INTRODUCTIONNEXUS2 User Manual
elcome and thank your for purchasing NEXUS2. You are now the owner of a highquality product that includes a professional and comprehensive sound library and an easy-to-use but powerful patch management system. The demands placed on your computer’s CPU are surprisingly low.
NEXUS2 is a sample-ROM based synthesizer (often called a “rompler”). Thismeans that NEXUS2 accesses sampled waveforms from your hard disk to generate its sounds. Apart from the low demands on your CPU mentioned above, this method also has other benefits: It allowed us to sample several prohibitively expensive analog hardware devices and make these quality sounds available to you, the NEXUS2 user. Furthermore, the complex sound architecture in NEXUS2 gives youextensive control over the most important parameters to customize the sounds to suit your personal tastes. The internal architecture lets you generate highly complex soundscapes, stacked sequences and/ or extreme modulations – all with a depth and clarity you’ve never heard before. Dive into the world of NEXUS2 and experience a totally new dimension of sound. Specifications and features: Over 4 gigabyte library of high quality multisamples Eight alias-free classic waveforms Over 890 factory presets covering all popular genres Four different filter types with flexible envelopes Two freely editable master effects Freely programmable 32-step arpeggiator with note transpose Freely programmable 32-step stereo trance gate Flexible delay with adjustable modulation Production-qualityreverb (licensed from ArtsAcoustic) Can be upgraded via separately available expansions (27 already available)
