Inspired by the future aesthetic of the 70’s and 80’s, C-Tools is a trinity of retro synth sound, featuring three distinct instruments: Capsule (drums), Coil (bass) & Clique (keys). From nostalgic strings to archetypical pulsing rhythms, C-Tools is the framework for building the vintage synth sound of yesterday, today.
The C-Tools suite of instruments includes: Capsule: the C-Tools Drum Machine, featuring eight drum channels and a built-in sequencer. Complete with thumping kicks and kitschy hand claps, Capsule takes a mostly analogue approach to its synthesis engines. Also with an additional effects chain crafted specifically for drums, including a gated reverb.
Coil: a hybrid monosynth designed especially for bass sounds. It uses digital FM and analogue subtractive synthesis techniques to produce a rich sound palette – from biting and percussive, to deep and throbbing, and all spaces in between.
Clique: a combination of string machine and combo organ – two instruments that used similar frequency division techniques to produce their polyphonic sounds. Added is a split keyboard routing mechanism, which allows you to assign different parts of the synthesizer to the upper, lower, or both halves of the keyboard.
