12-Bit Crunch

12-Bit Crunch 'Jazz Machine' for NI Kontakt updated to v1.1

Jazz Machine, the début Kontakt instrument from 12-Bit Crunch has been updated to version 1.1 and is a free update for all existing owners.

Changes:

  • Chord names. Displayed in real-time.
  • Export the chords as MIDI by drag/drop direct into your DAW.
  • A new effect- 'Warble'.
  • A settings page with volume offset for vinyl crackle and warble intensity.
  • Coloured octaves for those using Native Instruments S-series keyboards.

Here's a walkthrough which discusses the new features in detail: YouTube.com/watch?v=895Q3-7Zmto

If you're unfamiliar with Jazz Machine, it's inspired by the highly sample-able sound of Blue Note Records and artists like Grant Green, Herbie Hancock and Donald Byrd. It contains 84 jazz chords (seven types in all twelve keys), each individually played on four different vintage instruments:

  • A Challen upright piano
  • A 1960s Epiphone Casino electric guitar
  • A rare Rhodes Home electric piano (basically a '73 mkI).
  • A Deagan vibraphone

It sits somewhere between a sample-player and a chord-generator. When you hit an individual key, you hear a different type of jazz chord, played by a real human-being, on a real instrument, recorded to 44.1kHz/16-bit .WAV files (then compressed into an easily downloadable Kontakt patch). Just like when you sample a vinyl and map it to a pad or key.

As you're bashing away on Jazz Machine, creating instantaneous musical chord progressions, you can switch between the four instruments on-the-fly, without interrupting your flow.

Depending on how hard you hit a key, and whether the modulation-wheel is up or down, you access one of the 4 different articulations:

  • A straight chord.
  • The same chord with it's attack chop'ped off.
  • A raked chord.
  • A top melody-note
