Product Overview

Tronsonic's interpretation for Kontakt 5 of the late 70s Japanese preset synth (as used by OMD on many records), also including a few extra features such as polyphony, expression and a tape compression/damage effect.

In order to maintain the purity of the waveforms they chose not to sample to tape (hence the 'tape fx' section), but used valves and a chain of nearly 100 year old interstage transformers to capture the audio.

All of the presets are selectable via the interface (as with the real synth), as well as the effects/edit section under the red button. The tape input gain and warmth settings are also controllable via dedicated attack and decay envelopes, enabling a very accurate emulation of 'hitting' the tape, and its ensuing compression effects. The random gain, warmth and tone are synced to the tape speed frequency knob, which controls the wow and flutter.

Also included are a handful of extra presets, to show some examples of what's possible with this synth. The simplicity of its design is one of its most important features (apart from its sound), as it forces you to get creative with the controls (right click to midi assign) and really 'perform' with it.

Note: The FULL version of Kontakt 5.1 is required (NOT for Kontakt Player)

So unique...

If you like Soniccouture's Synthi, this is equally as weird (in the best way possible). There is just nothing else that sounds like it. Watch the videos on YouTube (especially the Sounds and Gear overview) for a good idea of what it is. If this is your thing (as it is mine) you won't be disappointed.

Kork M500, ne pas oublier que c'est un Korg M500 Micro-Preset !

Un synthé analogique dans kontakt 5
Rien à dire, il sonne et bien, réglage simple, effets efficace pour tous ype de musique.
Il est vraiment pas cher et on peu triturer pas mal de chose avec des basses, des leads etc...
Privilégiez des effets externe (Hardware) comme Lexicon, DBX, TubeTech ... pour redonner au son le "juice" et le grain analogue qui faut pour le rendre parfait.
J'adore et je recommande
Bravo Tronsonic
et Merci a Kontalkt Hub

Demo - Lissie

Listen to this wonderful demo by Aesqe. 'Lissie' uses the Tronsonic System 1000M for hihats, bass drums and "percussion"; no external effects, just a bit of default Ableton Live tape compression. Everything else is Tronsonic Kork M500
