ACE: Any Cable Everywhere

Compact, clear, a careful selection of modules and semi-modular architecture makes ACE easy to learn. Simple but not simplistic. Compact but not limited. Clear but definitely not underpowered. With the ability to connect any output into any input, ACE is a powerful synth with tools and features ready for beginners or seasoned users.

Semi-modular architecture (with default routing)

Oscillators include pulse width modulation (PWM), sync, internal ring and cross modulation (FM)

Polyphonic (up to 16 voices), duophonic or monophonic (retriggered or legato)

Powerful glide options: constant rate or constant time, percentage range control, per-oscillator offset

Up to 8 voice unison (stack) with +/−2 octave individual detuning

2 multimode analogue-style filters

2 ADSR envelopes with fall/rise, snap, singing option for authentic analogue-style voice triggering

2 LFOs with 0Hz to 20kHz frequency range (can be used as VCOs)

2 multiplex modules for signal mixing / crossfading, ring modulation, amplitude modulation etc.

1 syncable and loopable ramp generator

Mixer with modulation inputs

MIDI modulation and performance: wheels, velocity, pressure, key follow, gate, 2 user-definable MIDI CC

Circuit bending options: slop, crosstalk, oscillator cap failure

3 effects: chorus/phaser (4 types), delay (7 fixed options), bass and treble controls

Multichannel MIDI support

Resizable UI from 70% to 200%

Over 920 factory presets

NEW in v1.4.2: Support for Oddsound MTS-ESP

List of Modules:
2 x LFO (0Hz – 20kHz)
2 x ADSSR envelopes
2 x VCO (0Hz – 20kHz, PWM, VCO1-linked sub)
2 x VCF (LP1/LP2/LP3/LP4 and HP/BP/BR each)
2 x VCA with pan
2 x multiples (with modulation input)
1 x mixer (for standard sources + aux)
1 x ramp generator (loopable)
1 x mapping generator (up to 128 values)
1 x noise (white, pink)
3 x global effects (chorus, delay, 2 x tone)

Key Features:
At first glance ACE may seem overly simplistic, but remember that virtually anything can be plugged into anything else. For instance, try plugging an LFO into a Filter, then use that filter as an FM source for an oscillator. Crazy routing is possible, endless fun is guaranteed!
semi-modular architecture, with default routing like ARP 2600
25 signal sources, 30+ signal targets
up to 8 times unison with +/-2 octave detune range each
exceptional filters, can self-oscillate
LFOs can be used as VCOs and vice versa
sync, FM, cross modulation
use multiples for inversion, amp / ring modulation etc.
custom LFO waveform “tap map”
microtuning (Scala .tun standard)
100% free of Supersaws!

Fixed Bugs:
Fixed notes starting on same time stamp but different MIDI channel might not play
Fixed Cakewalk setting instance parameters to default on project reload
Fixed notes getting stuck when resetting playhead in Logic 10.6
Fixed crash when loading script presets (e.g. Randomizer)
Fixed rare crash on project reload
Fixed hold pedal sometimes stealing wrong voice
Fixed audio clicks when switching presets
Various framework fixes and improvements

Known Issues:
Context menus need plugin focus to work (Apple issue)

Special Notes:
AAX support on Mac removed temporarily (will come back in next update)
Updated minimum requirements, CPU needs to support SSE4.2 instruction set
Linux: minimum required glibc version is 2.28 (otherwise plugins won’t show up)
Multi-core support is not optimized for Apple ARM chips
macOS 32-bit support discontinued
