"I'm truly blown away by the sounds Generate can make. It sounds very organic and real, like playing a hardware synth."
. Wire, It Hugs Back
"Generate has an animal quality that sets it apart from other synths. It's chaotic and alive, surprising and beautiful."
. Composer: Bombshell, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Bombshell
"You had me at "chaotic". This is going to be a secret weapon for synth-based score composers"
. Los Angeles, California-based multi-genre electronic rock project.

Marquee Chaotic Polysynth 

Take Chaos to the next level with Generate. Developed by Newfangled Audio, Generate is a marquee polysynth combining five revolutionary chaotic oscillators with all the features you’d expect in a first-class synthesizer. Create beautifully complex pads, warm moving keys, jittery sequenced basses, out-of-control leads, and 'oh my God' textures. 

Features

  • Novel chaotic oscillator has 5 types: Double Pendulum, Vortex, Pulsar, Discharge, and Turbine.
  • Wavefolders based on the Buchla 259 Complex Waveform Generator, Fractals, and a special Animated Equation.
  • Low Pass Gate based on the Buchla 292 adds controls for POLES and RESONANCE.
  • Modulate all controls with MIDI/MPE, two Envelopes, two LFOs, Sample and Hold/Random, and a Step Sequencer.
  • Innovative modulation UI allows modulation over every control from the main page, allowing up to 377 simultaneous modulation routings.
  • Innovative EQ, Chorus, Delay, Reverb, and Limiter effects to turn the sounds into magic.
  • MPE support allows amazing control from expressive controllers.
  • All mod sources have multiple outputs generated at once, as a modular synth should.
  • Modulation! Every mod output to every control means up to 551 modulation routes in an intuitive single pane.
  • Animations! The Double Pendulum, Wavefolder, and Low Pass Gate modules each have animations to show how each module responds to your input and modulation.
  • Three unique colour schemes to customize your look.
  • Over 450 Presets, including many renowned artists.
  • Helix generator mode is based on spirals, creating a bright chaotic sound. 
  • New Crescent generator mode is a bright with a clean clear tone.
  • Magma generator mode is smooth and warm, with a clear vintage tone, and is useful for making very playable sounds.
  • Support for new tunings via MTS-ESP. (This is a new tuning standard from ODDSound being implemented across the industry with backing from Aphex Twin.)
  • Master pitch modulation to the Pitch Bend knob. (This allows for vibrato which was an oversight that it wasn’t in 1.0.  It also allows for pitch envelopes and arpeggio style sequences when using the Sequencer.)
  • Generator Interval Parameter on a full-sized knob and made it a modulation destination. (This allows a bit more expression when sync is on, it’s more useful in the newer Generator types.)
  • Modulation to the LFOs, Envelopes, and S+H module. (This is a power user feature, but it really opens up the modulation system. Modelled after modular synths)
  • LOOP mode for the Envelopes, turning them into LFOs. (Functionally bringing Generate from 2 to 4 LFOs)
  • Modulatable Output Level control to the LFOs and Sample and Hold modules. Also added a Bipolar switch allowing them to be bipolar outputs. (More flexibility in modulation programming)

Create the Chaos

Generate is based on a set of chaotic generators. What initially looks like randomness contains underlying patterns, interconnectedness, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, and self-organization.

Each of Generate’s 5 chaotic generators brings out these underlying patterns and create an oscillator that can smoothly fade from a sine wave to total chaos, with an expanse of territory to explore in between. The musical textures created include distortion, harmonics, grunge, static, and noise. All of which can be predictably or unpredictably modulated.

Control the Chaos

Generate's chaotic generators are routed through your choice of a Buchla wavefolder, or novel Animated or Fractal wavefolders, each adding unique overtones. Followed by a low pass gate inspired by the ideas of Don Buchla. These modules combine to create a versatile and musical voice with its own unique flavour.

Modulate the Chaos

Every parameter in Generate’s voice can be modulated by a combination of two Envelope Generators, two LFOs, a Sample and Hold/Random generator, an 8 Step Sequencer, and MIDI and MPE sources. The innovative modulation interface allows you to easily and quickly patch any combination of sources to any destination, creating sounds that move, and which move you.

Effect the Chaos

Generate's voice is followed by an unparalleled EQ, Chorus, Delay, Reverb, and Limiter, all to launch your chaotic sounds into outer space or right into your listener's faces.
