Re: Sampling the Samplers....

One quality you won’t get (and one of my favorite things to do with vintage samplers) is the pitch interpolation when playing samples above/below root note. It’s typically something we try to avoid, by taking a few samples per octave. But if you’re going for a “sound”, it could be cool to include a...

Re: Sampling the Samplers....

Just a few thoughts about your first point, effort and time: It took me about one month to rebuild a patch from a hardware Kawai K1. First made the mistake to sample every 3 notes from each patch (96 in total), resulting in a huge amount of gigabytes of samples/recordings. Not suitable for sound des...

Re: Rumble K1 Granular Synthesizer in the shop

GOOD FOR YOU!!! I’m happy for you that you’ve released your first product! I will most certainly try this one out, as I’m *ALWAYS* looking for new sounds to put into my hardware samplers! $79 seems like a fair price for something that seems deep enough to really never run out of fresh sounds. I’ll ...

It looks really expensive the way you have written it there using a comma instead of a point (full stop). and wow a year already, good luck for the future... Thanks for the correction. And reminder.

Re: Audio T-Shirts & DJ Photo Shoot

Great advice from Soeno. This way you will get an unsharp background, so the focus and attention is on the model. Also, let the model have some expression and movement, remove the glasses and less static poses. If the light sistuation is not optimal, use a white screen or a mirror to brighten the sh...

Re: Kong Remote Override Mapping

You can not assign the pads on Kong to a controller directly, but there is a workaround. You can connect CV Out's from a Redrum to trigger the pads on a Kong and then assign the triggers on the Redrum via Remote Override Edit Mode to a MIDI controller with pads.

Here is a trick: Save the patch made with Europa and then open it with a text editor. Select a portion of the text in XML file, starting with ' <Samples>' and ending with ' </Samples>' and replace that section with ' <Samples/>'.

Re: How do I know an RE isn't just some advanced combinator of stock / sdk devices?

Offcourse there are RE's where the sound can be made with Reason stock devices. Like drum modules, more cowbell, attention seekers and alike. But does it matter? No. Because you get a nice GUI, a smoother workflow and the advantage for the developer that what is made, is a copy protected product. Th...

Re: Rumble K2 Player and Rumble K2 Player Light released

The Sine Osc Tune has a range from 0 to 100 and the default value of 53 corresponds with 263.7 Hz and that is almost the note C3. The Sine Osc's tuning is not exactly pitched to middle C. It is out of tune with + 10 cents. You can use the Sine Osc to thicken the sound of the the Wave Loops, as they...

I might get one of these as they are more in my price range! I actually really like how the matrix is on the back, makes the user force to flip it around. Who knows maybe someone will get inspired by that simple feature. Now the only confusion is how additive synthesis is mentioned I understand how...

Thank you very much for your thorough and careful explanations. I appreciate it! :) 1. The K2 Player is besides a patch player a digital wavetable synthesizer just like the original Kawai K1.

Re: Rumble K2 Player and Rumble K2 Player Light released

Ok thanks. Is there any chance of getting a single device that emulates the K1? There isn't any reason that a single device could include a delay on each envelope is there? Or is this a limitation of the tools used to build this RE? Generally I prefer a single device for an instrument for automatio...

Re: Rumble K2 Player and Rumble K2 Player Light released

Am I right that waveforms can't be selected individually for each oscillator? Owning a K1 II back in the 90s this seems pretty odd to me. I also miss the envelope delay which was used for some signature sounds. Yes, the delay is missing, however you can set a delay curve as a source in the modulati...

Re: Rumble K2 Player and Rumble K2 Player Light released

A little disappointed with this as it is lacking a few features of the Kawai K1, noteably the Delay parameter on the envelopes. This affects some of the sound effect presets such as Arrangement which rely on this, so the K2 can't do a good job of emulating this patch. I understand it isn't deal bre...
