MODWHEEL (in association with ShapedNoise) have finally finished the WaveSkimmer pulse machine. Kirke from ShapedNoise had a brilliant, germ of an idea, and it's only taken about a year of agonising by all of us to bring it to fruition. It's had a lot of minds on it, this one, some sharp and some not so.
The trick was to make a very complex machine simple and it took a while to nail it.
It has both pulse and pitch step generators that are unbelievably easy to manipulate in all sorts of ways, on the fly.
Comes with over 150 snapshots to get you started (please make sure you read the instructions on snapshot installation, or you will be missing out on a big part of the functionality of WaveSkimmer)
Without further ado and raving it can be yours for the intro price of US$49 (till the end of February)

Here's a promo to hypnotise you.


And here's a quick run through that will give you a pretty good idea of what WaveSkimmer is all about.

I LOVE THIS! I have all of your libraries and you make such great stuff! Thank you!!!

I love Modwheel! Their stuff is inspiring and very well recorded.
Ditto. Not only does WaveSkimmer have wonderful, organic acoustic sounds, but it's ultra-fun to just explore and play with. I now have 4 Modwheel libraries, have zero buyer's remorse about any of them, and will quite possibly eventually get their whole line...

Oh good; I thought it would never get here. So now, what'll we call tomorrow?

('Sound's great, you three).
Now that the future his already here we enter 'Post Future' which unfortunately meant death by asphyxiation for the guys in the vid for not wearing proper breathing apparatus while trampolining on the moon.

After that comes some dark days for everyone as we go through 2 world wars but then we eventually get to the summer of love, which goes great for a few years until the drugs get too strong but does leave us with some beautiful music, especially some shit hot guitar playing.
Things go dark again around 2017 but do come right the following year after a small musical software company based in New Zealand come up with some virtual instruments that have such emotional resonance the whole world is entranced and the veil is lifted. Music and arts are restored to their real place of value.
Eventually that small software company becomes so big that they manage to buy Google, Amazon, Apple and a bunch of other shonky corporations and immediately pay all the back taxes those companies have been avoiding thus saving the world.

After post future comes 'Futurest' where the sun explodes in a giant explosion, the greatest note ever played.
So it's all looking good.

Well thank you for the clarification there, DaDo (I like the "'rest' part). I'm glad to see you have your heads on straight.

Can you offer us any comfort as to how "End of Trumps" plays into (or 'out of') all of this?

I could quibble with you about the causes leading to the demise of the Summer of Love (which I only know from history). Also our sun, alas, is not massive enough to nova, but will turn into a red giant and die a very long slow death via heat dissipation. I hope it doesn't suffer...

But other than that, excellent broad-based summary of the road we're on!

Boot, Oh yes that's another event that happens early in 2018. Trump totally gets what's coming to him.
How the North Koreans managed to abduct him and ship him back to North Korea is never quite revealed. They sure do have harsh prison camps over there though.

In case any Modwheel folks around, website purchasing appears to be compromised, hangs after paypal login.

EDIT: When paypal dialog comes up select the credit card option and it works. Got my new toy :)

We've been in contact with Paypal a number of times this week about these issues. They keep insisting that it is not them but the customers bank stopping bank to bank transfers. Maybe being based in New Zealand raises some imaginary bank issues?
It should work if you pay using a credit/debit card.
Most people aren't having any problems, it just seems to be a few based in US and Canada?
We are looking into other payment options at the moment to try and finally sort this.
Do let us know if you are having any problems, the more information we have the better in dealing with it.
We are around and will answer your emails.
Our apologies if you are experiencing an issue.
