Sound Dust has announced the release of a new soundset for the Diva virtual analog synthesizer by u-he.
Friction features a collection of 170 presets that look for beauty and cinematic atmosphere in filth and wrongness.
The starting point for FRICTION was early homemade ‘industrial’ synth pioneers such as Suicide, Vice Versa, Cabaret Voltaire, Fad Gadget – not forgetting the awesome and groundbreaking Throbbing Gristle. (see TG approved demo track United)
FRICTION embraces the limitations and grist of the classic synths that DIVA emulates so well and melds them into something new and impossible, and impossibly lovely.
Every patch has warping transformations assigned to mod-wheel and after-touch for dynamic expressive control. All patches pre tagged for DIVA and Komplete Kontrol
Friction costs £25 GBP. Until March 18th you can save 20% off with coupon code GRISTLE at checkout.
A free demo pack with a small selection of presets is available to download.
