Magellan Jr's three analog-modeling oscillators, true PWM wave generation, dedicated osc unison module, and dual independent LFOs give it unique strengths and adaptability. In addition, Magellan Jr's FM module is an extra sound generator in itself so that no frequency goes uncharted. Absolutely NO samples used: only actual, realtime audio synthesis in pro-grade 32 bit depth.
Magellan Jr has two dedicated filter slots able to receive any of the 11 unique filter types. You can run the filters in series, or in parallel and blend them to taste. Each slot has its own ADSR envelope, cutoff, resonance/Q and contour settings, as well as tracking and envelope curve selection.
Magellan Jr comes complete with a full-featured arpeggiator as well as a chordmaker. With 10 algorithms to choose from, as well as octave, repeat and gate settings and more, you can quickly program and perform arpeggios. You can turn on the Chordmaker and then play chords by touching a single key, and even program and save your own chord progressions.
Magellan Jr has a built-in polyphonic step sequencer influenced by revered analog boxes. With up to 8 note polyphony, 16 or 32 step programming, pattern bank, settable end step, step skip, note velocity and gate, as well as a performance friendly timelock feature, it is a comprehensive live performance tool. In addition, it has a programmable timeline for composing songs out of sequenced patterns, and a file import/export feature.
Magellan Jr includes dual traditional keyboards, as well as two touchpad controllers. The touchpads can be assigned a musical scale and a key for convenient onscreen performance. In addition, touchpads allow for individual voice parametrization for things like filter cutoff or voice volume. You can also configure the amount of glide when moving from step to step to anywhere between full note-snapping to completely free ribbon-like pitch control.
Magellan Jr comes with a comprehensive virtual FX rack that includes a multi-parameter reverb, BPM-syncable stereo delay, phaser, flanger, chorus, waveshaper, bitcrusher, and a sonic expander; all of which is processed in 32-bit floating point, as the rest of the audio.
Magellan Jr comes from the factory with over 300 presets, ranging from basses to pads to arpeggios. It includes two smashing banks of over 60 patches produced by Sunsine Audio. You can create, save and share limitless banks and presets of your own without hassle!
With its two independent LFOs, Magellan Jr provides an extensive "modulation matrix". Each LFO is able to receive up to 3 destinations, which you can conveniently assign from a list. LFOs have their own rate, phase and trigger-delay settings, 3 reset modes, as well as 9 waveforms to choose from, including random hard and soft types. Each destination has its own dedicated amplitude.
With extensive CoreMIDI and Virtual MIDI capabilities, Magellan Jr can be controlled by your preferred external MIDI keyboard, your favorite vMIDI app or a MIDI Network Session. Conveniently program and control the Synth, Arp, FX or Sequencer modules. Audio backgrounding, MIDI I/O ports, MIDI Learn feature with 256 controllable parameters, and the ability to save your CC configuration are just some of Magellan's MIDI-friendly features.
