Synthetic Rig 4

Do you dream of oscillators in your sleep? Does the idea of new CV cabling options make your heart skip a beat?

The front panel of a synthesizer is a work of art unto itself. Its very layout inspires new ways of working and thinking about sounds. That’s why synthesizer sound designers and CV enthusiasts are never satisfied with just one. Each new synth is a new sound, a new song and a new approach to creativity.

And if synths are musical candy for you, then the Synthetic Rig is candy shop with the sweetest sonic flavors you could ask for. A powerful collection of versatile instruments and effects, the Synthetic Rig includes top synths such as Parsec, eXpanse, Nostromo, ABL3 and many more. And for even more inspiration you’ll get your hands on hundreds of Combinator patches based on the included devices.

Master fundamentals in synthesis, control voltage routing, and sound design with almost 3 hours of instruction from Ask Video, included with the Synthetic Rig.
