Unique

Synth by Sugar Bytes

The Name Says It All!

Unique specializes in state-of-the-art vowel sounds and mighty, mighty analogue sounds from the Golden Age of synthesizers. Her assertive sound should not be missing in any VST folder.

Dual-Oscillator with 5 Waveforms

You Won't run out of Classic Analogue Sounds Anytime Soon

Unique is a well-crafted emulation of synthesisers from the golden age of analogue keyboard sounds. Some of the strings and piano sounds will bring back fond memories, while there's plenty of depth and power to the basses.

Sound and functionality have been designed together with musicians to cover a wide range of sounds and ease of use. We took a close look at some old techniques to reinvent them for the current age. The user interface is simple but powerful.

And it's a pretty versatile instrument. Once you’ve built your sound, there’s tons of sound polish in a juicy filter section and two chained multi effect units.

Those Wicked Formant Filters!

Activate Vowel Mode

The sound of Unique springs to life when it hits the filter section. Needless to say, analogue high-pass, low-pass and band-pass varieties are in place, along with a comb filter. But standards aside, the actual intention behind this project, a Vowel Filter, also became its outstanding feature. The Vowel Filter allows you to string together two or four vowel formants and play them back in a multitude of ways.

The internal controller section will bring in some much-needed dynamics. There's a recordable XY field, a sequencer and it's all very easy to manage with just a right-click on any control. User feedback range from "the Controllers section rocks!" to "the Controllers section just blows me away!"

Earns the Right to Carry its Name

It's not a Software, it's a Mindset!

Thanks to the unusual architecture, Unique always remained special down to the present day. The duo-phonic arpeggiator, polyphonic auto-panning per oscillator and the complex filter have what it takes to let your mix shine.

The modulators can be triggered in many different and “unique” ways: for example with the lowest note played, the first note played or even with the sequencer clock or the arpeggiator.

Yet another stunning feature: The internal LFOs have fade algorithms for rate and intensity; and we implemented a proper polyphonic portamento, too.

Update to Version 1.5

Free for Users: new GUI and NKS

The update sets new accents in visual language, concept and user experience. With its minimal flat design, version 1.5 departs from the somewhat stale skeuomorphism and pays homage to the classics of German industrial design. Adjust any control and the new GUI will come up with the respective values and scales! We find the new design very apropos and like working with it. Chapeau & Thanks to Max Mondon Design.

Native’s Kontrol Standard (NKS) is quickly spreading in the industry and we also think that it’s a good move towards integration for all the friends of NI’s great tools out there. We added NKS support to Unique, providing perfect integration with Maschine and Komplete Kontrol (->NKS).
