What does it sound like?

As with most audio effects, that really depends on what you put into it.

For starters, there are a number of test examples in this SoundCloud playlist. The first couple were made with pretty rough early versions of the app, but most are close to the finished article.

How about a demo video?

Sure, why not? Although we have to admit it’s probably not the most riveting audio-visual experience you’ll have today...

For comparison purposes, you can find the original unfrobulated Gadget track here, while the outcome of the knob twiddling in the video is here.

Been there, done that?

Get the T-shirt!

Seriously? Merch? Well, perhaps not seriously, but yes merch.

Thanks to those nice people at Synth Patcher you can now wear your art on your sleeve. We think this T is pretty cute, but we would say that, wouldn’t we? So don’t listen to us, go check it out.
