Albino 3.1.1

Sound synthesizer software with over 2,100 presets
Albino is a AU, RTAS and VST plug-in synthesizer. The famed Dutch sound designer Rob Papen provided more than 2100 presets that cover all type of sounds for todays contemporary music. After providing presets for the Emu Orbit-3 and Access Virus.

Each layer can have an up to 32 step rhythm arpeggiator with several modes: up, down, up/down, down/up, as played, random mode and a chord and modulation mode.

It can be retriggered, it can swing with your music and you can mix its step velocity values with the velocity you played the chord. Your own creations can be save or copy/pasted to other presets.

Many of the new presets use the Arpeggiator and so the possibilities become endless. Each preset can now be made up of 4 individual layers. So actually a sound can make use of up to 80 oscillators for a single note (4 Layers, 4 Oscillators each, 5 times Spread).

A typical todays DAW can usually handle about 120 Albino 3 Digital Oscillators or 75 Albino 3 "Analoge" Oscillators. Give Albino a try to fully assess its capabilities!
