After three years of development Galaxy Instruments proudly presents an exciting new virtual instrument with an extraordinary new kind of sound design:
X is a CONVOLUTION SYNTHESIZER, bringing an extremely powerful and creative sound design tool at your disposal: FX CONVOLUTION. X features over 1400 convolution X-Files to completely change over 15GB of Source Sounds, all especially recorded and tweaked for X. Divided into three instrument categories, Galaxy X delivers a complete production pack.
For instant use, you can choose from over 1000 READY-TO-PLAY INSTRUMENT LAYER. With the specially created very intuitive and effective user interface, it´s a snap to completely change an instrument layer or create new ones from scratch. Welcome into a new world of Sound Design.
Galaxy X brings convolution sources and X-Files together into one virtual instrument for the first time. This enabled us to co-ordinate all sounds and aspects of FX convolution into one integrated system with an intuitive, easy, but effective user interface. The source sounds start in the top triangle of the interface, the Sources section. The Sources can be layered by up to three, already creating a whole bunch of complex sources. These combined source sounds take their way counter-clockwise to the next module.
The Pre-X-Engine prepares the sources for FX-convolution. The source can be distorted, crunched and crushed, resulting in a very different interaction with the X-File. The ´Dirt´ Section is followed by either a Groove and Sequence generator or an EQ/Filter section. Contour shapes the signal and Repeat adds filtered echoes, also being convolved afterwards.
The combination of source Sources and Pre-X effects already creates a zillion of complex sounds. But these are only the feed for the beast: the X-Engine.
The X-Engine is the convolution module of X. This is where you choose your X-File, change its length and tuning, sync it to the host tempo and reverse it, if you choose to do so. The main control is the ´X-Factor´, representing the amount of convolution. The ´X-Factor´ is always controlled by the Modulation Wheel (unless you choose another controller) and always visualized by the centered X-Eye, so you can always ´keep an eye´ on the convolution amount.
At the end, the Post-X-Engine finalizes the Xed sound with a panning automation, Color and Filter control and the final Space module. Behind Space hides another convolution module, but this time exclusively serving for all kinds of reverb, from weird small spaces to the Taj Mahal.
