The STS-26 Space Transition Synthesizer is featuring amazing atmospheres, soundscapes, pads and textures. Although this seems to be an amazingly simple structured synthesizer as of its very straight userinterface it gains its astounding sound from the Transition method between the oscillators and some tricky modulation routings.
The new STS-26 comes with a new set of 128 waveforms + 21 percussion loops for low octave loop play (LOP) as part of the synthsound. Also two Contour Generators have been added which can be drawn by mouse at realtime thus rather complex LFO-waves can be done.

While the free version is with internal waves the registered version comes as an open system i.e. the waves are supplied as SF2 file. Also wave files up to 24Bit can be loaded into each osc. slot of the registered version. The free version is supplied with 128 patches – the 8 voice Pro version comes with 384 patches.
The 8 voice version is available for only 39,00 Euro
