A sample library for Kontakt made by plucking directly on the strings of the clavinet.
Clavinet Harp is a radical departure in sounds derived from the sounds of Hohner Clavinet. With timbres and variations far surpassing that of other similar sampled instruments. It’s a deep and colourful free formed research into the Clavinet core. drawing out its unique qualities through different kinds of treatments.
Sounds were made with 2 x Hohner Clavinet D6, 1 Hohner Clavinet E7, and 1 Hohner Pianet.
Amps : The collection includes a small cigar-amp box, a custom Transistor NRK amp, a Vintage Roland Jazzchorus, Roland Bass-Cube, Fender BandMaster (1969), Fender Twin (1967), Mesa Simul Satellite, and a vintage Marshall JCM 800. Sometimes two different amps beside each other for a wider stereo and fuller sound.
Analogue signal chains, loads of electronics and multiple high-end microphones was used in the creation of Clavinet Harp.
The used mics were stereo pairs of : Pearl Elm-Cs , Coles 4038s , Sure SM57s, Neumann U87s, TLM103s, Neumann KL84s and Sennheiser MKH 800s
The resizable Kontakt user interface is intuitive and easy to play with. On the left side you have the usual suspects : level, attack and release, reverb, delay, lfo, pitch vibrato and lowpass filter. Mixer tracks on the right side, with purge buttons and routing opportunities. The FX button on the bottom row, opens a scripted effect bonanza that gives you countless ways of morphing your sounds and combining various, sometimes randomised, parameters with a XY pad.
The XY pad allows you to quickly create sonic texural variations . The XY is directed to almost everything in the plugin, including oscillators, filters, FX and Modulators. This FX department is turned off by default, but should you be in need of some creative inputs, just click the FX button, and a menu opens.The FXs XY-pad can be controlled by MIDI CC, aftertouch or pitchbend wheel (CC128 / CC129).
The FX menu opens a menu with different pre-tweaked FX settings controlled from XY pads. Choose from a variety of flexible modulation options such as an Pitch Follower (synth), multiple granular, sadistic filter, complex randomized serialconnected evolving textures and sound design elements.
The mix controls allow you to blend together the different mixes and set the volume levels to your likings. There are up to 5 mixes to choose from, each one intended to provide a different sound and allow flexibility.
We played around with different signal chains, so there are variations in this setup throughout the Library. We found it more important to get each patch as good as possible, rather than being locked to one particular setup nomatterwhat.
