Get your Trance on with LUN4, a 3-oscillator dance synth with over 600 presets, dual filters and hundreds of waveforms.
It’s all about the sounds, as the multiple volumes of presets videos will attest to, and LUN4 is big on EDM and synths sounds for your perfect track while offering enough tweaking and modulation to get you crafting your own ideas.
The 3 oscillators offer three entirely different waveform possibilities selecting from 15 categories covering everything from human voices to formants, synths, organs, bells, brass and blips. It’s a really strong starting point from which to mix and layer up to 8 voices before hitting hard into the dual filters. For messing with the waveforms you have FM, PWM, Ring modulation and overdrive.
For modulation, you have an 8-slot modulation matrix with 3 LFOs and 2 envelopes, and a side-chain to play with. Plus you have a Trance-Gate for applying rhythms and driving the beat through the synths.
At the end of the chain is a bank of 8 effects to wash everything to oblivion.
On paper it sounds like a pretty decent virtual synthesizer with a straightforward interface and lots (and lots) of preset sounds. But I’m not finding the demo videos particularly inspiring. I guess if this hits on the exact sort of music you love then this could be an awesome resource but I’m left wondering if it could be a lot more versatile.
LUN4 is available only on Windows for £49.
