Arctic Pad

Hardware synth patches passed through cassette tape.

The story

I tried to take inspiration from the ambient music scene and from musicians that use casette players and tape loops to create an evocative, warm instrument.

  • Beautiful

    A dreamy pad with a tiny bit of pitch drift. Instantly loved it.

  • Evocative of 80s sci-fi

    It sounds like it could be straight out of a synth. The sustained build reminds me a little of 80s sci-fi movie soundtracks, it's very evocative. The simple controls let you tweak the sound a little but it's reassuringly simple to use, and the default patch is a fine starting point. Good work, thanks.

  • Just what I needed...

    Been working on a piece of music for a few days, and didn't really like the sound of a lead part in it... Your patch fits perfectly! Cuts through the mix without having to tweak anything, plus I absolutely love the sound, no swells, but a perfect attack. Thank you so much for this one!
