Latest Synth Patches

Broken by Ryan on Jul 12, 2016 TG77

Plucked sound mixed with bleating goat noise. Filter mapped to CC74. With filter frequency at minimum, sounds like a nice dark moving EP, but weirder.

Categories: plucked, detune, wobble

Long Horn by Ryan on Jul 12, 2016 TG77

Sounds nothing like a horn. Slow mellow mono voice with a swelling moving LFO.

Categories: ambient, mellow, sweep

WildKingDm by Ryan on Jul 12, 2016 TG77

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

Categories: melodic, mono

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.

Categories: theremin

Wicked Game by adam (synthlib) on Jul 07, 2016 ESQ-1

Not that wicked game. This one sounds like a video game tone, but creepy. Use as an effect or transitioner.

Categories: transition, weird

LFO modulated pitch with healthy resonance makes this spacey, weird patch mysterious.

PWM Lead by adam (synthlib) on Jul 01, 2016 Mother-32

Like it says, this lead tone takes advantage of PWM to fatten it up.

Revel by adam (synthlib) on Jun 30, 2016 Juno 6/60

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.

Categories: lead, reverse, strings

Radzic by adam (synthlib) on Jun 28, 2016 ESQ-1 1

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

Categories: sync, rhythmic

Padrick by adam (synthlib) on Jun 27, 2016 Juno 6/60

Smooth, mellow pad. The filter starts out completely closed, with the envelope and keyboard range opening it up.

Categories: pad

Surf by adam (synthlib) on Jun 23, 2016 Mother-32 1

Soothing slow waves like the “surf” sound from the good old Casio SK-5.

Number 5 by adam (synthlib) on Jun 17, 2016 Juno 6/60

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

Categories: weird, wobble

Percussive plink. The LFO gradually brightens and darkens the tone for a dynamic performance.

Categories: percussive

Carl by adam (synthlib) on Jun 15, 2016 microKORG

A screamer with distortion and delay. Good attention grabber.

Categories: distorted

StringnBrass by adam (synthlib) on Jun 14, 2016 ESQ-1

Sort of brassy, sort of stringey at the same time. The envelope controls the filter cutoff making it feel dynamic.

Categories: brass, strings

Squirly by adam (synthlib) on May 27, 2016 Poly 800

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.

Categories: sweep, pad, resonance

Bowser by adam (synthlib) on May 25, 2016 Juno 6/60

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

Categories: chords, resonance

Lasery by adam (synthlib) on May 24, 2016 Mother-32

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.

Swooshy by adam (synthlib) on May 23, 2016 microKORG

Rapid pitches descending into dark noise. Use this as a transition between song sections.

Categories: noise, sound effect, transition

Ghostly by adam (synthlib) on May 21, 2016 ESQ-1

Haunting lead with panning and extra, unexpected voices

Categories: lead, sound effect
