Dark Dog Studios is pleased to announce that the Mosaic refill for Grain Sample Manipulator is now back in the shop! This was initially released some months ago, however there were problems with the way the samples were handled, and needed to wait until a new refill packer 10.2 was developed and released.
Please note that this ReFill requires Reason 10!
At the heart of Mosaic, are the 378mb of carefully selected samples. These are a mix of real instruments, found objects, and field recordings from Dark Dog Studios, and Youtube recordings, or soundbites from old Creative Commons licensed B-grade movies. When fed into the Grain Sample Manipulator they act as the tesserae, or raw material, with which, Dark Dog Studios has lovingly crafted a total of 236 presets for this refill, all with that highly original, musical and character filled, and dare we say it, slightly barking mad sounds you can expect from Dark Dog Studios! Ideally suited as a starting point for musicians wishing to make more experimental music, but also surprisingly versatile and useful for more conventional music too. As usual with Grain you are free to drop your own samples into the presets to change the sound and texture, sometimes subtly, sometimes radically, to achieve your own personal sound.
Mosaic consists of a generous selection of:
13 Metal and Percussion
36 Pads and Textures
14 Plucks and Keys
19 Poly Synth
22 Rhythmic and Glitch
33 Stutters and Vocal Effects
Plus a bonus folder of 10 Europa presets!
Great care and attention has been taken to make these sounds very rich and expressive, with parameters modulated and controller with mod wheel, pitchbend and aftertouch, so you will get the best out of them by playing with them! The combinators are particularly versatile with all knobs and buttons assigned for a nearly endless variety and timbre of sound.
