10 Soundware has released Mixer Feedback model M K, a new sound set for Native Instruments Kontakt 5.
Designed by Taichi Furudate, these patches are based on audio captured from a no-input mixer, an instrument contrived by connecting the output of an audio mixer with its input to incite feedback. The fourth in a series of four titles, each centered on a different mixer, this release features a contemporary, workhorse model by an American manufacturer (a model within a series known to have democratized professional quality recording in the 1990's).
The timbres generated by the mixer used in Mixer Feedback model M K can be described as "like a soft synth", according to Taichi Furudate. As a reflection of its distinction in its conventional usage, he characterizes its feedback signal in a no-input mixer configuration as "clear and accurate" and "relatively stable and controllable", in stark contrast to other models in his mixer collection. In this sole sound set in the 10 Soundware Mixer Feedback series to feature a modern, high fidelity mixer, he crosses professional audio equipment with hacker-like ingenuity.
The 32.8 MB download includes 50 .nki files and 100 WAV files (24-bit/44.1 kHz).
Mixer Feedback model M K is available now for $29.99 at www.10soundware.com.
