Living in the digital world but want to maximize your analog potential? Well today we’re giving away the DCAM: Synth Squad by FXpansion ($249 MSRP). This synth pack contains 3 analog-modeling synths (Strobe, Amber, Cypher) and a modern sound design environment (Fusor). These virtual instruments are modelled after classic vintage synths and FXpansion didn’t spare any details when it came to reconstructing the warmth and grittiness analog circuits!
This contest is only for 48 hours, so make sure to read the rules below…..
DCAM: Synth Squad Overview
DCAM: Synth Squad finally delivers the satisfaction of playing real analogue instruments in software! Advanced modelling technology carefully reconstructs the soul of dusty vintage circuits within your computer, for the unmatched vibe of hardware at a fraction of the cost.
At the heart of DCAM: Synth Squad are 3 modelled synthesizers – Strobe, Amber and Cypher – bulging with the immense weight and power of old-school analogue. These are no mere emulations stunted by the limitations of the past. Instead, they combine the best features from legendary machines with new and exciting ideas to drag them kicking and screaming into the modern world.
Oscillators ooze immense sound pressure, amp stages can be overloaded for extra grit, and real-world chaos can be dialled into the circuit for delicious instability. These synths don’t break with extreme settings, so you can abuse them just like the real thing. Meanwhile, the intuitive TransMod modulation system brings your sounds to life in new and expressive ways.
