Software Coming soon on patchpool: Arrows for SPC ArcSyn - pre-order now

I've just released my first soundset for SPC ArcSyn:

Arrows for SPC ArcSyn deeply explores this unique synth, unfolding it's raw and untamed timbres, it's lush and embracing pad sounds, it's dark drones and futuristic textures, expressive leads and intricate tempo-synced sequences, wondrous soundscapes, one-finger-chords, ambient miniatures, brass sounds, keys, crystalline bells, delicate sweeps, punchy basses and plucks and it's expressive vowel filter making for some very human sounding vocal sounds.

Inter-modulating LFOs and well structured LFO-sequences breathe a lot of life into these sounds which can be used for a wide variety of styles as the numerous audio and video examples demonstrate. In quite a few patches all 16 slots in the modulation matrix were used to create complex modulation routings and provide as much user control over a patch as musically sensible.

All patches have the modulation wheel assigned, most also use aftertouch and velocity in order to provide expressively playable synthruments. You can view/download the PDF for Arrows with more details, the licence agreement and the patch list including playing tips and detailed descriptions for each patch here.

  • 102 presets (including 3 variations) in the following categories:
    *Soundscapes - Drones - Textural – 28
    *Sequencer – 19
    *Pads – 12
    *Leads – 8
    *Synth - Brass - Keys - Sweeps – 11
    *Bells - Plucks - Stabs – 7
    *Bass – 6
    *Drums / Percussion – 4
    *Sound FX / SciFi – 7

    *Price: € 25 EUR
    *Delivery: Zip via E-Mail

Product page.

All demos were produced entirely with ArcSyn using only patches from Arrows, no post-processing was applied apart from a limiter on the outputs and some volume automation, if several instances of ArcSyn were used in a track. Only one track uses external reverberation as mentioned in the track title.


More videos for this set and some ArcSyn tutorials can be found in this youtube playlist:

Thank's for reading!

Improvising with a dark and edgy pad from Arrows, 1 instance of ArcSyn and a limiter:


EDIT (a day later):

I knew from the start that the vocal filter in ArcSyn is something special, so today I explored it some more and came up with this vocal patch, Tuvan throat singing on acid, this synth can sing :party: :party: :party:

mprovising with a single instance of ArcSyn using the preset Tuvan Meditation, modwheel action for additional vibrato/distortion, aftertouch introduces the sub-octave.


EDIT (3 days later)

Haven't had so much fun jamming with a synth for long, here is a little evening synth funk impro with 2 layered patches for the bassline, one of them also played in the higher register for inserts - and the main lead Dirty Benny:

Two fresh patches from Arrows in an ambient improvisation, audio and video, they slightly differ because some random modulators are involved:


EDIT (a day later)

This synth delivers, incredible low end, punchiness, tightness, glitch-ness, silk, mayhem, craziness and a lot of fun. Two fresh patches in a brief ambient groove sort of thing.


EDIT (3 days later)

Three ArcSyn patches from Arrows in a slightly dark Monday morning contemplation:

EDIT (a little later than the above):

And another two arrows in a more up tempo jam:

Two fresh demos with Arrow-presets:

This is an argument between 3 presets:

...and I had to drown this FM Animal in some Eventide Black Hole reverb:


EDIT (a day later)

Two fresh Arrow-patches in a slightly nostalgic electronic impression:


EDIT (later later)

Just finalized this patch and had to play a little impro with it live on video - Penta Waltz, tweaking the modwheel on the fly.


EDIT (much later)

Three arrows in three ArcSyns:

Further exploration of formants and overtones in ArcSyn - two fresh patches in a slightly mysterious harmonic contemplation:


EDIT (later that day):

A little jam with a fresh sequencer patch from Arrows:


EDIT (next day)

Improvising something slightly dark and ambient with a single patch from ArcSyn Arrows:


EDIT (later/later)

Four fresh patches from Arrows in a chilly 7-8 groove:


EDIT (much later)

Here is a little lullaby featuring two fresh patches from Arrows:

Something a little spooky: improvising with the patch Wolves Cry.

short description from the PDF/patchlist:

The glissando range in OSC1 is velocity sensitive (ENV2), so is the envelope modulating the shape/timbre of all 3 oscillators. AT introduces vibrato, MW introduces OSC3 which adds ring modulation glissandos to the sonic picture.

EDIT (later)

Two fresh patches in action in a rather sick beat, Drum Trio meets Frozen Brain.

Short descriptions from the PDF:

Drum Trio
Three oscillators compose a drum trio sequence in 4/4, the FX section is running in parallel mode, so FX1 processes the kick drum, FX3 adds delays to snare/hi-hat and FX processes both signals. MW introduces slightly randomized, tempo-synced filter modulation.
MW modulates OSC shape in both oscillators and increases cutoff/decreases resonance in both LP filters, AT introduces pitch modulation (via LFO 7/8), PB is set to +/- 12 semitones.


EDIT (later later)

Improvising with the patch Accelerator:

The finishing line for Arrows is just around the next corner, any fence-sitters should pre-order soon, if they wanted to save some cash. ArcSyn rocks!

Every soundset needs one last demo, so here it is - 4 instances of ArcSyn using 4 finalized presets in a polyrhythmic ambient groove track, if you spot the 1 somewhere, let us now (I know it's there somewhere)

This set will be released within the next 2 days.
