112dB has announced the release of Cascade, a synthesizer instrument inspired by the work of Austrian composer Peter Ablinger, who experimented in the late 1980’s with sound densification using 12 tape decks.

112dB Cascade

With Cascade 112dB aims to offer a new take on sound synthesis, enabling you to create sounds you could never create before.

Cascade is a combination of a classic subtractive synthesizer and a new method of synthesis, based on a complex delay network that can densify a sound up to 5832 times. That doesn’t mean that a sound you create with cascade will per definition sound ‘denser’. It can also be more lush and spacious, depending on the settings you choose.

What makes Cascade really unique however is that a sound can develop over time, adding extra dimensions to it. And that you can select the most interesting part of this development process as the part you want to hear.

Cascade features

  • 2 extremely fat oscillators.
  • Juicy analog style filters.
  • A new creative form of synthesis.
  • Especially good for: atmospheric soundscapes, grungy industrial sounds, hypnotic pads & strings.

Cascade for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX/standalone) is available for purchase for the introductory price of 99 EUR/USD until September 1st, 2016 (regular 179 EUR/USD).
