Sample text

It's not a onebutton magic module, nor a synth where programming from presets is necessarily a prudent option. As you might imagine, importing your own samples is the best place to start new sounds, and from there you might find them evolving to places you didn't really expect. Vocal sounds and phrases are an interesting case, since they retain their distinctive characteristics even when stripped of a lot of harmonic detail. Consequently, one of the synth's biggest strengths is in making sounds with the submerged-but-recognisable stamp of a vocal formant somewhere within.

One nice touch when editing the graphical view is a deceptively simple mouse behaviour, which responds to the speed of your drawing motion by affecting a varying number of partials. If, for instance, you'd like to thicken up the sound by altering the phase of only an indiscriminate few, just draw a swift line, with slow motions catching more. This is an invaluable time-saver when attempting to widen the stereo image by alternately panning a few partials in opposite ways. To get you started on traditional analogue-synth-style sounds, a wave generator has been provided to conform the partial ratios to the usual saw, square, and triangle wave shapes.

The only things I'd miss day-to-day, though, would be Pro Control's automation enable and autosuspend buttons — and the faders of course. The Command 8 has a wide-ranging appeal. It's inexpensive enough to appeal to smaller music setups, where it will be great for controlling soft synths, and where the ability to flip between controlling Pro Tools and other software is a real bonus. Project and pro studios can either use it as their main Pro Tools controller, or as a remote control to add extra transport and monitoring control, not to mention MIDI connections.
