funk synth basses, lofi dusty keys, woozy synths, glitchy leads and tinkling percussion.


Synth-hop explores the wide source material of hiphop, which spans from the sampled synths of P Funk to lofi keys to more modern digital sounds and abstract textures. From classic funk drumbeats to booming 808 bass. The synth patches range from west coast G Funk synths to UK hiphop to the eclectic sounds of the LA beatscene. The Synth-Hop pack is compatible with both the Circuit Tracks and OG.

Although primarily a genre built around the use of vintage samples of real instruments, funk and jazz, hiphop and the wider hiphop-inspired genres have incorporated many synth sounds and of course sampled classic synths. The west coast sounds of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg drew from the synth sounds of P Funk. Modern expressions of hiphop, such as the LA beatscene which includes Flying Lotus, MNDSGN and Nosaj Thing have fully incorporated synths into their sound, inspired by electronica as much as classic hiphop.

This pack was inspired by such artists, as well as UK hiphop, triphop and leftfield electronic producers as varied as DJ Shadow, Wagon Christ, Dabrye & Boards of Canada.

64 patches range from funk synth basses, lofi dusty keys, woozy synths, glitchy leads and tinkling percussion. The Macros mostly follow the suggested functions of the Circuit Tracks to facilitate an intuitive workflow. 

The 64 samples are nearly all drum sounds, featuring many minimally processed funk hits, as well as synthesized hits made with Serum and also given some lofi processing. All of the synthesized hits are pitched to G, including the obligatory 808 bass. The drums can always be processed even more on the actual Circuit using the repitching, distortion and filtering, which is demonstrated in the included Projects/Sessions.

Included are 16 demo Projects/Sessions which include reconstructions and mashups of tracks which provided inspiration for the patch creation, as well as some original ideas.

LDM Devices

LDM Design is a project which started life in 2016, recreating Monome apps in Max For Live to use natively on the Launchpad Mini, which are still freely available on his website.He also created the popular glitchy multi-FX sequencer devices Manglerack and MangleFX, influenced by the legendary Illformed Glitch VST. Since then the project has expanded into making all kinds of M4L devices, always taking care in designing a clean, unique GUI.Many of his devices also show a love for introducing various degrees of chaos and probability into music production. His first release for Isotonik, the LP Pack, continued recreating and improving upon classic Monome apps and original ideas to expand the creative potential of the Novation Launchpad Mk1 and Mk2. Next, as a homage to the great Brian Eno and his creative processes, LDM then released the best-selling Chance 10 Pack, which is a selection of modules utilizing chaos and probability to affect various elements of production. There are a number of great free devices available on his website – Chords in Key converts single MIDI notes into chords based on a set key, Gravity Delay is a fun ‘bouncing ball’ MIDI delay, and Autosputter is for live glitchy audio slicing, based on the old Instajungle VST.LDM Design continues to work on projects for Isotonik and his own website which will be available soon.
