Pretty interesting new FM Synthesizer for Ableton 9 and Max for Live. It’s a very complex FM Synthesizer with some very good features. The GUI design is excellent. Most of the Max for Live Synthesizer development comes not with the best GUI design but this one looks very stylish and intuitive to use.
I recommend this new Synthesizer to musicians which want to simply their setup with Ableton ready products. They work very solid and are build to work perfectly with Ableton.
Combining the textural intricacy of FM with the freeform approach of a modular system, Bengal is a sound designer’s dream with its four operators, eight voices of polyphony, six audio effects and a flexible modulation architecture centred on an interactive virtual patchbay.
- 4 Operators: Each Operator can synthesize waveformd by up to 20 partials or by wavetables: either numerous built-in waves or user wavetables via drag’n drop.
- 6 Algorithms: Each Algorithm reorders the internal sound structure of Carriers and Modulators.
- 2 Multi-mode Filters: Filter 1: 5 Filter modes plus an optional Comb Filter. Also you can mix the unfiltered with the filtered signal and add Filter Drive to overdrive the filter for soft saturation. Filter 2: filter morph. The filters can be routed in parallel or in series.
- 2 LFO’s: with tri-saw morph, retrigger, rate modulation and more.
- 6 Audio Effects: sound design as part of the instrument.
- Step Sequencer: for note input, modulation data or both.
- Modifier Effects: Mix, Scale, Clip etc. your signals.
- Patchpanel: over 50 out- and more than 60 input points.
