That's the kicker, it has it ALL. Yes there's a lowpass filter. Yes the additive sound engine has full control for setting the starting partial values, and has a level envelope for each and every partial that makes up your patch....cornutt wrote:It does? Damn, I didn't know that. I knew it had a lowpass filter, but... Question that occurs to me: Is it really a filter, or is it manipulating the partial levels in the additive engine.garranimal wrote:The Kawai K5000 series synths are most excellent for choir, has a 128-band formant filter.
I'm all jealous now... the K5 doesn't have that.
AND THEN passes this audio through a fully independent 128-band formant filter. Each and every formant band has its own level setting. If that seems too static, the formant filter also has a dedicated envelope contour to animate the sound further. Think of the formant filter envelope as an EQ boost or cut that can start anywhere in the formant range and sweep up or down to emphasize/de-emphasize parts of the formant filter range over time. It's mind boggling.
