A sampler with fast workflow, pristine sound and no bloat
Proudly standing out from the crowd of complex and cumbersome samplers, Nuance´s streamlined and intuitive approach will boost your productivity and inspire you to create new sounds - fast.
THE INSTRUMENT AND DRUM SAMPLER
Nuance excels as both an instrument and drum sampler, providing an all-in-one solution for all your essential sampling needs.
With the powerful Map Editor and unlimited Parameter Groups, Nuance offers all the tools necessary to create high-fidelity multi-instruments, key split setups and rich layered sounds.
For drums, simply pop open the Pad View. Kits can be quickly constructed via drag and drop, and with multiple layers per-pad, its easy to sculpt floor-shaking kicks and mix-piercing snares.
At Nuance´s core is a 128 voice, 32bit, true-stereo sample playback engine, with unlimited parameter groups and state-of-the-art interpolation for pristine sound quality.
With full SSE optimisation and a small memory footprint, Nuance´s ultra-efficient engine is designed to be plugged into your host again and again, with lightning-fast instantiation and loading times.
First and foremost an expressive instrument, Nuance features a range of playability features such as analog-style monophonic glide, and various envelope modes: One Shot, AHD and AHDSR.
The Unison Voice system allows up to 8 parallel voices to be created with each note. In addition to traditional unison de-tuning and panning, Nuance´s unique Unison modulation feature enables spreading of any modulation target across the unison voices. Never before has it been so easy to transform simple waveforms into thick and wide textures, leads and pads.
EXTENSIVE LOOP OPTIONS
Setting up loops is a breeze thanks to automatic snap to zero-crossings, and the loop crossfade feature is at hand to correct troublesome loop ranges.
Four loop modes are available, including forward/reverse, as well as loop modulation.
The powerful FX section features 4 x FX slots, and a choice of 11 high-quality algorithms, including analog modelled filters, dynamics processing, and a suite of texturising effects, such as BitDepth and Frequency Shifting. To put it short, anything from subtle colourisation to extreme sonic transformation is possible.
The Modulation Matrix is an integral part of the core sound engine and all modulators run at audio rate for a distinctive analog quality.
In addition to standard MIDI sources such as Velocity, PitchBend and ModWheel, Nuances´ internal sources include 2 x Modulation Envelopes, 2 x morphable LFO´s and a Polyphonic Randomiser.
PROFESSIONAL MAP EDITOR
With the comprehensive Sample Map Editor, the depth and power to build advanced instruments is waiting to be explored. Featuring unlimited key and velocity zones, plus a range of expert properties (such as zone fade out) the tools to fine-adjust your patches are there when you need them.
With smooth zooming, multiple zone editing and drag and drop of multiple samples, the map editor is quick and easy to use and won´t break your creative flow.
The Integrated File Browser enables quick and easy navigation of your patches and samples, and includes fast navigation of Favourite Folder´s and in-place sample preview.
In addition to the high-speed .nu file format, Nuance supports .wav and .aiff and the industry standard .sfz format. For ultimate portability and data-integrity, Nuance can also read and write monolithic patches with embedded samples.
Nuance is ready for host automation without any additional setup. MIDI controllers can be assigned to any automatable parameter with the Assignment Manager, and configurations for your different devices can be stored and recalled with the Template feature.
