Audeon - UFO beta v0.9 (Pc/Mac)

From the homepage:
Audeon releases the first Mac OS X beta version (b0.9) of their flagship software synthesizer UFO (Unique Filters and Oscillators). It can be downloaded for free from Audeon's web site A Windows demo version is also available for PC users.

UFO is a software synthesizer built upon Audeon's proprietary TransModal Synthesis technology. Its oscillator model is controlled by perceptual attributes such as Periodicity, Brightness, Noisiness or Chaos, etc, lying on 2D controllers. Programming a sound simply consists of balancing these attributes by placing dots on the controllers, and modulating them graphically by drawing arrows. The hundreds of simultaneous possible modulations offer unparalleled expressivity, while the very intuitive user interface makes sound programming particularly easy.

For more information about the known issues of this first Mac OS X beta version, please refer to the "read me" when installing the software. The Windows version is already shipping and costs $139/€125. Both are VST instruments.

Preset Contest: the preset contest originally scheduled to end on June 12th is extended until June 30th so Mac users also get a chance to participate. The best preset author will be awarded a free UFO license.
