Alien Artifact is a VST synth intended to inspire raw sonic creativity.

What does it sound like? What does it do? What happens when I press those alien keypads and move those green spheres?

I've had this for years. Not 100% guaranteed to work in your DAW but if it does then be prepared to waste a few hours creating weird, textural sounds.

Fun vst! Randomly plays weird and atmospheric sci-fi ambience. I experimented with it for hours and always generated new and unpredictable ambient sounds. Most useful for videogame music and sound effects.

I like random-and out of norm, I use modular synths. I suggest use a vst host with a wav. recorder, record your creations to your desktop then open your DAW and assign the wav. to a track. The same method I describe is perfect for modular synth, you never get the same sound twice-so, if you like a certain mix you make, always record your creations to your desktop, then create a folder, name it as you wish, then save the folders in your file you use for your sounds in your DAW-Hint####this how you can make loop sets that you can sell or upload for free swag from your band-I make loop sets to give away at my venues-many people who come to my shows are keyboardists, DJ's or EMCEE producers-or novices getting into the bizz-LOOPSETS that are different sounding than everyone else's is good extra money to buy new gear. It is good habit to record all your keyboard riffs, you will find instead of opening your DAW and wasting hours trying to midi track-you can just play all day in your host, working with your many synths, recording your riffs each by each and saving them, you can open the file later and then select the riffs that sound best in your works.

Not much if you ask me. Rather want to know what the hell I'm doing (wich slider does what?!) not doing something random, hoping it sounds acceptable.

This works great for all kinds of soundscapes and ambient sounds ... including backing sounds for games scores !!! Excellent !

It's not intended to be 'musical' in a traditional sense. It excels at creating weird atmospheres and textures. Perfect for soundscape work.

Well, I am not an expert in digital synthesizers. But I don't like this one. Sure, good for what it says it should do. But not in a tune except it is a totally ambient one...

Cool, hard to control, fun, not very musical but could be used in a musical fashion.
