Cypher 2 features all the powerhouse capabilities of the original and adds an inspiring set of new features that makes it to a expressive sound design oriented Synthesizer plugin.

The DCAM Synth Squad has long been a favourite plugin bundle among music producers. With the release of Strobe 2 in 2015, these well-known plugins are no longer available in this bundle but as single product. 3 years after the release of Strobe 2, the next generation of Cypher Synthesizer is available.

Cypher 2 features the same powerhouse capabilities of the original but features a wide range of new modern features like more modulation options, effects effects, bigger GUI and full support for the MPE standard. Although the developers have kept users waiting with this release (1 year in the private beta), one can say that Cypher 2 is a nice evolution of the original plugin.


Cypher2 is designed for deep sonic exploration and expressive performances. It features a vast range of sound design tools and over 1300 sounds, including 500 MPE-optimised presets. Experience an unparalleled level of expression through analogue-modelled oscillators, waveshaping and thru-zero FM.

Our signature TransMod modulation system, now upgraded for Cypher2, ensures that every session with this premium synthesizer is a sound design adventure.


  • Analogue-modelled expressive synth.
  • Diverse library of 1300 expertly crafted presets (800 2D, 500 5D).
  • Optimised for both MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) and traditional MIDI controllers.
  • 3 analogue modelled oscillators, FM and audio-rate modulation.
  • Twin analogue modelled filters with 6 circuit models each.
  • State-of-the-art 5D step sequencing & arpeggiator.
  • 30 modulation-ready effect modules.
  • TransMod: intuitive modulation for powerful sound manipulation.
  • Scalable vector interface for retina/4K.

FXpansion Cypher2 is available now for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) for $199 USD from FXpansion and any online retailer.

Users of the original DCAM Synth Squad can upgrade for only $79 USD until September 7th (regular $99 USD), and users of Strobe2 can cross-grade for the same price during the sale.
