Does your software synthesizer contain samples from other synthesizers?
If so, ask yourself this ...
Fathom does not contain any samples or waveforms lifted from other instruments.
Fathom is a new software synthesizer developed with the philosophy that to be called a “Synthesizer” an instrument must synthesize. It should be able to generate its own waveforms from first principles.
Fathom is fully modular.
You can connect any oscillator to any filter or effect in almost any combination.
If you connect two oscillators they will create an AM or FM modulator and carrier pair.
The only limit is the twenty open positions in the signal flow view and your CPU usage.
Fathom calculates CPU usage in real-time and updates this number as a progress bar at the top of the interface.
Professional producers in a live studio environment do not have the option of spending an afternoon searching through someone else’s presets to find the right sound.
They know what they want and can hear it in their head.
They want a tool which allows them to quickly dial up their own original creations in minutes.
Fathom was created with the professional record producer, sound designer, film score editor, and remix DJ in mind, as a tool suitable for the time critical environment of a professional studio.
If you do have extra time to spend with Fathom, it will be tweaking your own waveforms, not searching through presets.
