//evolving looped phrases//

sample library for Kontakt Player

GLASS explores the world of undulating and evolving looped textures in 4 instruments. Each instrument comprises of 16 selectable sound sources – analogue basses and pads, studio recorded acoustic strings and woodwinds, deep modular synths, granular processed sound design and field recordings. Altogether it has 64 sound sources to layer and sculpt using the built in effects processing

“To my ears all four of the instruments are capable of producing wonderfully evocative evolving pads or underscores that work well either on their own or layered with other sounds” Sound On Sound

Instruments

Swell captures and accentuates acoustic instrumentation with long evolving forms

Resonance imitates and builds on the vibrating and resonant nature of abstract objects such as tubes, drum skins and strings

Tape delves into analog tape and delay processing through a Uher monitor and Roland Space Echos

Glitch utilises weird and wonderful mangling instruments including the Cooper Outward to re-define the nature of acoustic and digtal waveforms

Demos

Effects

Lo-pass cutoff – filters out high frequencies. The button reveals resonance and controls for a multi shape LFO

Hi-pass cutoff – filters out the lower frequencies. The button reveals resonance and controls for a multi shape LFO

Saturate – with a nod to Tim Hecker, saturate at instrument level to bring out the harsher overtones, adding a warm distorted fuzz – watch the master volume!

Phase – inspired by leslie cabinets with an in-built rotating speaker, phase is a stereo effect that is bpm synced from your DAW

Stereo – a simple stereo modelling effect that can spread the stereo field of the instrument wider, or constrict to mono

Room – a natural sounding convolution reverb

Blur – a delay that sounds more like a reverb by taking microsecond particles and diffusing them into a reverb that stretches and spreads the sound into a wash
