Two Monark-based Reaktorblocks making use of those fat generators and filters for an old-fashioned ACIDIC feeling.

TALKBOX uses two LFOs coupled with Infinite Phi’s cascade filter to get that “talking” effect in twelve different presets ranging from quite voice-like to grungey bass-patterned not-at-all voice-like. There are are a few more variations in there but I’ve left it for you to find them!

KICKER is a similar set-up substituting Niji’s KICK for the cascade filter. WHY? Well, I have always found the kick drum the most boring of instruments so I’ve enabled an acid house style tweakage via those oscillators, filters and LFOs that gives you instant tunes and riffs across the keyboard. Give it a go: kick drum programming with a sense of fun.

OK, I stopped at only four presets because, well… it’s still just a kick drum, but there are many more waiting to be discovered!
