«Explorer» is a collection of 50 experimental but usable presets for Moog Grandmother: 12 Leads, 10 Basses, 9 Plucks, 10 Arps, 6 Drones, 3 Chords.
It includes aggressive, bright, detuned, freaky, noisy, atonal, metallic, generative, evolving, rhythmic timbres.
This soundset is opposite to my previous one, «Analog Classics», where I made more regular/basic/classical timbres. In «Explorer» bank of presets, I tried to dive deeper in a modular nature of Grandmother and get most interesting and exciting results.
The patches are suitable for many genres: Techno, Ambient, House, Deep, Progressive, Trance, Minimal, IDM, Downtempo, Lounge Chill Out, Electronica, Dark/Noise, Industrial, Breakbeat, Drum and Bass, and many others.
The soundset is presented in the form of PDF-Document. Each page contains notes that explain how the patch works, what parameters worth tweaking during the playback, how to develop the timbre during a performance. If you make all the settings consciously and try the things mentioned in the notes, you will learn lots of things about the synth and discover its true depth.
Each patch has an audio example, it helps to understand how a patch is supposed to sound.
To recreate these patches you need up 8 patch cords.
You should also install firmware v1.1.3 or higher to have access to all settings used in this soundset.
