A somewhat analog sounding patch that reminds me of the theme song from Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom.

Designed to emulate Clara Rockmore’s masterful theremin tone. The triangle LFO performs the vibrato while the glide takes care of the hand moving up and down in the air.
Not that wicked game. This one sounds like a video game tone, but creepy. Use as an effect or transitioner.

LFO modulated pitch with healthy resonance makes this spacey, weird patch mysterious.
Like it says, this lead tone takes advantage of PWM to fatten it up.

This one feels like it is sounding in reverse due to the longer attack time and quick cutoff. Even more backwards: play legato for shorter, abrupt sounds. Play staccato for slightly sustained sounds.

Two sine waves detuned and synced provide sizzle and rhythm with a smooth tone in the background. Named after my old friend, Gene.

Smooth, mellow pad. The filter starts out completely closed, with the envelope and keyboard range opening it up.
Soothing slow waves like the “surf” sound from the good old Casio SK-5.

In case you were wondering what it sounded like with everything set to “5” (or 50%)

Percussive plink. The LFO gradually brightens and darkens the tone for a dynamic performance.
A screamer with distortion and delay. Good attention grabber.
Sort of brassy, sort of stringey at the same time. The envelope controls the filter cutoff making it feel dynamic.

Filter resonance is set pretty high while the cutoff is modulated dramatically with an envelope. Starts out sounding like a percussive sound, then evolves into a pad-like sustain.

Barky tone good for percussive chords. With the filter resonance relatively high, the envelope quickly sweeps the cutoff while also modulating pulse width.

The low pass filter is used as the sound source with the resonance turned all the way up. Sweep the filter cutoff to go from low, meaty tones to higher-pitch laser sound.
Categories: sound effect
Rapid pitches descending into dark noise. Use this as a transition between song sections.

Haunting lead with panning and extra, unexpected voices
Categories: lead, sound effect
That “wow” sound comes from using oscillator sync together with envelope control of Oscillator 2’s frequency.

Woody and percussive, but still modern and synthetic on purpose. Great for high-range counterpoint.
