Knifonium Rheostat volume 1, £12.95, includes more than 60 Presets for Knifonium.

SOUND7 says:

A preset pack that brings you avant garde, archaeo-futuristic noire breathed into life from a mass of tubes and wires, these presets awaken Jonte Knif's monster with a spark.

Sounds are drawn from experiences with dusty cathode ray tubes, back room cloud chambers, tattered Van der Graaf belts, patinaed scientific instrumentation, bakelite vario-resistors, and the arcane behaviors of raw electricity that the Knifonium is so apt to capture. With a focus on playability, presets walk the line above chaotic disintegration to allow for thoughtful composition and provoking accompaniment that feel controlled and musical while still sounding turbulent and anarchic.

Presets also take advantage of the plugin's unique oscillator spreading, mid/side filtering, feedback cycling, oscillator soaking, ring modulating, and output saturating capabilities, while not relying on effects to generate the heart of each sound.

Expect basses that sound like milling machines vibrating apart, strings that are popping with static, keys that scintillate as they warble, pads that resonate with friction, and timbers that resist taxonomy. They would work in music inspired by Sun Ra or Boards of Canada alike, perhaps a mishap between Cecil Taylor and Jonny Greenwood of dystopian free jazz, bubbling with Victorian steam and antediluvian science, ready under your keys.
