Alesis Micron Analog Modeling Synthesizer Reference Manual
The Alesis Ion is an analog modeling synthesizer. The Ion has several features that make it stand apart from other analog modeling synthesizers. Besides these emulations which carry euphemistic names due to trademark issues , it has a series of filter models that are not commonly found on most synthesizers, such as formant and comb filters. This vastly increases the sonic range; most virtual analogs have only a single multimode filter usually featuring low-pass , high-pass and band-pass modes which was either designed from scratch or "inspired by" an existing "famous" filter model. The fact that two of these filters can be used in a parallel or serial configuration adds to the sound design possibilities. Besides the selection of filters, it has an extensive modulation matrix.
