Spitfire Audio, a renowned London company dedicated to sound libraries and professional audio software development, has partnered with American composer Brian Transeau, better known as BT, to create tools in the field of hybrid synthesis. BT Phobos is a synthesizer conceived as a result of this association. Both have developed a powerful device that generates a unique timbral expansion.
It has a library with more than 20 GB of rhythms, pulses, textures, atmospheres and a revolutionary modular engine that creates molecular loops, patterns and textures. It also includes percussion samples, rhythms, field recordings, live acoustic and orchestral treatments, textures and a collection of vintage synthesizer recordings. It allows to sculpt, filter, and cut rhythmically all these samples.
Another important aspect is the reproduction of polyphonic effects. It also facilitates a greater interaction of the interface in real time and offers the possibility of deforming and transforming its molecular patterns.
BT Phobos introduces the concept of polyvinvolution synthesis, which consists in choosing a compass, pads or strings and processing them through a selection of tonal convolutions that contain the same sounds as the sources themselves using three separate convolutions to modify the four potential channels of the sound.
The assignment control allows you to use a dozen preset functions such as Velocity, Pan, Cutoff, Envelope, Attack or Release among others and also create custom assignments. This functionality applies to the Mapping control in sound sources as well as in convolders.
I have more than 700 designed presets classified as Harmonic, Rhythmic, Analog, Atonal, Hybrid, Drones, Pads, Loops, Convolution Synths and Combos. It contains more than 2000 unique sounds that can be used as a sound source or as an impulse response. In addition to modulation sources such as ADSR, offsets, filters, doors and four independent LFOs.
Spitfire BT Phobos is compatible with Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X operating systems and comes in AAX, AU, VST and VST3 formats.
