It has a tone and richness that sets it apart from the vast majority of soft synths on the market today. Waveforms can be created via free-hand drawing, segments, a dedicated partial editor or by entering formulas. Everything you need to tweak existing presets and create your own is immediately available. A true gem in an overcrowded sea of sub-par soft synths. Heavenly 17 Dune 2's filter has a Drive control and a choice of 17 types, including numerous high-pass, low- pass and band-pass variants, as well as 14 subsequent filter 'effects' for further processing - notches, combs, distortion, etc. It's important to note that Dune 2 is not backwards compatible with Dune 1 presets. Sometimes publishers take a little while to make this information available, so please check back in a few days to see if it has been updated.
All of the knobs are clearly labeled and large enough to tweak without having to page through tabs of options like other synths. If you have any change log info you can share with us, we'd love to hear from you! Are these impressive figures actually meaningful in real-world usage? It can certainly roar and growl when that's what you want, but the general vibe is expensive-sounding and glossy. Furthermore, new features like the Random mode or programmable Arp Hold make the arpeggiator more powerful than ever before! I can do almost anything! As well as its extensive feature set, it also boasts impeccable sound quality and unbelievably low host system resource usage. The revised filter section in Dune 3 now sports a dual multimode filter plus an insert effect. It sits effortlessly into any of my mixes and this in itself is one of the best qualities of Dune.
You can tell that it's digital, even though it confidently exudes many of the qualities of vintage analogue hardware synths. These are all exceptionally high quality for built-in effects - especially the reverb - and can be ordered however you please. Dune 2 is definitely one of those all-rounders that can deliver most of the sounds you're ever likely to want from a synth, from lush pads to thick basses and soaring leads. Perhaps this unique character is partly down to the complex stereo decorrelation brought about by all that oscillator stacking and unison layering. This was carried out to allow for an even wider range of audio features and also to provide better sound quality. I just felt I had to pop down in words how blown-away I was with this little beauty. Another interesting wavetable consists of 22 transient waveforms, seemingly sampled from a variety of live instruments, and including drum and percussion sounds as well as piano, bass and flute.
Oscillator 3 is rather more limited than 1 and 2, having evolved from the original Dune sub oscillator, though now being freely tunable. If the original Dune was something of an under-rated gem, the remake is surely destined for modern classic status. . To put it simply, Dune sounds absolutely amazing. They sound exceptionally smooth and utterly convincing in terms of 'analogue' realism. Sunrizer is built upon a familiar subtractive synth design — but with a distinct character and a host of unique features.
My only gripe is that the graphics feel a tiny bit soft and could do with being a little sharper. It sounds fantastic and is already geared-up to be my goto synth for a variety of sounds including warm analogue basses and pads. Overall Dune is a fantastic experience. Sand storm Between its well-equipped oscillators and flexible zero-delay feedback filters, the overall sound of Dune 2 is distinctly clean and rich in character. This synth is just incredible! Dune looks great, sounds sublime and is a hell of a lot of fun to use. New filter types have been added as well, and include zero-delay feedback filters derived from our latest analog modeling technology. Expanding on v1's powerful per-voice modulation capabilities, Dune 2's eight unison layers can be spread via detune and pan controls as before, but can now be directly edited globally or individually each voice can be soloed , unlike the original where you had to program changes to the eight unison layers via the modulation matrix which you can still do too.
I love the large central display with the patch name centre stage. There's also a noise generator with adjustable stereo width and its own high- and low-pass filters, and a ring modulation option between oscillators 1 and 2. Head over to our and let us know. To reiterate: each of Dune 2's eight layers can be deployed 100% independently of the others, sort of like the two layers in LennarDigital's Sylenth1. . . .
