Remco’s Ohmicide:Melohman demo track

One month ago we posted dutch artist Remco’s demo track for the Symptohm:Melohman PE and now he shows up again, this time showing his experiments with the Ohmicide:Melohman distortion. His Ohmicide demo track shows that this distortion – despite what many could think – is not only suitable for hard and agressive distortion grain. The owners of this unit know that the Ohmicide palette goes far beyond that, crossing the huge field of subtle distortion and ‘distortion to add warmth’. This demo shows us some percussive elements dictating the rhythm for some atmosphere/texture sounds, while the Ohmicide helps creating a global ‘soul’ for the whole landscape, the final result being anything but cold…


Demo track for the Symptohm:Melohman Performer Edition free synth

Dutch artist Remco has made a nice demo track for the Symptohm:Melohman Performer Edition free synth. Except for the drum sounds (for which he used Drumatic) all sounds are from the Symptohm, take a listen! And then if you want to check out his tracks, there are many in his Soundcloud profile


12 reasons to love the Symptohm:Melohman synth

The Music Radar site is asking their audience “What are the best VST-synths you can buy?“. Swiss DJ and music producer  – and Symptohm:Melohman enthousiast – Dominic Reamonn answered their poll and copied us on his mail to Music Radar. You can guess his vote, but not necessarily his very own emotional reasons to love this powersynth 🙂

“My vote goes to Ohm Force’s Symptohm. Why? Because of all the synths out there that I have tried, Symptohm is the only one that:

  • Has an Ape’s ass as part of its interface
  • Has envelopes and LFOs per parameter (excluding Minimonsta, of course)
  • Contains 4 banks of filters with a total of 30+ filters
  • Has an Ape’s ass as part of its interface
  • Has delay times that can be LFOed for total glitch fests
  • Scares cats
  • Is fairly unknown, which makes me look different, and thus better
  • Was made by a sandwich company.
  • Can produce totally unique and expressive sounds with next to no effort at all.
  • Has an established YouTube fanbase centered around the works of Jack McOck and Professor Von Schwarzenberg.
  • Doesn’t crash any more.
  • Has an Ape’s ass as part of its interface.

And of course, because it has an Ape’s ass as part of its interface, I can spend less time purring over animal porn and more on making music. Ça va de soi!”


Christmas before time!

Symptohm:Melohman Performer Edition now is freeware !

Two months ago we announced our pricing changes in our “it’s still business, but let’s keep it reasonable” disclaimer, and we listened to all kind of reactions. Some guys from the audio/plug-in industry might have said that we’re naïve or anti-corporate, while the music press has warmly reacted and dozens of individual music producers have written to us to comment on how much they share the same point of view about it all. No need to say that, among the industry, the press and music producers, we’ll always listen to – and work for – the latter. Like you, we love music and music making, and will always do our part to support the scene.

The pricing changes were only the beginning: from this december, we invite all music producers in the world to download and use for free the Performer Edition of our Symptohm:Melohman powersynth. That’s exactly what you’re understanding: Symptohm:Melohman is now freeware, joining our rock solid stinky Frohmage filter. Get it now and tell your friends!

Exploring new sounds is priceless! And when we say priceless, we really mean it 🙂


Symptohm melodies from Vienna


This time the Melohman vibes come from Austria, land of the wild – yet highly domesticable – Oinky Poinky specimens. The Oinky Poinky Demixed track was done using only the Symptohm:Melohman synth and fried sugar’n’nutella toasts. The chilled melodies tells the blurred visions through a Vienna’s subway window during a 5 minute ride in an Autumn afternoon in direction of LoFi Records office…(picture below)



Russian electronica with Symptohm:Melohman Performer Edition


Denis Klutch is an ohmfriend from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. He’s a former chiptune/tracker composer, but there’s a piece of gear that made him come to the DAW+plugin side of the force. Beside kick and snare sounds, which have been created with his Waldorf Attack, all his tracks were made with Symptohm:Melohman Performer Edition. There’s a remix for Sasha’s Mongoose and another for Beastie Boys’ Body Movin’ – among some other lo-tek tunes..


Zombies and Undead

Zombies have always been excellent company for a weekend. A point of view that our ohmfriend John H. Van Eaton very probably shares, specially after his recent work on the FX and soundtrack for new Urbanchillers’ horror comedy movie “E-Discordia Dating for Zombies & the Undead” trailer. A lot of Symptohm:Melohman, several Ohmicide:Melohman spices, some Quad Frohmage sugar and a loads and loads of blood!
