The Portable

We took the FM generated range of sounds to a new musical level, making The Portable a great retro alternative yet cinematic resource of synth sounds.

The Portable - Retro Alternative Synth Sounds


The Portable is an ideal tool for creating retrowave flavoured synthetic sounds, from classic synth brass to modern and alternative pads and textures. It’s also a great compendium to any style of music, including Retro and Modern Electronica, Synthpop, Wave, Hip Hop, Film Music and Ambient.

Sounds are divided into three main categories: Original sounds (the original generated sounds), Snapshots (designed presets) and Sequences (A selection of sequences, including editable Step Bender)

With its usable interface and a selected array of controls and effects The Portable allows the customization and creation of an unlimited range of inspiring sounds. Controls include a Luminance control with over 20 impulses and a Rhythmizer for additional modulation. It also includes a Step Bender for the creation of custom sequences.
