Hollow Sun Hogmanay Special: SineSynth for Kontakt

Hollow Sun SineSynth

Hollow Sun has announced the release of SineSynth, a sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

It uses samples from a valve sinewave generator to create a variety of sounds from organs, sub-basses, leadlines and pads and more and the DETUNER control makes the sound thicker from mild detune to out-and-out discordant ring modulator sounds. There’s also an ADSR envelope to shape the sound.

The CRUNCH buttons introduce all sorts of distortions and tonal modifications which can be used individually or in combination to add overtones and harmonics while the PLAYBACK controls allow you to play polyphonically or monophically and in the mono modes, glide can be added. And there’s a vibrato oscillator with variable RATE. The VIA switches give plenty of options.

There’s also an echo effect and a convolution reverb with spring, plate and acoustic hall impulses to round things off.

I’ll be honest and admit that this is not the most versatile synth ever made but for pure and simple lead lines, solid basses, organ sounds and mellow pads, its simplicity (and silly price) takes some beating and it’s a pokey little synth in its own unique way!

Hollow Sun releases You Know 6 for Kontakt

Hollow Sun You Know 6

Hollow Sun has announced the release of You Know 6, a sound library for Kontakt featuring the sounds of the Juno-6 by Roland.

This year’s seasonal offering is an homage to the fabulous 80s DCO polysynth – ‘you know’ the one I refer to and it’s fairly obvious from the GUI!!!

But it comes with a few twists!

Firstly, it has a DETUNE control so that the waveforms can be detuned for a thicker sound that can rival the more serious two oscillator polysynths. It also has a multiwave LFO (compared with the original’s triangle wave only), a 12/24dB/OCtave switch on the filter and perhaps, most importantly, has two ADSR envelopes, a vast improvement over the original’s one envelope.

Not just that but we’ve sampled two banks of waveforms – one with the original’s gorgeously crusty, analogue bucket brigade chorus in all its rich, stereo and swirly wondrousness but also the raw waveforms so that you have the best of both worlds. The chorused bank allows some truly massive sounds to be created, especially with the detune control.

It also comes with 40 presets to get you started which range from supremely lush strings and pads to chunky basses, organs and spikey arpeggios.

  • Arpeggiator.
  • Waveform detune.
  • Two envelopes.
  • Multiwave LFO.

The You Know 6 is available to purchase for £2 GBP.
