WMD's Fracture utilizes a proprietary granular synthesis engine, employing microsound techniques to create a "crowd percussion" synth voice ideal for claps, applause, and other particulate percussion sounds. Built around the same granular engine as their ingenious Chimera metallic percussion synth, the Fracture uses single-impulse samples to create everything from snappy transients to clouds of noise. Inspired by classic drum machine claps and audience applause samples, the Fracture creates waves of sound from microsonic fragments, all under voltage control.
Granular percussion synth inspired by claps, audience applause samples, and more
Uses proprietary granular engine for everything from snaps to claps and insane beds of noise
Density, decay, and tail controls affect tone and "tightness" of clappers
Integrated room and hall reverbs
Two trigger inputs for different sound varieties
3 different, independently selectable envelope and filter types
Can operate as free-running sound source or triggerable percussion voice
Eloquencer Sequencing WMD Fracture And Other Modules
We used the Winter Modular Eloquencer to sequence the WMD Fracture granular percussion module as well as a Plonk and Basimilus Iteritas Alter. We also used some EMW drum modules including the Analog Drum Synth, Snare Lab 101 and T-Drum.
