new upload: Beauty Dronescape

Channel A processes a long sample (2:10) of a huge drone I made using Alchemy and various other Plugs. Osc A is set to Granular mode, control the Sample speed with the assigned Macro. A Supercomb Filter can be added using the assigned Macro, another Macro controls the Filter Feedback amount and yet another Macro controls the Balance of the Ringmodulator in Channel A. Filter and Ringmodulator are modulated by various LFOs, check the LFO page if you want to understand what's going on. The overall Volume of the Drone can also be controlled with a Macro. Osc B in Granular mode carries the sample of some excited penguins just before feeding time which I recorded in a Zoo. The sample speed is controllable with a Macro, the pitch is controlled by a looped envelope and also via Velocity. The LFO-morphed Waveshaper in the Master section adds some Saturation/Distortion and a Lowpass Filter can be controlled with the assigned Macro. The huge Aetherizer space in the FX section is tuned up an octave, you can pitch it down an octave with the assigned Macro, also some other Macros control various FX parameters. The Modwheel adds a temposynced sawshaped Amplitude Modulation.

new upload: Dreamy Piano

Absynth 5 only - filesize 2,5 MB - zip folder contains the ksd and one sample (wav/48khz/24 Bit)
The sample of a Piano Sequence I recorded at 120 Bpm in Eb minor is used in Oscillators A+B set to Granular mode. Temposynced envelopes in retrigger mode determine the sample playback speed so it will follow the Host tempo. Channel A processes the piano using a Cloudfilter, it's Balance controlled by a Macro. To add detune use the Modwheel. Channel B furtherly processes the sample using a LFO-morphed Frequency Shifter, Frequency is controlled by a temposynced step envelope. Channel C adds a Drone sound which is mapped from C2 downwards. A Ringmodulator in the Master section can be added using the assigned Macro for Ringmod Balance. The Volumes of Channel B+C are assigned to Macros. Happy Depression everybody!
