AAS Multiphonics CV-2: Modular synth and FX excellence

Montreal-based AAS are one of the most well-known brands in digital instruments, producing a laundry list of some of the most popular synths and FX plugins on the web. Now, one of their most beloved products is back and updated to be even more powerful- enter Multiphonics CV-2!


The new edition of this well-received plugin takes everything that made the original so admired and turns it up to 11. Six of the existing modules have received enhanced stereo capabilities and new audio input processing features; a new browser makes for more efficient navigation throughout. A brand new scalable UI and improved workflow make for greater convenience. 15 new modules (including a saturator, crusher, logic gate, splitter, crossfader, mid-side, panner, filters, etc.) and a whopping 150 new synth and effect patches mean there’s even more content to play with. In addition, Multiphonics can now be used as an effect processor in your DAW of choice.


The modules have been thoughtfully put together to ensure both diversity and effectiveness within Multiphonics. They were designed by 15 of the finest patch designers in the game: Adam Pietruszko, Benoit Charland, Christian Halten, Christian Laffitte, Cipryan Bot, Clifton Develle Cameron, David Kristian, Eric Thibeault, Gabriel Vigliensoni, Hugo Léger, Niall McCallum, Philippe Dérogis, Richard Veenstra, Thiago Pinheiro, and Venus Theory. They are comprised of 15 synth categories (basses, chords, drone, generative, grainy, leads, percussions, rhythmic, sequences, sound effects, stabs, strings, sweeps, tuned and unclassifiable) and 13 effects categories (basics, delays, distortions, drum effects, dynamics, filters, gaters, generators, manglers, modulators, pitch shifters, reverbs, and simulators). You can see the full list of modules with a basic rundown of what they do here.
