Gospel Musicians has released the Pure Sine synthesizer for MachFive 3 and the free UVI Workstation plug-in. Capitalizing on UVI/MachFive’s built in wavetable and analog synthesis, Pure Sine focuses on bringing pure sines, pulses, saws, square, and triangle waves used in today’s modern hip-hop, R&B, trance, dub-step, and urban genres.
Pure Sine’s interface focuses on the most important synthesis controls in order to quickly program leads, basses, kicks, 808 percussion, pads, effects, blips and a new urban stacked sine pad used in live gigs and on many pop albums. The only samples used for the sound creation are the EP’s and strings to produce the sine pad, but the rest of the waveforms are produced using MachFive’s extensive wavetable and analog synthesis algorithms.
Pure Sine takes advantage of UVI’s advanced scripting engine to provide an extensive GUI and built-in scripts to take advantage of the classic analog sounding legato, portamento, and glide functions needed to produce the classic slide/glide sound for synth basses and leads that do not re-trigger if played in a legato fashion.￼
