Monophonic, raw and unbelievably versatile. Cyclop is packed with tools for the bass of the future and beyond. Wobble Knob, FX Sequencer and a hilariously versatile sound engine will give you endless joy.
Cyclop derives its power from the two sound generators. Spectral, digital, fat analog or use your own samples as a wavetable.
These beasts do one thing very well: delivering cutting-edge digital madness at the low end of the frequency spectrum.
Wobble expert: rhythmical material is the special power of this synthesizer. The Wobble Generator modulates synth- & filter with various waveforms at tempo-synced rates.
The knob recorder allows to run automations along with your MIDI notes.
Enjoy an incredible depth of sound design possibilities & great real-time control over 16 different target parameters. Along with the wobble generator, the more traditional sources like envelope, LFO (9 waveforms), a 16 step sequencer or the sound knob add up to five modulators.
Knowledgable Prof. Garbutt does an excellent job explaining Cyclop’s modulators and their 16 possible targets:
The effect section is a mixture of Effectrix and Turnado flavors.The four sequencer lanes each hold a different group of effects. The multi effect can be controlled per the FX knob or via a sequencer. Rhythmical effects a lá Effectrix or Turnado at your fingertips – complex sound design becomes child’s play.

”The recipe? Take three parts easily programmable synth, add one part custom modulation sequencer, blend with an LFO section that's ingeniously in tune with the way people make electronic music these days, and finish with a versatile effects set-up.”
”This plug-in isn’t a one trick pony, it can be used in any style and genre if you looking for a synth that can generate strange, out there sound effects.”
”Patience is rewarded: once you understand the capabilities here, the possibilities add up to a thoroughly impressive, unique instrument whose sounds can prop up your productions.”
”Mit allen Modulationen morphen, mäandern und zerbröseln hier die Sounds, dass es nur so eine Freude ist – und davon profitiert dann nicht nur der Dubstep-Floor.”
