Boutique, beautifully sampled instruments crafted from scratch with love and deeply infused with vintage analog goodness. This is one group that contains 4 Instruments and 12 One Shots. http://www.londonsoundlab.com http://www.ariraskin.com Contents: This kit is very vintage and very analog and we love the way it sounds. Pads 1, 3 and 4 contain mapped, modulatable, multisampled vintage analog synths born in the classic 90's SE-1 monophonic synthesizer. The source samples were recorded through a Jenson-based DI into an early 1970’s Class A Neve MIC preamp. Pad 1 - Quick NvPonch bass, rooted in A to provide a nice minor foundation to the EP chords. Its a quick classic analog short sound with a phat timbre. Pad 3 - MW ThickSlimeLead was originally designed by renown NYC pop/hip hop engineer Ari “R.E. Thuggz” Raskin to be the perfect quintessential saw synth lead. It is big and it is thick and juicy. The modwheel is mapped to add an extreme lfo effect that adds a deep level of expression to melodies made with this “in your face” synth lead. Pad 4 - MW Girth4BigChrd is a polyphonic sound meant to sound big and full of character. The modwheel plays with the snap of the envelope. Pad 2 contains a crispy hat made from the analog noise of the 1970s Korg Delta polyphonic analog synth. It was recorded with an early 1970‘s API 312 mic pre. The envelopes are set delicately in order to give you a dynamic and versatile playing experience. The second row, Pads 5, 6, 7 and 8 contain various 8 bit crunchy blip sounds designed in the Korg Delta also recorded through the 1970's API 312 mic pre. Finally, the top two rows, Pads 9 through 16 contain 8 carefully constructed suitcase piano chords chosen to be versatile, inspiring and to sound great with each other. Every suitcase piano has it's own sound, and this particular piano has been played by, loved and called a favorite by some of the most influential keyboard players in the industry today. The chords were carefully chosen to all match the root of Pad 1, but will also work beautifully with other keys. These were recorded with the API.
