Riot Audio has announced the release of Digital Analog Clouds, a set of morphing pads created with a hybrid analog/digital pathway involving modular effects and a mix of organic and synthetic sources.
Digital Analog Clouds was created in collaboration with composer and sound designer Simone Vallecorsa, also known under his electronic music alias Aeph.
Riot Audio's Clouds engine generates organic movement between different sample sources and groups. It contains two layers, A and B, each of which in turn contains a base sublayer and a target sublayer, i.e. four layers in total.
The source sounds for Digital Analog Clouds were produced using a hybrid digital/analog signal chain, including outboard gear such as:
- Make Noise Shared System.
- Plus Telharmonic.
- MI Plaits & Warps.
- Intellijel Rainmaker.
- Arp Odyssey.
...and in-the-box sound design tools including Reaktor, Serum, Sugar Bytes Aparillo.
- 10 Instruments:
- Airy Factory / Atonal Evolution / Diamond Flux / Glass Tower / Harmonious Overtones / Jitter Bleeps / Nostalgic Mist / Organ Failure / Refrigerator / Tranced Sentence.
- 12 layers of sound in each instrument: A/B layers with two sublayers each and a 3 octave spread.
- 6 presets (snapshots) per instrument = 60 sound presets in total.
- Lexicon Reverb Modelling.
- Based on Riot Audio's proprietary CLOUDS engine using Kontakt's AET Filter morphing capabilities.
- Total size of sampled content: 2.64 GB.
Intro Price: £39 (Reg. £59).
