12 osc as opposed to 8.
12 filters as opposed o 8
Importing of samples.

Hello,

Discovery Pro Mac has been released.

Image
Discovery Pro Mac is a 12 oscillators Virtual Analog VSTi and Audio Units Synthesizer featuring 4 layers, WAV and SoundFont (SF2) support, 2X oversampling/undersampling, built-in arpeggiator, sync, FM, 12 filter types, panning modulation, stereo delay and gate effects, graphic envelope modulation. It also Imports Nord Lead 2 SysEx data.

Discovery Pro features

2 new oscillators that result in a even broader sonic palette. The new parabolic waveform will be bliss for beautiful pads, soft sounds and new FM tones. Pink noise brings that warm and lovely sound from classic synthesizers.

Waveform oscillator
Now you can easily add new waveforms and wavetables in DWB banks, WAV or SoundFont 2.04 (SF2) formats, the later supporting 24 bit waveforms. Since it's not virtual analog synthesis we took extreme care of it by adding one of the best interpolation algorythms, resulting in very little aliasing and extraordinary resampling quality.

12dB and 24dB Moog modeled filters called X and Y, bringing a more sophisticated tone in addition to the 8 previous Discovery filters.

Graphic Modulation envelopes that take your sound palette to high degree sound shaping. Just click and hold your mouse to draw time-synced mod destinations and get fresh textures.

A demo is already available to download at http://www.discodsp.com/discoverypro/

Thanks,
George.

Hello Slovenec, the main differences have been stated in my previous post, but I will sort a small list now
  • 12 oscillators (4 WAVE + 8 VA) instead 8 VA.
  • 64 Voices polyphony instead 32.
  • 4 new Moog modeled filters, 12 in total, instead 8.
  • WAVE Oscillator supports WAV, DWB, SoundFont 2 sample sets whereas Discovery is only VA.
  • Parabolic and Pink noise VA oscillators.
  • Graphic modulation envelopes.
  • WAVE OSC can get several LFO routings.
  • WAVE OSC can apply FM to VA OSC.
  • Dual Pitch Bend (Up and Down can be setup independently).
  • Soft filter mode will gets less brighter frequencies from all filters.
  • Parabolic ADSR Envelopes for Amplitude (more suitable for pads).
  • Dedicated Discovery Pro Preset Banks using the new features.

Discovery Pro is a really kick arse instrument.

I'll be very keen to import some samples and see what I can get out of this instrument.

Great stuff DiscoDSP and at a great price too. Perhaps some other plug in companies can take note. :)

Nice one George. I've already downloaded the update. Could you please sort out an easier way of accessing free updates for paid owners of your plug ins. I couldn't find any link to download the update and that's why I contacted you. Thanks for your quick response and great service and keep up the great work! :)

Yeah I log in to the members area but I can't find the proper update except for the downloads such as version 5 where it says to pay the 39 euros etc.

Whichever way, you sent me the correct link and I'm now properly up to date :)
