Archetype: Tim Henson

As Tim eloquently put it: this one f**ks.



Everything about Tim Henson is distinct. His artistic identity is defined by an unrelenting pursuit of his own aesthetics.

Many times deriving inspiration from the least obvious sources, his tone and style are, in every sense of the word, as unique as he is unapologetic about them. In a world where many try to fit by reiterating what has worked for others, Tim thrives in the unprecedented. 

Innovation and progress often necessitate a combination of brilliance, relentlessness, and a burning desire to obliterate the cutting edge. There aren’t many that evoke such traits as him.

We proudly present you, Archetype: Tim Henson.

Our intelligent Multivoicer algorithm allows you to add 4 pitch shifted voices on top of your signal. The voicing library provides absolute control over the root note, modes, and chords for harmonizing as well as arpeggiating.

Activate MIDI to receive MIDI chords or notes which will harmonize your DI signal to the MIDI-instructed pitch.
