The master of subs that controls even the lowest chords and produces the most stomach-churning thick sound that features a mid-and-side processing and a stereo imaging (250Hz and 4kHz). This warrants a wider selection of sound design capabilities. Cyclop’s awesomeness and real-time control add spice to existing tracks. The user interface updated for the touch performance. Its complexity, intuitive, and user-friendly synth for somebody who needs sub bass sound for their productions. Cyclop is now available on the iPad.
