Sunsine Audio has released Impact, a set of 64 new presets for Impaktor.
The pack makes full use of every aspect of both synthesis engines. Physical Modeling is explored through the “Membrane” and “Resonator” sections, Noise Shaping through the “Noise + Vocoder” section, and Frequency Modulation though the FM synthesizer section. Many of the presets contain a combination of these techniques interacting and combining in various ways, including some “tuned” presets that allow playing discreet pitches in a scale depending on the frequency of the impulse. In this manner some presets allow a melody to be played in the style or spirit of a talking drum or steel drum.
The sounds in this set range from classic “ethnic” sound types such as clay or frame, steel, or talking drums, to more traditional electronic sounding drums, and finally futuristic style percussion and drum sounds which may be defined as industrial, alien, or hybrid instruments.
Sunsine Audio has released Explorer, a collection of 64 new presets for Magellan.
Here’s what they have to say about Explorer:
“Anyone looking for a bit of insight and exploration into this semi-modular behemoth should be pleased. Following hot-on-the-heels of our factory presets, these presets are of equal quality, and will greatly expand your palette.” says Fletcher Kaufman, owner of Sunsine Audio.
Each preset has the mod wheel and X-Y Pad routed to useful destinations. In addition 21 presets have been “Coupled” and labeled accordingly to be used as dual layer presets utilizing both synth engines. These presets maintain their function and individuality when used un-”Coupled” as well.
