Computer Music are giving away an amazing and exclusive synth plugin with issue 227: Enkl CM, created by Swedish software magicians Klevgränd.
Based upon the full Enkl (read the review here) - but sporting one oscillator and a single LFO, rather than two of each - Enkl CM is a virtual synth capable of a huge range of tones and textures, from chest-pounding sub bass, silky lead lines and futuristic arpeggios, to versatile percussion, psychedelic FX and everything in between.
Enkl CM's oscillator can be switched between triangle, saw, square and noise shapes, shaped with an ADSR envelope, and either amplitude- or frequency-modulated via an envelope and an LFO. Resonant low-pass and high-pass filters are onboard for sculpting the raw oscillator tone, while legato, arpeggiator and vibrato modes accommodate a range of playing styles. There's also a dedicated three-band EQ, plus stereo delay and width effects to customise the synth's overall timbre and stereo imaging.
Features and uses:
- Monophonic, single-oscillator synth reminiscent of classic hardware monosynths
- Oscillator can be switched between triangle, saw, square and noise waveforms
