Psychic Modulation sets Subconscious free

Psychic Modulation Subconscious

Psychic Modulation has re-released Subconscious, a dual arpeggiation sequence synth with oscillator crossfading, feedback modulation, and independent filter and amp envelopes for both oscillator sections.

Jack writes:

Subconscious which was recently discontinued featured several presets designed by Tim Conrardy who has passed away recently. This VSTi will be released as freeware in his memory. Tim was so kind to help me out by providing these wonderful presets, I believe it’s something that should be shared with the VST world. I really like his “Totem” presets found under ‘Rythmic Pads’.

Subconscious is available as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC and can be downloaded here.

I have extremely sad news – Tim passed away yesterday. I received an email this morning from his wife Diane, who told me that he was out hiking, passed out and did not recover. I will remember Tim for his generosity, patience and kindness. Many of you will have corresponded with him, listened to his music or have been inspired by the sounds that he created, many of which he generously gave away. On a personal level, I have fond memories of him showing me the stars in Death Valley.

I’m sure you will join with me in passing on your condolences to his wife and daughter.

He will be greatly missed.

Tim’s Atari MIDI World, AlgoMusic, Camel Audio (preset design & support)… I’m sure many of you will know him and have fond memories of him. I don’t have any words really…

My condolences go out to his family.
