Digidesign has announced SoundFuel Solid (Mac), a synth plug-in for Pro Tools|HD systems. Developed by SoundFuel in collaboration with Digidesign, Solid runs on Pro Tools 6.7 or later software. (Windows XP support is expected in late 2005.)
Solid is an eight-part multi-timbral synth that can produce up to 32 voices per DSP. Pro Tools|HD cards will give you four-part multi-timbral sound with up to 16 voices per DSP.
Offering classic and "DX-FM" modes, Solid's two oscillators can reproduce analog wave forms for subtractive synthesis or provide two FM operators. The oscillators can also be set independently. A modeled multi-mode filter with resonance, effects, two LFOs, and three envelope generators are also included.
Many of Solid's parameters can be controlled by MIDI in real time, and the synth comes with 250 patches, including pads, leads, and basses. For more information, visit Digidesign.com.
