“It disgusts me … and I can’t stop thinking about it.”
—Nancy Wheeler

“Macabre and spellbinding. Appearing as if out of nowhere.”
—Mr. Clarke

A demonic organ drone machine full of horrifying ambiences and ethereal detuned pads. Inspired heavily by its namesake—as well as a fairly popular recent series on Netflix—this ensemble can get unruly. Be safe with your volumes.

Built with some pieces of a mystery synth from the user library that I once downloaded and tore apart. For the life of me I can not seem to locate that ensemble to give proper credit to the user. My apologies.

Also used in this ensemble:
BND Wavebender block by Colugo
Final Out from Michael Hetrick

V1.2 Updated GUI scopes and BitCrusher effect

if you want to automate the parameters of this thing in ableton (or maybe other daws) go to the ensemble properties, go to the connect tab, and raise automation max id to like 395

Amazing and unique sound. But I won't use it because it uses too much CPU for my little laptop, if you could optimize it it would be perfect !

Maybe the mystery synth is Aria by Dario Lupo? It sounds very similar to this.

Amazing instrument. Now I have a synth to fuel my Stranger Things Madness!!!! One thing, is it me or does it sound like left or right output channel is phase inverted from the other???? Maybe you did it for a reason???? Great work, thanks!!!

Thanks Brett! I took a look at your recommendation for the bit-crusher, but unfortunately that fix is a bit over my head it seems. I did replace the entire process macro with the latest version of the Euro Reakt stereo bit-crusher, though I am not sure anything changed (?) Either way, I uploaded V1.1 with this adjustment.

Very nice work. I love the LED knobs and the look in general. Great sounds as well, my favorite is snapshot 4. Unfortunately one bug-fix I recommend is to update the SRR macro in your bit-crusher, it seems you grabbed an old version. It's easy though, just replace the number "44100" with a SR.R pickup. This makes it work properly at any sample rate. Currently it will always affect the sound at higher rates, even when it's off.
