Madrona Labs Aalto

Madrona Labs are a crew of three named after a tree. Their new synth takes after a Buchla. Aalto is $99 and doesn’t use a copy protection scheme other than watermarking your personal copy. Sorry PC users it’s Mac only. This could make a nice sister to the XILS Lab XILS 3.

“Aalto’s sound engine lets you create sounds that have been difficult or impossible to make with softsynths before now. The heart of Aalto is a Buchla-inspired complex oscillator, with FM, timbre and waveshape controls that enable a wide range of expressive sounds. These sounds are uniquely malleable and alive, in part because they are made with dynamic calculation, not static wavetables.” – Sonic State

  1. I’ve only had a chance to use the demo of this so far, but as you know, the range of complex sounds previously impossible to make or even dream of making, it excels at. Woo hoo, back to the synth!
