It started out with classic vintage instruments, Casio SK1 and an Alesis HR16, taken into the lab and circuit bent. They were opened up, adding switches, hard wiring new controls that altered them into monsters. Once completed, they were sampled and multisampled into tube mic preamps. The switches and knobs caused the instruments to produce new textures, drones and multisampled pitches. The sounds that were produced were analyzed, mapped, tuned, and looped to create new, more flexible instruments in the digital realm. Synthesis was added: envelopes, filters, LFOs, and an effects engine. The result is 5 new CircuitBent Rack Extensions by Meeker FX, included in this bundle.
All of these instruments feature a few standard waveforms but predominantly the sounds are tremendously tweaked but musical and flexible.The circuit bending community is a collection of creative thinkers, as are the members of the Reason community. We think differently and embrace sound design through various connections. Now these two worlds collide with these user friendly devices. Each instrument comes with over 100 patches and combinators.
