BENT features 256 sounds harvested from a variety of customized circuit bent instruments. We recorded an exhaustive collection of bent vintage educational toys and toy keyboards that were all hand-built by sound designer Ivo Ivanov over the course of five years.
Everyday sounds you may hear in a construction site, warehouse, traffic, crowd, factory, subway, garden, park, office or forest have been identified, performed and captured for integrating into the modular synth. These raw & unprocessed sounds were carefully edited to highlight their percussive qualities, making them an ideal counterpart to the electronic modular sound palette.
Z2040 4-Pole Prophet 5 VCF is a powerful 4-pole low pass filter with a similar core to that of the ssm2040 filter chip used in the prophet 5 rev2 synthesizer. both the z2040 discrete circuit and the ssm2040 integrated circuit are based on a us patent assigned to oberheim electronics in the 70s.
Circadian Rhythms moves modular synthesizer technology another step forward by gluing all the pieces of a system together. Each module or voice can now be programmed to play straight from an intelligent eight channel, 512 step master trigger sequencer made for composers looking to make music on the modular.
