What's New in Proteus X2:

TwistaLoop Player
TwistaLoop™ Player is a real-time audio manipulation tool for samples with beat, bar, and loop information that offers real-time audio time expansion/compression, the ability to play different beats or bars from the same sample, the switching in real-time of which loop plays via a continuous controller, and much more. TwistaLoop allows you to sync these loops to Proteus X2's master tempo or to external tempo sources (like a VST host).

Morph Filter Designer
The Morph Filter Designer provides users with filter creation tools that E-MU's sound designers have been using for years to create the legendary morphing Z-Plane filters. The Morph Filter Designer now allows the construction of all-new exotic filter types that can be morphed from one type to another in real-time.

Multi-Function Generator
The Multi-Function Generator offers advanced LFO/envelope/arpeggiator programming, providing three function generators per voice that are directly tied into Emulator X2's powerful synthesis architecture (over 100 parameters). These Function Generators have several key sync and direction modes that enable complex levels of control, and can be programmed to modulate pitch, filters, volume, retrigger samples or LFO's, change tempo or trigger other events.
