Subject description: ...that will make my computer explode.
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

I want a MONSTER vst that is insane, with tempo sync in mind. I have Moog Modular V along with basically every well known free VST on the internet, as well as a modular environment vst host ( I can hook them up all crazy like ect.)

So, please, help me out I'm looking for something that is beyond insane and is rediculous and will make my computer explode. I'm making this post, because I want to see if anyone knows what I'm looking for.

I want something INSANE that will make my computer turn into like a space robot that will enslave humanity. I mean, something that is seriously really cool. Prefferably something experimental and totally insane, and not an emulation. I'm sick of this "analog simulation" crap. This is the 21st cenutry and I want a space synth/vocoder that modulates its modulations with pico-HFO's and tempo syncs your brainwaves, while re-synthesizing its CPU fluctuating oscillator until it explodes. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Hi,

Well I don't know if it is insane enough but have you looked at Absynth, you can get a free demo at http://www.native-instruments.com/forums.html?id=demoversions&L=1&ftu=ff765a434f64b87

Thank you both. However, I'm not getting through to the "lucifer" vst. It seems to have fallen from devine-machine's product page. Thanks anyways though there are way too many VST's to make a sound choice.

How about reaktor 5 from Native Instruments.

Absolutely fantastic with some really weird stuff in the user library which contains hundreds of good instruments.

Demo also available on the NI site.

Reaktor - you can make your own exploding synths.

Tassman - very cool modular synth that weighs heavy on the Physical modeling side.

Tera - Virsyn's Tera is very modular and has all kinds of stuff. Use enough voices and your computer will explode or at least catch fire.

MAX/MSP - if you enjoy coding more than making music and want to do things that sonically only exist in the minds of mental patients.

well if you are looking for something huge with tempo sync capabilities then I have two great suggestions for you!

first i'd say, try out MASSIVE by NI. it has a powerful engine with additive oscillators, filters, FX and assignable envelope, step and LFO mod controls.

http://www.native-instruments.com/forums.html?id=massive

another suggestion would be Playa virtual instrument. it is an MPC style interface 16 assignable pads and a re-trig tempo sync function.

.. and for something a little more unusual and generative in nature, take a look at SYNPLANT. Truly an interesting little piece, the company I work at is actually using it for sound design.

MASSIVE by NI instruments for sure. extremelly powerfull.

Another one you may like to check out is Albino 3. found this great for makeing real hevay bass's

+1 Massive.

Though Reaktor is a lot of fun if you're into low-level sound mangling.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have to check some of those out sometime. A friend of mine is habitually upgrading his computer (he's even implemented liquid cooling) and I've been meaning to give some of the more CPU heavy programs a try on his system. In my opinion, even existing complex soft synths demand much more computing power than is available to the average musician- it's no fun having such a finite number of virtual patch cables that can be hooked up. Although, I should probably try something running at 4+ GHZ before I take too many stabs at the present level of affordable technology.

I've been digging into z3ta by Cakewalk (former RGC audio synth) more and really having a ball with it. might be a worth a look-see-listen...

glad to see this thread still kicking!

vurtbox is weird enough to set fire to your frontal lobes, right down to the overly useless UI.

gladiator 2 sounds great and is so different as to blow minds:
