The Analogue Shaman who is solely answerable for our twisted 303 bank in the ATC-1 and one of my partners in crime on the "Analogia Project CD-ROM," S.E. produced for EMU, brings his imaginative and culminant programming skillz directly to bear on our SE-1X. Think detuned oscillators, free-ranging ring modulation, homeric hertz, internecine basses, diving and rising again 3rd envelopes, primogenial L.F.O. pulses, tricky modwheel routings, brooding messiness and deadliest of all (my personal favorites) Scroggins' trademark old school Hiphop 808/909 styled kicks and synthi snares.
My boy came to do work. "And so it came to pass in those days, copious with the consolatory aorma of midnight oil burning, that the auroral Scroggins Synquence Bank was issued forth from the absense of all else: The Sonic Void."
I couldn't miss you more Brian. Peace always brother.
Wth the introduction of our new NovaMusik partnered synth, the "RED EYE" came two fresh sets of patch banks: Diademer and Infared. Bank 5 "INFARED" is the lovechild of a most brilliant sound designer who will continue to remain nameless, due to reasons that must also remain veiled. This man knows his Arps and his Junos and his Techno; very clever and inspiring voicings make this "patch-work" an essential compliment for your SE-1(X) patch library.
The second of the NovaMusik partnered synth banks, Diademer features the work of Jason Samonik (who had produced some outstanding raw omega demos for NovaMusik), and yours truly Marc St. Regis. It pulses with LFOs locked to clock, grinding basses, brutally detuned leads, moody orchestrals and some haunting hinting FX. Jason initiated this bank. I came in (at the end) just to edit and plain got carried away; a direct result of my tutelage with the Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan's vintage organy Roland, Arp, kooky Crumar synths and dude's programming smartness. Liked those SPM people... we learned some things in Chicago about life, love, pizza, dominant squarewaves, the importance of delayed vibrato, degrees of separation, French/Acadian/Cajun swamp drainers (servants of the One), how much I love my kids... God.
