Nat Motte's Top Five
Ever since they first connected over a mutual man-crush on Buck 65 in a University of Colorado physics class, 3OH!3 has been packing clubs with their trademark blend of dirty synths and even dirtier come-ons.
Gangsta Lead (Factory Sound Bank / Malstrom Patches / Monosynths)
I use this patch ALL THE TIME!! it's the lead line for the second half of the chorus on our song "Chokechain" and It is all over both of our records. I love the grittiness of it, and distorting it with the Scream is the cat's tits. I kind of feel like this patch represents the whole sound of our group.
Wonderbas (Factory Sound Bank / Subtractor Patches / Bass)
I love the deep and clear bass sound of the Wonderbass for continuous, held-out bass notes and layering synth lines. Get a little freaky on cranking up that Frequency slider on Filter 1, and who knows what will happen...
Harpsichord (Factory Sound Bank / NN-XT Sampler Patches / Piano)
I love the deep, archaic sound of this patch. Distorting is with the Scream and popping a little bit of delay on there is pretty fun too. Real haunting, real creepy.
B Grand Piano 1.0 (Factory Sound Bank / NN-XT Sampler Patches / Piano)
A wonderful sounding piano! Great for writing songs and just starting from scratch. Sounds really cool with an exact copy of this patch with reverb on it, layered on top of a clean piano track. I like EQing the piano for with a thinner, higher, more lo-fi sound, or conversely a broader, bass-heavy sound!
Combing Lead (Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Lead Synths)
A brand new discovery and I can't stop attempting to make EPIC tracks using this patch! It has a HUGE sound and cool delay out of the box. Ibiza here I come!

Relatively unknown in the UK Grime scene before 2011, Preditah’s ascension to the top of the Grime scene has been nothing less than extraordinary.
