Dystopia-Sound pack for TAL Sampler

Available at

"Welcome to Dystopia, a carefully and lovingly crafted selection of dark sounds for the amazing TAL Sampler.
Inspired by recent happenings in my own life, events of 2016 - which to be fair was a pretty shitty year, and the general state of the world we live in.

More demos are coming!

The pack contains 84 patches and over 400Mb of original, raw sample data generated with a range of synthesis/re-synthesis techniques and manipulated field recordings.

This sample data is contained in a separate folder in raw form for use in other synths/samplers if you wish.

The patches are intended for use in dark, dubby, bass-orientated genres, ambient, experimental, Drum & Bass or wherever your imagination is led.

Included are:
10 basses, digital, subby and a few deep reece patches
24 chords/stabs, think dark dub and old skool jungle
18 FX/drones/textures, eerie dirty backgrounds and beds.
3 leads,
3 loops,
28 pads, warm, dusty, saturated or cold, harsh and digital.

Yup, I like making stabs, pads and textural drones. :)

f0cus packs are deliberately kept fairly small so a great deal of care and attention is put into every patch with no fillers. Despite the amount of time and work which goes into the packs the price is kept at a level which should be affordable by most people, including bedroom producers just starting out. Many more f0cus packs coming in 2017 for TAL synths and more.

Empty Vessel is my only job as a one-man company operating wherever my laptop, my Zoom H5 and an internet connection happen to be wandering around the beautiful country of New Zealand and beyond. As such, I very much appreciate your support in purchasing packs and allowing me to continue doing what I love and making more sounds for you to use in your music.

All the best,

"I made a video where I demonstrate and talk about one of my favourite synths, the Ensoniq VFX-SD, my first vintage synth. I walk and talk through some of my own patches as well as some presets and then I make a new sound. I hope you enjoy it.

". . . as I was preparing for a skype tutorial I'll be giving tomorrow ,revolving around the Buchla 250e Arbitrary Function Generator, I couldn't help thinking about the way Rube Goldberg's inventions revealed cascading situations that triggered new shifts in the structure.

Both bands are fed independently into 2 channels of DOEPFER A-132-1 Dual VCA. The envelope follower CV signal from 2 BARK bands control 1 VCA channel each. Adn the signals are routed directly into the Audio Interface."

TR-707/Juno 6/Prophet 6/Bigsky - A Creepy Carpenter Christmas

Published on Dec 22, 2016 Jae Ryan

"I recently had my Prophet 6 modded to accept a wider range of voltages on the trigger input! This is fantastic for me as the Pro One has always been my dream synth and though this one is polyphonic it gets me close enough to that sound! I picked up a 707 yesterday that is in mint condition with the original Roland batteries still inside AND still working (don't worry there was no leakage!) I wanted to do a very minimal film score type thing and this is the result that came out of one take. Somewhat inspired by Mr. Carpenter but also nowhere near as good. It's just a vibe. A crunchy, analog, cassette, boring, old school vibe!"
