Etymology[ edit ] The French word absinthe can refer either to the alcoholic beverage or, less commonly, to the actual wormwood plant. Whether the word was a borrowing from Persian into Greek, or from a common ancestor of both, is unclear. Alternative spellings for absinthe include absinth, absynthe and absenta. Absinth without the final e is a spelling variant most commonly applied to absinthes produced in central and eastern Europe, and is specifically associated with Bohemian-style absinthes. The medical use of wormwood dates back to ancient Egypt and is mentioned in the Ebers Papyrus , c. Wormwood extracts and wine-soaked wormwood leaves were used as remedies by the ancient Greeks.

An extended Universal Library is included with this update. The Envelope Page can be resized. Multiple sample paths can be set within the Options dialog. Several minor improvements and fixes are included. The setup procedure discussed on this page only applies to the standalone mode, all remaining steps are identical in both stand-alone and plug-in mode.
More information about activation and the Service Center is available in the separate Setup Guide that was also installed. Choose your output device. Most soundcards nowadays have drivers specifically written for them. We recommend using those drivers whenever possible.
If available, choose the driver name that includes the model number or manufacturer of your soundcard or audio interface. Also, if you should ever face the problem that there is no audio output or no MIDI input, these settings are a good place to start troubleshooting. It will guide you through the activation process during which you have to enter your serial number.
You will not be able to save sounds, and recalling of settings within a host is also disabled. The application will also quit automatically after 30 minutes. All features of the sound engine as well as the library sounds are Routing Setup Soundcard Setup If your soundcard has multiple output capabilities, here is where you configure those. Most standard soundcards have just one stereo out. MIDI Setup 1. First choose your interface type. This is the delay from the soundcard input to the soundcard output.
Select the desired sample rate. To begin using it, you need to turn the input on. It could also mean that the device driver is not correctly installed. The requirement for this type of search is that the sounds carry Attributes. You can search a sound by combining musical terms that describe your sound. As an example, we will search for a sound for a film. We have a piano unlike any other in mind, a piano that is accompanied by mysterious, floating sounds.
The ideal sound would be one that continues to change even after the note is played so that it creates a strange atmosphere. We are working on film music and must operate using multi-channel film score formats.
This is why we use the Browser and the so-called Attributes to track down the right sound. Essentially, Attributes are tags that you can attach to your sounds, which also give information about the properties of your sounds. If not then you must call it up yourself. The Browser Window is shown underneath the Navigation Bar. You can see that the Browser Window is divided into several columns.
The five columns on the left make up one group called the Database View. The heading describes the Categories, below are the Attributes. Click with your mouse on the chosen field in order to select an Attribute.
The field is then highlighted to show that the Attribute has been selected. To deselect an Attribute simply click on the field again. On the right, we find the Search Result List. In this function window the browser displays the search results. It is also divided into columns that contain information about the selected sounds. Let us now start searching for our sound. You will find the different sound types in the first column of the Database View, which is titled Instrument.
You can specify the basic character of a sound in the next column titled Source. Here you will find entries that lead to a certain synthesizing process, for example FM or Physical Model, but also general Attributes like Processed, Layered and Surround. We will try our luck with the last three mentioned. Go ahead and add the Attributes Digital and Synthetic to the search. You will see a definitively shorter list of sounds in the Search Result List appears.
Attributes that describe sound colors can be found in the category called Timbre. It may include, for example, expressions like Distorted, Warm and Hard, but also terms that relate to material qualities or to the vibe.
The column Articulation contains Attributes that link to the playing style or application area of the sounds. Descriptions of the keystroke behavior, decay length and what happens while you are playing are also found here just like the familiar sound categories Lead or Pad.
You can see a selection of musical genres in the last column titled genre. Remember: we are working on a film soundtrack, so Film Music is the obvious choice. Now look at the Search Result List. Now play several keys on your MIDI keyboard. You hear a sound that corresponds very closely with the demands set forth in the beginning: a type of piano, accompanied by mysterious sounds, which produces its full effect when played on a surround system.
You do not necessarily need to set all of the Attributes named in this manual to get to this type of sound. From time to time, you will see that fewer Attributes will lead to good results. In such cases, you can expand the search spectrum by deselecting some of the Attributes until usable results are shown. Play the sound again — you will immediately hear the difference.
However, there are many powerful features that have not been mentioned here. Imagine that you need to decrease the piano part of the sound: It should only be heard at the beginning. Right-click command-click on the Mac with your mouse into the first value field, currently displaying the number In the upcoming menu, select the entry Macro Control 1: CC1. You should hear the filter alter the sound. At the right side of this page you will find four knobs entitled Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release.

The grain cloud options of the Aetherizer effect are stunning, and can be applied to your own audio as well to Absynth patches.

The Mutation Amount slider adjusts how far from the original sound you want to go, while the Random Amount slider defines how much variation there will be between mutations. Aetherizer Absynth 5 features the rather intelligent and very useful Sound Mutation section with Fine Tuning and History features, which finally makes it easy for the newcomer to create unique sounds. Once you turn up the filter resonance and random filter frequency parameters, your grains emerge in chordal groups.

Method: Pour ingredients into a shaker and shake with ice. Strain into a stemmed glass.
