8-note polyphonic Virtual Analog synth with powerful and intuitive control

Five unique oscillator types

Multi-saw
Multi Saw produces a typical synthesizer sound on the basis of sawtooth waveforms.
The term “Multi” stands for the possibility to layer multiple waveforms.

Pulse
Produces a basic synthesizer voice by using square waves. Two square waves with different pitches can be layered to make the sound more complex.

OSC Sync
Produces voices having two oscillators (OSC1 and OSC2), with OSC2 locked in sync with OSC1. Intense harmonics can be generated by changing the pitch and tone of OSC2, making it possible to create highly distinctive, dazzling sounds.

Ring Mod
Produces voices by multiplying the signals from two oscillators (OSC1 and OSC2). Metallic-sounding voices with no distinct pitch can be created by changing the pitches of the oscillators.

FM
Produces voices having two oscillators (OSC1 and OSC2), with the frequency of OSC1 modulated by OSC2. This makes it possible to create voices with intense harmonics such as those of the Yamaha DX7 and other FM synthesizers.

Controls

LFO
The [DEPTH] and [SPEED] sliders control modulation speed and intensity. In addition to typical LFO uses, you can create interesting sound effects using extreme settings. So if you want get back at your motorcycle-driving neighbors, try out the following example! (Some amplification may be required!)

EG
EG/FEG slider determines how much the Envelope affects Amplitude or Filter. The”zero” position (AEG) means the Envelope only affects Amplitude. Asthe slider is moved upwards, the more influence the Envelope has on the Filter. In the middle position the effect on Filter and Amplitude is the same.

The envelope (EG) is set by the ADSR principle (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release) with four sliders. Again, the range of values is from 0 to 127.

FILTER
reface CS is equipped with a resonant low-pass Filter (18 db). The Cutoff slider adjusts the Filter from follow closed (0) to wide open (127) while the Resonance slider adds harmonics at the Cutoff point. The filter can even self-oscillate creating different kinds of synth sound.

EFFECT
The onboard effects processor features five effect types to add depth to your sound.
Use the Type slider to select the desired effect. Depth determines the effect’s intensity (also known as “Wet/Dry”). The Phaser and Chorus/Flanger are powered by Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology.

PORTAMENT
The reface CS Portamento slider has two functions. It controls the typical Portamento effect: switching reface to 8-note polyphonic to 1-note monophonic and controlling Portamento time in monophonic mode.

Looper

Integrated MIDI Phrase Looper: capture song ideas or just jam

The integrated Looper lets you capture your performance and play it back. This is useful in a number of ways. First, you can use it to jam over top of a bass line or other ostinato part. Second, it’s a great way to dial in a sound by tweaking the panel while the Looper plays for you.
