With its unique combination of granular synthesis, space convolution, and an innovative user interface, Zero-G Enigma is an instrument of extraordinary power and originality.

Enigma XY Pad & Randomise Function

At the heart of Enigma is the XY pad. The four corners of the XY pad represent the four leading voices of the currently loaded patch. You can move the cursor to any position inside the yellow cube to create movement between these four voices, from the super-subtle to the ultra-extreme.

You can also record your cursor movement pattern to create amazingly complex and evolving sounds. Enigma is an instrument that allows you to explore new soundscapes and dimensions of timbre and texture. So dive in and start exploring!

The randomize function is a great way to get inspiration for your next sound patch. It will take all the sounds in the patch and randomize them, giving you a brand-new patch to work with.

The Randomise All function is the perfect way to add a bit of spice to your life. It’s like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’ll get. And that’s what makes it so exciting. Will you get a sweet sound or a sour sound? A soft sound or a complex sound? There’s only one way to find out. So go ahead and press the Randomise All button. You may be surprised at what comes out of your speakers.

You can edit this new patch to your liking or use it. Either way, it’s a great way to create your unique sounds.

The XY pad is a powerful tool for shaping sound. By manipulating the four leading voices, you can create a wide range of sonic textures, from the smooth and subtle to the harsh and extreme. The four corners of the XY pad represent the four main voice types, and by moving the gimbal around, you can mix and match these voices to create new sounds. So experiment with the XY pad, and see what crazy sounds you can come up with!

Sound Effect and Sound Shaping Tools Included

Enigma is not your average software synthesizer. In addition to its impressive analog-modeling capabilities, Enigma comes complete with a powerful FX section.

The 20 included convolution reverbs provide a wide range of sonic possibilities, from classic halls and plates to exotic ones specializing in algorithms that model the behavior of physical spaces. In addition to the convolution reverbs, the FX section includes Delay, Phaser, Reverb, Compressor, EQ, Chorus, and Wave Shaper. With such a comprehensive set of tools at your disposal, Enigma is sure to become your go-to synth for all your sound design needs.

What is Convolution Reverb

Convolution reverbs use sampled impulse responses to create realistic acoustic spaces. These sampled impulse responses can be anything from a recording of a concert hall to the sound of a thunderstorm. Convolution reverbs offer many sonic possibilities and are perfect for adding realism to your sounds.

What is Delay

Delay is an audio effect that delays a signal’s sound by a certain time. This can be used to create interesting sonic textures or to make your sounds more realistic.

What is Phaser

Phaser is an audio effect that creates a sweeping filter effect. This can be used to create interesting sonic textures or to make your sounds more psychedelic.

What is Compressor

A compressor is an audio effect that reduces the dynamic range of a signal. This can be used to make your sounds more consistent or louder.

What is EQ

EQ, or equalization, is the process of altering the frequency response of a signal. This can be used to make your sounds more consistent or to emphasize certain frequencies.

What is Chorus

Chorus is an audio effect that adds a slight delay to the sound and then mixes it with the original signal. This can be used to make your sounds more lush and full.

What is Wave Shaper

Waveshaper is an audio effect that alters the waveform of a signal. This can be used to make your sounds more aggressive or to add distortion.

Designed to create lush ambient pads/drones and cinematic textures

Enigma is a 6-voice sample instrument designed to create lush ambient pads/drones and cinematic textures, amongst a variety of other things. With all these sound-shaping tools, it’s little wonder that Enigma is one of the most popular choices for film and game composers.

But what about the more traditional musician? Is Enigma still a viable option for them? Absolutely! The sound-shaping capabilities of Enigma are so versatile that they can be used to create just about any type of sound imaginable.

Loops are an important part of music production, and the way they are tuned can have a big impact on the sound. There are two main ways to tune loops: using the tune key switches or tuning individual slices using the tune tab. The tune key switches method is quick and easy, but it can be difficult to get the sound just right.

Sahara Desert

Did you know that the Sahara Desert is the largest hot desert in the world? And that it’s also the third-largest desert after Antarctica and the Arctic? The Sahara desert covers most of North Africa, and it’s estimated to be around 9 million square kilometers! That’s an area larger than China or the United States!

 Exotic Percussive Beats and Grooves

The Sahara desert is home to a variety of animals and plants, including the addax, which is a type of antelope; the Barbary sheep; the fennec fox; and the dromedary camel. And did you know that there are actually people who live in the Sahara desert?

The Tuareg people have lived there for centuries, and they’ve adapted to the harsh conditions by wearing long robes and veils to protect themselves from the heat and sand. So when you’re listening to the Sahara Beats library, think about all of the amazing things that are happening in this vast and fascinating place.

Tuning individual slices using the tune tab is more time-consuming, but it gives you more control over the sound. In addition to tuning, you can also change the style and variation of a loop with key switches.

The ‘feel’ menu provides five extra ‘feels’ to the original loop, and the speed menu enables half/double-speed playback. By experimenting with these options, you can create loops that are uniquely your own.

The ability to replace, tune, reverse, stretch, and pan each slice gives you a lot of control over the sound of your beats. And the Loops are synced to the host tempo so you can get perfect timing every time. You can also drag the sequence of slices into your DAW as a MIDI file, which is a great way to add some extra spice to your tracks.

So whether you’re looking for something simple to get started with or something more advanced to take your beats to the next level, Sahara Beats is definitely worth checking out.
