Soundiron has released Granada 49, a new Kontakt instrument that faithfully captures a rare 1970s-era portable analog synthesizer by the now defunct Italian synth-maker Fesma.
The instrument's classic wood-accented body echoes the popular aesthetics of the 1970s and its fat, warm analog sound cuts through the mix. Soundiron sampled its 9 stock waveform presets and included tons of custom FX patches and sound-designed ambient synth pads created from the source to make this compact library playable and versatile. Whether you're looking to recreate an old 8-bit video game sound, fat synth bass tones or razer-sharp lead lines, the Granada 49 library can do it.
The power of Granada is unlocked by the easy-to-use yet powerful 3D-modeled user interface. Basic sound shaping options are included: volume swell, note attack time, release time and sample start offset let users mould the sound any way they want. Other main controls include vibrato and a special "Octave" knob, which really beefs up your tone by smoothly rolling in lower and higher octave layers.
The "Glide" option adds an adjustable-speed portamento pitch bend between notes. The advanced tempo-syncable LFO system features configurable LFO shape, modulation target, speed, intensity, and fade-in time. A versatile filter system allows you to select between 13 filter types, modulation options, and control the frequency and resonance. As always, Soundiron included a customizable arpeggiator, which lets users control pattern direction, rhythm, swing, randomization and duration. The advanced GUI is rounded out by a modular FX rack, which lets users put any of 18 different effects (reverb, distortion, etc.) in up to 10 slots, in any chain order they desire. This also includes 119 of Soundiron's high quality impulse responses which can be loaded into the "Reverb" effect.
