Costing upwards of $100.000, the dream machine of the 80's was unattainable by most. Used by countless prominent artists including: Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Kate Bush, Herbie Hancock, Jean Michel Jarre, Thomas Dolby and many more, it remains a highly regarded and sought after instrument.
We took our obsession to the next level, creating a complete set of instruments, sounds and sonic tools deeply inspired by the original digital monster. A unique, hybrid process of exhaustive multi-sampling, analysis, and advanced scripts for audio processing allowed us to not only capture the original character of this machine but to enhance its ability with a host of today's most powerful analog modeled filters, LFOs, envelopes and effects--packaged beautifully in an old-school interface.
Darklight IIx offers several 'Pages', each an instrument on its own:
- Page P - "Organic" Digital Sound
