Zebra2: A synth of all stripes
Zebra2 is a sound-design playground. A powerful, high quality (but still cpu friendly) sound engine together with numerous sound sculpting tools makes Zebra2 capable of a near-limitless range of new sounds and textures. A favourite amongst soundtrack composers, producers and sound designers, Zebra2 provides all the tools you need—the rest is up to you.
Workhorse with stripes
Zebra is our wireless modular synthesizer. It combines many different types of synthesis with a powerful modulation engine. Imagine — you can create any additive, freehand or spline-based waveform you like, apply a vast selection of spectral effects, morph between those waves and send them through classic synth filters. Perhaps use that entire sound as modulator for an fm oscillator, or route it through a comb filter —the building block of physical modeling synthesis. All generator modules, all signal paths, all effects are stereo.
Although the possibilities are practically infinite, you will never be overwhelmed by needless complexity —Zebra’s adaptive interface only shows the modules you are actually using. It is a fascinating playground for sound designers. That is what Zebra is all about, that is why it has become so popular. That is why thousands of free presets are available online.
Why we think you will love Zebra
the unique patching system is a bliss to work with, complexity never gets in your way
it is renowned for crystal-clear quality… which can turn dark & dirty if you want
no static samples here—pure synthesis delivers more expressive & natural sounds
heavily featured in blockbusters The Dark Knight, Inception, Transformers, Tron:Legacy…
the editor window is resizable, and there are some nice alternative skins available
it has an independent charm, with a vibrant community of helpful users in the KVR forum
the clever design and adaptive ui keep everything you need on a single page
…and so much more.
Of course the best way to learn all about Zebra2 is to download and install Zebra itself. You will find links for the current version on at top and bottom of this page. The demo mode is very user-friendly: after a while it replaces your notes with c-e-b-r-a (“r” is a random note). You can check out the presets, even save and load your own patches.
