Oh, the things you can do to a snapshot!
Two pages/tabs of the interface duplicate the features of Orchestrata and the third page/tab is a novel 8-lane sequencer, each lane dedicated to a held note in a chord, so holding a chord will result in each note doing its own thing. Would love to see this feature implemented in an update of Orchestrata (Please, please, PLEASE!). As if the main interface wasn't enough, now an even greater mind-boggling amount of variation for any patch. Nice snapshots and 150 good-sounding samples/voices (that's 22350 voice combinations right there). The addition of the sequencer page/tab makes quantifying results a practical impossibility, except to say that surprises and results are easily accomplished. The TRANSPOSE feature (pitch/arpeggiation) is not your usual arpeggiator and will take some getting used to. It works for any set/triggered lane and interacts with the master and the lane settings to yield predictable but, more often, surprising results. You can get a single arpeggio within a lane or across all lanes, or simultaneous variations within/across lanes. Maybe I've been missing something but I can't recall any other pitch arp that works quite like this one does. Fortunately, all the settings on the ARP page/tab can be saved or loaded as an "ARP Preset." Within the darker theme, just an amazing amount of easily generated sound creations and variations, with or without using the randomization features. You will be saving a lot of your own snapshots (or regretting that you didn't). It's getting REALLY difficult to pick my favorite DivergentAudioGoup/AudioRewards instrument but this one is up there. (A "hats off!" aside: I triggered a script error, reported it, and was provided a fixed nki within about 24 hours).
