Red Bull TATS Synth

Client: Red Bull
Type: Sound design for a virtual synthesizer

‘TATS’ is an online synthesizer game built in Ubud (Bali) for RedBull Mindgamers platform curated by Tatsuya Takahashi (former Korg’s chief engineer). We were hired to create the sound design of the game. We all lived and worked together for a month in a perk-filled villa surrounded by beautiful diverse landscapes.

Bringing the synth online allowed us to create a more collaborative experience where users can share their compositions and build on top of each other’s music. In the game, we present players with one module at a time, breaking down subtractive synthesis step by step, which wouldn’t be possible on a physical synth.
Additionally, we were able to add exciting digital elements to make each module easier to understand, such as the visual cues that allow players to not only hear but also visualize how each control manipulates the sound.
