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