In order to obtain more depth and versatility to the sound, 3 sound sources have been recorded and processed to add beautiful background layers.
01. TAPE PAD
Its pad type created by denaturing the piano recording through a Tascam portastudio 414 mkII and a 70s mixer, Boss KM60.
02. TAPE PAD SUB
The same sound as Tape Pad but one octave lower for more flexibility when added to the piano sound.
03. LITTLE ORGAN
Recording of an electric Lorenzo Chord organ using a pair of Neumann KM184.
Independent controls for piano sound volume and Texture layer.
Volume control of the note release pedal sound.
Lowpass filter for the Texture layer.
Attack and release parameters for the Texture layer.
Control of low and high frequencies to change the timbre easily or simply to better integrate the instrument into your mix.
Delay and Reverb sends with their timing parameter
Bionic is a “transient splicing engine”, i.e. it is designed to give detailed control over a range of parameters needed to mix and match a number of different initial transients to another set of tails/longer sounds.
SOUND DESIGN POSSIBILITIES
The result are
Hybrid recreations of classic sounds with mostly organic attacks (taps, mallets, plucks, brush) and a mix of organic and synth/pure sine tails.
Creative, inventive sounds that push the combinations of previously unrelated sounds into new territory
Some of the “bionic” sounds included in this initial version of the product (Lite):
Replicas of classic house organ sounds
Celesta, Music Box, Xylophone
A range of bass sounds including a “reconstructed” pizzicato upright bass
There are four layers, accessible on page 1: two transient layers, and two tail layers. Levels can be adjusted as balance between each of the tail/transient layers respectively, and globally between transients and tails. Each layer contains sample offset and tuning controls as well as a “humanize” function which introduces subtle to not-so-subtle random pitch variations (especially helpful for making non-tonal transients more realistic).
The effects page includes filters, EQ, saturation and delay + reverb controls.
4 layers of sound: 2 transient layers and 2 tail layers
Extensive sound sculpting controls, including crossover fade (between transient and tail samples), crossover point, tail envelope, transient attack curve (shape)
Vibrato, Velocity Sensitivity (Volume, Low Pass and High Pass) and Humanize Controls for in-depth realism
20 Presets: Tap Celesta, Tap Bell, Mr Android Pluck, Plastic Pizzicato Bass, Breathy Stab, Expansive Xylophone, Rhodesian Scholar, House Organ, Vibey House Organ, Steel Drum Baby, Music Box, Starlight Swoosh, A Gong or Two, Plucky Squelchy Bass, White Noise Organ Stab, Pillow Harp, Gamelan, Hammond Bass, Electric Bass, Heavy Tines.

Requires Native Instruments Kontakt 6.4.2 (Full Version)
The Total Composure Orchestra (TCO) is a full orchestral sample library created using only samples that are in the public domain. Total Composure is the first to offer such a library exclusively for the Kontakt format; making use of Kontakt’s scripting capabilities to greatly enhance the playability, realism, and functionality of these public domain samples.
The scripting aims to provide similar functionality across the different instrument groups, whatever the instrument; while more specific settings play to the strength of each instrument.
Most of the instruments only contain one set of samples per articulation, and some only have one recorded dynamic layer – this is one of the many limitations we have found with using public domain samples. We have overcome these issues using a variety of physical modeling techniques that enhance the audio material. Using dynamic filters and intelligent repetition scripting we have removed the limitation of single dynamic recordings and solitary sample sets.
Although we have put a lot of work into this product it is important to remember that at its core are the samples provided free of charge by a small number of people. Total Composure has gathered these samples from various locations and brought them all to one place where they can be used together.
Reflekt Audio & DanFur Music teamed up yet again to bring music makers across the globe a new heavy hitting plug-in called REPLIK.
REPLIK is a futuristic type of plug-in for any producer of any caliber.
REPLIK is a bass engine that allows for it’s user
to shape a selected bass sound to something more suitable to taste.
REPLIK has 10 different bass tone presets and each of the 10 bass tone presets have 5 bass type sounds that make up that 1 preset sound. This means we can tweak 1 bass sound from 5 different layers.
So when we select 1 of the bass tones we can shape the 5 layers that make up that 1 bass tone to our liking by using the onboard GUI. REPLIK’S bass sounds range from slimy 808 type sounds to very futuristic type bass sounds. Equipped with onboard essential effects such as LFO, Filter, ADSR parameters for each layer, Pan & more.
REPLIK is a must have for all producers and not to mention it is free.
