H.G. Fortune releases The Dreammachine
H.G. Fortune has released The Dreammachine, a self running machine which can be transposed so this is ideal e.g. to provide backings of complex athmospheres and soundscapes for live performances.
The concept of the Dreammachine is based on very slow running LFO being used for wavesequencing and sound modulations. Thus realtime editing is not as one might expect it. – This is a machine for slow flowing motion of sounds.
The Dreammachine features
- Three dedicated parts: Bottom (Bass), Back/Pad and Sparkles providing quite complex athmospheres and soundscapes which is mostly determined by the sequence of waves.
- 24 step sequencer for waves for each part, each with it’s own tempo setting to get more variations among the three parts.
- 100 waves for each part included, loads other sf2 files as well.
The Dreammachine is currently available for the introductory price of 79 EUR. After a 1 month period it will be 99 EUR until December 31, 2008, after which the regular price of 119 EUR will kick in. A demo version is available for download from the product page.
