AudioThing has introduced EKR490 – a new virtual instrument, inspired by the sound of the classic Elka Rhapsody 490 strings machine.
EKR490 features two main sounds, Strings and Violoncello, and a combination of the two, which is slightly different than just mixing both sounds together. This synth was used by many artists, including Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, and Vangelis.
Here’s an audio demo:
- 2 Kontakt Instruments (.nki): tuned and original
- Envelope: Attack, Release
- Effects: 12dB/oct LP filter and Reverb
- 147 Samples (44.1kHz / 24Bit)
- Formats: Kontakt 4 and WAV
Pricing and Availability
EKR490 is available for the introductory price of €12 / $14 until March 16th, 2015, normally €14 / $16.50.
