Sonico is a synth with analog - retro "features": mono keyboard, mono output, no velocity. I made it as a thank to Escuela Sonica (Buenos Aires, Argentina), and it was inspired (is not an emulation) by Torturator, a hardware synth I made in the '80s with chips 555 and binary CMOS counters.
The design is focused on the largest possible diversity of presets with minimal controls.
- 1 standard oscillator.
- 1 square wave osc with 4 simultaneous octaves.
- 2 ENVELOPE generators.
- 1 LFO.
- 1 filter with 2 simultaneous bands.
- "Lead" retro effect.
- "Vintager" effect, to give warmth-retro air.
