Tronsonic's new experimental performance synth is a work in progress 07/12/11
Tronsonic is showing the prototype version of a new Azimuth Generator Synth for or kontakt 4.2.2 and EXS24 on YouTube. It's a synth split into 3 main parts - bass, mid range buzz saw, noise (on f#1) and a high saw.
Tronsonic tells us that it is designed to be a very analogue sounding experimental performance synth - split into parts not only for playing convenience but for inspiration. Here's the details directly from Tronsonic ...
The bass synth oscillator comes from a modified square wave from a 50s valve signal generator - distorted using the even harmonics of several vintage valves and given a raspy tone by adjusting the azimuth (angle) of the tape heads on the tape recorder it was recorded to.
The tape signal was blended with identical non-tape saturated samples to provide this unique virtual oscillator.
The noise signals appear on f#1 only, and are a blend of pink and white noise (the latter widened with a spring reverb).
The mid section is a modified saw wave from an analogue modular - transformed using modulation, valve distortion and tape saturation into a buzz saw.
The high saw is from a moog source, recorded to tape.
This is from the proto pack, with over 100 patches for esx24 and kontakt.
There will be more oscillators, waveforms and patches available in the future. Pricing and Availability:
