SyS TG1 is a multimixture synthesizer with 2 individual voices and a wavetable sequencer. The waiting is over – 6 years later we created a fully satisfying final version of this long awaited device. When we announced SyS TG1 in 2010 and sent out some Beta versions, we were so surprised by the massive amount of interest and the pure impact of downloaded demos, we almost had to shut the website down, because we weren’t prepared for that kind of attention. SyS TG1 must have hit a nerve, and here might be why: Coming from the C64 and 8-bit sound world, Wertstahl always wanted to have a Synthesizer, that acted like a SID Soundchip in a 16 bit context. So he went and analyzed the methods of how the complex C64 sounds were created: although the SID Soundchip is extremely limited, sequentially switching waveforms or using arpeggio-lists to create pseudo-chords do the magic. Inspired by that, the heart of the SyS TG1 was born: the wave-morph-sequencer.
Not only can you sequentially switch from one waveform to another while your sound is played, but now the waveforms will smoothely morph. This generates a multitude of transitions of over- and subtones, giving the SyS TG1 it’s unique sound.
Aditionally, manipulation of sounds should be as simple and intuitive as possible, so we added a double FM-Unit and an Akai S-1000 inspired 12-bit low-pass Filter. It is very non-resonant and soft – just the way we like it.
Furthermore, deep inside the device, you will our mixing- routine switch, and the Kraftwerk-Inspired “Stoerstrahlung”-button.
* SyS Ton-Geraet 1 is available as VSTi 2.4 plug-in
* Windows PC (at least Windows 7 and 2009+ DAWs recommended).
