Boscomac has announced the release of Viola Organista, a free instrument ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
There are those who remember from Leonard de Vinci numerous weapons designs, its war machines, other pictorial works, sculptures, his mathematical approach and some philosophical reflections, etc.
Then there are those who will remember his musical instrument. Yes, I did say “musical instrument” and among all his inventions, the “Viola Organista” is one of the most sensitive.
This is a keyboard instrument that offers a sound like a viol. The idea is ingenious: a system of wheels with horsehair is fixed for rub the taut strings. Under the action of a key, the sound begins to vibrate, result of friction. The expression of this instrument is impressive because the player can play Crescendo on a keyboard!
Leonard did never have built his idea and the first traces of such an instrument back to the early 17th century. Today there is a single copy dating from 1625 kept in MIM (Musee des instruments de musique / Brussels). And even today, there is a single virtual copy, available here in MIB (Musee des instruments de Boscomac / Web), for you, friends of the Baroque.
The ensemble is a free download at Boscomac. Donations are appreciated.

Boscomac has announced Bit Torsion, a free distortion effect for Native Instruments Reaktor.
Boscomac’s Bit Torsion for Reaktor offers “animated distortion”.
As its name suggests, it’s not an emulation of bagpipes but rather an effect of mass destruction of signal. Particularly effective on Drums, I define it as a “Animated distortion.”
“Distortion” because it is here to reduce the bit, the sample rate, add gain, feedback, filtering frequency, clipping, folding, etc. “Animated” because this module has a random sequencer particular: the user chooses the settings, the direction and intensity of modulation that follows data generated randomly. Hmm, what a program!
Bit Torsion is available as a free download (requires full version of Reaktor 5.9). Donations are appreciated.

The Delight Delay effect for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Very easy to use, this delay grooves with guitars, runs with synths, installs synchronized vibes and many other things …

Boscomac has introduced The Chiller, a free synthesizer ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
The Chiller Omni-Synthesizer for Reaktor by Boscomac.
THE CHILLER is an omni-synthesizer which includes a bass section, synth section and a string section. Inspired by the ARP Omni, it is very easy to use and offers a synthetic orchestra on hand.
The instrument delivers a sound cold, reminiscent of the eighties and the new wave. The bass section is monophonic (active from C0 to C4) and other sections cover the entire keyboard. All sections can be played together.
In the autumn, let’s play with the chiller.
The Chiller is a free download. Donations are appreciated.
