Tim Exile Releases SLOO, A 48-Oscillator Voice Swarm Synth
Tim Exile has released SLOO, a new 48-oscillator voice swarming synth for NI Reaktor 6 that can spit out some diverse sounds that are full of movement. If you are curious, voice swarming is a process of each oscillator undergoing slight mutations that morph the sound. When there are 48 variations taking place at once, you can imagine how many different kinds of sounds that can be created.
- Standalone or plugin operation through Native Instruments’ Reaktor 6.1.1
- 103 original presets
- Support for Komplete Kontrol S-series keyboards
- 48 parametric voices with multi-shape oscillator, FM, multimode filter and tempo-synced parametric LFO
- Swarm pattern randomising with history and automation
- Parameter morphing
- Scales and scale automation
- Live quantise
What’s cool about this synth, in addition to his previous FLOWs step sequencer, is that it can be a live performance tool, providing features that include Live Quantise, Scale Maps and an Adaptive key mode. Even for producers that don’t plan to hit the stage immediately, having this kind of live integration could still be helpful for improvisation and to spark creativity.
SLOO is available for purchase for £39.00.
