After more than 2 years since the release of the CATALIZ° granular sampler, Blinksonic has returned with a generative, autonomous, and multipurpose virtual synthesizer.

Based on 4 synth engines sequenced by a polyrhythmic program of 12 scaled or microtonal notes, COLLIDZ° offers a new paradigm around harmonic scores creation, melodic sequences programmation and real-time note interpretation.

COLLIDZ° basically aims to be a sequencer that runs pieces of (falling/climbing) squares launching gate events when they reach the bottom of a grid table. Finally, COLLIDZ offers some features that help to produce original melodic or rhythmic scores that are not as mechanical as expected, much more fluid and original at the end.
