Sound Color Patch Bank

We’ve just released the “Sound Colors” Bank.   This bank is a collection of patches for Trilobite Pro 1.2 and later featuring the Sound Color module. Patches were authored and/or evolved at Darwin Arts, with generous contributions from Doug Lynner and Later Days.

The following track uses just a few of the patches included:

The Sound Color Module is based largely on the work and advice of Professor Wayne Slawson (See his book, Sound Color), this module is a human vocal formant sound coloration filter with optional vocal tone generator. All of the patches in this bank will have vocal attributes in some form.
