Heavyocity C-Tools (Reaktor 5)
C-Tools was designed as an homage to a future that never was. Featuring a trinity of retro synths inspired by the 70s and 80s, C-Tools is three distinct instruments: Capsule (drums), Coil (bass) & Clique (pads & keys). From nostalgic strings to archetypal pulsing rhythms, C-Tools is the framework for building the vintage synth sound of yesterday, today. Available as a download only. *C-Tools runs in Reaktor.
Capsule
Capsule

Capsule is the C-Tools Drum Machine, featuring eight drum channels and a built-in sequencer. Complete with thumping kicks and kitschy hand claps, Capsule takes a mostly analogue approach to its synthesis engines. Add in an additional effects chain crafted specifically for drums (including a gated reverb), and you can consider the hole in your instrument collection for tweakable vintage synth drums officially filled. Coil
Coil

Coil is a hybrid monosynth designed especially for bass sounds. It uses digital FM and analogue subtractive synthesis techniques to produce a rich sound palette. From biting and percussive, to deep and throbbing - and all spaces in between - Coil lays down the low-end foundation you need for building those synthetic rhythm beds. Clique
Clique

Clique is a combination of string machine and combo organ - two instruments that used similar frequency division techniques to produce their polyphonic sounds. Whether it be bright and springy or spacey and textural, Clique gives you all the soft synth requirements for writing melodies and harmonies so catchy they will ruin your life. Added is a split keyboard routing mechanism, which allows you to assign different parts of the synthesizer to the upper, lower, or both halves of the keyboard.

Extinct Art of India – Tabla Tarang

Please Note : Tabla Tarang Library/Instruments works with Native Instruments Kontakt 5.4.2 or Higher (Full Version).Free Players works for 30 minutes.

Introduction

You already heard the "Magical Sound of Tabla” in our previous release which was performed by master tabla artist ” Jagannath Singh”. we have already discussed the effect of black ink spot on tabla which makes this instrument capable of producing one note higher than the main pitched note (Psyco-acoustic issue).

Magical Sound Of 13 unique hand made "Tablas”


There are many Tuned Percussion Instruments available in the market.We can say market is quite saturated but here is the extinct art of India "Tabla Tarang”. Most of the people in India have heard about this instrument but have not seen any performance happening live. Sadly , Authentic playing is no more seen.

Solo Tabla Tarang

"Tarang” means waves. Many hand made tabla drums are tuned separately by hitting hammer on the rim of tabla according to "Raga” and all tabla drums are placed in semicircular positions covering lower bass tabla from left to higher pitched tabla towards right. Each tabla has its own character and the melodies are produced by hitting hands on the centre of tabla. Black Ink spot produce a unique sound and when artist perform any emotional raga using these different-different tabla it sounds exotic.
Its bit sad to say that this art is almost not seen in India nowadays.Pandit Kamalesh Maitra has some of his performances on youtube which can be searched by his name.

Crypto Cipher Solo Tabla Tarang

Recreating this art was adventurous and fun. We teamed up with tabla artist and tabla makers and discussed the plan and finally we have sampled 13 tabla drums not with just the magical black ink spot sound but also the two other tuned sounds "Ta” and "Tin” ,which are produced by hitting at the rim/chanti and middle portion/maidan of tabla drum.
So we have three main tuned sounds "Ta” "Tin” and "Tun” mapped across the keyboard.
Mixing all three sound make the instrument so special as never heard before.
We recreated this instrument for Modern music composers and recorded almost 15,000 samples with three mic types (Ribbon , Dynamic , Condensor). Also with the powerful scripted technology we pushed the capability of the instrument to next level. We have legato and drum articulation section which will help composers to play the instrument in more advance ways.

Tabla Tarang Authentic Playing Technique

We recommend you to see artwork made by Kirti Taneja for "Tabla Tarang” to understand the instrument( Artist sits in the middle and place tabla in semicircular position creating a keyboard layout). All tabla are tuned manually by hitting hammer on tabla according to Raga which artist is going to perform.
Artist can hit maximum two drums at a time producing one stroke from each hand at once (Human capability).Example : Artist cannot play "Ta and Tin” "Tin or Tun” at the same time on same drum but can hit Ta on one drum and Tin on other drum at same time. Same concept for other strokes.

In other words 
Tabla Tarang artist can produce only two notes harmony at max as again he has two hands and one hand produce one stroke at a time.
Its not like piano . (In piano you can hit 5 notes at a time with one hand and 5 other from other hand maximum).
So, most of the time the arrangement of these tablas are used as solo melodic tuned instrument.
Its not necessary to play Tabla Tarang in authentic way , you can play the instrument in other ways you want .

Applications – Ideas

You can do sound design stuff with these variety of samples and create texture you never created before . This instrument can be layered with other sounds. It can be a part of your main background theme of movie as its character is so unique.
You can try soft samples of tun articulation to create very emotional and heart touching melodies and on the other side you can have aggressive punchiness of "Ta” and "Tin” Sounds.
You can use this instrument into your drum track to create fillers etc. There are many applications just play the instrument and see what inspires you.

UI Controls

Forgotten Keys FK9 Hammond Auto-Vari 28 V.4.2 KONTAKT Forgotten Keys FK9 Hammond Auto-Vari 28 V.4.2 KONTAKT
Soft / VST Instruments 30-08-2015
This Hammond AutoVari rhythm unit was originally built into an old old Hammond Dolphin organ from the 1970s. Although it only had 7 rhythm buttons, each one had 4 variations so there were 28 rhythms in all. The unit itself included circuitry and controls for the organs auto-accompaniment section but no circuit diagrams or schematics were available to see how to access it.

Sounds
The FK9 includes isolated samples of the 7 analogue sounds of the AutoVari. Each sound has been sampled 8 times and is chosen randomly within Kontakt. They are, or course, accessible via a keyboard or DAW sequencer also. The sounds are in 24-bit 44.1KHz wav format.

Rhythms
Each of the 28 rhythm patterns have been re-created for Kontakt. They are not sampled loops, rather they are sequences that trigger the individual sound samples when needed. This is how a real drum machine works, only here we use samples instead of a sound generator circuit.

Setup
The Setup tab offers greater control over how the FK9 sounds and operates. There are volume, pan and tune controls for each sound. Incoming MIDI notes can be mapped to any rhythm. Random tune and volume controls add a little human element to the sounds.

Inside
Here’s what the AutoVari looked like inside. There was no case of course as it was enclosed by the organ cabinet. Some of the controls you see here were for the organs auto-accompaniment section.

The technology of 1979.... Here today!
What would a virtual orchestra have sounded like if all you had to work
with was analogue synthesizers? It was a question that Indiginus felt
compelled to answer. Why? Well, probably because we're not very good
at market research, but also because we believe that composers can
never have too many tools to work with.


The 'orchestra' consists of Strings, Winds, and Percussion sections. Within
each section are elements that have assignable key and velocity ranges,
volume controls, and transposition. Also included are a gated pad effect,
2 programmable pitch modulated elements, bass, and a simple noise
generator rhythm sequencer.

The update includes:

-New improved reverb, which gives the whole instrument a richer and more airy sound!

-Several new PadScape presets, new Pitchmod sounds and patterns, and some new preset nkis.

-Same great flavor!
