Easy Sounds Magical Pads Yamaha Motif XS/XF
Easy Sounds Magical Pads Yamaha Motif XS/XF
Magical Pads provides mainly warm, analog and atmospheric synthpads, but also sweeps, swells, synthbrass, and Atmo/FX-sounds. Synth pads crop up in lots of synth and sample libraries but frequently they come programmed with very specific movement in them which makes them difficult to use in a professional ("less is more”) setting. Not only are these pads are beautifully constructed, with multiple gentle, wide, fat, and spacious types, the emphasis is musicality rather as opposed to the spectacular.

Magical Pads includes:
128 new User-Voices (MOTIF XS / XF = 160 Voices)
New Synth Waveforms ( MOTIF ES = 64 MB, MOTIF XS = 142 MB, MOTIF XF = 128 MB).

The overall character of these pads is influenced by classic vintage synths such as the Jupiter-8, Oberheim Xpander or Polysix, plus new ‘virtual analog' types such as the Nordlead or Virus.

Magical Pads usability also extends to real time control; in most cases a sound can be morphed from "bright" to "dark" using the mod wheel.

Many voices of the MOTIX XS/XF-version explore the expanded sonic possibilities of Xpanded Articlulation. These Voices (tagged AF1&2) give you maximum sound flexibility, incorporating Assignable Functions (AF1 + AF2) and alternate element combinations. The cross-fade of the sounds is smooth because of element's release parameter settings.
MOTIF XF: The User Waveforms and Samples of this library can be loaded to pre-installed SDRAM or to the optional Flash Memory (Flash Memory Expansion Modules FL1 + FL2).

MOTIF XS: For loading the soundset installation of optional DIMMs (2 x 128 MB or more) is needed.

Easy Sounds Drum Performer Yamaha MOTIF XS X0A Easy Sounds Drum Performer Yamaha MOTIF XS X0A
„Drum Performer" offers new „Real Drums" – produced in several sampling sessions.
The drumsounds are sounding dry, fat and with much pressure.
Because most samples were recorded without effects they can be processed flexible with effects and EQs. Because of special recording procedures there is a very big variety of drumsounds. Each drum instrument is availabe in several different versions. Although you receive several complete drumkits the main focus are big collections of kicks, snaredrums und cymbals, which are combined to additional Instrument Kits.

„Drum Performer" is useable for MOTIF XS , MOTIF XF and MOTIF ES.

The product includes:

• 44 User Drum Voices (Drumkits)
• 40 Arpeggio-Performances for MOTIF XS / XF (a part of them are modified factory performances)
• 16 Arpeggio-Performances for MOTIF ES (a part of them are modified factory performances)
• 128 User Arpeggios (a part of them are Remix-versions of Preset arpeggios)
• 450 User Waveforms
• 220 MB Samples

For sampling this drum-equipment was used:

Schlagzeug-Set Pearl MMX 22”, 13”, 16”
Schlagzeug-Set GMS 22”, 10”, 12”, 14”, 16”
HiHat A Zildjian 15" (vintage 60er)
HiHat K Zildjian 14"
Ride K Zildjian Custom 20"
Ride A Zildjian 20" Heavy-Ride

Snare Tama Starclassic 14"
Snare Mapex 13"

Although for producing drumsounds only real drums were used, because of experimental edits the soundset include also impressive electronic type drums, which are useful for some kinds of trendy music like Chill Out, Ambient, RnB or other Electronics.

For keeping full compatibility with the Preset Drum Arpeggios of MOTIF XS / XF as well as the GM/XG-Standard all new drumkits are using same structure as MOTIF XS / XF Preset drumkits.
Additional to the Preset Drum Arpeggios you can use 128 new User Arpeggios.
Many of the new Drum Arpeggios were recorded live with the Yamaha DTXtreme.
A part of the User Arpeggios are Remix-Versions of MOTIF XS / XF Preset Arpeggios.

A special highlight of this soundsets are the performances, which are really inspiring and very useful for checking the new drumkits in a musical context.
Even live musicians will love the performances with the new drumkits because they can be used for training sessions or preparing band arrangements as well as for professional music productions.
 
MOTIF XF user can load the All-Files only to the optional Flash Memory, because the files are including more than 128 user Waveforms. Single Drum-Voices can be loaded also to the SDRAM.


PlugInGuru MegaMagic PADS Omnisphere 2.1 PlugInGuru MegaMagic PADS Omnisphere 2.1
MegaMagic PADS is all about making beautiful, powerful, happy, sad, omnious, angry emotions... into sounds that you will get goosepimples when playing. well, at least I did. I set up some unique rules for this library to make sure it is 100% origional and unique

• Sounds are created 100% "in the box". There are a bazillion different libraries where people sample all their old analog/digital synthesizers. That's nice. It's been done. So for this library I used: ElectraX, Codex, Nave, Sculpture, Loom, Blue, Wavestation, ES2, Spire, Nemesis, the original Alchemy as my sound pallete.

• I then would mix 1,2 or sometimes 3 sounds together to make the final sound which would then be fed into similar Magical REVERB effects like you hear in MegaMagic Dreams. That's the MegaMagic part of these libraries. You don't need ANYTHING else to have the lush sounds, the ambience is recorded into the sound. This creates sounds like you have truly never played before....

• The samples are up to 20+ seconds long and there are 6 samples to make a single final sound. This is important. For over 25 years I've worked as one of the principal sound designers for Korg. A lot of the Synth PCM in their workstations was created by me. A lot of the Synth pad Patches were created by me. When working with these workstations, I was generally limited to less than 2 seconds for each sample due to memory limitations (these are less critcal now that memory is abundant). So for this library I want the sounds to truly be ALIVE. They go on forever and then they were carefully cross-fade looped so you can't even tell where the loop is at. This way, the sounds are interacting with each other in magical ways that keep the sound alive - you never hear a loop appear no matter how long you hold down a note. The crossfade technique I use records this into the final samples so that these sounds play the same no matter where you load them (as long as where you load them can read loop points correctly).

• I wanted to push the envelope. So I made this library for 5 (yes, FIVE) different Plug-in types! You can be a user of Reason, Logic Pro or use Omnisphere 2.1, Kontakt 5 and even Serum and have access to this library
