Octopus Owner

Purchased Octopus last night from Linplug. It’s a hybrid FM and additive synthesis. The user interface reminds me of Star Trek the Next Generation.

Anyway, it has a lot of nasty FM sound effects in combination with making odd harmonics by changing the additive levels, and you could import wav files for more odd combinations. I’m personally not a big fan of clean FM synthesis, never owned a DX-7, neither liked Ableton’s Operator, but this is a very good FM approach. Gritty sounds are more fun.

So inspired by this synth I put aside the other projects and I’m now working on Nocturnal Digits, a combined future hiphop and minimal techno compilation! More later.
