The Hands Of Darkness represents a very unique and innovative concept culminated into tangible VST form. The idea? A binary box for but one purpose, to create dark, unsettling organic/metallic ambient textures. Obviously this concept has a limited demographic, but for those in need of such a device… surely they will be delighted. If you find the concept of an “ominous texture generator” intriguing, please read on…
The Hands Of Darkness is at heart a synthesizer consisting of three layered oscillators using abstract mathematics to form their waveforms. Each layer can be turned on or off to save CPU. These layers of waveforms emit idiosyncratic tones which are sequentially molested into menacing sounds to ultimately combine into one final synergy of delightful corruption… fully defined by the user. Create subtle warbly puddles of mercury, harsh abrasive fields of rust, or even robotic cascades of binary dementia; ghostly drones, or morphing dissonant cavalcades. There is no end to the variety and insanity of The Hands Of Darkness.
All three of The Hands Of Darkness’ sound generators include the following in this order: Oscillator with LFO pitch, LFO phase shift, ADSR, artifacting pitch shift with LFO, granulizer with LFO, bitcrusher with LFO, delay with timing offsets and modulation plus LFO, autopanner, analog filter, and individual volume control. A global reverb is also included. All of these devices come together times three to create ambient sounds and textures that NOVUZEIT guarantees you’ve never, ever heard anywhere else. You will only hear sounds like these from The Hands Of Darkness.
Whether you’re a noise artist, a soundtrack producer for horror films/games, an ambient/experimental music purveyor, or simply an aural marauding hobbiest, NOVUZEIT knows that you will find The Hands Of Darkness invaluable to your efforts. Why not download the demo and give it a go? All you have to lose is some sleep.
