The Morpheus has its claim to fame with the ability to "morph" sounds creating unique, evolving and intricate sounds with superb digital clarity. The Morpheus uses Z-Plane synthesis and filters. These are 14-pole filters that model and interpolate resonant sound characteristics. In other words, you can morph between different sounds and vary the balance of the morph between these sounds. Go from analog drones that fade into high strings, for example.
The Morpheus is a digital rackmount synthesizer. It features complete 16-channel MIDI implementation that can control most parameters as well. The Morpheus is also easy and intuitive to operate. This plus a dual effects processor and up to six individual outputs make this a professional synth worthy of professional studio work. From film scores to textural ambiences, the Morpheus and its new Z-Plane technology will satisfy you. It is used by Orbital, Astral Projection, Hardfloor, LTJ Bukem and Fluke.
