Art Pyrite - VST Instrument

Powerfull atmospheric 32 bit software synthesizer. It creates unique variable Atmospheres, Soundscapes, Pads, Textures, Ambient, Sound Effects & Rhythmic and Melodic Sequences.

Running ART Pyrite 32 bit plugin in a 64 bit host might require a bridge-adapter/wrapper like JBridge.
This is not necessary if you use a 64 bit OS (Vista or Windows 7/8) and a 32 bit host.

This software synthesizer offers a wide spectrum of miscellaneous sounds, suitable for all music styles including NewAge and Movie Music.

You can easily create your own presets with basic sounds or by using sounds from external SF2 files. You also can create dynamic sequences by using wide possibilities of the modulation section and/or by using an included step sequencer for one oscillator, couple of oscillators or all oscillators. There is also available the Random button which can be used to change most of the parameters including changes of waveforms to create really unique sounds.
