So what does it sound like? Having finally tracked down a working copy of this relatively rare software my expectations were not that high but to my surprise what transpired was so primitive in nature that it imparted significant character in its gloriously aliased 8-bit audio. The filters really worked but in an odd way, the dynamics control and phaser effects were full of steppy artifacts, and most excitingly of all – it sampled beautifully rendering two octaves of MC68000 generated goodness.
I ended up programming up some 40 or so patches and set about capturing 630 samples in 24 bits directly from the line outputs of a recently acquired Amiga A1200.
It must be noted that Aliasonix is entirely based on waveforms captured from a low sample rate 8-bit source and therefore noise, glitches, stepping, and aliasing are very much part of the intended charm and character of this library.
