AMBIENT PERCUSSION & PADS
Greenhead Chimes introduces our staple Atmosphere Layer mixer to Blueprint. This layer mixer, a staple of many of our libraries, contains three different processed signals created from the original samples. This extends the sonic possibilities of the instrument and makes it instantly inspiring to play with. The second instrument in our Blueprint series was recorded in Fracture Sounds home town of Huddersfield, at Greenhead Park. The team faced tough conditions, recording in between the quacking of ducks at dusk, but came through to produce a library that would influence future creations in Zen: Meditations.
The second instrument in our Blueprint series represents some of the framework created by the developers at Fracture Sounds that informed the creation of the tuned percussion instruments in Zen: Meditations.
Stereo Width – Increase to have greater stereo width, decrease to decrease the stereo spread of the raw Chimes signal only.
Soften Attack – Soften the initial transient of the raw signal, great for creating pads.
Damping – Increase the damping to reduce the note release.
Reverb – Control the overall volume of the built-in reverb. Click the settings cog for more controls.
Atmospheres Layers- Control 4 different layers. The raw layer is the unprocessed original samples, whilst the other 3 layers are processed sounds.
Atmosphere Intensity – Control the dynamics of the Atmosphere Layers only (CC1, Mod Wheel).
Sample Start – Increase the sample start time to reduce latency. Decrease the sample start time for more realism. The latency above is the correct number for the use of negative delay (pre-delay) in your DAW MIDI settings.
Velocity Response – Increase the velocity response to accentuate the volume difference between soft and hard velocities. Reduce the slider to increase the volume of the soft dynamics.
NKS SUPPORT AND KONTAKT PLAYER COMPATIBILITY
