Concept is designed to inspire you – a soft-synth that lets you push and bend the boundaries of modulation and designing your own synth patches with a unique and creative workflow. 

Take creative control of your sound, and employ Concept’s flexible synth engine and onboard effects to create anything from traditional synth sounds to more complex evolving textures. Explore the sonic possibilities of designing your own custom presets, and dive deep into modulation through a fast drag-and-drop workflow.

Simple Concept

Simple Concept is a ‘smart soft-synth’, giving you an ideal introduction to the Krotos approach to synthesis with its immediate workflow. It uses Concept’s synth engine, accessed from 3 powerful macro controls through a compact interface.

Simple Concept is interactive and easy to use, and lets you dial-in your sound quickly to  perform a range of basses, melodic leads, keys, pads, and FX very quickly using a range of 80 inspirational presets.

Concept Artist Showcase: Building a Complete Track with Alessandro Mastroianni 

There’s a lot to discover with Concept – feeding audio from your DAW to control synth settings, performing movements with XY Capture to experimenting with randomisation with the Tweak It function.

Krotos have enlisted the help of Composer, Musician & Sound Designer Alessandro Mastroianni (Prodigal, Gone Nine Months, Travestía, 65North) to demonstrate just how much is possible with this powerful plugin, and how he uses it in his own tracks.

Tune in to the video and watch how Alessandro builds a complete track from start to finish, taking you through his creative process and experimental approach.
