Create Gary Numan-like synth lines, Theremin like pads, broken detuned analog synths, or more spooky warbly effects with this original sounding synth, based on 24 human whistle samples.
This instrument is slow, designed for horror and Halloween atmospheres and textures, although it also suits ambient productions, trip-hop, downtempo – any any other genre you want to throw at it.
Because the instrument is based on samples of human whistling, it has an organic quality that makes it feel slightly analog. A few adjustments to the rack controls produce a wide variety of textures and timbres.
There are two version of the synth; one with adjustable attack, and one with adjustable Frequency Modulation (FM). The adjustable FM version creates more theremin-like sounds when the FM is turned down; the adjustable attack version is generally closer to an analog synth sound.
This pack also includes the effect device ‘Pitch Wobble Delay’, which can create effects that range from subtle pitch randomness to spacey freakout warbles; this device can also be used on other instruments to give unstable delays.
The whistling we recorded for these samples was random, idle whistling done at the end of a recording session by a musician while the mics were still on. We asked for something with no particular tune; the kind of whistling people do when they’re focusing on something else, or busy working. The samples have a light, breathy quality that, when stretched and processed, turned into a warm fuzz.
