KONTAKT ANALOG SYNTH COLLECTION
I have been
using vintage and modern analog synths for years in songs, demos and
YouTube videos. In
every case my main goal has been to find the signature or biggest
sound each one produces.
That comes from being a metal guitarist and wanting to find
that midrange bass and treble heavy synth sound that fills the same
region in music.
the synths used in this Kontakt Instrument Collection are capable of
the edgiest, hardest, thick and metallic sounds in my humble opinion
and have increased in rarity and value over the years.
This collection is the means I chose to resurrect my favorite
patches from each and also play some synths polyphonically.
Parker Synthacon and Microcon; EMS Synthi VCS3; Moog Minimoog and
Voyager; Roland TB-303 and MKS-80; EML 101; Arp 2600 and Avatar;
Macbeth M5; Buchla 259; OSCar; Metasonix Wretch Machine; Serge
Creature; Oberheim SEMS and OB-8 and a Eurorack Modular.
samples were recorded directly or pulled from demos and original
recordings and comprised of either single or stacks of oscillators
long enough to hear the beating of the oscillators and looped
perfectly to feel they are constantly moving and sound alive.
Some are multi sampled and others are single samples spread
across the keyboard but still sounding great due to really good
custom GUI is a full synthesizer control set that allows you to take
any of these sounds and design new patches.
There are six filters from which to choose; pitch and filters envs
and LFOs; three types of modulation (flanger, chorus and phaser),
digital delay, glide, mono modes
and up to eight voice unison with detune.
You can also use the GUI to load your own samples or combine
these samples in new combinations.
are also some customized patches and that use the original oscs in
ways that were never possible, such as using the TB-303 saw and
square together as sustaining pads and emulating the mod structure
of the original Buchla 259 osc.
collection requires full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5 but
will work in 30 minute Demo mode in the Kontakt Player.
If you don’t have Kontakt and just want the samples to load
into another player many of the samples have loop marker files
created by Wavelab with them in the REwire Samples Folder and can be
recognized by many software players.
Most needed some loop adjustment in Kontakt and need to be
fine-tuned to exact pitch usually by +-20 cents.
They are all 16bit 44.1khz
of my initial collection will get updates and lifetime support.
