Explore a new approach to modulation using drag-and-drop. Instantly identify your mappings with clear colour coding and animated visual feedback.
XY Capture is a unique modulation effect combining an XY pad with a way to ‘capture’ movements performed with this XY pad, and use this movement to control any parameter in the plugin. XY Capture allows you to go beyond LFOs, Envelopes or Arpeggiators and intuitively shape the response of any number of parameters, and record very complex, personal and performable movements. Once a movement is captured, you can edit it, sync it to tempo, adjust the speed or direction and much more. You can also use up to four XY captures in your presets. Check out some of our factory presets to see how this can be used in your own projects.
Audio Input is Concept’s quick and easy pitch and amplitude follower. This allows you to feed multiple audio signals into the plugin (depending on your DAW), and use these as modulation sources. You can choose between amplitude or pitch analysis, and assign this to any parameter to modulate it.Instantly shake up your bass patches or pads by feeding in a kick, hat or melody into it, to gel your tracks in a whole host of new ways!
Tweak it is Concept’s unique customisation system. It allows you to quickly create variations of factory presets, or your own designs, without losing the initial character of the preset. By adding a parameter to the Tweak it system, you allow the parameter to be updated within a certain range every time a Tweak is triggered. You can add any number of parameters, so you could tweak one, or hundreds of parameters inside the plugin on a single Tweak. You can tweak almost everything in the plugin, including oscillators, filters, FX, Modulators etc all using the drag and drop.
With tons of great-sounding presets from top artists, including Roni Size, Richard Devine, and Kayla Painter, there’s every chance you’ll find a sound that works right out of the box. Cinematic lush pads, organic soundscapes, stirring strings, killer bass synths, screaming leads and more.
Presets Are Just The Start
Presets are a great starting point, but Concept 2 gives you access to almost limitless routing parameters to shape the sound. Use multiple sound sources, or load your own samples into the granular engine and combine with conventional oscillators.
Sound Manipulation Done Right
Routing and controlling modulation is a breeze in Concept 2, it’s as easy as dragging and dropping the connections; the creative colour coding means you can see modulation sources at a glance.
An Effects Powerhouse
When it comes to effects, then Concept 2 is no slouch.
With three slots and multiple effects, including; convolution reverb, delay and compressors, you can add even more dimension to your sound design. You can even filter stack and have multiple filters applied to the sound with multiple modulation sources applied.
