Download Method: Kontakt Hub
Mini Magic is a new line of very affordable instruments from Synth Magic. Mini Magic - Eclectic Electric Vol 2 is a collection of rare and sought after analogue and digital synth sounds (just under 2 GB in wav format and compressed using NI's lossless compression)
Full version of Kontakt 5.6.6 required. Please don't buy this if you intend to use it with Kontakt Player.
Mini Magic - Eclectic Electric Vol 2 comes with our Magic Dial in center place and can be used to control a number of synth controls with just one turn of the Magic Dial.
By simply activating the Led above each dial you can then move the dials and create offsets of dial movements, so one turn of the Magic dial will then move the active dials in varying degrees dependent upon the offset you have made for each dial.
Mini Magic - Eclectic Electric Vol 2 can be used to create sounds in the vain of Boards of Canada and LO-FI experimental music, Ambiant/chill out, Jungle/breakbeat, house and all kinds of electronica etc.
over 100 presets supplied which sound great and are ready to drop into your next production or roll your own sounds using the custom interface.
Steve always delivers on his sound design. And this just further gives proof. Whether your producing music for movies, soundtracks, television or commercials. You can't go wrong with Synth Magic. I myself have never been able to touch 99 percent of all the synth in this or any of Synth Magics catalog but I know I am getting a pretty good representation of each. Great job!
Eclectic Magic Delivers
Overall this is a good package that has sufficient variety in the sample/instrument choices to cover a wide range of bases and needs.
The interface is straightforward and will certainly not overwhelm new users of Kontakt but offers enough bread and butter tools to vary the sonic character of the presets and samples.
The twin oscillators allow sample layering with a simple balance slider to vary the overall volume between each oscillator. The large central knob in the interface allows the LFO (Speed and Depth), Filter (Cutoff and Resonance) and Pitch (Speed and Depth) to be adjusted together. By setting the controls in advance you can control, up to a point, where the modulation starts to kick in. This allows for some very interesting variations in sonic character that is a credit to the developer in making this sort of interface decision. It's a very nice touch!
The effect choices such as the Phaser are in keeping with the spirit of the plugin and the convolution reverb further sculpts the space.
It would be all too easy to highlight the lack of separate envelopes for each oscillator as a disadvantage in this day and age of multi-enveloped synths but again that would take away from this plugin especially at so modest a price.
If you want to have some interesting, less than usual synth sounds that have character wrapped up in an interface that is straightforward but invites exploration and at a low price point then you should really consider this offering from Synth Magic.
More Mini Magic! I love it!!
I have all of the mini Magic series and I love them. I would say of all the mini Magic instruments this one is my second favorite. Very Lush and full sounds I use it mostly for back ground instrumentation like listed with a pad or a lead.
Synth Magic quality synth
Perfect complement to Part 1.
