20th December 2012
Precious Sound has released PreBrute, a new sound set for their "4Scoop" engine for Kontakt 5.
PreBrute is based on the Arturia MiniBrute. 20 waveforms were captured straight to Precious Sound's A/D Converters and 3 different signal chains, AMS 1073LB/API 512C/Tascam 122MKIII (Type 1 cassette tracked at slow speed to naturally roll off top end and create a really warm sound)
The "4Scoop" engine consists of 4 oscillators. Each Oscillator has a possible 80 waveforms to choose from (20 waveforms; 4 flavours) each with independent modulation and filtering options, these four oscillators are then summed in the global section to 2 master filters and various send/insert FX.
Precious Sound do not sample "Synth Pre-sets" as they "do not want to be limited to modulated waveforms/filter sweeps, etc."
The goal of the engine is to capture the character of hardware oscillators and modulate them within PreBrute's interface to create a sound of your own.
Precious Sound also had hardware in mind while developing the engine and at every stage of the engine when a effect/filter is off it is bypassed from the signal chain completely leaving you with a clean tone that can then be fed to any hardware filter of your liking. You can then save all your settings as pre-sets and can recall them anytime you like. This can be done all from the interface - no need to have multiple instrument files and have to deal with opening and closing each Kontakt instance.
- 2.16GB Kontakt 5.1 Library.
- 7,612 24-bit samples.
