Sonicware Liven 8 Bit Warps - Chiptune Jam


"I'm very excited that the lovely people over at Sonicware were nice enough to send me a Liven 8 Bit Warps for free so I can make them some promotional material with it. I've spent a few days playing around with it and I've been really impressed with what I've seen so far.

At it's heart the Liven 8 Bit Warps is a wavetable synthesizer and sequencer designed to emulate the sound chips in old 8 bit computer and consoles like the Nintendo NES and Gameboy. All it's oscillators are built from tiny wavetables on just 32 samples long so they have a really gritty sound, they are even editable through the front panel by hand.

There are 4 different synth engines including an FM mode which is how I have made the drums for this track, with some harsh modulation and plenty of programming.

It has another trick up it's sleeve too which is a 4 track audio looper meaning I can load a pattern, record it into the looper and play it back along with other loops and/or the live pattern loaded into the sequencer. So plenty to build whole tracks, I have much more to explore too!"
