Yedey TranceDrive

Yedey TranceDrive

TranceDrive is a subtractive analog synthesizer designed for (surprise!) trance music production. It features supersaw oscillators for achieving the leads and pads necessary to produce trance music. TranceDrive also features unique “saw7” and “cry” waveforms. “Saw7” is a supersaw waveform with seven detuneable sub oscillators, while “cry” is an experimental waveform built up with several hard-synced saws. TranceDrive can create really great sounds and scores high on the “tweakability” scale. It is available in Windows VST format.

Features

  • Three main oscillators
  • Each main oscillator supports six waveforms: sine, saw, triangle, pulse, saw7, cry
  • Main oscillator 2 has an additional unison mode that triples its voice and allows for various voices to be detuned from each other
  • The oscillators can be chained (osc1 to osc2 and osc2 to osc3) using FM, PM and sync, these 3 options can also be used at the same time
  • Separate noise oscillator
  • Three LFOs, each supports five waveforms: sine, saw, triangle, pulse, sample and hold
  • The LFOs can be synchronized to the host tempo or run free at a specific frequency
  • Each LFO can control multiple parameters of each OSC, you can even assign several LFOs to the same parameter
  • LFO1 can control the filter cutoff
  • Two Envelope generators (Mod & Amp) with variable shapes
  • The modulation envelope can control multiple parameters of each OSC, and it can also be mixed with the LFOs. Additionally it can control the filter cutoff
  • Three types of filters: lowpass, highpass and bandpass
  • Each filter type can be set to 6dB, 12dB, 18dB and 24dB steepness
  • Nine effects, and they can be used at the same time: gate, chorus, phaser, flanger, distortion, delay, reverb, equalizer, stereo-effects
  • Each of the unused parts of the synth is shown with less contrast, so you can focus on the active parts
  • The output of the synth can be clipped to avoid overdriving noise. The clipping is done with a soft limiter, that can be used to compress the whole synth sound (just enable clip and turn up the main volume)
