Overview

Inspired by legendary subtractive synthesizers, MX4 combines several core synthesis techniques in a unified, hybrid synthesis engine that delivers fresh and vintage sounds alike.
  • MacMall Part #: 561857 
  • Manufacturer Part #: MX4-MOTU  
  • Platform: Macintosh 


As you explore its many banks and hundreds of presets, youll soon rely on MX4 as your “go-to” instrument. Fat basses, nasty leads, analog pads, vintage electronica — its all at your fingertips and conveniently saved with your host application projects for instant recall.

Tweaking sounds is fast and easy with clearly presented controls in one window — but with a depth and sophistication true synth programmers will appreciate. Create your music with pristine 32-bit sound quality, unlimited voices and unlimited polyphony (as much as your host computer allows). MX4s flexible programming and advanced modulation architecture provide the intimacy of a vintage synth, the flexibility of a modular synth, and the innovation of a virtual synth.

Version 2 is packed with major new features and hundreds of new presets that instantly expand your sonic palette. Best of all, MX4 Version 2 is a free upgrade to all MX4 Version 1 users! It all starts with the pulsating, rhythmic textures of MX4 V2's new Pattern Gate...

More built-in effects
Built-in effects allow you to incorporate the effect into your programmed presets, rather than having to apply them separately. MX4 Version 2 adds a flanger, phaser and all-important reverb. All of these effects are CPU efficient and add a broad new sonic palette for you to work with.

Stereo Detune
Try this: load a mono preset in MX4 Version 2 and listen to it—a pad for example. Now click the stereo button and play it again. Hear how it widens? Now drag the Stereo Detune slider to about 30%. What you'll now hear is nothing short of huge, spread across the stereo field. Now set the Unison Multiplier to 4, and get ready for really huge...

Anti-aliased (band-limited) wavetables
MX4 Version 2 gives you the best of both worlds: MX4 version 1's classic wavetables are perfect for that sought-after, searing aliasing effect. And Version 2's new anti-aliased wavetables give you the pure, pristine sound of every included wavetable, even in the highest registers.

Hundreds of new factory presets
Version 2 delivers hundreds of new presets in a wide range of categories, neatly organized into sub-menus for easy browsing. Many take full-advantage of the hottest new features, like the pattern gate, arpeggiator and pattern sequencer.

Mods page
The Mods page represents an entirely new dimension in multi-synth programming. You now have unprecedented control over the sounds you can sculpt and design in MX4, all just a click away.

Pattern gate
See and hear the Pattern Gate in actionPulsating, rhythmic, hypnotic, groovetronic—these are just some of the words that can be used to describe the rhythm-based effects in MX4 Version 2. Leading off the many new rhythm-based features is the Pattern Gate, which slices MX4's synth section into programmable pulses that are tempo-locked to your host application. Control pulse shape, pattern, length and swing.

Arpeggiator
MX4 Version 2's arpeggiator gives you everything you need to quickly achieve the arpeggiator effect you are looking for, including the "as played" setting, which lets you control the order in which every note is played. Or go "hands off" with the hold feature, which continues to play the arpeggio even after you let go of the keys.

Trigger sequencer
Trigger an MX4 envelope rhythmically with your host application's tempo. Program any pattern you wish. Gate and effects topologyGraphically arrange the signal flow of the synth section through MX4's two effects modules and the pattern gate. It's as simple as clicking and dragging.

Enhanced modifier key shortcuts
MX4 provides an innovative, "hands-on" approach to programming modulation sources and destination by clicking directly on the controls in the window with several intuitive modifier key shortcuts. The manipulation is so direct, you'll feel like you are touching the sound itself.

Pattern sequencer
The pattern sequencer gives you the means to rhythmically modulate just about any parameter in MX4, with pin-point control over every step of the pattern. Sure, you can apply it to oscillator pitch, but that's just the beginning. The Pattern Sequencer can be applied to any continuously modulateable parameter, like filters, effects parameters, wavetable index—you name it. This feature alone provides a entire universe of possibilities to explore.
.
Envelope follower
The envelope follower brings the outside world into MX4 by transforming the amplitude of any external audio signal into a control signal for use inside MX4, as either a modulation source or shaper. Guitar FX and filter FX are examples to get your ideas flowing, but MX4's modulation architecture is so flexible, you'll quickly discover entirely unique ways to dynamically interact with MX4's multi-synth engine.

New shapers
MX4 ships with five new shapers that will further refine your modulation programming: Invert, Transform, Sample & Hold, Lag Processor and Quantizer. These shapers can mean the difference between making a sound great to your ears and making it perfect.
