about B+B patches

all B+B presets are originally designed and programmed by Niels Dettenbach (dettenbach audio) from init in over 6 monthes of intensive, professional sound design work. this patch collection mainly targets studio and live artists of modern music genres - with a taste of neuro and psychoacoustical engineering - the "butter". to round up, as further "bread" a base set of sounds as drum / perc kits and a few adopted classic electro sounds with the significant "spice" and the fresh punch / dynamics of PEAKs new arch - for easy tuning and custom tweaking - is included.

B+B strongly focus onto the dimensions of fresh and new sounds the groundbreaking new FPGA-driven architecture and the revolutionary (high speed) "Oxford Oscillators" of the PEAK to open them to modern artists playing (and producers working) on modern - or even new - music styles. the primary target was to provide modern analog sounds that are sounding really new, fresh and crisp while still beeing musical / playable and as such usable as your fresh "bread and butter" in your studio and live - from pushing pop, hiphop over edm, electro to harder electro and neuro - up to experimental.

while these sounds are all usable out of the box within modern musical projects - they offer starting points into dimensions of new sound fields easy to explore - to the professional studio producer as creative live musicians - who are looking for a really fresh sound flavour and not just another adaption of often heared synth sounds on "just a new synth" platform.

modulations and arp sounds

most presets still come with multiple modulation pathes (animation buttons, modwheel, aftertouch...). the sounds of the most arp presets could be used standalone too (by just pressing / disabling "arp"). many sounds have matching arp settings preconfigured.

effects / fx

All patches are equipped with programmed FX. Many sounds could be used without PEAK fx too (by just switching "Effects" > "bypass") if you prefer to use your own external or DAW fx chain in your application.
