The Meng Qi Karp is a waveguide synthesis voice with an aggressive, glitchy character. It consists of a delay line fed back through a crude filter with widely variable controls, allowing for everything from plinky percussion to out-of-control string and noise sounds. Thanks to voltage control over every parameter, the Karp can serve several purposes even within the same patch. The Karp is undoubtedly a unique sound source sure to bring something different to any system.
Meng Qi Karp And Detroit Underground DU-KRPLS Karplus Strong Modules

These modules are great for percussion and sound effects, but can also produce weird melodies.
