New Circuit Bent Synthesizers

Circuit Bent Synthesizers

It started out with classic vintage instruments, Casio SK-1 and an Alesis HR-16, 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 multi-sampled into tube mic preamps. The switches and knobs caused the instruments to produce new textures, drones and multi-sampled 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 Circuit-Bent Rack Extensions by Meeker FX, included in the Circuit Bent bundle.

All of these instruments feature a few standard waveforms but predominantly the sounds are tremendously tweaked but musical and flexible.The circuit­bending 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 user­friendly devices. Each instrument comes with over 100 patches and combinators.

  • Samples from circuit-bent instruments
  • Flexible parameters and effects
  • Expertly crafted patches and sound design

The five Circuit Bent Synthesizers are listed below:
