A Secret Weapon From the 70s. The Micromoog is a seriously underrated vintage synth, containing virtually the same filter as the original Minimoog. And honestly, its oscillators and filter have 1000x more character than any modern Moog, including the Voyager.

It's an aged, slightly unstable American VCO - powerful, rich, and capable of everything from thick and smooth to downright dirty and brash. The synth's been used by Air, Stereolab, Kraftwerk, and Herbie Hancock who's seen on this album cover choosing it over some serious contenders.

..::::: The Process :::::.....
We captured this synth at both its cleanest and dirtiest settings, recording long modulations, sweeping filters, and as many waveshapes as humanly possible. With the help of a tape machine, various tube devices, API & Neve preamps, hardware saturation, EQ and modern moog filters, we took it out of the 70s and into new sonic territory.

Once digitized, it was further transformed into a stunning soft synth, capable of gorgeous pads, classic moog leads and basses, cosmic FX, italo arpeggiators, deep house chords and more.

.....::::: Kontakt 5.5 :::::.....

We created a stunning, fully customized 3 page GUI with hi pass / low pass filter, 2 ADSRs, two custom delays (sync and non-sync), 1 custom reverb, two tunable oscillators each containing 30 unique hardware patches, noise, 3 separate LFOs, a 10 pattern, 16 step arpeggiator / sequencer with keyboard input, glide, global bypass and more.

Each oscillator contains 30 unique multi-sampled Micromoog patches. 36 Preset Multi Patches - Pads, Leads, Arps, Basses, Intervals and more. Bass Station style arpeggiator lets you step input notes via midi keyboard, with per-step velocity, 10 real-time switchable patterns, shuffle, and adjustable pattern length / rate.

3 separate LFOs for filter, pitch and volume. Effects feature EQs, filters and saturation for additional color and vintage vibe. Further fine-tune FX with rate, feedback, hi cut and stereo widening.

.....::::: Ableton Live 9.5 :::::.....

30 Fully Mapped Simpler Instruments. Gorgeous poly synths, dirty acid bass, smooth leads, cosmic FX, Italo style arpeggiators, punchy chords, sweeping pads and more. Deep FX racks with delays, reverbs, pitch shifters, choruses, EQs, saturators and more. One master simpler with 30 chains and minimal FX for those who like it raw and analog. Perfect for Push or any midi controller.

Introducing Mutate, our next generation virtual hybrid synthesizer for Kontakt 5!

Twist, mangle and transform unique multi-sampled waveforms to create powerful abstract Dubstep bass, twisted Techno sequences, morphing growls, Mainroom EDM bass / leads, cone-melting subs, lush chords, warm analogue bass and everything in-between...

Combine complex evolving tones and ‘mutate’ them into oblivion with powerful parameter lock sequencers and extensive on-board processing / FX...

Mutate is powered by a 3.7GB core library of unique raw waveforms and pre-designed preset multi-samples, synthesized from the ground up, and recorded directly from a huge hybrid analogue / digital Eurorack modular synth system. In essence this means that as a producer, sound designer or programmer you have access to a truly diverse tapestry of creative sounds and building blocks, before you have even touched Mutate’s creative on-board parameters!

We feel that the raw, vibrant tones of Mutate are an essential addition to any electronic music producer's toolkit...

Please note: This instrument does NOT work with the Free Kontakt Player. A full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.2.1 (or above) is required to run Mutate.

Click here to download the Mutate manual

Mutate ships with two separate instruments; the 'Raw Waveforms' instrument and the 'Designed Presets' Instrument.

Raw Waveforms Instrument
The 'Raw Waveforms' instrument is powered by 2730 multi-samples spread across 46 waveform patches. Up to four oscillators (plus noise oscillator) can be mixed, panned and tuned to create unique layered, synthesized sounds.

Designed Presets Instrument
The 'Designed Preset' Instrument is powered by 6305 perfectly looped multi-samples, spread across 142 expressive, evolving patches which are ready to use straight out of the box; with filter settings, modulation, and envelope settings recorded straight from the modular Eurorack system.

Both instruments feature Sequencer and FX edit pages;

Sequencer Page
At the heart of Mutate you will find a 32-step, 16 track, variable rate ‘parameter lock’ sequencer, allowing you to automate; note pitch, volume, note length, attack, filter cut-off, filter resonance, filter LFO depth, Filter LFO rate, stereo spread, distortion levels, reverb send and delay send individually, per step! When used with the instruments ‘shuffle’ function, anything from subtle sample and hold type effects to completely insane, morphing sequences can be created. This is where things get really interesting!

FX Page
The FX page has selectable modulation effects (switchable between Flanger, Phaser and Chorus) alongside a custom Reverb and Delay unit

Mutate was driven by the desire to create a truly unique ‘Bass Machine’ synth capable of twisting waveforms 'inside-out' using extensive modulation and sequencer parameter lock techniques.

From the start it was our mission to push Kontakt’s scripting capabilities to the limit, to deliver a synth with an experimental edge, capable of devastating, evolving sounds for the bass heads.
CL-Projects Hypernova KONTAKT CL-Projects Hypernova KONTAKT
is the new 'Top of the line' Kontakt synthesizer from CL-Projects. Based on a well known polyphonic synthesizer from the late 90's that was capable of emulating Minimoog, Jupiter 8, Juno 106 and ARP 2600 sounds. The Hypernova Kontakt synth is no different. It can also emulate classic synthesizer sounds, making use of sampling technology instead of the virtual analog and substractive technology the original synth used. Hypernova is a 3 oscillator synthesizer which uses 50 different sound sets per oscillator. The sounds were sampled without the filter, LFO and effects settings. All the sounds were recreated with the Kontakt's filters, LFO's and effects. Hypernova is therefore an ideal tool for sound designers and musicians who want to make their own sounds.

contains the parameters to completely alter and edit the sound. The Hypernova synthesizer has a 3 oscillator architecture. All the parameters on the controls page are available for the 3 oscillators seperately. Four different waveforms can be selected for each oscillator: square, saw, noise and special. The special waveform is a choice between 50 different waveforms, selectable via a menu. Each oscillator has level, pan, tuning and modulation parameters. The global section contains the parameters that affects all three oscillators at once. On the the top left are the poly, solo, legato and offset settings with the possibility to change the note order in which the notes are played when set to solo, legato or offset: last, next, low and high. On the top right you can find the Portamento and Unisono parameters. The filter section contains 5 different filters of which 4 are ladder filters known for their Moog like character and the fifth filter is the well known Pro53 filter. Each filter has its own frequency and resonance setting, also accompanied with their modulation settings for velocity, modwheel, pressure and key track. The envelopes section contains three different envelopes for amp, filter and pitch each with their own presets. Last but not least there is a very extensive LFO section. Each oscillator has an LFO for pitch, filter, level and pan with a choice between four different waveforms: square, saw, tri (triangle) and s/h (sample and hold). 

contains 7 different effects. A convolution reverb with a choice between 7 different spaces: chamber, room, hall, church, plate, spring and gate. Other effects are delay, chorus, flanger, phaser, distortion and a 3-band equalizer, each with their own effect presets.

exists out of a 64 step arpeggiator with a random arp generator. Beneath the arpeggiator there's a small mod section where you can change the bend range, the pitch LFO and level LFO sensitivity for the modwheel and pressure for the three oscillators.


This includes Pulsar Project from SubsonicArtz
Pulsar Project consists of more than 100 new free patches (instruments and multis).
The full version of HYPERNOVA is required to run this add-on.
Samples From Mars Analog Tape Synths ABLETON LOGIC EXS KONTAKT Samples From Mars Analog Tape Synths ABLETON LOGIC EXS KONTAKT
Not many people multi-sample synths to tape - it's time consuming and can leave a pretty big dent in your wallet. In fact, each synth patch we recorded took up about 1,250 ft of tape! (around 10 - 15 minutes). But the results sound absolutely incredible! Who cares about time and money when you have sweet, sweet analog synths recorded to a classic reel to reel machine? These patches are truly special. Warm, fat, gritty and pretty. Enjoy :)

What You Get:
10 soft synth instruments created by multi-sampling analog synthesizers to a 1/4" mastering reel to reel
Sounds range from saturated sub bass to epic 80s poly synths, sync leads and dirty FX
Featuring: Roland MKS-7, Oberheim SEM, Moog Micromoog, and Novation Bass Station

This is a truly unique release - we took a tiny little drum machine (with a big sound), sequenced it with FX and looped the results through a Roland Scooper, where the sounds were live-warped, bit crushed, reversed, pitched, re-quantized and filtered. All of this was captured on 1/4" tape and transformed into a killer library of modern & weird (but highly useable) sounds and instruments. 

The result: clubby kicks, modern claps, punchy snaps, cosmic toms, synthy hi hats, Villalobos-style perc and tons of wonky FX hit. Clean one shots, dirty lo-fi drum kits, and fully tweakable chromatic keyboard instruments for Ableton, Kontakt, Logic, WAV & more.
