Automata for Diva released

December 12, 2023

Automata marks a departure from our usual soundsets. While previous releases from a single creative mind would focus on a specific musical style, this collection delves into a more technical and underrepresented aspect of Diva: motion!

The 300+ presets in Automata were crafted by seven esteemed sound designers – Bryan Lake, Chris Kay, Electric Himalaya, Howard Scarr, Viktor Weimer, Yuli Yolo, and Yuta Yoshimatsu. Each sound designer brought their own distinct approach into this project. We believe their collective expertise has resulted in something truly special!

Going beyond conventional note patterns from the arpeggiator, the incorporation of per-voice modulation and innovative LFO techniques elevates Diva into a dynamic tool for generating musical motion.
