THE NEUTRON PAD SYNTHESIZER is the third and last in a series of three inspiring Kontakt 5 instruments, the so called ‘Blue Orb Series’. Neutron is a dual oscillator synthesizer intended to make atmospheric and lush pad sounds.
But don’t be fooled by it’s name. Also bass, synths, strings and other types of sounds are possible with this versatile synthesizer.
60 different waveforms to choose from, 30 per oscillator. Each OSC has 3 envelope generators.(Amplifier, Filter and Pitch) and 3 different filters, (LP, HP and BP). There are 2 LFO’s, a Pitch LFO and a Filter LFO with a choice between 4 different waveforms (Sine, Saw, Square & Random), or the LFO can be switched off. Both LFO’s can be used at the same time. NEUTRON already comes with a big selection of sounds for you to play with (200 instruments and 76 multis) of which 140 are pad sounds and 32 are ambient and FX sounds.
The big amount of controls encourages you to make your own. The possibillities are endless. Be ready to enter the world of Neutron. You won't regret it.
THE SOUNDS can be modulated via Velocity, Aftertouch, Key Follow and the Modulation wheel. And to top this all off, you have a choice between 8 different FX (Digital Reverb, Digital Delay, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Compressor, 2-Band EQ, Skreamer distortion) and an Arpeggiator. with an integrated arp pattern generator.

Highly Recommended - Inspirational Sounds
Like TRIODE and SAFFRON, this final installment in the BLUE ORB TRILOGY of synths is a fantastic bargain!
Excellent selection of warm, smooth pads + plenty of other strong sounds as well...leads, FX, ambiences etc.
Everything is very well programmed and put together with great attention to detail.
CPU use is very good so far.
GUI is intuitive...creating your own sounds is straightforward and lots of fun.
This is an excellent library!! I love it!
Reminiscence of the inspiring presets of yesteryear
This is my latest purchase from CL-Projects. This developer is in my opinion, one of the best ones in the field of recreating the sounds and presets from the legendary digital keyboards, such as Roland D50 and Korg M1. Although I was still a child when these were released, many new age, ambient and cinematic artists from the 80's and 90's, whose music often inspire my own work, have used similar sounds in their compositions. Because my CD collection is full of instrumental synth music, I know many of such sounds intimately and the products from CL-Projects make them a part of my, now quite substantial Kontakt library collection. Neutron is a library of presets, some which sounds quite similar, but I gather that real strength of this Kontakt instrument lies in the possibility to build your own presets, using the included sound sources and the hailed A-B structure and workflow. The built-in effect section is equally important and the effects are decent, however they occasionally suffer from slight glitches and pops, especially when being tweaked in real-time. But all and all, this is a good investment if you are into inspiring presets of the yesteryear. You may also want to pair this library with Pad Factory Bundle from the same developer, for even more sonic options.
This is Pad Heaven!
I love this instrument, I am old enough to remember drooling over synths and workstations such as the D50 and M1 back in the day when few music enthusiasts could afford them.
Lush is the understatement to describe the pristine sounds this instrument produces from the expertly crafted patches using the pure sounding 24bit wav samples.
The string sounds alone, hold their own when pitched against dedicated Orchestral libraries costing
hundreds of dollars more. This is a real gem!
Beautiful, inspiring retro 80s-90s synth sounds - focused on pads, but also some great leads, arps/sequencers, and effects. Just another great delivery from CL-Projects.
Demo - Satin Strings
This is using a single out of the box preset called SATIN STRINGS, with no tweaking of the preset or any external fx processing. Just a short keyboard exploration.
