Description: Last week, Eventide Audio and Newfangled Audio launched Generate, which offers revolutionary chaotic generators for creating otherworldly and bottomless sounds.
At the heart of Generate are five chaos generators that create an oscillator that goes from pure sine wave to overwhelming chaos, with area to explore in between. The chaotic generators can then be triggered via the Buchla 259 Complex Waveform Generator, Animated wavefolder, or Fractal wavefolder, each of which gives the sound its own flavor. Inspired by legendary synthesizer designer Don Buckla, the bass gate in the synthesizer has pole and resonance parameters to truly convey your sounds to depth.
The Generate Chaotic Oscillator has five different modes: Double Pendulum, Vortex, Pulsar, Discharge and Turbine. The oscillators can be used for EQ, Chorus, Delay, Reverb and Limiter effects, which can be combined to control the sound to your liking.
The chaotic synth boasts a variety of modulation options, with two envelope generators, two LFOSs, a sample generator and hold / random, an 8-step sequencer, and MIDI / MPE sources capable of modulating every single parameter. This equates to 493 possible simultaneous modulation routing through the main page with an intuitive graphical interface that allows you to quickly fix sources and destinations. If you’re not the type to dive headlong into the abyss, you’ll be pleased to know that Generate includes over 450 presets with patches created by renowned artists and sound designers.
