First of all I want to thank you all who took part in my little survey the other month, to help me understand where we all stand on the "synth map" a little better. I feel like we're all a big gang of likeminded! I was especially happy to read all your personal greetings at the end. I read them all, and took them to heart. Thank you so much for your support! It means a lot to me.
Onto today's news. I have produced and sampled a new pack of the Moog Matriarch. It's a colourful, modular synth with a beautiful stereo filter, with Moog's renowned tone. I figured I'd craft this pack especially towards keyboard players, with beautiful tones, rich bass, bity leads, and a few outerworldly creative pads. There are some whacky things in there as well, but mostly I just wanted really GOOD, balanced synth sounds with that warm fuzzy tone that is often missing in todays synthetic world.
The pack is loaded with 24 rich stereo WAV libraries, with many variations in each folder, totalling at about 600MB of easy to understand numbered stereo wav files. Most variations 4 octaves one sample per key, 49 samples per sound. Samplers that benefit from stereo, like the Octatrack and Deluge, will thrive! But of course the files are converted automatically to mono on devices like the Digitakt and Model samples.
I'm especially proud of the over 40 patches for the OP-1 and OP-Z, where I think that warm tone is especially welcomed.
My Nord Sample library of 40+ files is also very convenient to use on any of the Nord keyboards that support samples. I have even made two versions of the Nord files, one full version and one with reduced number of samples to a third of the size, marked (s), for fitting it into tighter memory constraints. The Nord source files are also there so it'll be easy to export into older formats if you'd need that.
To top it all off there's an Ableton Live project with 24 ready to play patches.
Take a listen for yourself, and see what you think!
Once again, thank you so much for your support over the years!
