Commissioned by the performer and owner, award winning composer Christian Henson, who along with the Spitfire team, has deeply sampled these other worldly tones in perfect harmony with the needs of any modern music maker.

SampleTekk Emperor MkII

The owner achieved to install a very high-tech mechanism in the piano designed by Wayne Stahnke that operates the piano keys and pedals with more than 1.000 steps accuracy and is controlled by a computer system.

Soniccouture updates Ondes for Kontakt to v2

Soniccouture has announced version 2 of Ondes, a virtual Ondes Martenot instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Soniccouture Ondes v2
Sharper Look, Sharper Sound- Sometimes small improvements can make the biggest difference.

Ondes remains largely unchanged from the original version, one of our most enduringly popular instruments. But look closely and you’ll see that the GUI is much crisper, more solid and clearer on the screen. And most importantly of all, the sound is now much more authentic; the different oscillator samples are completely phase-locked.

What does that mean? Previously, each waveform sample was layered with the others so that you could blend the oscillator shapes as on the original unit; this worked pretty well, but resulted in a slightly wobbly, phasey sound – nice and fat, but not exactly like a real Ondes Martenot, which should sound like a single waveform. Phase-locking the samples together fixes this very nicely, taking the Ondes sound to a new level of realism.

Ondes v2 is available for purchase for 99 EUR. Until August 15th, 2014, a 30% discount is available with coupon code H3Y36TD at checkout. Ondes users can upgrade to version 2 at no charge.
