These timbres also work well for movie soundtracks, games, apps, digital art, sound art lives, VR landscapes – anywhere a dark atmosphere is needed.

🔮 Craft an entire ambient or cinematic track with just a few (or just one!) performances. Or, create a couple of albums with the entire soundset.

🎛 Each Performance features 4 Layers that can be mixed using the Vector Envelope joystick. Explore each layer individually or blend them for unique combinations.

🕹 The Vector Envelope joystick is, by default, in the middle position – all layers are mixed equally. You can also disable some layers by double-clicking on layers’ (A, B, C, D) buttons.

🟤 ModWheel opens all layers’ filters, enhancing the brightness of the sound.

The presets follow a unified (with some exceptions) mapping system for the 8 Mod Knobs/Macros:

🔸 1 – Closes all layers’ filters, creating a soft, dark, and dull sound.

🔸 2 – Alters the speed of the lanes, functioning in both directions.

🔸 3 – Introduces steps to the Sample Lane, resulting in a more varied timbre by blending additional waves.

🔸 4 – Generates Detune/Vibrato.

🔸 5 – Adds fast, plucky modulations, or alters envelope parameters, or shortens the Shape Lane.

🔸 6 – Reduces Gate level and/or shortens the Gate Lane, creating an abrupt and glitchy timbre.

🔸 7 – Introduces modulations via LFOs, typically affecting the filter or amp.

🔸 8 – Accelerates LFOs

🔹 True wave sequence 2.0 synthesis, extensive and deep use of unique Wavestate features, that make the presets stand out from other synthesizers (subtractive, wavetable, FM…)
