de la Mancha Scylla

de la Mancha has released Scylla, a VST instrument capable of sample-playback combined with subtractive synthesis to produce a wide variety of sonic possibilities ranging from lush pads to far-out soundscapes and effects via scorching leads and chunky bass.

Scylla can be used for most any application and is only limited by the user’s imagination.

Scylla includes three different types of oscillators that can be modified to a wide variety of styles. Three built-in samplers can accommodate .wav audio samples, which can be played back in grain table, waveform, sample or single hit format. All the audio can be modified and modulated through LFO, volume and filter envelopes, Ring-Modulation, and Unison.

Scylla was co-developed with Singing Crane, the same pairing that developed Octav8r.

  • Each layer consists of:
    • Sample player capable of loading full-length samples and custom waveforms.
