Ugo M-theory 1.0 VSTi
M-theory is a hybrid synth that is built around the
Karplus-Strong delay based physical modeling technique, and
uses samples, VA oscillators, and noise to drive the delay
based oscillator; resulting in a very wide range of high
quality synthetic and hybrid acoustic modeled sounds.
M-theory is the successor to the highly popular String
Theory and, in comparison to its predecessor, M-theory is
far more flexible and delivers a much higher quality tone,
with greater depth, clarity, and character.
Feature-wise, It has many more tone shaping options,
expanded filtering, more effects, programmable arps (clock
gate), a dedicated bow/sustain mode, dampening, and more.
One of the biggest feature changes is the option to use
samples as exciters for the delay oscillators...but this is
most definitely not a rompler.
How it works
The best way to think about the two part oscillator section
in M-theory, and how samples can work in it, is to consider
a guitar string. The string is under tension, but it needs
outside intervention to get it vibrating. You can pluck it
with your fingers, use a plastic or metal pick, you can bow
it, hit it with a drum stick, etc. In each case, the
resulting sound is still very much one of a string but it
will differ depending on how you chose to make the string
vibrate, and with what material.
In M-theory, the delays can be though of as the guitar
string, and the exciters can be thought of as what you used
to make that guitar string vibrate. So just as how
different objects/materials will produce a different tones
on a guitar string, using different sources as exciters in
M-theory will lend some of their tone to the delays, but
the overall sound still is the sound of the delays and not
so much the exciters. In fact, when you use samples you'll
find that remarkably little of the original sound will
actually be retained, but they can have a very large effect
on the tone of the synth.
M-theory provides 3 options for exciters: 24 built-in
samples, user loaded samples, or virtual analog oscillators
(including noise) and you can have two of them feeding the
delays at once, each imparting a bit of its tone to the
Karplus-Strong style synthesis engine
Dual exciters, each with the option of samples, VA or
Option to load your own samples
Independent low, band, high, and all pass filters
Dual programmable arpeggiators and an extra MIDI note
Built in tremolo, metal effect, chorus, delay, and reverb.
