Synapse Orion Platinum Audio Software (Windows)
Orion provides you with everything you need to make music with your computer: a versatile sequencer, a powerful mixing desk, an assortment of analog-modelling and digital synthesizers, drum machines and effects. Orion Platinum is the premium edition of Orion, with exclusive features, including the wave-morphing, multisample player Ultran and several high quality Effects. The CD-ROM also includes a 600 MB library of more than 700 royalty-free presets and high quality multisamples. MIDI Out lets you use the sequencer to compose with external gear.
Using the enhanced four-bus Mixer and Master Section, you can build advanced mixes in no-time, and the MultiFX control lets you create complex effect routing. High resolution post-production is made possible by the enhanced WAV exporter, which supports up to 32-bit / 96 kHz resolution and can render instruments or channels to multiple WAV files.
Orion Platinum comes with a selection of 27 internal effects - including reverb, delay and chorus effects, a full parametric equalizer, and more. Additionally, there is full support for third-party VST and DirectX effects, as well as for third-party VSTi and DXi instruments.
Vintage pattern-sequencing features, such as step-sequencing, are preserved as optional extras, and combined with a high-precision piano roll sequencer - which provides plenty of editing functions, unlimited undo/redo, parameter automation and individual note velocity editing.
Using the playlist, you can easily arrange your patterns from individualgenerators into a complete piece of music. The playlist provides support for audio tracks, via a special generator for synchronized playback of pre-recorded WAV files, such as vocals or live instrumental recordings. Rather than having it's own interface like other generators, the Audio Track Generator integrates with the playlist, making it a simple task to add audio clips to your arrangement. You can choose between several types of Microtuning tables, which will be applied to all of Orion's internal generators. In addition to common western world tuning (equal temperament) four other tuning systems are available.
Makes it possible to cut up and rearrange sampled drum loops and grooves, from mono or stereo WAV files. The Groove Slicer is fully automated - after adjusting a few simple parameters, it can automatically detect all the slices in a loop, and optionally reconstruct the original loop in a pattern. On most loops, automatic slicing is highly efficient, but of course you can also manually edit the slice points after the automatic slicer has done the basic work. Reconstruction of loops is a powerful feature in combination with another one of Orion's features: Groove Templates. By applying a Groove Template to your reconstructed loop in the sequencer, you can effectively apply a "feeling" to it: shuffle, groove, jazz swing, salsa etc. Volume, panning and pitch of each individual slice can be adjusted, and you can of course use all of the other features from the Sampler, such as filtering, envelopes, velocity response etc.
