Aqualignum for Alchemy released on patchpool





The sound library Aqualignum combines waterphone samples from my MachFive library
Scattered Entity Vol. 1 with original oud samples, an arab string instrument especially multisampled for this library.

The mysterious and haunting tones of the waterphone meet the warm embracing string sounds of the orient. Tradition melds with futurism, water, wood and metal compose Aqualignum. This library contains 56 patches (including 1 variation) making use of 1.76 GB of samples, resynthesized sounds and electronic derivatives. Multisampled string instruments derived from the oud with up to 5 velocity layers and 3x round robin (variations per sample), calm and dark drones, beautiful and fragile waterphone pads, ominous and evocative soundscapes, futuristic textures and metallic percussion instruments are contained in this set.

The oud articulations include plectrum-picked strings (played with a special oud plectrum), finger-plucked vibrato tones, up and down slides, tremoli, bowed notes (violin bow), scraped strings and some phrases.

The waterphone was played with two differently sized bows creating all kinds of arpeggio textures with water-modulated decay-phases, scraping and moaning metal sounds, long sustained notes played with a violin bow for creating multisampled tonal pad sounds and the instrument was beaten with various beaters for metallic percussion sounds and bass tones.

As in all my soundsets for Alchemy I make extensive use of Alchemy's complex modulation possibilities and filters, often intermodulating LFOs/MSEGs/sequencers with each other and assigning numerous parameters to a single Performance Controller. This enables the user to deeply interact with the sounds and shape it according to his/her needs and preferences. The patches can also serve as a starting point for the user's own creations when loading new samples into them and then using the pre-assigned controllers and snapshots in the Remix Pad.

All samples in this library were recorded with 3 Neumann microphones in L-C-R in 48 Khz/24 Bit, a U87 as the center mic - a stereo set of KM 184 for L-R, the microphone signals of all oud samples were phase-aligned which improves the stereo picture, enhances the transparency of the sound and makes for snappier transients.

You can view/download the PDF for Aqualignum with more details, the licence agreement and the patch list including playing tips and deteiled descriptions for each patch here.

DNA for Molekular FX released on patchpool

Today I released my Snapshot Bank DNA for Native Instruments Reaktor Molekular FX:




DNA for NI's Molekular is a Snapshot Bank which requires the full version of Reaktor. It contains 98 presets with 4 variations each in the Morphing section, making use of the sophisticated modulation system inside this unique effect instrument. Some of these snapshots orbit more on the sonic outskirts of the musical universe, some are variations on a theme.

Beautiful ambient, ethereal, mysterious and haunting textures are waiting for you, stuttering and glitchy temposynced mayhem for spicing up loops and beats, moving Filterscapes and stereo animators to process pads and other horizontal textures as well as some experimental sounds that are beyond any categorization.

All presets have the 5 positions in the morphing section programmed, these can be used as a starting point for morphing between the complex effect modulations in each preset. Each preset also has more or less complex morphing modulations assigned.

All snapshots are programmed 100% wet for Molekular to be used on a send bus. If you insert Molekular directly on an instrument track, use the “Dry“-knob at the upper right of the GUI to blend in the unprocessed audio signal.

Patch categories:
  • Atmospheres – 42 
  • Filterscapes – 9 
  • Glitch&Stutter – 23 
  • Pitch Generators – 15 
  • Experimental Lab – 9



Here is a playlist with all videos I made for this set.

SoundPack Overtones released on patchpool

I just released a SoundPack (wavs/48 Khz/24 Bit/557.5 MB uncompressed) Overtones with samples from my Alchemy library MetaVox +1 new processed overtone soundscape.

The 76 samples are categorized in four folders:

Transitions (31 pure samples and 6 samples with isolated harmonics) - harmonic transitions in various speeds and rhythms at various root notes, also using isolated files where the root notes were totally removed so that only the harmonics remain. Sometimes these harmonics were then tuned to a tempered scale eliminating the natural pitch offset natural harmonics have.

Gliss and Trills (16 samples) - overtone trills and glissandi where the root note shifts in pitch and the harmonics sometimes even shift in the opposite direction.

Throat Singing (10 samples +1 spectralized derivative) - tuvinian style drones and transitions.

Processed (12 samples) - electronically processed derivatives, also using isolated files where the root notes were totally removed so that onlythe delicate harmonics remain.

Price: € 30 EUR
Delivery: Download (RAR)

Sonic Cinema for HALion 5 released on patchpool












I just released my first sound library for Steinberg's HALion 5.

This sound library comprises dozens of cinematic soundscapes, evocative pads and musical textures designed for producing epic soundtracks, ambient music and anything that needs inspiring sonic ingredients beyond the ordinary.

Sonic Cinema also contains dark cinematic brass instruments made with/derived from sampled instruments like the sousaphone, trombone, euphonium and french horn which were exclusively multisampled for this library, mainly in a dry studio environment. Some of the french horn recordings were conducted in a church.

Then there are sounds in this library made with/derived from a multisampled acoustic guitar played with an electric bow and you will find some beautiful and otherworldly chime and glass sounds. Scraped Tamtam sounds add another mysterious dimension to this sound collection. Some playful and complex sequencers as well as some metal impact sounds derived from field recordings complete the sonic picture.

The 92 patches combine HALions outstanding granular engine, the normal sampling mode and the very versatile synth module. Eight Macros and the Modwheel are programmed for each preset which enables the user to deeply interact with the sounds, many patches also use Aftertouch, Sphere-modulation and keyswitches. FlexPhrasers and Trigger Pads were used to create the arp and sequencer patches.

Sonic Cinema is distributed as a HALion vstsound-archive for the sample content and tagged vst-presets.

Specifications: 

  • 92 instruments / presets.
  • 3.18 Gigabyte of samples (48 khz/ 24 Bit / stereo).

Waterphone Contemplation

After  5 days of cutting and editing waterphone samples I know have a great collection of sounds. Here is a demo using 4 instances of MachFive, each one playing a different waterphone patch. There are 2 keyswitchable Trio-patches involved, where you can choose on the interface which 3 samples/trios you're playing, how you want them mapped, sampling or granular, lot's of modulation options, then there is the Long Bow Pad in the 2nd half of the demo, with 13 multisampled long pitches over the entire waterphone range using a violin bow, sometimes crossfading different parts of a recording to get these ethereal sustained sounds. The metal percussion is also waterphone. There will be about 600 MB of waterphone samples (around 100 samples) in this library.

Waterphone Sphere


Ambient demo combining the first three waterphone patches from Scattered Entity for MachFive 3 - 100% waterphone sounds, 100% MachFive 3.
The percussive sounds were made by hitting the bottom of the waterphone with a soft beater, the patch has 6x round robin samples and produces some great sub-bass frequencies.
