This is a collection of 20 patches I created for the Novation Ultranova synthesizer. It is an ecclectic mix of sounds - pads, leads, crazy sfx and rhythmic stuff. I took time to program velocity, aftertouch, mod wheel, and at least 4 knobs of "Tweak" for
each one. I hope you enjoy them!
THE FAMOUS TRANSFORMER SOUND (SPEED CONTROLLED BY MODWHEEL!!!!!!)
play very short staccato for a pad type marimba tone. hold notes for a penetrating triple saw osc's that drift through the delay for the following moments. After touch only works with mod wheel fully open. Touch 4 is a ton of fun when emphasizing the saw waves with after touch. Why 3 saw osc with no detuning? the pitch wheel has a different influence on each
An up-front ambient pad. Mod wheel creates an thick leslie/rotary sound (just slightly faster than any real leslie could hope to be!) that sounds even stranger when after touch is depressed at full speed. Touch 1 creates a sound that more definitive for leads. Activating chord also creates a huge lead tone that retains root note, but adds perfect 5ths, 4ths, and octaves. touch 2 is noise. Leave in lower octaves since after touch creates scooped filter dip. Try after touch with chord activated and slowly increase mod wheel while pressing touch 2 activated! (leave in lower octave for filters to function properly since they go negative with after touch)
Very similar to wheelwobambience but has a different take on mods. Most of the comments from wheelwobambience hold true here, but try mod wheel fully open, with after touch engaged. noise is tied to the slow growth on oscillator 3! To control the noise with aftertouch hold touch 2 and experiment with different pressures. If this patch is too intense deactivate the chord, it has intervals of octaves, P4's, and P5's so it will retain root qualities but can be overwhelming.
Built off a the joanna bells patch but transformed. Hold after touch with caution causes intense feedback! Please add some additional mods or touches if you'd like I was having a hard time finding ones I liked. try in poly mode with chord active as well.
A poly1 wave-table patch designed for staccato and quick licks. LFO one controls index and is a one shot, so each new keystrike gives you next wave table. Dive bomb octave after touch, mod wheel fully open emphasizes percussiveness. Chord unit set up to add an extra layer of depth.
Organ and triangle based patch with delay, phaser filter sweeps assiged to LFO's, and vsyncs assigned to mod wheel. Chord activated creates a maj7 chord so you can use it to emphasize major key changes. FilterRes on after-touch. Touch mods are a bit lacking, almost out of slots left a few empty for you to tweak. Filter's attached to LFO2+/- set at 16th intervals creates interesting stepping during sustained notes. Also, mod wheel fully open sets to infinite delay feedback, interesting to blast fully on during a quick-run solo for a few bars.
Inspired by Eric Whitacre's vocal arrangement "Lux Aurumque" with some obvious synthesis enhancements. Try playing the opening passage with this patch.
Moog type sound, square, triangle, and a wavetable osc. Unison detuning, filter and vsync aftertouch, multiple mod wheel assignments including a stereo panning tied to LFO rates, rectify distortion (i know i know..diode would have been more accurate but it was making some strange clipping) No tweaks or touches added, change them as you like!
Mod Wheel controls:
Touch control 1: LFO3+>Osc2Ptch
Touch control 2:
Touch control 3:
Env1Amp + LFO3+>PanPosn
Touch control 4:
Env1Amp + LFO1+/->EQMidFreq
Tweak mode has parameters assigned as well.
Famine Lab. 2012.
A jazzy mono EP tone with delay, press after-touch to add a harsh diode distortion and cut through the mix. Two ep_bell osc and one triangle makes it work well in both upper and lower octaves. Touch 3 and 4 add additional distortions to create a guitar-type lead. Mod wheel is osc2 vsync and osc1 pitch creates strange dissonance that still retains root note when rolled fully open. solo with mod wheel fully open or closed, middle ground for effects.
A clarinet type of jazzy solo with minimal tweaks required. Slight portament and V-sync on mod wheel so be very careful in upper octaves, try altering to lower during a solo then rolling up on mod wheel to about half-way
just a bassy odd patch with nice modulation settings. try out the touch and the mod wheel will bring the lfo in

MODWHEEL CHANGES PITCH DIRECTION!!!!
Modeled after the default sound of animoog for the ipad!!!! ENJOY!!!!
use after touch and mod wheel to freak the lfo on the filter. touch controls provide the Stank on it!
Works well as a lead or a bass just use big knob filter to cutoff to use as bass. Touch controls initiate some moderately interesting modulations.
Simply enough basic "keys" patch. Slightly detuned to give it a dirtier sound. Lends an eerie vibe to it.
My first additive creation with UltraNova consisting of a sawtooth, a square, and a pulsewidth wave. Creates a "pulsing" sort of sound. Go figure, heh. Pretty raw with no modulations added, only a mild phase effect.
Same patch as the original, only with a delay effect and some modulations added to the touch controls. Use the mod wheel when utilizing these.
A subtle pad that turns dyanmic with after touch and modwheel movements. Try holding touch 1 and applying after-touch.
