ZeroBox is a new modelled bassline synth which is on sale at an intro price of $49 for a limited time, increasing to $99 after the promotion.
ZeroBox is an accurate analogue modeling simulation of a legendary, iconic, sequencer-driven bassline synthesizer that defined an era.
In addition to a meticulous replica of both the signal path and the physics of each of the electronic components found inside the original device (oscillator, filters, envelopes, etc.), an extended set of features, improvements and circuit-bents have been added, bringing the whole synthesis engine a step ahead.
Last but not least, a redesigned sequencer front-end and the inclusion of a full set of modulation, analogue saturation and multi-type distortion effects units make ZeroBox an expressive, powerful, self-contained tool for use in any electronic music scenario.
- Physical modeling simulation of real analogue hardware, achieved by the adoption of the Advanced Component Simulation (ACS) approach – oscillators, filters, envelopes (,…) are built preserving their original architecture, featuring all the micro-instabilities and imperfections of the analogue technology
- Full 64-bit processing accuracy for every single aspect of the simulation
- An all-in-one complete setup : monophonic analogue bassline synthesizer + embedded analogue sequencer + analogue and digital insert/master effects
- Full preservation of all quirks found on the original device :
- The legendary gimmick circuit and its signal paths
- The analogue filter limited self-oscillation
- The peculiar behaviour of the accent and slide functions
- The internal signal polarity inversion
- An aliasing-free analogue modeled oscillator proving the same capacitors’ charging/discharging responses as found on the original analogue circuits, featuring sawtooth and square waveforms with blending (morphing) control
- A separate control for the oscillator waveshaping (from naive to analogue supersaw / pulse width modulation)
- A legendary 4-pole resonant, analogue low pass diode ladder filter (modeled by the adoption of the topology-preserving transform / zero-delay feedback approach) proving all the original quirks, non-linearities, frequency responses (also at extreme modulation scenarios), analogue clipping
- Two analogue envelope generators (MEG / VEG) proving the same capacitors’ charging/discharging responses as found on the original analogue circuits
- Analogue components age selector. Choose the virtual age of the components used inside ZeroBox and, as a consequence, its resulting overall instability
- An extended operative range (compared to the original) for several knobs and internal components
- Built-in circuit-bents as found in different hardware clones and also never seen before, experimental ones (while 100% preserving all the original functions)
- An exclusive low-frequency-oscillator (LFO) with frequency (from 0.05 Hz up to 20 Hz) and destination amount controls, affecting the oscillator waveform blending, waveshaping and filter cutoff frequency
- Adjustable highpass filter cutoff frequency
- Adjustable filter envelope (MEG) minimum decay time
- Adjustable slide time control
- A VCA envelope (VEG) smoother control
- Polarity inverter control, useful to achieve different sound flavours when using an asymmetric (biased) distortion unit
- ….plus more
ZeroBox is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3 and AU).
