The Unfinished Diva Oxide for u-he Diva
FANTASTiC | 30 June 2018 | H2P + NKSF | 3.78 MB
Diva Oxide is a signature soundset designed exclusively for u-he synths, featuring 128 patches for their analogue emulation synth, Diva. This is a gritty, atmospheric and analogue collection, aimed at bridging the sonic gap between techno and soundtrack music. Deep, dark and drifting, Diva Oxide is full of twisted, widescreen and minimal, analogue character.
Oxide is inspired in part by crossover techno artists such as Kiasmos, Jon Hopkins, Christian Loffler and Rival Consoles; as well as synth-driven composers like Paul Haslinger, Ben Frost, Cristobal Tapia de Veer, and Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow.
There are greasy, growling basses; nervous, lo-fi pads and padscapes; unpredictable, evolving sequences; plus, enigmatic keys, leads and synths. Put them altogether and you have a truly fresh, analogue soundscape at your fingertips.
Nothing is pure; all patches are on the edge of becoming unstable and unpredictable. And each patch has some extra intrigue programmed into the modwheel, for more dynamic control.
