The synth engines

The main oscillators are fairly complex synthesis units. Each of the two main synthesizers offers 6 different modes that have been engineered with a great deal of listening and tweaking, until that special sound was attained that makes Cyclop so impressive.

The Routing Module & Filters

The Routing Module gives you control over the signal flow between the synths and the filter section. There are 10 filter shapes to choose and a Vowel Mode to play around with human vocals and morph between them.


Modulation is the key strength of Cyclop. Cyclop'˜s five modulators - all of them equipped with a huge level of flexibility and customization options - can be routed to up to 16 modulation targets

The Sound Knob, Wobble Knob & the A/B control can grab up modulation targets in one move and combine positive and negative modulation on these multiple parameters.

FX Parameters

The Effect section was made to impress, being a mixture of Effectrix and Turnado flavors, adding the Gater and recordable knob envelope as special performance features.

Bass, Sub Osc, Stereo and Distortion

The Master Effects section contains final insert effects and the sub oscillator. This M/S Stereo processing is quite unique and will make your bass fill the room. 9 available Distortion units give the final synth signal some roughness and dirt.

The Game

The Game offers nice methods to just check random presets

which are called when you shoot the little tank, and to create nice sounds by shooting enemies or letting them break through to create funny melodies.
