Tronsonic releases Organatron V2 for Kontakt

Tronsonic has released Organatron V2, a vintage rock organ sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Tronsonic Organatron V2
Organatron V2 features all 9 drawbars, bass pedals and percussion harmonics from the legendary Hammond m100 prog organ.

Sampled to tape from the Hammond m100 (as used by Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Procul Harum and many more), the Organatron V2 is an updated version of the original Organatron m100.

Its interface is borrowed from the microtape series, but with a couple of extras – fully adjustable vibrato (via tone, amp and pitch) and a Rotating Leslie speaker effect (slow or fast adjusted via the mod wheel/MIDI CC1).

Both of these can be individually set for each drawbar, giving a new level of customization to the organ (as well as effects – coming soon in the New Year as another free upgrade).

As with the microtapes, this interface features the tape ‘degrader’ controls (shared with the vibrato here). These control how ‘damaged’ you’d like the tape effect to sound for each drawbar (via tone, amp, pitch and speed). With these controls, the user can make their instrument sound like a vintage film soundtrack, or a rare lost prog gem – adjusting the ‘age’ of the sound to taste. Each drawbar (there are 9 plus bass pedals and percussion harmonics) also has a tone control (the left tape wheel), which is a way to add the vintage atmosphere by cutting the treble.

All drawbars can be loaded into a multi-patch, giving the user the whole organ to play. All controls (including volume) can be learned via MIDI CC (right click the mouse and turn the control to learn). A custom template for the bcr2000 will be available soon.

The sample library costs £14.99 GBP. It is currently available as part of the 50% off Christmas Sale for £7.49 GBP. Existing Organatron m100 owners can get it free of charge (the upgrade version references the original samples).

Microtape 11 – Cranberry Source for Kontakt.

2 patches from one of my favourite synths combined in one nki in the new microtape format.

Recorded at 3.75 ips on clean quarter inch tape through the Bottlizer magic valve box.

20 presets in all, with some quite interesting midi-delayed arpeggios.

Until January 1st, 2013, the library is a free download for registered Tronsonic users (registration is free). The library requires the full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or later.

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 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.

  • 4 varieties of spring reverb with 9 variations each.
  • 185 instruments, 15 multis.
  • Unique ‘saturation’ button with custom tape/tube impulse response.

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).
