1. Rebel Technology Witch: SubTract Patch
First demo of our upcoming Witch, a patchable synthesizer in a compact format.

SubTract is one of the factory patches: a polyphonic Virtual Analogue synthesizer with 48dB resonant low pass filter, two assignable tap tempo LFOs, envelopes, FM, and overdrive effect.
2. Rebel Technology Witch: VoSim Patch
Rebel Technology Witch is a patchable synthesizer in a compact format.

Demo of the VoSim polyphonic synthesizer patch, which has high and low formants, two tap tempo LFOs and adjustable envelopes. The audio inputs are used for FM.

The first part demonstrates Performance mode, which allows for chords to be easily triggered and sustained.

In the second part an AKAI LPK-25 MIDI keyboard is used to play and sequence the patch in Expression mode, which gives continuous pitch control.
3. Rebel Technology Witch: WaveBank vs Ensoniq SD-1
Witch WaveBank meets the Ensoniq SD-1 classic synthesizer, thanks to a cheap MIDI to USB converter.

The Witch plays the lead synth track, at first receiving MIDI directly from the keyboard, then sequenced from the SD-1 which also plays the other parts: bass, pads and percussion. The Witch and SD-1 are passively mixed and direct recorded into a Zoom Q2N camera.

There are no effects on the Witch output apart from the built in delay, which is tap tempo synchronised to the sequencer track.

WaveBank Performance is a stereo morphing wavetable synth that you can load your own wavetables into. It is one of eight synth patches that comes with the Rebel Technology Witch, a patchable synthesizer in a compact format.

"The Witch is a compact and versatile polyphonic synthesizer.

The Witch can be used Standalone, with a MIDI Controller, Analog Sequencer, or MIDI Polyphonic Expression / MPE Controller. It comes with four different synth engines:

SubTract Virtual Analogue synthesizer with 48dB resonant filter
VoSim Voice Simulator formant synthesizer
WaveBank Morphing wavetable synthesizer
QuadSampler Sampler with peak filter
Each synthesizer engine is provided in two variants:

Expression Mode Continuous pitch control and MPE support
Performance Mode Discrete pitch control, standalone chords and classic MIDI support
Other features include two assignable tap tempo LFOs with continuously variable shapes and a powerful effects section.

As well as eight factory patches, the Witch is fully compatible with the OWL Library of more than 300 patches. What’s more, users can create their own patches using any of the supported DSP languages: Pure data, Max gen~, SOUL, Faust, Maximilian and C++.

The Witch has its own Synth Editor web application:

The release date for the Witch is July 29. Kits will be available from Befaco."
