This is the second instalment of the DRIFT series of instruments.
Simple at the front, complex behind the curtain. The business end is just 4 large knobs: Grist, ADSR, Morph and Space combine multiple functions for uncomplicated and intuitive sound design. A minimal interface beneath which lurks a maximalists desire to warp, bend and squash millions of new sounds into the aether.
Whereas DRIFT001 was interested in impossible keyboard tones that could be warped into strange variations, DRIFT002 looks at things from the other end of the telescope. Starting with rich and complex hybrid instruments made from combinations of analogue, real world and purely digital sources, DRIFT002 oozes deep with undulating filigree and patina.
Long, slow evolving patchscapes and gnarled polyrhythmic cinematica can easy by morphed into glistening keys, phosphorous leads or dark, dark basses.
New to DRIFT002 is a three way BPM synced tremolo system which adds extra movement and throb. Control and automate three custom volume LFOs to run at different speeds and different depths to build intriguing rhythmic shimmy…and who wouldn't want that ?
I am loving Drift 002 . Thanks for spending the time to keep putting these beautiful things out.'
