Wavesfactory Retro Keys I KONTAKT
Retro Keys I is a collection of 3 libraries based on famous keyboards from the 70s: The Orchestrator, The Compac and Organ X55.

Perfectly replicated with all the original features and more.
- The Compac is an electric piano made by Crumar in 1972 that features 3 piano sounds (piano, honky tonk and clavichord). Noise, envelope and cabinets also available. 

- The Orchestrator was also made by Crumar in 1975, is an electric piano and a "string machine" with a brass simulator. Bass, brass, piano, clavichord, violin, cello; with vibrato, cabinets, noise, envelope and presets. 

- The Organ X55 is a clonewheel made by Elka also in the 70s. Features 2 keyboards with 1 drawbar each, 3 piano sounds with optional sustain, percussion, 2 vibrato types, brilliance, cabinets, rotator, tube drive and a set of presets (including random values). 

All keyboards have an option called "vintage". When it's active some effects are applied to give a very nice vintage vibe to the sound (tape distortion, compression, wow, flutter and speed variations). We love it and we're sure you'll love it too.

Sound DUST Flutter EP Wavetable Add-on UPDATE KONTAKT Sound DUST Flutter EP Wavetable Add-on UPDATE KONTAKT
Flutter EP is an electric piano like you've never heard before.

She is packed to the brim with specially devised samples made from a variety of slutty analogue hardware synths and keyboards. All sample sets morph and loop through various transitions for a mind boggling selection of unique but Wurly-ish, Rhodes-y, organ-esque, DX like electric piano type sounds....but of course there is a twist which makes her very different.

Sound Dust has released a free update add on which extends the original Flutter EP capabilities into wavetable type synthesis.

Features:

New 500MB sample set (total now 1.7GB).
1 Kontakt instrument with 58 snapshots.
New macro page with playhead position, loop length and flutter type controls.
5 new Modwheel controlled 'Flutter' algorithms.

Flutter EP is an electric piano like you've never heard before.

She is packed to the brim with specially devised samples made from a variety of slutty analogue hardware synths and keyboards. All sample sets morph and loop through various transitions for a mind boggling selection of unique but Wurly-ish, Rhodes-y, organ-esque, DX like electric piano type sounds....but of course there is a twist which makes her very different.

Think Radiohead, Jon Hopkins, Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds or maybe Steve Reich in a fist fight with Trent Reznor.
The main interface is divided into 12 parts which (if you look hard enough) show the octave of a keyboard starting at C on the left. Each column gives individual parameter control for each corresponding note of the six octave range, whatever you do to the C column affects all of the Cs and nothing else etc.

You get the usual volume envelope, pan, low and high pass filter, filter lfo speed and shape, and 3 effects sends but in Flutter they can be different for every note of the octave. There is the same per note control of sample start, loop start and loop time, all controllable in realtime!
Flutter has a special trigger mode for each individual note over 6 octaves which can set BPM synced note repeats from 64ths to bars (inc triplets). Imagine holding a chord with each note repeating in different BPM synced cycle lengths...
The modwheel-powered Flutter control unleashes the 'fluttering' effect that gives this beauty her name. Wiggle the wheel for instant live jitter/glitch/fluttering effects.
Flutter EP may sound complicated but she is really quite simple and a quick, intuitive and 'vibey' way of writing complex sounding music with just a few fingers.
