– For those bored of the same old synth sounds,
Newfangled Audio's Pendulate offers something truly new – and free. Most synthesizers sound
similar because they’re based on the same technologies. Pendulate is refreshingly different – a
chaotic monosynth that uses a brand-new oscillator technique to create previously unheard
sounds – biting basses, searing leads, and gritty textures. Pendulate, distributed by Eventide,
is available for immediate download free of charge.
Pendulate is based on the physics of a double pendulum. What initially looks like randomness
contains underlying patterns, interconnectedness, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, and self-organization. When designing the Pendulate oscillator, great care
was taken to bring out these underlying patterns. The result is an oscillator that can smoothly
fade from a sine wave to total chaos, with an expanse of territory to explore in between.
Pendulate’s chaotic oscillator is matched with a wavefolder and low pass gate inspired by the
ideas of legendary synthesizer designer Don Buchla. These three modules – oscillator,
wavefolder, and gate – combine to make previously inconceivable sounds.
Every parameter in Pendulate’s three modules can be modulated by an included Envelope
Generator or LFO, or by MIDI and MPE sources. The innovative modulation interface allows
users to easily and quickly patch any combination of sources to any destination, creating
sounds that compel the listener to move with them."
