The following libraries feature presets for Logics' EXS24 sampler
well as NI's Kontakt 4 (full retail version required, NOT the free-player)
Waveform 72 derives from the front end of a famous 70's monosynth - all 7 waveforms from the oscillators plus pink and white noise 'mellotronized' with 60s valve tape recording equipment.
9 different sets of samples sampled to worn tape for authentic vintage character - spanning over 7 octaves (each bank corresponding to the pure, unsynthesized waveforms and noise generators sampled pre-filter).
100 patches and 20 multis for Kontakt 4.2.2 or later
150 patches for EXS24
"love the waveform72 samples, a great antidote to the more sterile soundsets you often come across. Bags of character in there"
RICHARD X - producer - worked with Goldfrapp, Will Young, Sophie Ellis Bexter, Kylie Minogue, Steve Mason, Saint Etienne, Pet Shop Boys, Sugarbabes and more...
6 sample sets from this superb 70s string synth (the Logan melody 2) 'mellotronized' onto tape, using vintage 60s valve equipment and recorders.
Over 60 preset patches and 10 multis for Kontakt 4.2.2, and 80 patches for Esx24.
"I've got Waveform '72 and Logandy and love them. They have a wonderfully melancholy, aged texture and feel that comes across as very authentic..."
BILLY JOE BOWERS - producer/engineer - worked with AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Incubus,Limp Bizkit, Offspring, Johnny Cash, Guns'n'Roses etc
PROGRESSIVE CLAVI D6
Two sets of samples from the classic clavinet D6, with the emphasis on exploring new sonic possibilities from this string based keyboard. Sampled through 60's valve preamps to worn tape
Contains 2 sets of samples with over 40 patches each for Kontakt and Esx24 - patches differ across formats.
Distortion and Wah plus external amps turns this into a monster! Includes a few unexpected patches, to demonstrate the scope of the clavinet as a different type of synthesizable sound source. With an extreme azimuth setting on the tape heads , giving a more 'damaged', brittle sound, these artifact flecks help the distortion work well - enabling bite on low settings with the clarity of the instrument retained.
A simple single set of samples capturing the essence and weight of the Rhodes mark 1 stage piano.
Contains one set of samples with 20 patches each for Kontakt and EXS24 - patches differ across formats.
"I'm sort of obsessed with a good dirty Rhodes sound, and I've produced something close with 4-5 effects on a Scarbee Rhodes. Your Rhodetron doesn't need any FX and it's better than what I've come up with. These synths 'sound' like synths. You've been able to accurately reproduce analog warmth in the digital realm better than any other soft synth I've ever played."
J.S. GREENIER - songwriter / film & television co 4/5 SOUNDSANDGEAR
All 9 drawbars, bass pedals and percussion harmonics from the legendary prog organ - the Hammond m100.
With over 35 drawbar setting patches for Kontakt 4.2.2 - samples compatible with Esx24.
Designed to evoke the magic of late 60s/early 70s music.
As used by Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and many other greats from the late 60s and early 70s.
THE DARK HORSE
Featuring the raw unfiltered sawtooth and square waveforms, plus white noise from the amazing analogue Kawai 100f synth, sampled through 60s valve equipment to worn tape.
350 different patches (175 each for Kontakt 4.2.2 and Exs24).
Some very surprising and interesting new sounds from this little known synth - it goes to show that there are some fantastic sounding oscillators hidden away in obscure instruments like this one.
