Krotos Audio at Gear Expo 2021

Krotos, the company behind the award-winning Dehumaniser, Reformer, Weaponiser and Igniter plugins, develop unique software that revolutionises the way sound is designed and performed.

Concept is designed to inspire you – a soft-synth that lets you push and bend the boundaries of modulation and designing your own synth patches with a unique and creative workflow. 

Take creative control of your sound, and employ Concept’s flexible synth engine and onboard effects to create anything from traditional synth sounds to more complex evolving textures. Explore the sonic possibilities of designing your own custom presets, and dive deep into modulation through a fast drag-and-drop workflow.

The team at Krotos have been developing Concept’s next major update for the past few months. This will see a whole range of exciting new features and sounds added to the product, ready for release in February 2020. Make sure you’ve signed up for the Krotos mailing list to be the first to hear about it!

Concept Artist Showcase: Building a Complete Track with Alessandro Mastroianni 

There’s a lot to discover with Concept – feeding audio from your DAW to control synth settings, performing movements with XY Capture to experimenting with randomisation with the Tweak It function.

Krotos have enlisted the help of Composer, Musician & Sound Designer Alessandro Mastroianni (Prodigal, Gone Nine Months, Travestía, 65North) to demonstrate just how much is possible with this powerful plugin, and how he uses it in his own tracks.

Tune in to the video and watch how Alessandro builds a complete track from start to finish, taking you through his creative process and experimental approach.
