Patchpool has released Arrows, a soundset by Simon Stockhausen for the ArcSyn synthesizer instrument by SPC Plugins.
This soundset deeply explores this unique synth, unfolding it’s raw and untamed timbres, it’s lush and embracing pad sounds, it’s dark drones and futuristic textures, expressive leads and intricate tempo-synced sequences, wondrous soundscapes, one-finger-chords, ambient miniatures, brass sounds, keys, crystalline bells, delicate sweeps, punchy basses and plucks and it’s expressive vowel filter making for some very human sounding vocal sounds.
Inter-modulating LFOs and well structured LFO-sequences breathe a lot of life into these sounds which can be used for a wide variety of styles as the numerous audio and video examples demonstrate. In quite a few patches all 16 slots in the modulation matrix were used to create complex modulation routings and provide as much user control over a patch as musically sensible.
All patches have the modulation wheel assigned, most also use aftertouch and velocity in order to provide expressively playable synthruments.
