I created this instrument by sampling my modular synthesizer. I’ve started building my modular setup last year and are slowly but surely growing it. The sound comes from the Mutable Instruments ‘Plaits’ which is being modulated by both the Mutable Instruments ‘Stages’ & the Pico DSP. If I had to categorize the sound of my instrument I’d say it’s a multifunctional synth. I’ve created my own script for it which allows the user to control the Cutoff, Reverb & Distortion amount. I’ve also included my own graphics to make it look the part. This will be the first of many unique sounds from my modular synthesizer and I hope you like it! I’m truly excited to become part of this community!
PS: I’ve created a .NICNT file as well so you can load it up from the Library tab.
All the best,
Nick / Husman

1980s Secondary School Computer Club Synthwave
The sounds in the library reminded me of 8-Bit computers, particularly the Commodore 64 SID chip which I had a lot of experience with when making the From Bedrooms To Billions soundtrack. For my demo track I made a piece of Systems Music based around patterns of increasingly shorter lengths along with some randomisation. I'm quite pleased with the result. It sounds like Synthwave being performed by a 1980s secondary school computer club, which is certainly a specific genre. Only uses sounds from the library. No effects used other than a SEM LP filter sweep for the intro and and some light mastering.
