Cyclebox Fux Pad

An Intellijel/Cylonix Cyclebox sampled in four velocity layers....

The story

The Intellijel/Cylonix Cyclebox is one of my favorite eurorack modules. It’s a wavetable oscillator that definitely was not held by it’s mommy. It’s great for sound design and rhythmic noise pads, but it’s also quite musical. I thought it would be a great subject to try out with the Kontakt sampling method you all are using for the Piano Book project. Four layers–from warm and chill to Moog-through-a-Marshall-amp–are selected via velocity.

  • This sounds like an Organ on steroids

    This sounds like an Organ on steroids. You can see in the mapping editor how the 5 layers have been blended, but the crossover isn't quite enough for it to be really playable. I think two separate patches with just two/three layers to each could be a good way to simplify this pad and make more playable sounds from it. Overall It has a Vox organ quality to it underneath the distortion, but it's not quite my kind of thing, but someone will love this!

  • Extreme variation in synthy wonder

    Interesting synthy number with extreme variation across its velocity layers. This makes the playability a little difficult but with a step input approach the velocities could be easily tamed and some rather cool textures created from this. I like...
