Uproar” takes the classic subtractive synth architecture, turns it on its head, beats it up and calls its mother nasty names.

This is a synth plugin excels at aggressively powerful tones and is built from the ground up to be experimental in all the best ways. Go on, ditch your filters for once – forget chewy ladders and squelchy resonance and get hip to the groans and roars of distortion taking your patches in whole new directions. Once you start you might find you can’t stop!

A Unique Distortion-based Synthesiser for Kontakt!

The principle behind it is simple: instead of taking a complex, harmonically-rich waveform and progressively filtering it, “Uproar” starts with smoother waves and progressively distorts them – messing them up with saturation, distortion and bitcrushing modules until they reach whatever point of complexity you want.

The main features of this plugin are as follows:

  • Twin detunable waveform generators: blend between pure sines and erratic, complex eBow guitar strings
  • Three independent distortion types under LFO and envelope control for moving, shifting, evolving harmonic spectra

In doing so, it imparts a whole new character to ‘typical’ synth tones, and drifts easily into territory that a typical subtractive synth can’t really reach, making it perfect for high-energy, aggressive synth sounds, or subtler tones with an unusual, airy edge!

Turning Classic Subtractive Synth Architecture On It’s Head

“Uproar” uses as its starting point two waveform generators. Because these are the cornerstones of the sound, Rhythmic Robot have given you a lot of scope right here. The Impurity dial blends between a pure analogue sine-wave and a far more complex, uneven waveform that we created by eBowing the strings of Mongo’s Telecaster.

But it’s the next bit that’s really fun. Instead of giving you filters and filter envelopes, you get distortion, and distortion envelopes. Distortion amounts, drive levels, even bit depths, are all under the control of ADR envelopes and freely variable LFOs, so you can create pulsing, monstrous, progressive, evolving sounds with really cool cyclic distortion effects.

Running Wave 2 through its bitcrusher and tying in an LFO will cycle from 1 bit to 16 bits at whatever speed you like; combining that with a gritty Distortion circuit that’s slowly building its gain over a nice slow Attack creates all kinds of exciting sonic mayhem. Then layer in Wave 1, add some Noise, and if the result needs a bit more low-frequency power, why not dial up the Sub oscillator?

When you’ve got something that sounds cool, drive it even further into the Dark Side with the master Drive control (that’s the big knob in the red panel) and limit the output to glue the whole thing together (and protect your eardrums).

“Uproar” excels at aggressively powerful tones: dial everything to the max, and you are straight into snarling monster-rock territory, with sounds that have a distinctly electric-guitar edge and can cut through a mix like an acetylene flame through butter.

Perhaps surprisingly, this raging machine can turn its hand to softer, subtler, atmospheric sounds too; and what’s neat about these is that they sound distinctly different to similar patches created in the traditional subtractive manner.

56 Inspiring Presets & Total Control In One Stylish Package!

In terms of control, you have full ADSR amp envelopes for the two base waveforms; Wave 1’s amp envelope also controls the Noise and Sub-oscillators. Wave 1 runs through a Saturation circuit and thence to the master Drive control and the output Limiter.

Wave 2’s signal path starts similarly but then progresses through a much more aggressive Distortion module, and a Bitcrusher.

All the distortion circuits – Saturation, Distortion and Bitcrusher – have LFOs and ADR envelopes so that they can impart their own movement and evolution to the sound. Hearing a cyclic pulse of saturation sculpting a raw sine wave is really very satisfying.

Round the back we have Chorus, Reverb, Delay and a hand-picked Amp Cabinet simulator, which compresses and contains Uproar’s sound and gives it a more vintage vibe.

This can help embed Uproar in a mix more easily: it gives a more traditional vibe to the sound, though it also dials back some of the characteristic high-frequency energy that gives Uproar its sheen of air. Try it for more classic mixes, though, and it might be exactly what you need.

Finally, there’s a nice big Glitch button right there on the front panel so you can musically randomise the whole machine with one click – generate tons of unique, personalised patches by Glitching away and seeing what happens! Be warned – this is utterly addictive!

What People Think About 50% off “Uproar” by Rhythmic Robot

  • "Uproar manages to deliver something very handy: An instrument that cranks out leads as if leads were pasta and it was a pasta-maker; and also manages to make most of those leads seem like it is pushed to the absolute max and then pumped through your best vintage amp that’s on its last legs. Final performance type sounds."

  • "This instrument was, for me, a surprise gem. When I opened it up, I didn’t expect much from it, but rapidly found that it was like crack cocaine for ears. Every sound has something that seems to make you want to listen to it more closely. It’s industrial without being abrasive and always very usable. I think listeners could become addicted. All I can say is I’m very glad I took a punt on this one."

  • "I love this damn thing. Its always got some crazy gritty and just slightly left of center type sound that always has a place in my music. I am constantly getting asked “where the hell did you get that synth from, that shit sounds crazy” and I say, good ‘ol Prof and Mongo of RR. So hopefully I’ve spawned some new interest."
