Released: November 2019. PolyTouch model released December 2022.
-Display: PolyTouch model: 3.5" multi touch. Previous models: 3.2" single touch.
-1024 user storable presets and 1024 user storable songs.
-16 parts. Each part can either be a synth, a sampler or a noise generator, with 2 filters and a VCA. Can work as a multi-timbral sound module.
-8 stereo voices with dynamic voice allocation. LD3 is 8 note polyphonic.
-Audio gain staging can be set to Xtra (LD3 standard) or Normal.
-One oscillator per part, that can either be a morphable (sine/triangle/saw/square/feedwave) multi-waveformoscillator with 9 different oscillator types (bright/smooth/resonator/Percussion1-3/ Cymbal1-2/Hand clap), a stereo sampler, an Xfade sampler or a noise generator. Oscillator and sample FM.
-2 filters per voice. 23 filter types, including dual filters, for up to 4 filters per voice on the PolyTouch model, and up to 3 filters per voice on the previous models.
-Cross fading chop playback system for ultra smooth transitions between chops -See the XXX7 video for a demo.
-16 Audio Tracks (only 8 can play back at a time). Chops while recording. Playback starts immediately when recording stops, and chops can be rearranged and re-pitched (again: See XXX7 video). Maximum audio track lenght: 32 bars (with track resolution set to 1/2).
-Sample time: Either93 minutes (477MB) or193 minutes (977MB) of mono sampling (half in stereo), max 8.192 samplings (for both models), kept in super reliable NOR FLASH memory. Samplings and audio tracks are immediately available when turning on -No loading time. Samplings are kept in 4 banks. Each bank holds up to 2048 samplings. 4 samplings can be assigned at a time to the 16 sample slots of a preset. These can be selected using the Chop Select parameter. Each sampling can hold up to 64 (non-destructive) chop points.
-8 audio busses, on which insert effects and optional analog filters can be placed.
-8 Insert effects, which can be placed on any of the 8 audio busses. Chorus, distortion, bit crush, pitch shift, resonator, stretcher, FM, glitch shift 1 and 2, pitch shaper 1 and 2, FAT, filters 1 and 2, compressor, expandor, delay, roto delay, bright delay, bright roto delay, variator, time stretch, sample pitch 1 and 2, bass enhancer, Reso EQ, comb filter.
-Up to 4 audio inputs and outputs. The inputs can be routed to any audio bus for effects and analog filter processing. Each bus can be routed to any of the outputs.
-16 polyphonic sequencer note tracks. Can be set to internal or MIDIout. Up to 64 steps per track and settable resolution. Position subtrack makes it possible for any step to play back at any position. 128 note polyphonic.
-32 sequencer controller tracks. Can transmit MIDI CC's.Up to 128 steps per track and settable resolution.
-Synthesizer Morph Knob and Sequencer Morph Knob.
-64 Random generators, 16 LFO's with draw waves, 24 envelope generators.
USB: Connect a USB drive for importing and exporting of wav samplings, presets and songs, and for updating the firmware. Imports: LD3 presets and songs, wav samplings, 44.1 KHz 16 or 24 bit, broadcast wavs, cue points (will be used as chop points or loop points). Exports: LD3 presets and songs, wav samplings 16 bit, 44.1 KHz. Chop points are exported as cue points, for use with many computer programs.
Audio: Stereo in and out, optional in and out 3 and 4. Left output also functions as a headphone connector.
Audio system: -Inputs and outputs: 24 bit, 44.1 KHz Cirrus Logic high end ADC/DAC. -Internal: 32 bit, 44.1 KHz. -Sampler: 16 bit, 44.1 KHz. -Maximumaudio latency: 1 sample - 22 uS (microseconds).450 times faster than Linux based instruments!!!
MIDI: In and out. MIDI CC's can be hardwired to many parameters, and/or used as modulation sources.
High quality MultiMec pushbuttons that should be able to withstand 1.000.000 operations. The knobs have solid metal shafts. Box is made of steel and aluminium.
