ALTERED FM SYNTHESIZEr
A Full-Spectrum Sound Experience with a native plug-in on Mac
opsix is a digital synth unlike any other, with sounds to match. Instantly explore hundreds of fresh, cutting-edge sounds to inspire your next musical project! Go even further with the power of customization right at your fingertips.
The operator mixer, which dramatically changes the characteristics of the sound, and the flexible sound engine that goes far beyond the realm of FM instruments, as symbolized by the word “Altered,” are retained, as is the software’s unique ability to provide a bird’s eye view of all parameters. The user interface further expands the potential of this synthesizer.
Owners of the hardware opsix are eligible for a crossgrade of opsix native, at a significant discount. Use opsix Sound Librarian v1.0.1 or later to generate a coupon code for the crossgrade, tied to the opsix hardware’s unique ID.
Unique user interface let you dive into the deep synth engine
opsix native has the exact same sound engine as opsix. However, the user interface has been re-designed to retain the concept but with a unique UI, including the iconic opsix operator-mixer, so that even those who have never used opsix before can understand the concept. The UI in motion, including the scope of the operator outputs, is both fun and helps the user understand how the sound is actually modulated.
Six in One Synthesis
The core of opsix is nothing short of exponential. Since waveforms can be arranged and modulated in nearly infinite ways, opsix can easily do the sonic work that is similar to numerous types of synthesis:
Removing parts of the sound to get the sound you want; the most widely-used synthesis. opsix uses up to six envelopes and multi-modeled filters to achieve many cutting-edge and classic tones.
Rerouting signal paths to change the sound. A spin through the Algorithms section will dramatically reshape the base sound by changing how the six mixer parts work together, and no patch cables are needed.
Analog-style controls and plenty of stackable waveforms take you from digital to analog-sounding in no time. Enjoy deep basses, crisp leads, thick pad sounds, fuzzy brass tones, and so much more.
Adding intentional distortion to the waveforms to achieve aggressive overtones that are either harmonic or inharmonic. This will help you achieve gritty, bitey tones dripping with character.
Stacking waveforms and blending their harmonics is key to an expansive range of harmonious, dissonant, and tension-driven sounds. With six operators available, the complete FM experience is possible, including the ability to go back in time for classic sounds you have heard throughout recording history.
Last but certainly not least, opsix’s highly flexible and powerful architecture starts with true six-Operator FM. As a result, it easily delivers signature sounds you have surely heard on thousands of hits from the ‘80s on through today, and with far more polyphony than other standalone FM synths available today.
With all of these ways to realize and explore sounds, opsix is uniquely suited as a “future-modern-classic” synth!
What started as a legacy synthesis has evolved into something completely different. opsix is FM-based, but the similarities to the classic synthesis end there. The Altered FM architecture delivers sounds across a vast spectrum, far wider than any single synthesis has been able to cover before, thanks to new sound components; new waveforms, filters, shaping, effects, LFOs, envelopes, modulations, and more, all translating to its broad assortment of sounds.
Patch exchange between opsix and opsix native
Sounds created with opsix or opsix native can be used in common with each other, transcending hardware and software boundaries and allowing the sounds to be enjoyed in a variety of environments.
Sound exchange is done via the opsix Sound Librarian. For detailed instructions on how to use the opsix Sound Librarian, please refer to the user’s manual that comes with the opsix Sound Librarian
