Misty Valley - blurred sound colors - is a Synthesizer for NI Reaktor (requires version 6.3.0+)
The concept of Misty Valley came about when I was trying to create a “blurred” synthesizer sound as part of my musical project Oblik Lines. By “blurred” I mean those intriguing synthesizer sounds you can find in such music by Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Rival Consoles or Alessandro Cortini, to name a few. These sounds can be described as unstable and imprecise, which makes them more human/organic. I took inspiration from the analogue synths from the late 70s/80s and designed this subtractive synthesizer with just two oscillators. Other functions within modules are then added to emphasize this blurring effect. These include: the Drifter, which replicated the pitch instability of tape machines; and the Tape Sampler to add tape noise in the signal chain to reinforce the LoFi/Organic feel.
As you may have guessed, Misty Valley is not a clean or multi-purpose synthesizer, rather it focuses at creating a very distinctive and unique misty sound.
Misty Valley, includes 75 presets that I have split in 4 sound banks:
- Blurred noises: an overload of noisy sounds
- Unstable textures: dreamy / soaring sounds with a touch of noise
- Almost clean: classical analog sounds with some noise
- Noise beds: atmospheric noise pads
There's also a standard "By Categorie" folder for quick search.
