ACE: Any Cable Everywhere

Compact, clear, a careful selection of modules and semi-modular architecture makes ACE easy to learn. Simple but not simplistic. Compact but not limited. Clear but definitely not underpowered. With the ability to connect any output into any input, ACE is a powerful synth with tools and features ready for beginners or seasoned users.

    • Semi-modular architecture (with default routing)
    • Oscillators include pulse width modulation (PWM), sync, internal ring and cross modulation (FM)
    • Polyphonic (up to 16 voices), duophonic or monophonic (retriggered or legato)
    • Powerful glide options: constant rate or constant time, percentage range control, per-oscillator offset
    • Up to 8 voice unison (stack) with +/−2 octave individual detuning
    • 2 multimode analogue-style filters
    • 2 ADSR envelopes with fall/rise, snap, singing option for authentic analogue-style voice triggering
    • 2 LFOs with 0Hz to 20kHz frequency range (can be used as VCOs)
    • 2 multiplex modules for signal mixing / crossfading, ring modulation, amplitude modulation etc.
    • 1 syncable and loopable ramp generator
    • Mixer with modulation inputs
    • MIDI modulation and performance: wheels, velocity, pressure, key follow, gate, 2 user-definable MIDI CC
    • Circuit bending options: slop, crosstalk, oscillator cap failure
    • 3 effects: chorus/phaser (4 types), delay (7 fixed options), bass and treble controls
    • Multichannel MIDI support
    • Resizable UI from 70% to 200%
    • Over 920 factory presets
    • NEW in v1.4.2: Support for Oddsound MTS-ESP

    Cables anywhere and everywhere

    ACE takes after hardware modular synthesizers, although it is not a trulymodular design, more correctly it is semi-modular. ACE has a default fixed architecture (like for instance the ARP 2600), which means you can start making noise immediately ‘out-of-the-box’. Any default routing can be overridden by patching cables, which means that the options are practically limitless.

    ACE does not differentiate between audio signals and control signals. Any of the outputs can be plugged into any of the signal inputs. Hook things up, explore new ideas and crazy combinations. Try lfos as audio oscillators or a vco as lfo. Plug an lfo into a filter, then use the filter as an fm source for an oscillator.

    This exceptional synth is about as close as software gets to a genuine analogue semi-modular experience. It really is ace!
