Lush was designed as a pad synth for creating ambient or
spacey atmospheres in any kind of music. Slow, evolving,
interweaving soundscapes are its speciality. The modulation
possibilities are virtually endless and are very easily
accessible through the central matrix panel. This makes
modular synthesis easier than it's ever been. It can do
bass and lead sounds as well if required. Lush has a truly
Four oscillators, three with sine, saw, triangle pulse
(pwm) white and pink noise waveforms each with an
individual on/off switch and volume control. The 4th
oscillator is a stereo sample player with 12 high quality
built in stereo samples. The volume section contains a
standard ASDR envelop and a main volume knob.
Dual two pole resonant filters with the ability to split a
percentage of the output of individual oscillators to each
filter. Oscillator 1 and 4 can even have the split
modulated in the modulation matrix. There is a link button
which means filter 2 follows filter 1 separated by the
value of the offset knob. Each filter can be separately
This section is the heart of Lush.
In the modulation matrix in the centre of row 2 the sources
are down the left hand side and the destinations along the
top. Both negative and positive values are possible, double
click sets to zero.
Also on row 2 are a step input (midi gate) and a continuous
graphical input which can both be synced with the clock of
the sequencer in steps from 1 to 64.
In row 3 there are two syncable lfos with multiple
waveforms, a random switch and a second ASDR envelope which
can be assigned in the matrix.
The final row is the effects section with a synced stereo
delay, stereo chorus and reverb.
All controls can be automated from midi and there is a midi
learn facility to let the user set their own controller
numbers. There are 84 presets to use as starting points and
48 blank user presets.. Cpu usage is low.
