Play haunting melodies on 11 additional chromatic instruments!
For each mark tree, you will find two melodic instruments:
One version ('TUNED') is based on the tuning of all single chime bars, and gives a very organic, slightly imperfect sound.
The second version ('TUNED-B') is based on the most appropriate single chimes samples and uses extended stretching. In total, you'll find 6 melodic instruments that can be played over up to 6 octaves and easily combined and layered together or with other sounds to create your own instruments.
Five melodic multi-programs (.nkm) are also provided to give you an example of the possibilities, and include bell-like instruments, carillon emulations, pads, reversed chimes...
ORGANIC TEXTURES AND DYNAMIC SFX
Explore new sonic territories with 8 responsive and dynamic sound design instruments!
Based on extra long loops (24 loops, up to 9 velocity layers, 30sec+)
Use your mod wheel to morph between these loops to create dynamic and organic soundscapes.
5 included multis (.nkm) push this concept further by combining layers of Texture instruments and assigning extra parameters to the mod wheel (pitch, reverb send, filters...) These highly responsive presets include risers, soundscapes and pure sound design explorations.
They are easy and fun to play! Very much in the vein of the multis in CYMBAL ROLLS
FILTERS: A high-pass and a low pass filter help you cut out unwanted frequencies
REVERB SELECTOR: pick one of 12 custom Impulse Responses
ATTACK: bring this up for mellow and smooth sweeps without audible strokes, or down to hear the impact of the chime bar.
RELEASE: maximum release values provide an authentic decay of the instrument, while lower values help replicate a chocked sound.
FOCUS: reduce the stereo width to easily integrate the instrument in your mix
EQ: add a slight boost of mid-frequencies
BRIGHT: high frequencies boost
FX: pre-programmed stereo delay effect
COMP: a parallel compressor used on the tuned instruments to control dynamics and increase sustain
Behind-the-scene: complex sample mapping and programming to achieve an intuitive, realistic instrument.
Most of the magic of bar chimes actually takes place after a glissando, when each bar keeps on moving and gently hits neighbouring bars in a subtle, organic and unpredictable way.
CHIMES DELUXE perfectly reproduces this behaviour by using ground-breaking sampling technics and powerful scripting and programing. This complex behind-the-scene technology guarantees that no two glissandos will sound the same, while delivering a realistic instrument that remains fun, easy and intuitive to play.
THREE DIFFERENT MARK TREES
- ETHNIC: a delicate and exotic sounding mark tree (20 thin and hollow chimes)
STUDIO: very rich sounding, with a double row of 30 chimes
CONCERT: loud, powerful and cutting sound (33 chimes)
