Flintpope has released Molekules, a free ROMpler instrument plugin for Windows and Mac featuring ten presets for soundscape creators.
Molekules is a highly versatile modular effects rack that produces movement in the sound – very useful if you need long and evolving pads that can sometimes take you by surprise. Who wants a lush Juno pad all the time anyway? Everyone else but you!
Molekules is also good at creating harsh environments as well as beautiful chasms of sound. You almost never hear the original piano sample but it lends its own sonic richness to the end result.
The plugin comes with ten sounds that can be accessed via a drop-down list opened by clicking on the initial preset “Atmos”. Master controls are Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release, Pan and Gain. There is an LFO with separate controls for Rate, Depth, Waveform and Destination (try Expression as a Destination for peculiar results). There are also two FX modules, a reverb and a pitch- shift.
Molekules can be downloaded for free, but you may consider offering a donation towards the cost of making it by not putting a zero in the price box.
