Aperture – Analog Ambient for u-he Diva
Aperture is a collection of sounds inspired by ambient productions by Aphex Twin from the 80s and 90s. The main design goal of the sounds is to combine analog depth and warmth, with pitch imperfections, lush reverbs and organic modulation.
The main focus of the soundset lies with pads, soundscapes and soft melodic leads, oddly tuned bells, a handful of arpeggios, analog style effects sounds and some mellow drums and percussion.
The soundset is divided into two parts. The first part contains the main section of the sounds, designed using all synthesis options available in Diva. The second part is called “Fundamentals” and is a collection of sounds stripped back to their bare minimum with one or two oscillators and usually just one effect. This section is more basic and was designed to be more typical ambient bread and butter sounds. We also chose to make the sounds in the “Fundamentals” to be less CPU intensive.
