Novation gifts Sound Collective members Krotos Audio’s Simple Concept synth and 50% off the full Concept

Novation Sound Collective Krotos Audio

From 6th August to 8th October 2020, members of Novation’s Sound Collective community can download Krotos Audio’s brilliant Simple Concept plug-in synth for free, and claim a 50% discount on the full Concept.

Powered by the award-winning Concept synthesis engine, Simple Concept centres on a library of over 80 presets, each one affording access to specific elements of its complex under-the-hood architecture via three macro controls. One preset might feature macros for controlling ‘Chorus’, ‘Shape’ and ‘Octave’, say, while another offers adjustment of ’Tone’, ‘Filter’ and ‘Space’. Certain presets enable the amplitude or pitch of any external sound source to be used as an envelope-following modulation source, and an ADSR envelope allows for amplitude shaping.

Finally, the ’Tweak It’ system randomises pre-selected parameters at the click of a button for the instant creation of limitless variations on each preset; and the Oscilloscope lets you see the results of your edits as you make them.

Krotos Audio’s full Concept, meanwhile, gives full user access to the underlying engine behind Simple Concept, comprising two dual-waveform oscillators, ten effects modules and a beautifully visualised freeform modulation system, and facilitates unfettered assignment of parameters to the ’Tweak It’ system for controlled randomisation. A thoroughly contemporary analogue-style synthesiser, Concept successfully strikes the right balance of approachability and versatility, and sounds superb doing it.

Sound Collective members can download Simple Concept for free from their Novation account, and claim their 50% discount on Concept, between 6h August and 8th October 2020.
