Audio Damage AD051 Continua V1.0.19 MacOSX RETAiL
SYNTHiC4TE | 28 MB
Continua is a virtual analog synth with a twist: a continuously morphable threesome of oscillators. With three interconnected controls defining the wave shape, Continua has a virtually limitless supply of waveforms, especially when you add cross modulation and noise in to the mix.
An immediately intuitive three-oscillator analogue-style synth with two filters, up to 16 unison voices, copious polyphonic modulation sources and three onboard effects, Continua puts highly controllable waveform morphing at the centre of its architecture and workflow. Bringing the deft harmonic shifts of wavetable synthesis to mind, Continua's oscillators sweep seamlessly from outputting sine through square to saw waves; each of the four LFOs transitions from a double sine to square, via triangle waveshapes; and the dual independent filters morph continuously through low-pass, band-pass, high-pass and notch responses. Skew and Warp controls enable further manipulation of oscillator and LFO waveforms, and all morphing controls can be modulated for pads and textures that constantly evolve right at the oscillator/filter level.
There isn't a single knob in Continua that can't be modulated, from those controlling the oscillators, filters and effects to the parameters of the modulators themselves. Four LFOs, two ADSR and two multi-stage envelope generators, a Sample & Hold generator, two XY pads and eight macros are freely and effortlessly assignable by right-clicking any target control. And with every LFO and envelope being fully polyphonic, the expressiveness of your performances needs know no bounds, especially when using an MPE-compatible controller.
Like the oscillators and filters, Continua's three effects are tilted towards the production of sustained, ambient-orientated sounds. The Reverb is particularly notable, housing a custom algorithm geared up for very long, dense, heavily modulated tails; while the Chorus and Delay modules bring voice-stacked thickening and evocative spatialisation.
CHANGES IN V1.0.17 / 1.0.19
>> Just read the last changelog, and apply it to this one. Literally the exact same thing. However, we have since found out the source of the difficulty, and it will not happen again. We promise. Hopefully. Believe us when we say we’re as sick of this nonsense as you are, and apologize greatly for the inconvenience.
CHANGES IN V1.0.17/1.0.18
>> No changes whatsoever to the Windows and Linux installers. The macOS installer has been rebuilt due to YET ANOTHER signing snafu courtesy of Apple. If you are a Mac user and have been experiencing a problem with Continua in the last couple days, this will fix it. All others don't need to bother updating.
