Origin is a modular system of a new generation opening innovative avenues in sound design. Loaded with modules extracted from the best synthesizers of all time (Moog Modular, ARP 2600, Yamaha CS-80, Roland Jupiter-8, Minimoog and Sequential Circuits Prophet VS) and new modules created by Arturia, Origin lets you combine these elements. The result: a new type of sound accessible through an extremely intuitive interface.
Sounds with an attitude
Origin sounds like nothing else on the planet. It takes the concept of the analog modular systems of the past to a new level using cutting edge digital technology. You can combine different modules from different systems, designing new synthesizers that have never existed. Take the oscillators from the Minimoog, the filters from the CS- 80 and the Bode shifter from the Moog Modular to create your own synth. Origin is based on TAE (True Analog Emulation), which guarantees an extremely warm, lively and powerful sound. How can Arturia manage to do this in a standalone hardware synth? Origin uses two Analog Devices TigerSHARC DSP processors that actually have more audio processing power than even the newest multi core PC processors.
Besides that, Origin is not a simple hardware synthesizer; it is an integrated system offering the best out of the hardware and software worlds. With several knobs and buttons, a large color display, joystick, direct access to such fine synthesizer templates as the Minimoog or the Jupiter-8, Origin arguably is a breakthrough in the world of digital instruments.
The Multi mode lets you play up to 4 synthesizers at the same time. You can layer them to create amazing sounds, split a keyboard or use Origin as a source for 4 different tracks in your sequencer. In addition, the Macro mode allows you to control the 4 synths at the same time, making Origin one single instrument. When you know that each of these synths can be as big as the Moog Modular V, you get a glimpse of the power beneath this beast.
