Spectral constructor. Cluster is smoothly cycling through a filter matrix with up to 32 steps, which includes low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and band-reject modes per each step. With the filter slope adjustable from soft -12 to extra-steep -48 dB/octave, the variety of different effects you can achieve is immense.

Modulation paradise. Each sequencer step allows to select one of 8 envelope shapes for modulating the filter cutoff and resonance. Parameters such as speed, swing, time and lag are widely adjustable to precisely recreate the rhythmical feel you’re after. Eight separate sequences are stored in each preset, greatly extending what you can do with Cluster playing live or via automation.

Connected experience. Cluster has a clean, sleek design with colour-coded graphics. The controls are laid out to let you see all the action at once, while still keeping the look neat and tidy. Like with all of our products, Cluster barely has any learning curve – once you open the interface, it feels like you’ve already used it.

Update 1.1.3
