Rumble or Ancient Times by Soma is a handy mini synthesizer with lots of lo-fi charm and sounds from a time when programs still fit on floppy disks. The synthesizer with 8-bit sound generation generates a wide range of sounds you might know from MS-DOS and C64 video games, a lot of noisy stuff but also more typical synthesizer sounds that lend themselves to a musical context. Thanks to an efficient code, "ROAT" needs hardly any resources and gets by with a processor that would have been used in refrigerators or a microwave oven in the past. Therefore, the four AAA batteries last up to 130 hours of operation.

Rattling sounds

The sound generation is composed of four tunable oscillators with 16 waveforms each, which have their own LFOs and envelopes. In addition, there are eight summing algorithms that can handle FM, ring modulation, multiplication and XOR, among others, and cover a total of 1536 variations. The sound is rounded off with an intentionally trashy 8-bit Lowpass filter. For more variety in the sound a randomizer is implemented.

Off to the grid!

Animate and rhythmically work in the weird sounds with the integrated sequencer, which continuously loops a 4/4 beat and plays set sound triggers and can also delete them again. In addition, the sequencer can be synchronized via analog clock eg. with a Teenage Engenieering Pocket Operator.
