Airer Synth

A synth made from plucking the bars of a clothes airer....

The story

I was doing the laundry and noticed that my new clothes airer made a low fat sound when “plucking” the bars.
Immediately thought that it would be a good synth and recorded it with my iPhone (sorry folks, no fancy mics).

Hits:
There’s a clean hit (root note on Ab2) that goes from bottom to B3. Octave 3 is a mix of a that clean hit + a distorted hit. From C4 to top there’s only the distorted hit (root note on Ab5).

Bonus flam hits on D6 an E6!

Pad:
Low drone from bottom to C3 and one shot notes from C3 to top.

On both patches, there’s a big reverb you can bypass and a LPF on your Mod Wheel (try it!).

Hope you enjoy it 🙂
