Tenzu Wave is the sound design and soundware label for Australian musician and producer Andrew Flores.
"My passion for sound design began sometime in the mid to late nineties when I developed an interest in synthesizers and samplers through my love of industrial techno and metal music. I think my earliest sound design attempts involved running a Yamaha PSR-310 keyboard through a Zoom guitar multi-effects unit, tweaking the guitar effects to create the right sound because you couldn’t modify the keyboard preset sounds in any way. In the following years I got hold of an Ensoniq Mirage keyboard sampler which introduced me to more conventional synth programming, then the Akai S01 sampler which I eventually upgraded to an S2000 sampler which opened up the possibilities of sound design through sampling. Over the last decade and a bit I discovered the wonders of software synthesizers (starting out using the fabulous Stomper, SimSynth, VAZ and TS404 and progressing from there…) and now, like many of you, I don’t really use hardware synths and samplers anymore..."
