Altair-4: 100 patches for SPC ArcSyn (no talking)

video by Richard DeHove

"A complete walkthrough of all 100 patches. Every patch includes a variation via the modwheel. Everything was played live in one take - no overdubs, MIDI or automation. See the little keyboard and modhweel bar which shows exactly what I'm doing. Of course there are absolutely no external effects or processing of any kind. (The little clicks you hear at the end of some sounds is me changing the patch before the last sound has completely finished).

This set homes in on some of the unique strengths of ArcSyn: the incredible 16-step LFO lane, self-generating randomizations, ambient evolving textures, moody keys and leads, and syncronizing multiple LFOs to create deep BPM-locked layers. You'll find sweetness here, weird modulating pads and textures, deeply ambient minimalist bleeps, heavy drums, and penetrating BPM bass.

Even after five years ArcSyn is still my favorite softsynth to program and play. I'm sure you'll see that come through with this soundset.
