Rhythmic Robot has released Typewriter, a sampled instrument for Kontakt.
Typewriter is a sampled version of a 1920s Imperial wide-carriage typewriter. It includes a pool of randomly-selected keystrikes, plus a host of carriage-return, bell, platen wind, spool wind, shift, tab and other mechanical noises. Keystrikes can be "played" with one hand from a MIDI keyboard's white notes while shift, tab, carriage return and so on can be added at will via the black notes.
Typewriter is ideal for special effects, stutter-type glitches, foley effects or sound design. It is being released in time for Valentine's Day so users can "write love letters straight from their heart... in style".
- 21 randomly-selected keystrike samples: no machine-gunning.
- Mechanical noises, platen winds, tabs, shift up and shift down, space bar etc.
- Mapped so as to be "playable" from a MIDI keyboard: type from your synth.
Price: £1.50. Requires Kontakt version 4.2.3 or later (including Kontakt 5).
