Today I serve Arctic Rooster. It’s a sort of neo-retro organic synthesizer for Kontakt.
It is based on very short waveforms, serving as ‘oscillators’, that has been cut from recording of an authentic Icelandic rooster that I took this summer. Also there is the oscillator bank made of waveforms that I took from recording of my own voice.
Arctic Rooster features
- 15 waveforms in 3 oscillator banks.
- Wood finishing enclosure.
- 3 memory banks.
- LCD display.
- 3 LFOs and lots of knobs.
The Arctic Rooster library is available as a free download. Requires Kontakt 4.2.4 or newer, full version.
