The Triode lead synthesizer is the second in a series of three inspiring Kontakt 5 instruments, the so called ‘Blue Orb Series’. Triode is a dual oscillator synthesizer intended to make fat, analog and digital sounding lead sounds. But don’t be fooled by it’s name. Also pads, synths, strings and other types of sounds are possible with this versatile synthesizer.

TRIODE already comes with a big selection of sounds for you to play with (184 instruments and 64 multis) of which 140 are lead sounds. The big amount of controls encourages you to make your own. The possibilities are endless.

There are 60 different waveforms to choose from, 30 per oscillator. Each OSC has 3 envelope generators.(Amplifier, Filter and Pitch) and 3 different filters, (Low Pass, High Pass and Band Pass). There are 2 Low Frequency Oscillators (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.
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.
Inspirational Synth Sounds!
I've been in this business for a very long time and have used a lot of music tech gear...
Triode is one of very few purchases that has instantly inspired me to just go and create some music! The sounds are beautifully produced - warm and punchy. More importantly they are very useable and easy to mesh together in a mix.
Don't be put off by the LEAD SYNTH' moniker...there are various styles of sounds included in the presets from sweeping pads to driving arpeggiators and Triode does them all very well indeed.
The GUI is easy to use and intuitive to understand...creating your own timbres is quite straightforward and loads of fun! The modulation possibilities are quite varied + easy to tweak and automate.
CPU use - very good so far, no issues at all. Compares very favourably with my other synths.
Triode un synthé "Lead"
Rien à de plus, le titre explique tout.
Il peut sonner vintage analogue et moderne numérique, il est facile d'utilisation, simple et efficace.
Il y a 184 présets lein de réglage, en bref il a tout pour faire des lead, des pads et des sons plus subtils de folie, berf, Un synthé quoi.
Utilisez de préference des effets externe (Hardware type lexicon et DBX) pour grossir le son, lui donner un grain, du coup il devient Terrible !!

As with other CL-Projects Kontakt synths this is classy fat and very usabe. Top stuff!
The best in the series
I mostly use pads, textures and atmospheres in my work when talking about synth sounds, but I was very surprised (in a positive way) with the quality and expressiveness of the lead sounds included in this particular library. As with the rest of the Blue Orb series from CL-Projects, this installment is capable of handling the other types of synth sounds as well due to the cleverly put together GUI plus available sound sources and effects. I can probably say with confidence that Triode is my personal favorite of the series now when I've finally completed the collection.
Demo - The Man Who Sold the Moon
Check out this demo from Chameleon Music. With the exception of drums and percussion, ALL sounds come from TRIODE, SAFFRON and NEUTRON - CL Projects BLUE ORB TRILOGY. (Drums / percussion from Heavyocity's 'Evolve' Kontakt library).
