Virsyn’s Cube synth was already a far-out morphing additive synth instrument. (It’s called a “Cube” because you can morph between four different sounds using envelopes or live MIDI control.) With Cube 2, you can now directly access and draw filters on the spectrum, a la MetaSynth. Powerful new resynthesis techniques improve the sound quality and flexibility of the previous version, among lots of tweaks.
