System-X is a Kontakt 5 instrument that acts as front end for the Roland System 100 Construction Kit sample library. It takes all the sounds in the library and provides a GUI to control it with. The main tool for sound shaping is the AET morphing filter, this “morphs” between different velocity layers and in this instance is being used to simulate the opening and closing of the System 100’s filter.
Three “Oscillators”* each with 12 different waveforms
Noise “Oscillator” switchable between white and pink
2 LFO’s. LFO 1 is a sine wave with key tracking. LFO 2 has 3 selectable wave shapes.
4 ADSR Envelopes 3 of which are fully routable to the morph level or pitch of any of the “oscillators”
Global morph and morph key tracking controls
A chorus effect with mix, depth and speed control
3 alternative configurations with different feature sets (synced LFOs, a monophonic version with all waveforms available at once and a cut down version for low RAM usage.
