Cableguys: Hello David, how long are you making music?
I started making music with ReBirth last century and I remember how glad I felt when my friends were listening to my first track — which was basically a single loop of a TB-303 sound playing for 20 minutes!
What do you like most about Curve 2 and what makes it unique in your opinion?
Well, I'm a 3d designer so I spend my days pushing points an pulling curves.
So when I say Curve it felt like home :)
Seriously, I love that you can draw precisely what you want, and that you can do that basically for everything.
Having the ability to test the sound of a waveform in real time it fantastic.
For what kind of sounds do you prefer to use Curve 2?
I like the screaming FM sounds you can get when you choose the right oscillator shape.
And the multi-point LFOs are great to create complex rhythms, many-faceted synthlines and even drumloops.
Which of your new presets is your favorite?
My favorite preset is probably "I used to be a hero" — a complex syntline. It expresses anger and sadness which are two feelings I really like to mix together in my music.
I used two LFOs linked to the oscillators' pitches to create its melody.
Do you have any suggestion to users of Curve 2?
This synth is not like the usual VA. Curve is about... curves.
So play with them, move their waveform points while the sound is playing to find the sweet spot!
And create crazy LFOs!
