RippleKrell (test 1)

Published on May 12, 2017 Bram Bos

"Testing my new work in progress: Ripplemaker

A modular 'West-Coast synthesis' playground, inspired by synths such as the 0-Coast, Phenol and the Kastle.

Following the experimental synthesis philosophy of people like Buchla and Serge, west-coast synthesis offers a very different approach from the traditional subtractive methods of Moog synths. It's much more about experimenting with additive timbres (hence the absence of a conventional filter) and the manipulation of CV signals.

This video shows a typical generative patch concept called 'Krell' (inspired by the soundtrack of the movie 'Forbidden Planet' 'composed' by Louis Barron). It's self-generating, so no sequencers or triggers are used here. But obviously Ripplemaker will be fully AUv3 compatible so you can do slightly more conventional/musical patches with it ;-)

Recorded in AUM with AUFX:SPACE reverb plugin."
