A synth that runs on raw emotion - At a time when every vaguely creative synth seems to have been designed with only the mathematically gifted in mind, Symptohm: Melohman is here to remind the world that great music comes not from cold calculation but from passion. Unlike other synths, bound to rigid curves and predetermined behaviour, Symptohm responds to your touch, enabling you to control every aspect of the sound you create in a most natural, intuitive and musical way. More sonic control than you ever thought possible is now, quite literally, at your fingertips.
Symptohm: Melohman offers a palate like you have never encountered before, giving you the scope to create your own unique sound. From spectacular pads to heavy bass, unreal drumkits and strange ambient textures, your playing style will define your sound. This unique and powerful new form of synthesis features ultra flexible routing, FX support from the acclaimed Quad Frohmage filter bank, and an innovative matrix, which can be controlled via midi. Use the Melohman as an outrageously powerful modulation controller, or let it adapt itself to your playing style. Either way, you will not be able to keep your hands off it.
Symptohm: Melohman has been brought lovingly into this world to open musical doors, put the passion back into music making and ensure that, above all, music is fun. If you are bored with synths, this will revive your flagging spirits. If, on the other hand, you are a synth addict, you may want to check with your doctor in case the excitement proves too much. Whatever your state of mind, if you are a musician, you will be inspired.

- Two unique sample based SyncGrain synthesis (Polyphonic or monotimbral, depending on preference). Create a morphing oscillator out of any sample, and even use multisamples to create drumkits!
- Adaptable sub oscillator brightness based on SyncGrain spectral content, a stereo noise generator, a ring modulator per voice. Also features inter-voice ring modulation
- Dynamic routing of the signal into the Quad Frohmage filter bank (yes, with loads of filter types, distortion, band delay and everything else you would expect from this world class unit).
- Extensive modulation options (one LFO + one xADSR per parameter + MIDI) for almost every parameter.
- Output signal limiter
- Approachable, straightforward user interface: large integrated file browser with easy file management facilities, a thousand parameters instantly accessible across just two panels, and the usual Ohm Force selection system, flying faders and velocity simulation on the graphic keyboard.
- Over 30 Meta Patches included, each of them with its own complex midi behaviour, 12 patches to morph with and the designers comments to help you learn how to use them to their full potential. First major Meta Patches release as a free bonus.
