Origin Vol. 5: Ukulele & Muted Piano - both lush and light
Play bold, grounded and wide-open sequences with the Muted Piano, add the light touch of the Ukulele, let both instruments playfully mingle, use a wide variety of effects from percussive timbres to ambient pads and more. Discover the unique combination of two carefully sampled, distinct instruments.
The Multi-Arpeggio-Designer (MAD) gives a wonderful performance when playing chords, melodies or progressions on your keyboard. All of this is instantly accessible via handcrafted, fully customizeable presets, in both the musical and tonal color category.
With its light, familiar tone, the ukulele is at home in the upper ranges. Let it happily pluck away to your score, give it a percussive twist, create ambient pads or run impressive modern-sounding arpeggios with it: The possibilities are endless and usually just one preset away.
The muted piano provides an interesting scope for tonal design. Playing simple chords can lay an atmospheric groundwork for your composition, while the Multi-Arpeggio-Designer can give the instrument a characteristic, modern, sometimes futuristic feel. Paired with the Ukulele, you can achieve a new and fresh sound right on the pulse of time.
The Multi-Arpeggio-Designer is the centerpiece of every "Origins"-instrument. Two fully customizable arpeggiators create interlocking patterns and broad soundscapes by combining the unique timbres of the two instruments.
The engine is designed to convey a musically meaningful, human performance, instead of a computer randomly aligning notes.
Load up one of 100+ inspiring presets or create your own arpeggios in as much detail as you like. The MAD provides a variety of different features and controls to realize your musical vision.
