My approach to synths & patch design.
If you’ve seen other sound packs out there, they usually come with names that suggest certain genres or famous producers & bands. My sets are called the “Jexus Soundset” because my philosophy and the way I look at this matter is different. Whether a patch sounds “ambient”, “industrial” or “Vangelis-like” is not necessarily a fixed characteristic coming from the patch itself. In majority of cases it is the result of the chords that a player decides to use, the tempo in which the patch is played, the envelopes (attack / release times), or the post-processing that the artist is using (EQ, reverb, tapes), and so on.
My mission is to give you a wide variety of timeless sounds that will inspire, make you look at the synth in a different light and let you sound like no one else or any band you’ve heard. Some patches are traditionally-structured, some offbeat; they’re the result of me having fun with the instrument and trying to find its limits. However, the one element that all my patches have in common is that they are ready-to-use in music and can serve as starting points that will take you into various directions; you can find the textures or dynamics that you like and fine-tweak them to suit your exact taste or purpose. If a valuable idea is there in the patch, the road to facilitate your work & unleash your creativity is now wide open.
► if you’re looking for a collection of “bread & butter” as well as cinematic and “offbeat” sounds;
► if you prefer original-sounding patches rather than recreations of classic synths or famous bands;
► if you need fast access to “template” patches that save you the effort of deep mod-matrix diving;
► if you need various textures and dynamics that can be quickly adjusted to your taste;
► if you’d like to hear sounds that make use of every module or engine feature of your synth;
► if you want to transform the synth you think you knew into something you didn’t expect possible;
► and finally if you want to learn by reverse-engineering some tricks you might have missed;
Then you’ve come to the right place.
