Trautonium three pack
Pack of three trautonium based synthesizers for your soul
I first started messing around with Trautonium oscillators by accident when touring around core, and I liked the sound so much I made three different synthesizers with them. The Trautonium in Reaktor is a comparatively thick sound for a digital synthesizer, and with a few controls you can get quite a bit of throaty sawtooth type variety.
I also was experimenting giving each voice its own arpeggiator. Hopefully this time round it's a little easier to work with; I was suffering from arp-feature-bloat before. Don Dailey came up with a great idea for offsetting the arps from one another, which can create some really nice rhythmic patterns.
The most recent updates are relatively considerable, so if you liked these before you might want to check them again. There are new presets for these, again courtesy of Don Dailey.
This trautonium-esque synthesizer is a bread-and-butter machine for pads, leads, and arps. It sounds subjectively "warm" and it's very simple to operate, so you don't end up drowning in knobs and buttons. It's sorta retro too. The FX unit is now freestanding and antique sounding.
This synth combines two trautonium-esque oscs with FM operators and two arpeggiators. The latest update has a mod matrix, and the two arpeggiators can be offset from one another (thanks to Don Dailey for this suggestion). Probably the best of the set.
This is a ringmod based synthesizer with two simultaneous arpeggiators that can run at different tempi. It's also useable as an FX unit with audio in, such that it ringmodulates incoming audio against the complex arpeggiators. The ringmodulator saturates the signal at high input levels, which gives it (to my ears) a classic 1960's experimental electronic sound. For more variety in audio, I also borrowed the wavetables from nanowave, which makes for lots of new audio possibilities.
