Phaedra and Rubycon rewired my brain. RIP Edgar.

Ditto. They were the two.

Great to hear it, Joe. Many thanks for posting.

People can hear a bunch of full tracks from Middle Distance over at Bandcamp if they are in the mood:

Perhaps not surprising. What did they do?
Cameleon synth ... later updated to Alchemy. And a couple of effect plugins, which I thought were mediocre.
That's pretty much it. Not a lot for so many years.

That said, Alchemy is one of my foundation synths. It's on pretty much everything I do.

Pete: Had to say give me iPhone apps in the App store in order to see it.

Will definitely give it a try,Scott.
Or should we call you Eno, now that you have gone into infinite variations?  ;)

(I recently picked up a couple of the Eno apps.)

Glad to hear it Chris. Yes, the first track is the weakest for me too, but then the album really begins and is a mighty fine trip that could go on forever.

I created an almost identical sound by feeding a guitar-like synth sound
through a phaser then into a tremelo effect and adjusting them a bit.

I'd imagine the Jenkins guy could get that sound by sending a fairly clean
electric guitar through a multi-effect pedal that has both phaser and tremelo effects.

The tremelo, as Pete suggested, is the main wobbly part.

Yep, I'm constantly amazed by companies putting one patch or one style of music in a video to highlight an instrument that otherwise does so many things. Their emphasis is clearly on the flashy/cool/mindless video rather than the sound and potential of what they are selling.

My view on their synths is that they are generally very flexible when you dig into them, and they do lots of nice things. I don't think they ALL sound the same.

I'm actually not a big fan of analog (analog sound too much the same to me -- which is a clue), so that they are not great emulations is not a problem here.

I'd rather have the enticing variety of the Native Instrument synth set than these. I use NI a lot more.
