waldorf attack. it’s marketed as a drum synth, but is really an extremely versatile 2 oscillator VA synth, with 24 part multitimbrality and 48 voices of polyphony. each part also has its own sequencer, so it’s almost more of a groovebox than anything.
also uses waldorf’s excellent DSP algorithms, which i swear sometimes must be imbued with some kind of magic. seriously one of the most characterful and organic analog emulations i’ve ever heard. and it’s only $20 nwn
i use it to make most of my drum samples, and have also made a few fairly solid basses, but often i just get lost in it, pushing it to its limits and seeing what kind of chaos i can conjure. it’s really something :3
