Hypermorph is a new Max for Live device that offers playful ways to design mutating and evolving synth sounds. Blend or rapidly switch between four independent sound sources using a flexible morph matrix and a Push-ready
modulation sequencer – this new synth instrument is built to make sound design exciting, playable and hands-on.
Its synth sources are made up of beefy oscillators, wavetables, FM textures and custom one-shots, recorded from an array of modern analog and digital synthesizers. But it’s Hypermorph’s intuitive controls that open up such a wealth of possibilities.
Mix between the four sound sources using the XY Morph Matrix, or use the creative Morph Sequencer to blend or layer the different synth tones and create rapidly changing or evolving timbres.
Tactile sound sculpting is also a option for Push users: the device takes over the pads with a completely customized layout, and you can access the built-in sequencer directly from Push to automate the position of the Morph Matrix in realtime.Some control functions also work on other grid-based controllers, such as Novation’s Launchpad series.
