Hi- i've been listening to a lot of demos of the wretch machine and am seriously considering buying one- Very Happy

i am just wondering if its possible to get a chromatic scale out of this beast-

i.e can i play an existing melody or riff on it or is it really for creating unique sounds:?:

I love the tone of the wretch and have always experimented with distorting synths but i would like to use it on melody/riff based songs rather then dnb or pure electronica

Does anyone have any examples of the wretch without drum backing that can illustrate this possibility - what i would ideally like is if some cool person posted a nice octave or so of a typical wretch synth patch.

Or a clip of someone playing Gary Numans Cars on the Wretch Machine Smile

Thanks

You can get about 2 octaves of range out of it. It is capable of playing chromatic scales, but I must warn that calibration can be time consuming, and it does drift. But yeah, I've done a number of tracks, at least one of which is posted in here somewhere.

1- yes
2- no
Sounds like a challange Laughing

hmmm thats cool - i suppose you could just sample it or something?

Think i may be best to get the Waveshaper first and see if i can use that!

Im basically searching for the ultimate distoted synth tone but not in a cheezy trance way - i really like the sound of the wretch - its so unique
like a Putney

http://www.virb.com/edisonrex/music/albums/35168 and listen to 152-Wretchmix-1 - I guess I had posted it here once but it was lost in the Great Crash of 2007.

And here's another that makes good use of the Wretch, even shows off its key tracking a bit.

Wonderful track. That's the best clip I have heard using the wretch. Very musical, and yet gritty.

Not cheap are they!

Sounds interesting though and looks very nice.

Thank you!

There isn't anything else like the Wretch, unless maybe you built something, but honestly, the shark fin waveform really has a unique sound, and put through that filter it just comes out, well, unique.

http://www.electro-music.com/forum/topic-16898.html is the first track I posted here at electro-music, and the first track I used the Wretch Machine on.

I like your stuff its much mellower than mine. I cant seem to calm down long enough to make some nice ambient sounds but it's on my list of things to do. Nice job!
