Chiral




Holographic Synthesizer





Chiral is an MPE-enabled Max for Live device inspired by the culture and methodology pioneered by early electronic performance instruments. 


*All sounds made only with Chiral and its built-in effects.

What still resonates with us today is the search for newness, not replicating acoustic & familiar sounds or to conform to expectations of what a synthesizer should sound like.

Through atypical methods of sound-shaping and a vast routing matrix, Chiral embodies a similar unconforming, exploratory attitude and is built to encourage the same in you. At each point along the path, Chiral’s parameters have been tuned to bend beyond & navigate outside of typical synthesis boundaries.

Twisted

The core of Chiral operates through the unconventional contortion of a sine wave, known as phaseshaping. Through the built-in three-dimensional oscilloscope, the twisting of your waveform is displayed holographically, reminiscent of a Moebius strip.




MPE Dextrous

Chiral is fully engineered to take advantage of all the expressive and performative possibilities opened up by MPE integration in Ableton 11.




Animated

Chiral’s integrated AM section provides a spectrum of modulation from gentle, slow drifting to overlapping, inharmonic tonality. Combined with the harmonic saturation of the Dirt parameter, Chiral can be deeply animated internally from subtle coloration to total destruction.





Vast

Chiral’s matrix makes available vast constellations of modulation, and thanks to MPE, full access to this multi-dimensional control is just waiting for fingertips.





Celestial

Space, Chiral’s dedicated reverb section, can quickly launch your sound from this galaxy into the next through the creation of massive, unearthly resonances.
