Rhythmic Robot releases Skyline - Analog Keys and Rhythms for Kontakt

Rhythmic Robot has released Skyline Analog Keys and Rhythms for Kontakt.

Skyline is sampled from a rare Italian GIS Skyline keyboard. The Skyline was an early 70s analog keyboard-and-rhythms combo machine with 3 combinable keyboard tones (giving it a grand total of 7 sounds) and six preset analog rhythms. It was a strikingly designed instrument, with a contoured and beveled matte black case standing on twin columns attached to a pedestal base. The casing also housed an amp and twin speakers, which helped to take the edge off the transistor sound and gave the Skyline a surprisingly sweet, warm tone.

Rhythmic Robot's sampled version of the instrument samples all of the tones and their combinations, ensuring that combined tones sound exactly as they do on the original Skyline (rather than recreating them in Kontakt). It also contains the Preset Rhythms, which have been sliced and are fully sync-able to host DAW tempo – and also can be combined for multi-rhythms. In addition to the Preset Rhythms there are individual kit piece hits for the rhythm tones, which have been multi sampled and are triggered randomly to avoid machine-gunning.

Skyline incorporates some carefully-chosen effects accessible from the front panel, with Compression and Level controls for the Rhythm section, and Tube saturation, Vibrato and envelope Attack and Decay for the keyboard sounds, plus a lush Chorus. Although the original Skyline was mono, the sampled version includes a subtle stereo spread from the low notes to the highs. Output can be run through an amp cab simulator for an extra "live" feel.

Features:

  • All 7 possible keyboard tones sampled at 24-bit.
  • All 6 analog preset rhythms sampled.
  • Rhythms freely combinable and will automatically sync to host tempo.
  • Compression and Level controls for rhythms.
  • Tube saturation, Vibrato, envelope Attack and Decay, and amp cab simulation built in.
  • Stereo spread tracks keyboard position for subtle width.

Price: £8.95.

Compatible with Kontakt version 4.2.3 and above (including Kontakt 5). Not compatible with Kontakt Player.
