Patchpool has announced the release of Diversity 2, a soundset featuring over 100 patches for the Diversion synthesizer by Dmitry Sches.
As with the update version 1.3 Diversion was enabled to play samples, both in normal sampling- and granular mode, this soundset contains 1.35 Gigabytes of samples, half of which were created especially for this soundset, the other half borrowed from other patchpool libraries.
Organic and electronic textures and soundscapes, vocal textures, field recordings and acoustic instruments like woodwinds, brass, cello, guitars and chromatic/achromatic percussion instruments meet digital oscillators, by intermodulating these sources via ring modulation and FM synthesis new sounds are born, which can be diverse to the extreme. Ethereal textures and angelic whispers meet dark and disconcerting drones, vivid sequences meet minimalistic rhythms, warm pads clash with cold metallic sounds, pristine glass textures are absorbed by surreal and futuristic soundscapes, expressive leads are counterpointed with noises from another sound dimension.
Besides the sample content dozens of new single-cycle waveforms were created in- and outside of Diversion to expand the sonic palette of this library, complex modulation routings were used to create animated and expressive sounds usable for a wide variety of musical styles. All patches have the x/y-pad assigned, many also use Aftertouch. This enables the Diversionist to interact with the sounds and shape them expressively.
