112dB has announced the release of Cascade, a synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac OS X.

With Cascade 112dB aims to offer a new take on sound synthesis, enabling you to create sounds you could never create before. Cascade is a combination of a classic subtractive synthesizer and a new method of synthesis, based on a complex delay network that can "densify" a sound up to 5832 times. That doesn't mean that a sound you create with cascade will per definition sound 'denser'. It can also be more lush and spacious, depending on the settings you choose. What makes Cascade unique however is that a sound can develop over time, adding extra dimensions to it. And that you can select the most interesting part of this development process as the part you want to hear.

An unrestricted 60-day evaluation version is available from: www.112dB.com/instruments/cascade?demo


  • 2 extremely fat oscillators.
  • Juicy analog style filters.
  • A new creative form of synthesis.
  • Especially good for: atmospheric soundscapes, grungy industrial sounds, hypnotic pads & strings.


The making of Cascade was inspired by the work of Austrian composer Peter Ablinger. He experimented in the late 1980s with sound densification using 12 tape decks. 112dB took this intriguing concept to the realm of synthesis with the goal to open up a complete new sonic territory to experiment with.
