With its vast sound capabilities, unique
sound sources, 16 filter types, countless interesting modulators,
endless routing possibilities, 12 high quality effects and much more- Cobra will make any synth-freak fall in love!
Uncompromised sound quality:
was designed to sound as good as the best hardware synthesizers out
there. Its unique internal structure, the flexibility in the
sound design process and its special features make it one of a kind! Cobra can produce a wide spectrum of sounds: at one
delivers the most distorted edgy lead, and at another point it is a gentle beautiful wide pad with the
sound of blue birds floating all over. Whatever sonic dream you have in
mind, be sure that Cobra can fulfill it for you!
Unique Sound Sources:
has 7 sound sources to begin with: Oscillator 1, Oscillator 2, the Ultra-Saw Oscillator, the Special Noise Generator, the Transient
Designer, the Atmosphere source and the Granular source. Some of
these sound sources cannot be found on any other synth. For example the
Atmosphere sound source enables you to
integrate various interesting soundscapes in various ways. You can easily combine the sound of a drill
with other sound sources for the creation of an amazingly powerful
lead. You can also add a relaxing forest sound to make your pad more
calming, or add the sound of swimming dolphins for a more
organic texture. You can use the atmosphere sound as a modulator: if you are in a creative mood,
you might want the sound of underwater bubbles to modulate
oscillator 1 pitch, while the granular sound source is affecting
oscillator 1 waveform selection (for example).
The Ultra-Saw sound source is made of 9 detuned saws, and it
is great for fat pads, string, or bombastic leads. The Transient
sound source enables you to shape the attack of your sound by adding
very short samples of various instruments attack. With
1 (and 2) you can choose 3 out of 30 waveforms, and then
morph between them. You can perform FM synthesis: Oscillator
2 is the carrier, while all the other sound sources can be selected
Each of the seven sound sources has a dedicated filter (you can
select between 10 filters types for each sound source). Each source
also has an envelope that can modulate
various parameters of the sound source.
Extended Distortion Section:
The distortion section uses polyphonic distortion not as an
effect but as a true wave-shaping tool. You can choose which
sound source will be sent to the distortion section and then shape
this sound source for the creation of a completely new timbre. You
can choose from 11 distortion types to get the exact sound that
Sixteen Filters Types:
above, each sound source has its own filter. There is
also a main filter section from which you can choose between no less then
16 filter types. There is also an advanced formant filter, and other
special types of filters that are capable of producing a range of interesting
to weird results!
Endless routing and modulation possibilities:
Cobra is a semi-modular synthesizer: you can choose the routing
for each sound source, you can choose the destination for the
distortion section, and you can even send each sound source to
a specific effect independently. Cobra also has a 6 slot
matrix that can produce magic! With many interesting modulators and
endless routing possibilities nothing can block your creativity!
The modulators are: 3 LFO's, filter envelope, amplitude envelope, 2
other modulation envelopes, 2 sequencers, and the envelope follower.
You can also use all the sound sources as modulators.
has 12 high quality effects that are an integral part of the sound
design process. Some of these effects are unique to this synthesizer
and you won't find them on any other synth. Unlike other
synthesizers, Cobra enables you to send your sound source separately to
each effect. You can also set a modulator to modulate the effects
The effects are: Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Phaser, Univibe, Granular,
Distortion, Equalizer, Booster, Auto-Gate (Audio-Slicer), Compressor and
Drums Loops and envelope follower
Cobra is loaded with internal drum-loops. These loops can be
routed to the envelope follower section to modulate other
parameters, or you can just run a loop and use it as a background
rhythm of your new composition.
want to sing through Cobra while you are playing, and use your
voice to modulate the filter cutoff? Would you like your pad to
pump with the rhythm of the track? With the Cobra anything is
possible! Just use Cobra as an insert effect, route the Audio In
to the envelope follower, then use your voice (or your track, or
rhythm section) to modulate a certain
library of 250 sounds is included. The sounds are divided into 6
sound banks for your convenience: Leads, Pads and Keys, Sequenced,
Experimental and Drums.
