In a Future Music (issue 298) interview, when asked whether she is seeking “inspiring new sounds and effects plug-ins”, she responds: “There’s this synth that’s like a plant you can grow, called Synplant … it has all these weird parameters where you can take a sound and throw a plant arm around it. It’s really visual, so you’re not really working with numbers … It’s very intuitive and you can mess with the sounds without having to know that much about how it works.” It’s not clear from the interview whether Grimes has actually used this synth in any of her recordings.more
Synplant is a software synthesizer with a genetic approach to sound creation. Instead of creating patches the conventional way by turning dials and knobs, Synplant lets you explore a world of organic sounds by planting seeds that grow into synth patches.
Once you are ready to get your hands dirty and dig deeper into the anatomy of Synplant you will have the option to crack open your sound seeds and modify their underlying genetic code.
The purpose of this product is to move focus away from the sometimes intricate and difficult process of sound synthesis and instead let you develop sounds by simply using your ears. You will find that creating synth patches with Synplant will be as easy as listening and deciding what you like and then having the sounds evolve in the directions you desire.
Although Synplant is exceedingly easy to use, whatever you do, do not let its relative simplicity fool you. Beneath its straightforward and playful interface you will find a versatile synthesizer of the utmost quality with lots of character.
This synth is awesome for doing synth risers in the build up for a track! Thanks to @nicky_romero for showing this in his video of how he made "Toulouse". Thats the reason why I bought this synth because I loved the sound of his rising synth a lot! And I've been able to replicate my own very awesome sounding version of this riser so this synth really does work awesome for that! Highly Recommended
