Friction for U-He DIVA by Sound Dust



FRICTION applies the Sound Dust sound design aesthetic to U-He's amazing analogue soft synth DIVA and brings you 170 presets that look for beauty and cinematic atmosphere in filth and wrongness.


Huge weeping pads, elastic beat sync noise, murky weathered leads, deviant one finger atmospherics, organic heartbreak keyboards, West coast style uber modulations, glowering low end throbbing and earworming sound effects are all in the mix.

The starting point for FRICTION was early home-made 'industrial' synth pioneers such as Suicide, Vice Versa, Cabaret Voltaire, Fad Gadget - not forgetting the awesome and groundbreaking Throbbing Gristle. (see TG approved demo track United)

FRICTION embraces the limitations and grist of the classic synths that DIVA emulates so well and melds them into something new and impossible, and impossibly lovely.

Every patch has warping transformations assigned to mod-wheel and after-touch for dynamic expressive control. All patches pre tagged for DIVA and Komplete Kontrol

'..these are sounds that are hard to find even with a room full of classic hardware synths.' Paul Hartnoll - Orbital
