PureMagnetik MicroTron Tape 2 For Live, Logic, Kontakt-AudioP2P
PureMagnetik MicroTron Tape 2 For Live, Logic, Kontakt-AudioP2P
This second edition to the Microtron series includes even more classic sounds! Microtron Tape 2 comes with the legendary Mark II Flute, Cello and Octave Recorders.

MK II Flute
Undoubtedly the sound that defines Mellotron, the MKII flute instantly conjures images of 1967 Abbey Road. Not only the most famous Mellotron sound, but perhaps the eeriest, the MKII flute's dubious pitching has been in question throughout the decades. The change in timbre (they say two flutes were used) and odd intonation only adds to the haunting and mesmerizing character of this timeless sound.

Octave Recorders
The Octave Recorder is a newer sound composed of soprano, alto and tenor recorders. Playing fast staccato chords on this one can make it sound a bit like a harmonium. It has a solid woody tone with breathy articulations and is definitely a contender to fill up the mix with some organic elements.

Cello
Renown for its melancholy timbre and described by some as "wheezing and groaning" the Cello sound was originally recorded in the 1960s. A double bassist was used for the lower registers. Apparently the original session cellist did not wish to detune his cello for fear of damaging the instrument. Nonetheless, the Mellotron Cello recording is undoubtedly a unique character in the tape library.

Microtron Tape 2 for Ableton Live Kontakt and Logic

This second installment of Puremagnetik's Microtron series brings three classic sounds from original Mellotron tapes direct to your DAW.

Microtron is undoubtedly the most comprehensive, natively programmed Mellotron sound set for Ableton Live. Microtron Tape 2 builds upon Live's rack features to create the blending effects between tape sounds as can be achieved with a physical Mellotron. Native live effects are completely integrated with multisample mode racks so that any Live 7 or 8 user can instantly load these sounds.

In addition, Microtron Tape 2 includes 50 Live Clips performed by professional studio keyboardists. Each clip comes preprogrammed with the multi sound Microtron rack for the most flexibility and editing possibilities.

Microtron Tape 2 for Kontakt comes with a selectable multi sound instrument with custom KSP editing features and Kontakt native effects. The Kontakt download also includes over 40 tempo-synced Apple Loops that can be dropped directly into Kontakt or played in the environment of your choice. (For native Apple SIAL loops be sure to download the Logic version)

Microtron Tape 2 for Logic includes three EXS instruments as channel strips that instantly install into the Logic library and a collection of over 40 SIAL Apple Loops.

Synth700 is a complete Korg 700 multisampled instrument for Ableton Live, Kontakt and Logic. It has been expertly sampled and programmed with all of the details and nuances of the original.

Synth700 is constructed with over 1200 individual samples from an original MiniKorg 700. The filters, waveforms, chorusing, brightness and more have all been captured using Puremagnetik?s permutative technique, allowing the user to focus the sound directly on individual parameter settings - much like one would do with the original analog model.

Don?t let the single instrument or 8 Macros fool you. Synth700 is actually quite complex. There are over 256 individual parameter configurations based on what you dial in on the Macro controls. You just have to start fiddling around to get some great pads, synth strings/brass, basses and more!

The Ableton Live version of Synth700 includes a full and ?Lite? version. The full version includes 10 individual racks with hundreds of samples each, enabling the user to dial in specific sounds with precise resolution.

PureMagnetik MalletPak One MULTiFORMAT PureMagnetik MalletPak One MULTiFORMAT
MalletPak One is a collection of 13 multisampled marimba instruments. It was recorded in a reflective room with a pair of Shure KSM32s in an ORTF configuration to capture the wide stereo field of the instrument. Four different mallet types were used with multiple hits for round-robin triggering and several velocity layers each.

A violin bow recorded for each marimba bar creates an eerily textured patch with infinite sustain. A hybrid patch combining mallet strikes with the bowed texture allows you to mix between articulations. The Logic, Kontakt and Ableton versions include a massive program that includes all 4 mallet types for easy switching during a performance or recording. Additionally, there are several synthetic patches using the marimba as sound source to create unique new musical tones.

MalletPak was produced in collaboration with artist Richard Lainhart.
