Multi-saw

Multi Saw produces a typical synthesizer sound on the basis of sawtooth waveforms.
The term "Multi" stands for the possibility to layer multiple waveforms.

TEXTURE :

Adds an octave lower Sub-Oscillator

MOD :

Layers multiple sawtooth waveforms for a thicker sound.

Pulse

Multi Saw produces a typical synthesizer sound on the basis of sawtooth waveforms. The term "Multi" stands for the possibility to layer multiple waveforms.

OSC Sync

Multi Saw produces a typical synthesizer sound on the basis of sawtooth waveforms. The term "Multi" stands for the possibility to layer multiple waveforms.

Ring Mod

Multi Saw produces a typical synthesizer sound on the basis of sawtooth waveforms. The term "Multi" stands for the possibility to layer multiple waveforms.

PORTAMENT

LFO

The [DEPTH] and [SPEED] sliders control modulation speed and intensity. In addition to typical LFO uses, you can create interesting sound effects using extreme settings. So if you want get back at your motorcycle-driving neighbors, try out the following example! (Some amplification may be required!)

EG

EG/FEG slider determines how much the Envelope affects Amplitude or Filter. The"zero" position (AEG) means the Envelope only affects Amplitude. Asthe slider is moved upwards, the more influence the Envelope has on the Filter. In the middle position the effect on Filter and Amplitude is the same.

The envelope (EG) is set by the ADSR principle (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release) with four sliders. Again, the range of values is from 0 to 127.

FILTER

reface CS is equipped with a resonant low-pass Filter (18 db). The Cutoff slider adjusts the Filter from follow closed (0) to wide open (127) while the Resonance slider adds harmonics at the Cutoff point. The filter can even self-oscillate creating different kinds of synth sound.

EFFECT

The onboard effects processor features five effect types to add depth to your sound.
Use the Type slider to select the desired effect. Depth determines the effect's intensity (also known as "Wet/Dry"). The Phaser and Chorus/Flanger are powered by Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology.

PORTAMENT

The reface CS Portamento slider has two functions. It controls the typical Portamento effect: switching reface to 8-note polyphonic to 1-note monophonic and controlling Portamento time in monophonic mode.

Looper

Integrated MIDI Phrase Looper: capture song ideas or just jam

The integrated Looper lets you capture your performance and play it back. This is useful in a number of ways. First, you can use it to jam over top of a bass line or other ostinato part. Second, it's a great way to dial in a sound by tweaking the panel while the Looper plays for you.

Sound

・Analog Physical Modeling Engine with multiple synthesis and oscillator types

Each oscillator type has flexible LFO and ADSR routing plus unique Texture and Mod controls that work as follows:

Multi-saw

Texture, control adds sub-oscillator

Mod, layers multiple sawtooth waves

Pulse

Texture, changes pitch of 2nd square wave

Mod, change pulse width

Oscillator Sync

Texture, changes pitch and tone of OSC2

Mod, sets pitch change amount

Ring Modulation

Texture, changes pitch of OSC1

Mod, changes pitch of OSC2

Frequency Modulation

Texture, sets Modulation amount

Mod, changes pitch of the Modulator

・Onboard effects processor with five types add depth to your sound

The effect types are: OFF (effect bypass,) Delay, VCM Phaser, VCM Chorus/Flanger and Distortion

・8-note polyphony allows complex chords and pads or switch to mono Mode for fat synth bass or solo leads

Control

・Based on the FS action found on the flagship Motif XF, HQ (High Quality) Mini Keys provide premium feel and response for fast, accurate and natural playing

・Integrated Phrase Looper: capture song ideas or just jam

・Continuous controller pedal input for volume control
