Kinisis is a synthesiser with an unusual "Timeline" interface. The interface uses a Timeline, along the lines of using keyframes in animation software. Sounds are designed by moving to a point in the Timeline and then moving any of the knobs/controls to create a keyframe at that point. When you play a note, Kinisis 'animates' the controls. This is much more powerful than traditional ADSR envelopes, and also makes it easy to do relatively complex things.
- 4 parts or ‘voices’ per note for complex layered sounds.
- Each voice is a complete synthesiser engine with its own Timeline, oscillators, filter, modulation options and effects routing.
- Vector synthesis oscillators which mix between 4 waveforms
- 4-part unison.
- Noise oscillator can be mixed into the main waveform.
- Import waveforms from WAV files.
- Use the additive editor to change individual harmonics for ultimate control.
- Waveform editor allows you to draw in a waveform, great for experimenting.
- 12dB/octave resonant filter.
- Low pass, band pass and high pass modes.
- All parameters controllable by the Timeline for great filter effects.
- Per-note modulation matrix and LFOs. Each note plays its own modulation effects independently of other notes.
- All LFO parameters can be animated in the Timeline.
- Modulation amount in each slot of the modulation matrix can be animated over the course of a note using the Timeline.
- Delay, reverb, and distortion global send effects.
- Effects send amount is controllable for each note by the Timeline. Each note’s effect sends can be controlled over the course of the note.
- Global low-pass and high-pass filters for general shaping of your sound.
Real-time Performance Controls:
- 6 assignable X-Y pads with MIDI learn and host automation support.
- Time freeze: sweep through the Timeline with the mouse or MIDI controller to control which part of the Timeline is being played.
