Particle Sound has announced the release of 4RP I, the second release in the Carbon series of Kontakt 5 formatted classic synthesizer instruments.
4RP I features over 800mb of samples from 3 different vintage Arp synthesizers, including both the Mk I and MK III Odysseys as well as a beautiful Arp 2600.
The focus this time is on bass sounds and the 32 tagged .NKI based presets cover a lot of sonic ground, including the squelch of the MK I, the raw electricity of the MK III and the gorgeous warmth of the 2600, all lovingly captured in 24-bit 48kHz audio. 4RP I includes fully sampled patches from all 3 instruments as well as raw waveforms and noise from the 2600 for the greatest possible flexibility.
The Carbon interface is based on a dual layer design with linkable sections. Each layer offers a selection of 6 sampled waves and/or multi-samples with sample start point modulation, an additional noise source and a multimode filter. A complement of 2 full envelopes, 1 attack/release envelope and 2 LFOs are available and can be assigned to a variety of internal parameters. Each layer also includes it’s own controller section where 2 assignable parameters can be controlled in varying amounts by a single knob for easy mod-wheel or aftertouch assignments. A global FX section rounds out the interface with access to up to 6 simultaneous effects for the final polish.
