ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
Including the familiar tweaker-friendly workflow and buttery playability, the Sledge 2.0 adds auto dual-mode, extended sample editing both onboard and via the Sledge 2.0 Spectre editor, and extended polyphony to 24 notes to an already sought-after synth. Built so you don't have to be a professional to appreciate how expressive and responsive this sound engine is when you get your hands on the 5-octave Fatar TP-9 keybed.
The Sledge 2.0 closely resembles its predecessor, its expanded feature set offers you more sound-creation and performance options than ever. Studiologic expanded the Sledge's polyphony from 16 to 24, voices, which is particularly useful when you explore the Auto Dual mode. You can even set up the pitch and hold controls to affect each sound independently. Another great feature is the ability to save dual-mode sounds in the 1,000 available preset memory slots. The expanded 60MB of internal flash memory lets you load up samples, so you can create original sounds of your own. The Sledge Spectre software makes sample editing and mapping easy, thanks to it's logically laid out graphic environment.
You've got a lot of sonic options when you create new sounds on the Studiologic Sledge 2.0. Users will find the usual oscillators like saw, square, triangle, sine, and sample & hold and ramp too. The Sledge 2.0 also includes a set of 66 digital wavetables from the revered Waldorf PPG Wave synthesizer. With Sledge 2.0 you can create everything from analog-style '70s synth bass to modern, aggressive dubstep sounds, and cover a lot of sonic territory in between too.
Whether you like stacking similar tones to create monster leads, or tweak out on creating multi-layered atmospheric drones, you're in luck with Sledge 2.0. Beyond stacking oscillators, there's a lot of sound-twisting potential here too. Oscillators 2 and 3 can be hard-sync'd, and when you use sine and triangle waveforms for frequency modulation and add in the noise generator, you'll be amazed by the huge sounds you can create. Factor LFOs, Waldorf filters, a powerful arpeggiator, and both onboard reverb and delay (both of which you can use at once), and you'll never run out of ideas when you start tweaking knobs on your Sledge 2.0.
