Rhythmic Robot has released the Loopscape Tape Loop Synthesizer, a sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Inspired by the experimental soundscapes produced by 70s pioneers like Brian Eno, Loopscape is a synthesiser that creates endlessly modulating, evolving complexities of sound from raw waveforms recorded onto looped sections of audio tape.
It is richly warm, thoroughly analogue, and every sonic inch of it has been printed to oxide and passed across the playback heads of vintage tape gear of the past. This is the sound of science meeting art: the depth of analogue synthesis run through real tape spools. And look – it’s covered in knobs and sliders, too!
- Three virtual Tape Loops running 24-bit recordings of real analog tape.
- Each Loop can be loaded with Saw, Double Saw, Triangle, Square, Sine or Noise waveforms.
- Each Loop can have its length chosen from 0.5, 0.66, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 and 17 seconds.
- Each Loop has a switchable High / Low pass resonant filter.
- Each Loop has four LFOs: Filter, Amp 1, Amp 2 and Pitch.
- LFO wave shapes can be chosen from Sine, Triangle, Sawtooth, Square and Random.
- Full AHDSR envelopes for each Loop.
- Global tape-based Effects section with Saturation, Chorus, Flanger and Delay.
Loopscape for Kontakt is available to purchase for £34.95 GBP.
