Imaginando FRMS is a new 8-voice Synthesizer plugin & app for Android/iOS that combines granular and FM synthesis using a powerful layering system.
The latest development of Imaginado is based on three synthesis engines. Where DRC still uses classic virtual analog synthesis, FRMS uses subtractive, FM and granular. You rarely see FM & granular in combination, but they go well together. The synth has up to 4 simultaneous layers, each one either granular or oscillator. FRMS’ operation is well solved. You edit sounds per layer and thus you control all aspects of your layers very easily.
The granular engine can have up to 20 grains per layer and users can granulate samples via drag-&-drop but also live input. In the FM engine, the layers are converted into operators and offer 8 different modes. Each layer also has a filter, two envelope generators, and a modulation matrix. In the final, you have 4 LFO’s with 5 modes and delay & reverb as layer sent.
It is very nice to see that the Synthesizer is also available for Android devices that have a low-latency mode. FRMS comes with Imaginando’s Cloud Sync technology built-in across all versions with which you can save sounds and more.
