Hamburg Audio releases Nuklear Pulsar Train Synthesizer | The first plugin synthesizer based on advanced – pulsar – synthesis
Hamburg Audio Nuklear comes with unique pulsar oscillators and enriches classic sound synthesis with essential new parameters: by disassociating the note pitch from the waveform length it is possible to create new, previously unheard sounds. As opposed to classic sound synthesis not the waveform length, but solely its repetition rate is responsible for the resulting pitch. The length of the individual “pulsaret grains” is controlled and modulated by a separate parameter, the “pulsaret frequency”.
