Panopticon for Avenger
Painting with sound on sonic canvas using broad and delicate brushes, creating an exhibition of sculpted sound around a musical well, Panopticon is a collection of expressive, evocative, soothing, playful, dark, exciting, often cinematic patches, also focussing on the granular capabilities of the hybrid monster named Avenger.

The patches in Panopticon make use of re-synthesized/wave-tabled vocal, instrumental and electronic tones, processed field recordings, multi-sampled acoustic instruments like electric/acoustic guitar, soprano saxophone, accordion, singing bowls (also bowed), crystal bowls, wavetable-based drones, pads, sequencers and synths, granular/multi-sampled soundscapes, re-synthesized/wave-tabled hardware synths and more. Quite a few patches utilize the new cross-FM feature introduced in Avenger version 1.3, which allows for frequency modulation (FM) between oscillators.

There is some overlap in the content folders for granular and sampling sources as Avenger converts a given sample/multi-sample either as a sampling source or as a granular source.

So I recorded some electric guitar today, here is a first demo track:

Ambient guitar track featuring two patches from Panopticon, some Macro and modulation wheel action, 100% Avenger. The flageolet guitar patch is layering two long loops (32 bars x 4 beats) running in tempo-synced granular mode.

More cross FM:

Improvising live on video with a patch from Panopticon, this patch uses a tempo-synced electric guitar loop (granular synthesis) frequency-modulated by oscillator 2 (pitch-modulated sine wave).

Sounding terrific, looking forward to this.

I'm presuming all patches are tagged? I'm thinking Avenger might replace Omnisphere for me for third party soundsets - Omni's tagging is now so explosively atrotious its impossible to maintain any kind of consistency between factory and third party sets so you never know what to search for. I've always taken the view that if you can't find a patch when you need it, it may as well not be there. Avenger seems built from the ground up to be very 3rd party friendly, tags are pretty basic but useful, and its synthesis is now considerably expanded.
