Synare and WerkBench wake up the neighbors!

September 8, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

WerkBench is available for the iPad in the app store: http://bit.ly/L6jhd9

Here we are using WerkBench to make a groove using sounds from a late-1970’s analog drum synth known as the Synare 3.

The Star Instruments Synare is most famous for its use on disco records as a simple ‘tom-tom’ sound (the first sound I play in this video). Despite its cheesy historical use, the Synare actually a beastly little analog synth with two oscillators (with noise and LFO modes respectively), a self oscilating low-pass filter, and envelopes for filter and volume. I only scratch the surface in this video.

WerkBench is a tool for crafting rhythmic loops from any source material in real-time. WerkBench is great for grabbing sounds on the fly from analog synths that lack patch memory (like the Synare, Monotron, or any modular rig).
