Expressive, Polyphonic, Fast

Introducing a revolutionary new way to turn your guitar or bass into a fully featured polyphonic synth: Roxsyn, the world’s first metamorphic guitar synthesizer. Expressive, fast and responsive to every nuance, it is a league apart from all other guitar synths to date.

No Messy Pitch Tracking, No Soulless G2M. Just Pure Guitar.

Why treat your guitar as a poor keyboard substitute when you know it's capable of much, much more? Thanks to Roxsyn's all-original synthesis technology, there is no more error-prone pitch tracking. Hence, there are no pitch estimation hiccups, octave glitches, or garbled chords. There is no cold, temperimental G2M between your guitar and synth to destroy everything human about your playing, either.

Instead, Roxsyn’s metamorphic sound generation technology passes through all the personality of your sound: vibrato, slides, bends, dynamics, even extended technique. The result is a polyphonic synthesizer that is as fast and accurate as it is richly expressive.

And there is no need for special MIDI pickups or hardware: just plug into your favorite Lightning/USB audio interface, and start synthing!

Groundbreaking Metamorphic Synth Engine

Roxsyn’s big synth heart is its three metamorphic signal generators (AKA oscillators) that transform your guitar or bass into a powerful synth. Each generator offers 5 unique waveforms, and has a 4+ octave range to cover a wide spectrum of frequencies. They also feature stereo panning, and can route into either of Roxsyn’s dual filter banks. You can even dial in your guitar directly into the synth engine for even bigger sounds.

Each with four special, virtual-analog filter types and dedicated envelopes, the filter banks help sculpt the synth generators in countless new ways. The envelopes are specially designed for the guitar, and are driven by a fully adjustable automatic trigger generator controlled by your playing dynamics. Envelopes offer original features like finite-duration sustain stages, as well as the ability to receive or ignore trigger-off messages. They can also be triggered externally via MIDI controllers like an expression pedal. An additonal envelope controls the amplitude of the signal, giving you even more options in creating synth sounds.

Game Changing Guitar Arpeggiator

Instantly transform sustained guitar notes into fast (or slow), complex patterns with Roxsyn’s powerful yet easy to use arp. There are 8 stepping algorithms to choose from, as well as settable note value, swing, and note repeats. You can even route the arp to any combination of the 3 voice generators — enabling you to layer a non-arpeggiated sound with an arp pattern. What's more, the arp can send trigger signals into any of Roxsyn’s 4 envelopes, and even reset the LFOs. So it’s also a handy rhythmic / trance tool as well!

New Worlds via Modulation & FX

Roxsyn’s user friendly modulation matrix lets you manipulate parameters (pitch, amplitude, filters, etc) using its two LFOs and mod envelope. Add subtle vibrato, even glide simulation, or go full-on berserk. LFOs each have 9 waveforms, feature beat syncing, and each matrix row can take any of them as a modulator and a control (and even a couple of external sources!)

And if you like your synths on the spicy side, Roxsyn comes with top-notch stereo FX custom developed to evoke extra synthiness: Powerful algorithmic reverb with the sound of countless rooms, phasing, modulating, 2-channel delay, and graphic EQ.
