Nuklear is said to be the first instrument that integrates pulsar synthesis (Curtis Roads) into the environment of a modern synthesizer.
In its four oscillators the wave length can be set independently from the pitch which itself is determined by the repetition rate of the waveform. Subsequent pulses are dispersed into the stereo field by the “width” parameter, “phase” sets the distance of pulse pairs. Additionally, a micro sequencer allows for the creation of pulse patterns.
A “pulsar” parameter is introduced which makes it possible to fade between pulsar synthesis and classic synthesis. This innovative synthesis engine leads to new and previously unheard sounds, especially in combination with the flexible modulation matrix. Among others, LFOs, envelopes and control sequences can act as modulation sources.
The mixer and the filters with resonance close to self oscillation and flexible routing as well as delay, distortion and ring modulation embed this “revolutionary” sound generator in a subtractive environment. The complex sequencer completes Nuklear.
