The front blackboard (white) has a pentagram and is magnetic to be able to fix the magnetized notes.
The soundbars are from Sonor, the keyboard is from Schimmel.

Mingle Mangler Synthesizer

video upload by Sharpe Sound Design

"Mingle Mangler is an upcoming synthesizer designed specifically for Decent Sampler. My synth was inspired by composers like Louis and Bebe Barron, Vangelis, and Hans Zimmer from films with deep atmospherics such as Forbidden Planet, Blade Runner, and Dune. It essentially makes finding unconventional sounds easy and fun by avoiding extensive menus and offering upfront controls that are MIDI controllable.

This virtual instrument is exclusive to Decent Sampler.
