Curve is a wavetable synthesizer.
Curve sports an inviting waveform editor. It has interesting tools that you can use for experimentation and detailed tweaking. It also comes with three powerful oscillators, three envelope generators, two filters and four LFOs. You can blend these components together in a modulations matrix, which is easily accessible via the user interface.
Curve also has a wide range of presets available online, you can also use presets that others uploaded. If you found a great sounding preset that you want to share, you can also do it via Curve's community website.
- Draw your own wavetables.
- Three oscillators (each of them can be set to one of four user-wavetables, sine, saw, pulse, triangle or noise).
- Two synced and two unsynced LFOs. You can set an LFO to 0.1 Hz or you can set it to several kHz. You can even set the LFO frequency to the frequency of the note you are currently playing.
- Volume envelopes, filter envelopes; in fact its envelopes can be used to modulate many parameters.
- 6/12/24dB-filters with cutoff and resonance.
- Drawable modulation matrixes. Use an LFO to modulate the pitch and you get FM, use an AHDSR-Envelope to modulate the filter cutoff and you get a nice filter envelope.
- Play up to 128 notes at one time.
- Automate all parameters (except for the user-wavetable and modulation matrixes) in your sequencer.
- Can render bandlimited, aliasing-free sounds. But you can also turn on aliasing to produce vintage digital sounds.
- Shows spectrographs of the wavetables you draw.
- Snapshots for faster editing.
New in v2.1
- Bug fix for Curve's aliasing mode plus some minor other fixes.
- Better syncing of Curve's presets with the online preset library
- Faster loading
- Private presets are backed up online.
New in v2.0.6
- Bugfix for bug with hanging notes in legato and mono modes.
New in v2.0.4
- Bugfix for Curve which could result in wrong sounds when switching presets while holding modwheel or aftertouch.
New in v2.0.3
- Bugfix for crash when using Cubase and other hosts
New in v2.0.2
- New Profile images
- Various bugfixes for routing velocity
New in v2 beta14
- Bugfix for crash with small sustain values
- Bugfix for unison panning
- Bugfix for negative pitchbend values
- Bugfix for modwheel and aftertouch (beta13)
New in v2 beta12
- Revised modulation mode
- Improved modwheel and aftertouch assignments
New in v2 beta9
- New assignable Macro knobs
- New Fatness Macro
- Better preset history feature
New in v2 beta7
- Flexible filter routing
- Parallel filters
- Routing the oscillators to individual filters.
- Removed filter zipper noise and volume noise which could occur while editing a sound
New in v2 beta3
- LFO amount can be modulated now.
- Memory usage reduced from 170 MB per instance to around 30 MB.
- Velocity mapping changed slightly.
- Bugfix for OSC crash
New in Curve 1.4.5
- Bugfix for Curve's Glide mode where in some cases the target note becomes a semitone higher than how it was played.
New in v1.4.3
- RTAS compatible
- Supports Pro Tools 8 and higher
New in v1.4
- Feature-rich mono mode
New in v1.3
- Now has 40 wavepoints for drawing waveforms. More weirdness, more control for wobbles, for arpeggios in etc.
- One-shot LFOs, particularly good for drums. In case you use a one-shot LFO, you can draw in the precise envelope you prefer.
- LFO 1+2 can now be optionally synced to the host position, instead of being retriggered.
New in v0.5b
- Curve could produce strange noises when running on multi-core CPUs. This is fixed now.
