- Abstrung focuses on plucked and fingered instruments like Pipa, Zithers, Dulcimers, Seagull, Mandolins, Plucked Pianos, etc.
- Vesper sounds derive from bells, mallets, metals.
- Aerkord's sample pool consists of woodwinds such as bamboo flutes, naval, duduk, bansuri, flutes but also bowed Cellos and Violins, Ebow guitars, Harmoniums, and Female Sustained vocals and more. It's the biggest of the three with a total of over 22GB NCW and 205 Sound Sources.
All sounds are presented as raw material but also as modeled, synthesized and designed instruments, resulting in an original palette of inspiring sounds for creators of electronic and organic music.
Version 1.2 includes 2 sound sources layers, a Twin Step Sequencer, an Arpeggiator (and yes, they work also simultaneously, in serial or parallel), Step Effects, Trails Layer, a Sequence MIDI Drag & Drop function, a Crystal Generator and the intelligent randomisation function which allows to generate fresh and useful sounds every time with option to undo, redo and browsing through undo history.
All sounds can be mutated through the 2 new Convolvers with more than 180 different effects to transform each sound layer from ambient to total chaos.
Each sequence can be temporarily randomised at the tip of a "keyswitch", to spice up some stale repetitive phrases.
Each instrument includes 25+ Starters Snapshots that show case a few of the possible configurations and sounds.
