SonicCouture Box of Tricks KONTAKT
Every aspect of Box Of Tricks has been shaped by Imogen Heap.

An exclusive selection of her instruments, sampled in detail and with custom scripts, effects, and tools; all designed the way she wanted to use them.
Box Of Tricks has already been beta-tested in Imogens live performances and studio projects: a process that helped generate ideas and refine the instruments.
From an initial idea about a free Heap instrument, to the final result, 3 years later; Box Of Tricks is a truly extraordinary collaboration.

EUCLIDEAN BEATS
Included with Cocktail Kit and Vocal + Body Percussion Kit
An exciting way to generate complex beats, based on Euclidean mathematics.
No matter how many steps or hits in each individual pattern, they will always be evenly spaced across the bar.
Assign some controllers and jam: you can't put a beat wrong.

Imogen's most famous instrument, her 5-octave Array Mbira. Imogen wanted to be able to play this as you would in real life, with 2 sets of notes mirrored for right and left hand. We also developed for her a strum device that strums as many notes as you choose, over any chosen key velocity.

HEAP SPACES + EFFECTS
Box of Tricks features convolution reverbs sampled from Imogens house.
From the dry Hideaway Studio, to the spooky Runaround Tunnel.

Wavelore Clavichord v1.0 KONTAKT-VON.G Wavelore Clavichord v1.0 KONTAKT-VON.G
Soft / VST Instruments 31-10-2015
The Wavelore Clavichord ($179.99) (Kontakt 4 and higher) is the world's first deeply sampled and programmed virtual clavichord. This rare and beautiful keyboard instrument was a favorite of renaissance and barouque composers, as well as a popular practice instrument for organists (it's extremely quiet!), though it fell into relative obscurity starting around the early nineteenth century. In the twentieth century, it's best known, perhaps, in the form of its electronic offspring, the Hohner Clavinet, which we all know to be one the funkyiest sounding instruments on record. See Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" for a well known example.

The clavichord is considered by some to be the most intimate of keyboard instruments, mostly due to the fact that the player's fingers are more directly in contact with the strings; The most unique aspect of its construction is that it allows the player to rock his or her finger on a key, producing a vibrato effect, or "bebung"...poly aftertouch well before its time!

The Wavelore Clavichord faithfully reproduces all the defining and unique capabilites of its acoustic namesake, while also adding certain capabilities. See below for full feature list.

Instrument Features:

6 velocity layers, with 8-way polyphonic (true) round robin programming for all notes and release samples, allowing convincing performance of any passage...trills are especially fun :)

Intimate malleable sound, close mic'ed samples and stereo impulse reponses for enhanced cabinet resonance.

Characteristic release samples, accurately reflecting tangent buzz - adjustable in volume with carefully programmed decay-matching (so release samples don't "pop").

Configurable Keynoise samples for all notes, including a wide array of control options for performance detection. Of course, you can also just shut 'em off!

A dozen temperaments suitable for modern and period music: Equal, Pythagorean, and a variety of meantone and circulating temperaments.

Optional octave/unison string coupling with fine de-tuning control over each string of each key. This feature also allows the use and adjustment of "tangent slope", or the tendency of either member of a string pair to sound later than the other, based on the angle or "slope" of the tangent's edge. Together these controls can greatly enrich the instrument's sound, or even be used to simulate an instrument in varying stages of disrepair!

Ability to apply vibrato to only the last note played using an assignable MIDI controller, and including optional randomization of vibrato width and speed for a more "human" effect than typical LFO-based vibratos. Also includes an optional multiscript that allows the use of polyphonic aftertouch for true "bebung" technique.

"Electric" or "Acoustic" mode: Apply a variety of cabinet or amp resonances, as well as optional, keyswitchable wah, distortion, compression, and reverb.

MIDI Learn mode for all assignable controls.

A feature-rich, dynamic performance view with nine pages of clearly organized and intuitive controls for tweaking the instrument to your taste and style.
Carefully chosen factory settings to allow unsurpassed out-of-the-box playability.

A detailed 22-page user guide .pdf including a quick start guide and detailed info on operation.
Soniccouture Samulnori Percussion EXS24 KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX Soniccouture Samulnori Percussion EXS24 KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX
Soft / VST Instruments 18-10-2015
 
 
Samulnori is a type of Korean percussion music that has been gaining popularity over the last few decades, both in Korea and abroad. The term "samulnori” ( ) can be broken into two parts - "samul” meaning "four things”, and "nori” meaning "to play”.

The Samulnori ensemble generally consists of four main instruments : Puk, Janngu, Jing and K'Kwaenggwari. In a minimal ensemble there will be just one of each, but you will also sometimes see larger groups with four or more of each instrument. However, even in these larger groups, the role of each instrument is the same. Each one represents an element of nature, the Jing being the wind, the Janggu the rain, the Puk the clouds, and the K’kwaenggwari the lightning.

Samulnori has it’s roots in farmer’s music (nong-ak), and includes not only music but dancing to celebrate harvest times. The music also stems from the shamanistic tradition of utdari pungmul, which is performed on these same instruments together with singing and wind instruments. In it’s modern incarnation, samulnori relies solely on the four instruments below, either in quartet or larger ensemble.

PUK
Also known as 'Buk', this is a low a low pitched barrel drum, played with a single wooden mallet. It is about 30 cm in diameter, and made from a piece of hollowed out wood with a leather skin tied across each side.It provides the bass pulse of the grou

JING
A gong made of iron. Sometimes hung on a frame, or else held by it’s handle, it’s generally played with a large padded beater. It can also be played with the hands.

JANNGU
An hourglass shaped drum, each side covered with a different kind of leather. One side produces a higher pitched sound and is struck with a thin bamboo reed, the other side is played with a mallet and produces a deeper sound.

K'KWAENGGWARI
A very small hand-held gong held in the left hand and played with a small hard beater. It’s about 25 cm across made primarily of brass. The left hand is also used to damp the gong. This instrument leads the group, signaling transitions in the music.

HUMANISE
The Samulnori Kontakt instruments feature KSP Humanise controls which can be used to add random variations to the timing, velocity, tuning and volume of each hit.

This makes it possible to load up multiple instances of the same instrument playing the same MIDI pattern and introduce the natural differences and organic feel of a human drummer to each one. This makes it very quick to create stunningly lifelike ensemble percussion pieces.
