Inear Display has launched its new drone synthesizer plugin Lancinantes.

The software synth plugin has no no amplitude control envelope, allowing its oscillators to run freely, generating a constant sound.

Three special additive oscillators are layered, allowing the creation of chords that can be conformed to a melodic scale.

The oscillators are built around harmonic combinations where each partial has a random amplitude modulation applied to create perpetual subtle variations. New sets of harmonics can manually be regenerated at will.

A mixer section allows you to adjust individual oscillators levels as well as the amplitudes of a sub oscillator and a white noise generator. The mixer output then goes through a resonant filter, an overdrive, a delay, and a reverb to further shape the sound.

Most of the settings can be set to random values thanks to a versatile randomizer section.

Of course, the real fun starts when you automate the controls and run Lancinantes through your favorite effects…
