Tronsonic releases DCO ‘Tronto’ synth module for Kontakt

Tronsonic DCO Tronto synth

Tronsonic has announced a new set of DCO oscillators for Tronto, the vintage polysynth sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The word ‘precision’ is used for two reasons – firstly the digitally controlled oscillators of the original analogue synth maintain a very accurate tuning, and secondly because no tape was used in the recordings of these waveforms, which in turn keeps them very true and precise to the originals (allowing a less characterful and more ‘scientific’ synthesis to take place within Kontakt).

This makes DCO the perfect companion for Tronto, as they contrast each other perfectly.
In exchange for not using tape, the tape saturation plugin within Kontakt 5 is enabled, along with the regular saturation effect AND Tronsonic’s own tape and valve impulse response within the convolution reverb. This is all simultaneously activated with the ‘saturation’ button on the interface, and really makes a difference.

DCO for Tronto features

  • 7 phase aligned waveforms from a legendary 1980s Japanese DCO analogue synth.
  • Recorded using vintage valve pre-amps without tape, for waveform precision.
  • A choice of 30 filters.
  • 6 LFOs, two per section (oscillator, filter, amplifier).
  • 2 global LFOs and an AHD envelope modulating each of the 6 LFOs.
  • 36 variations of spring reverb.
  • Over 100 Presets (many with a ‘modular’ style sound).
  • Link synths with ‘Tronto’ in multi-mode for dual oscillators and control.
  • Unique tape ‘saturation’ button with custom tape/tube impulse response.
  • With tuned self-oscillation and extra fat sawtooth/square bass samples.

The sound library is available for the introductory price of £14.99 GBP.

Tronsonic releases Micro packs for Kontakt

Tronsonic has announced Micro packs, a new range of sample libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Tronsonic Micro packs
Tronsonic Detroit Hammond Mikcro pack for NI Kontakt.

These can be seen as extra ‘tape banks’, in the same way for example that the mellotron has it’s own range, though of course these are virtual (the original samples however have all been recorded to different varieties of tape at some point).

The interface enables full control over how ‘damaged’ you’d like the tape to sound, as well as how expressive the instrument is – having controls over velocity, velocity to filter cutoff and adsr envelopes.

There is a constantly running tape machine behind the scenes, with the ‘degrader’ allowing you precise control over how much you’d like the tape to be damaged, via volume, tone or pitch. The ‘warble’ generator is completely randomized, so no damage will ever sound the same, and can give you instant ‘Boards of Canada’ type sounds, should you wish.

Tronsonic Micro packs

  • Detroit Hammond – Moody damaged 7th chords from the Hammond m100.
  • Electric Harpsichord – Harpsichord preset from the Farfisa 110pro 1970′s portable organ.
  • DubDrum 141 – 16 variations of a beat from the Hammond auto-vari64 drum machine, dubbed out through 2 daisy-chained wem copicat tape delays. Tempo at 70.5/141 bpm.

The Micro packs are available to purchase for £1.99 GBP each.

  • Recorded with 50 year old valve pre-amps to vintage tape.
  • A choice of 30 filters.
  • 6 LFOs, two per section (oscillator, filter, amplifier).
  • 2 global LFOs and an AHD envelope modulating frequencies of each of the 6 LFOs.
  • 4 varieties of spring reverb with 9 variations each.
  • 185 instruments, 15 multis.
  • Unique ‘saturation’ button with custom tape/tube impulse response.
  • Choice of 3 interface colours.

Introduction of Tronto vintage polysynth for Kontakt 5.

Tronto for Kontakt is available to purchase for the introductory price of £14.99 GBP until October 1st, 2012 (50% off regular).

Azimuth Generator soundtrack multi-synth by Tronsonic

Tronsonic has announced the release of the Azimuth Generator, a soundtrack multi-synthesizer instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Tronsonic Azimuth Generator

The concept behind the Azimuth Generator is to be a source of inspiration, and hopefully take you to undiscovered places on your musical journey!:), split into 3 main parts – bass, mid-section
and upper high-section, with white/pink noise samples on the F#1 note.

You can create customised multi-synths from over 150 included patch presets, giving control over several different synth sources and sequences at the same time. There are over 25 multi patches in the download, but inspiration can also be found by building your own custom multi-synths.

Most of the sampled sounds were recorded to tape on vintage valve equipment; the word ‘azimuth’ refers to the angle of the tapeheads, which in many cases was adjusted to achieve an extra rasping sound (for a more extreme upper-mid frequency range and bite when filtering).

The 138mb pack comprises of 7 sets of samples from different analogue synths, including 2 varieties of ‘buzz’ sawtooth waves, 2 regular saws, a set from the Logandy string synth collection, a white/pink noise hybrid and a very powerful modified square wave bass section from a 1950s valve signal generator.

The bass section in particular is totally unique. The generator’s square wave has been modified with valve harmonics and tape saturation ,then blended with the original, resulting in a HUGE analogue sound that will carry your tracks with ease.

The sound library is available to purchase for £9.99 GBP. Tronsonic members pay £4.99 GBP.

Tronsonics releases Stoner Planet T sample library

Tronsonics has released Stoner Planet T, a sample library which contains a single set of samples from the Hohner Pianet T electric piano.

Recorded to worn tape on vintage equipment to emulate the distinctive Mellotron character, the piano has been overdriven through a 1960s valve pre-amp.

This pack contains over 40 imaginary 70s inspired preset instruments for Kontakt 4.2.3 or later, with the emphasis on modulation (from phasers, autowah and delay to ramped lfos triggered with the modulation wheel).

The Stoner Planet sample library is available to purchase for £9.99 GBP (£8.99 GBP for registered members and £4.99 GBP for students).

Contains one set of samples with 20 patches/ 5 multis for kontakt 4.2.2, and 25 patches for esx24 44khz/24 bit

These samples are unlooped – just a single preset recorded to worn tape. All of the sounds in the demo are made from some of the supplied patches – lots more synthesis possibilities ,and sounds great layered with other varieties of synth, such as the waveform72 or logandy.

Krog synthe2 is available to download at no cost for Tronsonic members (registration is free).

Tronsonic releases Organatron M100

Tronsonic Organatron M100

Tronsonic has released the Organatron M100, a sample library featuring sounds from the Hammond M100.

All 9 drawbars, bass pedals and percussion harmonics from the legendary prog organ – the Hammond m100. As used by Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and many other greats from the late 60s and early 70s.

Sampled to worn tape on vintage valve equipment, with complete control over each drawbar via midi – in other words, if you have a midi keyboard with 9 faders you have a Hammond! If that keyboard also has 8 assignable knobs then with the Kontakt instruments you can have control over leslie, reverb/delay, vibrato, and even ADSR envelopes should you feel creative. Designed to evoke the magic of late 60s/early 70s music, it also adds great character to contemporary music, and really comes to life when re-amped through an amp, or even better, a real leslie speaker.

Organatron M100 for Kontakt (compatible with ESX24, NNXT and Structure) is available to purchase for the introductory price of £9.99 GBP for registered users until December 31, 2011 (registration is free).

Tronsonic releases Dark Horse sample library

Tronsonic has released Dark Horse, a sample library with sounds from the Kawai 100-F synthesizer.

Tronsonic Dark Horse

This analogue monosynth from 1980 wasn’t everyones cup of tea. Great for sci-fi effects but perhaps not the sweetest lead sounds.

With this pack, both the sawtooth and square waves (as well as white noise) have been sampled to tape in their pure form (ie no filter/modulation etc). Now you have the ability to playback this ‘mellotronized’ monosynth with full polyphony – and here is where the magic begins! A truly unique analogue/digital hybrid synth has been born…the Dark Horse…

Dark Horse includes 350 preset patches (175 for Kontakt 4.2.2 and 175 for EXS24). The library is available to purchase for £15.99 GBP.
