Shut Up & Play: 50 Sounds For The Behringer Edge

Sound designer Anton Anru has introduced Techno Generator, a collection of 50 patches for the analog semi-modular synthesizer Behringer Edge.

The no-talking demo is not just a blah-blah-blah free demo of Anru’s patch library, but a comprehensive introduction to the sound design possibilities of the Edge.

Here’s what Anru has to say about the patch library:

“Though the title includes «Techno», the patches may be used in a wide variety of genres. Techno is just the first thing comes in my mind when I tweak and listen to EDGE. Analog phatness, experimental sounds, huge basses, vivid leads, freaky sequences, electronic drums, generative-fx patches work nicely not only in techno, they will decorate any track where a decent sound design is welcome.

The soundset is presented in PDF format. Each page contains notes that explain how the patch works, what parameters are worth tweaking during playback, and how to develop the timbre during a performance. If you make all the settings consciously and try the things mentioned in the notes, you will learn a lot about the synth and discover its true depth.”
