Soniccouture have announced Ondes v2.0, a free update to their popular Ondes Martenot virtual instrument for Kontakt Player.
Ondes v2 features an overhauled GUI, but, perhaps most significantly, phase-locked samples. Previously, each original waveform sample was layered with the others so that you could blend the oscillator shapes as on the original unit; this worked pretty well, but resulted in a slightly wobbly, phasey sound – attractive, but not exactly like a real Ondes Martenot, which should sound like a single waveform. Phase-locking the samples together eliminates this issue, taking the Ondes sound to a new level of realism.
Ondes v2.0 is free for all registered Ondes user, who can login to their Soniccouture account to download the new product.
New customers can get Ondes v2 for 30% off by using the follow code: H3Y36TD (offer ends 15.8.14).
