Description: DUNE 3 builds on the award-winning DUNE 2 synthesizer, adding new features and innovative ideas to create the best DUNE experience! DUNE 3 comes with many new patches created by experienced sound engineers. Since DUNE 3 is fully compatible with DUNE 2, it also includes its sound presets – doubling the size of the factory library to over 1000 patches.
The revised filter section in Dune 3 now contains a dual multi-mode filter and an insert effect. Various routing modes such as Serial / Parallel and Seamless Blending with Balance Control provide unlimited creativity! New filter types have also been added, including zero-delay feedback filters, based on our latest analog modeling technology. For creative creativity, there are new insert effects such as the formant / vowel filter or phaser, which greatly expand the range of sound design possibilities.
Dual Arpeggiators – Two arpeggiators instead of one greatly expand the sound design possibilities of the DUNE 3. Arpeggiators can be programmed independently and receive classic Up / Down arpeggios as well as playback of various sequences or even MIDI files. Plus, new features like Random mode or the programmable Arp Hold function make the arpeggiator more powerful than ever before!
Oscillators – DUNE 3 is based on its powerful oscillator blocks. DUNE 3 supports the following synthesis: VA, FM and Wavetable. With a maximum supply of 8320 oscillators at full polyphony, the DUNE 3 is a veritable polyphonic beast that can hardly ever be exhausted.
New to DUNE 3 is the “Swarm” mode, an evolution of the classic Supersaw sound generator. In this mode, each oscillator receives its own modulation, breathing much more life into the sound than was previously possible!
Updated Effects – DUNE 3 offers many new effects algorithms in all categories such as distortion, chorus, phaser, equalizer, delay and reverb.
One of the most important additions is the new equalizer, which uses technology from our GQ-7 Graphic Equalizer. Designed as a professional EQ for mixing and mastering, it contains four bands with high quality parametric and shelving EQs, plus two additional low and high pass filters with different cutoffs. All filters in the EQ are designed to adjust modulation without artifacts, so this EQ can be used for creative purposes other than traditional EQ plug-ins.
Another great effect is the new Shimmer Hall, an exclusive DUNE 3U feature that’s perfect for lush background sounds, great pads and great leads!
The new Wavetable editor – introduced in DUNE 3 is one of the most powerful. Waveforms can be created using tracing, segments, a custom part image editor, or by entering formulas. Various functions such as morph, fade in / out, normalization, DC removal, invert / reversal, make the creation of new wave tables very fast. Waveforms and tables can be imported and exported in WAV format and are thus compatible with a wide range of third party software.
