The new buck in the Synclavier stable

Synclavier Regen is the newest in an auspicious line of Digital FM synthesizers. Designed for desktop use, it contains the power of the Synclavier II DSP engine, enhanced and optimised. Full colour screen, liquid-like touch controls, high fidelity audio output coupled with a sound design powerhouse makes this the synth you always dreamed of.

Regen supports additive synthesis for full control of 24 harmonics. We’ve now added subtractive synthesis to the Synclavier synthesis engine, especially for Regen, allowing creation of super saws, PCM square waves, and noise generation. Or you can use samples for your carrier waveform.

And these different waveform generators can be mixed. You have up to 12 partials to use in your sound design creation with crossfades assignable to inputs such as velocity, pressure, mod wheel, and of course, keyboard.

Regen is loaded with content to get you inspired fast. There are over 550 timbre presets across 10 newly-commisioned timbre libraries. On top of that, there are over 2000 royalty-free samples built-in, including over 350 selected original samples from the NED era and 2 exclusive artist sample libraries.

When you’re done exploring the factory content, you’ll have fun with the sound design possibilities. You can layer up to 12 partials with different sound generators (additive, subtractive, samples) then apply dynamic effects per partial. It’s truly an expressive instrument, both to program and to play. Polyphonic aftertouch and MPE is fully-supported and there’s a sophisticated modulators section where you can apply responsive curves to properties driven by pressure, velocity, mod wheel position, and so on.

The Daddy of digital synthesis is back with a punch. Results are immediate. The DC-coupled audio outputs really kick on basslines and percussion. The pad sounds shine with that satisfying FM that is so unique on Synclavier. And now there’s a bunch of other effects, such as reverb and bit crush to play with.

Regen is absolutely brilliant. It really feels like a premium instrument and the sounds are unlike anything else, both retro but also very modern. It fits very well into a mix, I’m finding.

I’m having a lot of fun with Regen. I can feel the original soul of the Synclavier in it, but I am appreciative of how it’s been implemented. Definitely lends itself to a new application as opposed to trying to redo what has already been done in the past. I’m glad this exists!

To say I’m thrilled and absolutely love the Synclavier Regen would be an understatement, only the beginning of how excited I am to have this instrument in my studio arsenal.

Patent Pending

Does Regen support the 5-pin MIDI protocol?
Yes it does, we have appointed TRS sockets for MIDI IN and MIDI THRU will include 2 TRS to 5-PIN tails in each box.
Does Regen support multiple-output audio digitally?
Regen supports class-compliant USB Audio interfaces that are not composite devices. If you have a supported Audio Interface or DAC you will be able to assign Regen tracks to audio channels on the Session page for multi-out audio from your interface.
Is there any documentation available?
The best place to start is the Regen Quickstart page  here.
How about bluetooth MIDI?
Bluetooth is supported for some keyboards, but you need a USB Bluetooth dongle that works with Regen. We had best results with the Plugable BT4LE USB Adapter which is a linux-compatible dongle.
