The combined EBM (Front 242, Neon Judgment, etc) + Horror Movie music theme may make it seem a strange patch bank but, as is my style, I build sounds that are open to broad usage so they are versatile. The idea is that these are like the colors in the tube, it is up to you how you use and mix them. Grey and Dark Blue are useful even in Pop.
Deliberately veering away from being just another analog emulation patch bank, I have focused a lot on Phase Modulation (CZ-1000) and Frequency Modulation (DX-7) as the synthesis method. This is fitting too as many of the EBM acts were using the new “hard” sound that these devices delivered to great effect. Even today, FM is a big part of the sound of Industrial dance acts.
Audio Demos (in videos)
I asked the ever-wonderful Slava of EBM band FHTH to knock up a real modern EMB track using only Thortfulness sounds in Reason and he completely knocked it sideways with Visions Of Future World
My background was in EBM/Industrial as I started in that form under the name Aeroplastic Voice. In these two demos, I revisited that form a little.
