Waldorf Microwave XT + Oberheim Xpander + Korg MS20 + Arturia Microphreak + Chase Bliss

Who needs presets ?

Hybrid gorgeousness to get your creative juices flowing

for FULL version of Kontakt 6.7.1 and above


DUST ENGINE #1 is a delicious selection of hand-knitted sounds from classic hardware synths and modern gadgets for hybrid do-it-yourself gorgeousness. 

It's great for rich, lush and grubby pads, deep, really deep unctuous subs and bright gnarled keys and plucks.

Inside the easy-to-use interface are 3 cunningly curated, interlocking articulations (4 including the crackle generator) plus 2 randomizers for instant gratification and handy FX to quickly build the perfect sound for your sonic universe.

DUST ENGINE #1 is a liberation from preset hell that just wants to be played.


the sounds
A curated selection of different synthesis styles that SIT TOGETHER BEAUTIFULLY
Long evolving samples of every note with interesting loops, multiple velocity layers and unlikely happenings.

Waldorf Microwave_xt

Waldorf Microwave XT - articulation 1

A chunky glassy patch from this classic wavetable synth known for its early digital grittiness - this a synth that can cut through anything.

4 round robins with each iteration passed through a Chase Bliss Generation Loss MKII for organic burble.


Arturia Microphreak - articulation 2

An octave up dirty ping from the Noise Engineering algorithm of this small but mighty digital/analogue hybrid.

KORG MS20 + OBERHEIM XPANDER - articulation 3

A hybrid multi sample made from these two analogue beasties. Higher velocity gives you straight crusty MS20 tones (through Chase Bliss Generation Loss MKII), lower velocity adds a wired, spluttering fuzz halo from the Xpander.

Some handy controls to build your universe

All articulations.png


Sample start control + 3 volume faders, one for each articulation.

Noise controls.png


Two styles of noise to bleed into the signal - click icon to change from record crackle to grubby tape churn.


TAPE and GLUE controls

These controls beautifully interact to squash and breathe an organic, filthy wholeness into everything .

'Morning Pendle,
