Parameter Sequencer Synthesiser

At the heart of Zone is a powerful parameter sequencer that allows virtually every control to be assigned to and modified by its own independent sequencer lane, with unlimited lanes, each running at their own unique rate and number of steps.

Zone can be played in three distinct modes:

As a feature-rich synth with a host of filters, 151 wavetable oscillators with user import, 22 insert FX, powerful mod matrix and much more. With a 32 step note sequencer - allowing pitch, velocity, gate, probability and +/- swing at a variety of rates. Or with infinite note and parameter sequencer lanes, with complex tools and presets for modifying lane behaviour. The sound generation possibilities are virtually limitless.


Inventive Parameter Sequencer

  • Inventive Parameter Sequencer with unlimited lanes, each running at up to 27 different rates from 8/1 to 1/128th of host tempo. 100 global, unipolar and bipolar parameter sequencer lane presets.

150+ Waveforms with User Import

  • High-quality analogue modelled oscillators and unparalleled sound quality with ability to import single-cycle waveforms. 151 oscillator types sampled from over 50 uber-rare vintage synths with sub, noise and the ability to load/save unique single-cycle waveforms.

Extensive Insert FX and Filters

  • 23 insert FX types, including ring modulation, delay, stereo width enhancer, reverb, chorus, flanger, phaser, barber-pole phaser, compression, decimator and distortion. Multiple filter types (comb, notch, phaser, circuit-bent, 'acid') with up to 48db/octave roll-off.

Analogue Modelled Oscillator Modulation

  • Numerous oscillator modulation modes including exponential FM (as seen in Roland's Jupiter 8), Ring Modulation, Amplitude Modulation, Distortion Modulation and more. Extensive modulation matrix with 8 slots and numerous sources.

Over 500 Presets

  • 590 presets expertly crafted by some of the world's leading patch creators. Categorised by pads, arpeggios, leads, bass, drums, FX and synth.

Built with Sound Design in Mind

  • Chord, hold note and unison mode with up to 7 voice spread. Fully assignable macro controls for easy performance control. Clearly laid out, scalable GUI designed for ease-of-use with one-page editing. Create unique arpeggios and scales from sequence lane presets, shift steps and flip data in any direction.
