The only built-in waveforms that are not created from scratch like the others are of the noise variety. Almost paradoxically, we reckon that the advanced synthesis features will be of just as much benefit to the more casual user as they will to power users. Pros Full feature-set, impeccable sound quality, plenty of ready-to-go presets, sounds incredibly modern, arguably unparalleled tonal controls, pushes current technology to the limits. It all begins with the four oscillators, which each offer the same impressive list of waveforms - these range from basic to quirky. As a matter of fact, after checking it out in detail, this is one of my favorite synth plugins to date.

Diversion uses two flexible FX lines for a separated processing of each bus processor?
It had a special character to its sound, as well as a great user interface, and many people took to it right away. Another tone-shaping feature that impressed us is the Oscillator Effects section although the name is a little misleading, we reckon.
Studio One and only 2. In fact, Diversion can pretty much do anything you could ask of it, sonically. The oscillator section can also apply some effects to the signal. There are four identical envelopes you can use, each with the standard Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release schds.
Review – Diversion by Dmitry Sches
If asked if there was anything missing from Diversion's effects sces, we'd probably mention that we'd like to see a compressor. Speaking of effects, a set of super-high-fidelity 'usual suspect' mixing processors is included, just in case you want to keep everything internal and take full advantage of the oversampling.
Cons Heavyweight system requirements. We think that Diversion's greatest strength is the degree to which you can control its tonal qualities. The oscillators are routed through twin buses that sport some of the most comprehensive multimode filters we've ever seen. As usual, I try to cover everything in a review, and end up adding in bits towards the end that are notable. Try the Demo on PC or Mac! Moving past the many LFOs and envelopes, the next obvious modulation sources are Morph X and Morph Y, which enable you to assign the Master Morph to pretty much whatever you want.
As a matter of fact, after checking it out in detail, this is one of my favorite synth plugins to date. That said, if we had to describe Diversion's overall sonic character, then we would say that it has a slightly hard, edgy quality that excels at cutting through dense mixes thanks to its crystalline clarity. Just for example, one row may have a reverb with a small-room sound in one of the cells.
Depending on the waveform selected, movement in the X direction will brighten the sound, and changing the Y direction will manipulate the tone.

Typically, after a non-linear processing of the waveform inside the oscillators and bus processors, digital aliasing can occur.

They sound warm and silky out of the box, but if you're after a more rugged sound, the filters have a drive control with a variety of useful and interesting flavours to choose from. The Voice of Renaissance and Cantus: Oversampling Typically, after a non-linear processing of the waveform vtsi the oscillators and bus processors, digital aliasing can occur.
Effects Diversion uses two flexible FX lines for a separated processing of each bus processor?
The Trance gate has a step editor in which you can make up rhythmic patterns for your presets. Just like the envelope section, there are four LFOs available to use. Some of the included effects are feedback, a sub-osc, a boost for the high frequencies, and Chip, which is a Lo-Fi, aliasing type of effect.
Diversion has ten effects you can load into its FX Matrix. It was first released in August dmittryand the plugin received a lot of praise on many of the online forums. It also goes on to state the recommended PC or Mac setup, and there is the demo version that people can try before buying. The output of those two rows then mixes together, and is fed into four more cells that can have effects loaded in as well. If you vstl it to one of the higher oversampling rates, such as 4X or 8X, it sounds great, but it will also use a lot more of the CPU.
The matrix has an adjustable amount of cells for the bus processors output. One reason they mention the higher specs is the switchable oversampling.
