"Probably the most versatile wavetable synthesizer"
Vaporizer 2 is our flagship hybrid wavetable additive / subtractive VST / AU / AAX synthesizer / sampler workstation.
The heart of this plugin is the alias-free versatile high-performance wavetable sound engine with low system CPU resource usage.
Vaporizer 2 comes with a groundbreaking wavetable editor with a vast number of editing possibilities including frequency shift, smooth, clean, bend and bloat for single-cycles, parts of single-cycles or even whole wavetables.
Featuring an easy-to use wavetable draw mode with smooth Bezier curves and snap to grid function.
Includes 780+ wavetables and single cycles and 410+ factory presets.
Vaporizer 2 features a comprehensive preset management system with tags, free text search, file system folder management and ratings.

- Mix-in, amplitude modulate, interpolate, convolute, time>frequency, frequency>time or normalize wavetable cycles
- Generate FM, PWM, harmonic morphed / reduced, low pass / high pass / band pass / comb / formant filtering and even hard sync wavetables out of an arbitrary single cycle waveform
- Morphing and phase shifting of wavetable cycles

- FM synthesis up to a chain of 4 oscillators
- Sampler section (wav / aiff / ogg / mp3) with loop points, loop start modulation, zero crossing detection and key tracking
- Granular synthesis mode in the sampler section for stunning ambient effects
- Resample samples to wavetables with pitch detection
- Intelligent polyphonic portamento / glissando (you need to hear it!)
- Mono legato mode or polyphonic 4 / 16 voice modes
- Three effects busses including 4 x oversampling and mono cutoff to preserve a clean low end
- 11+ highly parameterizable effects including reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, bitcrush, eq, compressor, limiter, flanger, phaser, comb filter, waveshaper and more
- All effect times and durations can be synced to DAW
- State of the art filter section (30+ different types) with 4 x oversampled LPF (biquad, state variable and diode ladder implementations) plus high pass, all pass, band pass, notch, shelf, comb and scream filters - all with resonance
- Very steep filter curves for punchy basses
- Real-time filter response display
- Comprehensive modulation system with powerful modulation matrix including graphical display of modulation curves
- 25 modulation sources including key track, random drift and four custom macro knobs
- 220(!) modulation destinations (modulatable parameters) for almost unlimited modulation combinations
- Innovative audio routing system for all sound generators, filters and effect busses
- Five freely editable MSEG envelopes with loop function and DAW timecode sync
- Five LFOs (per voice - means up to 80 LFOs in total) with smooth generation optimized for lowest frequencies with ramp and phase that can be set per voice or global - can be synced to the DAW
- Built-in arpeggiator that is freely editable and supports polyphonic modes, hold and midi file drag and drop
- Three step sequencers that can be synced to the DAW
- All parameter knobs / sliders automatable and support manual editing for exact parameter values
- Support for MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE): receive MPE MIDI dimensions (X/Y/Z) pitchbend, aftertouch (freely assignable), release velocity / lift (controlled via MSEG) and brightness / timbre (freely assignable) form supported controllers for highly expressive control options
- State of the art preset management system with tags, free text search, file system folder management and ratings
- General setting of wavetable frequency characteristics: sharp (ideal filtering), soft (butterworth filtering), dull (linear)
- Comes with a daily growing number of presets – free regular updates on the website
- Includes 780+ wavetables and single cycles and 410+ factory presets
