Beautiful new interface and improved workflow

FabFilter has completely redesigned Twin 3’s interface and workflow, making it more immediately accessible, visually informative, and speedy to navigate than ever, and adding new scaling options and a luxurious Full Screen mode for taking its synth programming environment to the spatial extreme. Individual oscillators and filters can now be added and removed as required, every aspect of the filters is accessed and manipulated within a stunning interactive EQ-style display, and the darker color scheme is less tiring on the eyes over long sessions. Responsive per-oscillator oscilloscopes, a beautiful spectrogram, and full visualization of modulation signals throughout the signal path let users see everything they hear, while the floating slot panels group active modulation sources at each target control for collective tweaking.

Improved oscillators and filters

It all starts at the oscillators, and Twin 3 provides four of them — up from Twin 2’s three — with which to build synth sounds of limitless depth and intricacy. Completely overhauled and featuring analog-modelled drift for subtle random pitch and phase fluctuation, as well as pulse width modulation, hard sync, and phase sync, Twin 3’s oscillators are flawless in their analog authenticity. Polyphony has been given a boost, too, with an upgraded maximum of 64 voices — double the 32 of Twin 2 — and the Per Oscillator polyphony mode, which steps through the oscillators with each incoming note. Twin 3’s filters have been doubled in number from two to four and similarly enhanced, with new vintage-style Bell, Shelf, and Notch types delivering characterful non-linear distortion, and the 6dB/octave slope option and modulatable Cutoff/Peak Offset knobs opening up even more sound design possibilities. And for anyone demanding the absolute best from their Twin 3 patches, the new 4x oversampling High Quality mode is just a click away

Massive FX section and new Arpeggiator

Twin 3 introduces a supercharged new FX section, comprising six colorful processing modules for transforming and polishing signals. Shape dynamics and apply saturation with Compressor and Drive effects; create space and generate rhythmic echoes with Reverb and Delay; and thicken and widen the sound with Chorus and Phaser. Needless to say, every FX parameter is available as a modulation target, so users can really bring them to life using Twin 3’s Envelope Generators/Followers, XLFOs, XY controllers, Sliders, and MIDI sources. The new Arpeggiator, meanwhile, provides endless creative inspiration, with host sync, Groove/Legato, and Rate Offset controls, and the gamut of note value and order options.

Full-featured preset browser

Replacing the simple menu of previous versions, Twin 3’s slick new preset browser makes navigation and management of factory and user patches quick and easy. Within the browser’s streamlined interface, presets can be assigned freely editable tags for filtering within the Search engine, set as favorites, and given author names and text descriptions. If anyone has Twin 1 and/or 2 installed, then all of their presets will appear in Twin 3 as well.

Vintage phatness, out of the box

Twin 3 is very easy to program. With its four vintage-sounding oscillators, versatile filters and built-in, high quality effects section, it's a breeze to create unique sounds. Using the new preset browser, you can type to search, tag presets and mark them as favorite, making it easy to find the sound you need.

Easy drag-and-drop modulation

With all the XLFOs, EGs, XY controllers, envelope followers and MIDI sources you will ever need, Twin 3 offers practically unlimited modulation possibilities. Even the built-in effects can all be modulated! Creating new modulation connections could not be easier: just drag and drop.

FabFilter goodies

Finally, you get all the usual FabFilter goodies: perfectly tuned controls, MIDI Learn, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, extensive help with interactive help hints, NEON and SSE optimization, and much more.
