Keyscape uses the STEAM Engine®—the core technology created by the Spectrasonics in-house development team, and is the basis for all Spectrasonics performance instruments.

Virtual instruments built with the multi-timbral STEAM Engine® offer a wide variety of development possibilities in hybrid synthesis and control capabilities. including high-resolution Streaming Sample Playback, Integrated FX, Variable Waveshaping synthesis, Granular synthesis, FM synthesis, polyphonic Ring Modulation, Timbre Shifting, and our comprehensive Flex-Mod modulation routing system.

The STEAM Engine® enables us to respond quickly to changes in technology. Our instruments are fully-supported across industry changes and this flexible software permits more innovations and faster transitions in the future.

Using the STEAM Engine®, new products are being created from the ground up that support Spectrasonics’ long-term vision of the highest-quality sounds and the most musically intuitive user experience.

All our core software is flexible and open, allowing sounds to be shared across hosts and computer platforms. New sounds can be added to the library via Patch and Soundsource updates.

Satellite instruments, such as Keyscape and Trilian, are powered by the STEAM Engine® and can be opened inside Omnisphere 2, our flagship synthesizer. When Keyscape is used inside Omnisphere 2, users can unleash the unlimited potential of the STEAM Engine® by applying Omnisphere’s powerful features to explore endless new sonic possibilities and combinations!
