AlgoMusic’s Atomic – Creative Synth / Sequencer VSTi For Windows
AlgoMusic released Atomic, a VSTi Synthesizer and Sequencer for Windows last Spring. One of our staffers recently “rediscovered” this addictive little plug-in when he came to a “creative halt” in one of his compositions, and we thought we’d bring it to your attention once again since AlgoMusic’s website fails to properly link directly to this dynamic instrument from their homepage.
Atomic is essentially a creative 16-step sequencer that just happens to come with a built-in 2 Oscillator subtractive synthesizer. It can control other software synths, as well as hardware synths via it’s MIDI out function, allowing its unique take on sequencing to be applied to the outboard gear world. You can also manipulate hardware from the two LFOs and the step modulator as well.
Dedicated to electronic music pioneer Allen Strange (1943-2008), AlgoMusic took inspiration from Future Retro Revolution’s circular design, as well as the Buchla Arbitrary Function Generator, to create an interface that would instantly provoke the user to start tweakin’.
