.

The SKULPT SE virtual-analog synthesizer offers two WAVE groups per voice with four oscillators each providing profound hands-on control over the sound and sweep smoothly between sine, triangle, saw, square, PWM and Noise sources. Additional oscillator modulation using FM, Ring Modulation or the hugely powerful onboard LFOs unveil an unmatched potential for sound customisation.The state-variable 2-pole filters morph from low pass through to band pass and through to high pass. With its resonance feature, it picks out rich harmonics at high resonance levels.

Three dedicated envelopes for the filter, amp and modulation give excessive control of the dynamics and expression. The available 2 LFOs, one global and one polyphonic can be synced to internal or external tempo.

The polyphonic LFO also syncs to a division of the played notes' fundamental frequency for both brutal and subtle sound modulation.

SKULPT SE supports MPE and offers musicians creative new musical ways to model sounds with your fingertips. Connect your MPE compatible MIDI controller and endeavour next-generation expressive sound articulations only possible with a real instrument like SKULPT SE.

SKULPT SE incorporates a deceptively capable real-time sequencer onboard. It is pretty easy to capture performances, quantize, loop & hold them, and capture four lanes of Animation on the fly— this alone introduces some crazy modulation possibilities and is key to getting to know this synthesizer. This, coupled with the adaptable onboard arpeggiator, chord and transpose functions, open an entire new world for complex and exciting synth sounds.

A built-in distortion (waveshaping overdrive) and delay effects add character and depth to the signal. The distortion delivers interesting overtone textures from subtitle to heavy overdrive. The delay effect injects expressive complexity from short slap-backs, and room-style reverb sounds to long overlaying or psychedelic echoes using the sequencer animation. To create chorusing and other time-based effects, the delay can be modulated. Internal or external sync generate rhythmic interaction with the tempo of a track.

SKULPT SE comes with a comprehensive set of connections to power and control the synth using USB, monitor with headphones or using the dedicated line output, sync with external gear thanks to its full size MIDI in and out or the 3.5 mm sync in or outputs. The Global Tune Setting ensures a perfect integration into mixed setups with other, less accommodating equipment in studio and live applications, like analogue synthesisers or DJ turntables, which tend to be less precise in tuning. Expanding the sound of SKULPTsynth SE is possible by poly chaining up to 4 units for a total of 16 voices and 128 oscillators.
