Free stuff!

de la Mancha plugins


basic 65 is a monophonic synth, inspired by the classic 80s home computer, the Commodore 64 and its legendary SID chip. Building on the waveforms and signal path of this famous chip, basic 65 adds further features and options to take things a step further.

The double arpeggiator allows complex versions of that retro 8-bit game sound and the modulation options inspire experimentation via the mod envelope and 2 comprehensive LFOs. Pulse width modulation, ring modulation and oscillator detune/sync are key ingredients in the signature sound. Throw in some pitch drift, bit drift, a sprinkle of dirt and randomisation and you have a wide range of lofi, chiptune, retro-tastic sounds at your disposal.

This version is the update to the popular basic 64, redesigned from scratch, with many improvements, new features and all new presets. basic 65 was co-developed with sink, who also made the amazing presets.

Kavlin Haggis – I Need Your Love (Horribly Wrong Breakcore Remix)

I spent a couple of hours trying to warp Calvin Harris – I Need Your love with varying results so I could do a remix. By the time I had finished warping I got a bit bored and wondered to myself what it would sound like if I distorted the drums to fuck, sped it up to 190BPM and mashed a break beat onto it. This is what it sounded like.

Moved From Tumblr

So.. I’m really not too into this whole blogging thing as it is, but Tumblr just seemed like a site where you re-blog silly pictures and get spoilers for your favourite TV shows and movies. Which I really cba with tbh. Any ways, I’ve decided to post on here in future about whatever I’m doing musically and whatever else that I end up gibbering on about. Not that anyone really gives a fuck that is.

More updates as and when I can be bothered.


EDIT: It turns out you can import posts from tumblr. So I just did that.
You can also post from wordpress to tumblr. So I just did that too.
