Our intrepid explorers have uncovered yet another relic from yesteryear... some military equipment they have salvaged from a bygone age which we have taken apart and modified to create a(nother) unique and unusual synthesiser.
We've managed to modify this old kit to give seven mixable oscillators, each one individually tunable using thumbwheel controls and a DETUNE control to add depth. With FM and AM and a LO-FI control that reduces sample rate and bit-depth, 130p is capable of a wide range of sounds from the abstract to the extreme and as capable of prog leads, basses and soft pads to bizzare, retro noises, machine drones and effects that wouldn't be out of place in an old British sci-fi movie and a perfect complement for the other MLMs.
The two banks of wavfeforms are assymetric as shown on the panel - the 'sine' bank is not what you'd expect of a pure sine wave, instead having a 'buzzier' and 'fizzier' sound while the 'sawtooth' bank has, thanks to analogue rectification, an irregular shape and harmonic structure giving 130p a unique source sound with poly or mono playback. And there's the LO-FI control to bit crunch those raw oscillators.
With two resonators adapted from the Novalite, we've added LFO modulation for the creation of severely retro phase sweeps which, with the 'Mellow' filter, allows a positively unique range of antique and truly odd sounds to be created.
And there's the 'Serendipity' button, pioneered by by HS for Kontakt, that will create patches at random which you can modify to your own taste and requirements while the ARTIC(ulation) switch allows you to phrase playback using a number of selectable controllers.
