RSSD01 is the first in Replika Sound's new series of Suspense Devices. This is the Dark Piano.

It is a versatile instrument built around sampled Glissandi, String Scrapes, Body Hits and String Plucks. These samples are all long (up to 45 seconds) taking up 1.07 GB on the hard-disk.

It has 15 automatable MIDI controls allowing real-time looping and continuous change of all sound parameters. This allows easy creation of unique dark textures.

There are 3 instrument versions in this library.

Main Features:

  • Forward-Reverse Real-time Looping Performance Mode : While a key is held down a sample can be retriggered at any point along its length by simply moving the Mod Wheel. The retriggering alternates between forward and reverse versions of the sample being played.
  • Forward or Reverse Sample Selection using the Mod Wheel (when not in Looping Mode).
  • Sample Playback Speed Control (real-time control using Kontakt's Time Stretch algorithms).
  • Sample Playback Offset Control (adjust where playback starts anywhere along the samples length).
  • Multi-LFO based Volume Gating. Real-time controls for Amount and Speed.
  • Distance Control - Real-time control over the apparent distance of the instrument. This simulate loss of Proximity effect, gain in high frequency air absorption and stereo narrowing that occurs with increasing distance.
  • 2 x 4-Pole Adaptive Resonance filters. High and Low pass filters with Frequency and Resonance controls.
  • ADSR Volume Envelope controls.
  • 2 Pitch Controls - Coarse (Range +/- 1 Octave), Fine (Range +/- 50 cents). The instrument also responds to the Pitch Bend Wheel. This has a range of another octave making a total instrument pitch range of +/- 2 octaves.
  • 3 Band Parametric Bell Curve EQ - with Frequency, Gain and Bandwidth controls.
  • Delay / Echo Unit.
  • Convolution Reverb Unit with 22 loadable Impulse Responses.

All MDI CC controls are fully patchable so the user can tailor everything to suit their own MIDI setup.

All samples respond in real-time to MIDI CC 11 (Expression).

Each Articulation Group can be purged from RAM at any time with on-screen switches.

The samples are arranged in 5 Key-Switched Articulation groups :

  • Glissandi 1 - Horizontal drags across the Piano strings with Fingers, Nails, and Ceramic tools.
  • Glissandi 2 - Horizontal drags across the Piano strings with Wood and Brush tools.
  • Scrape - Vertical scrapes up and down the Piano strings.
  • Hits - Hits on the Piano body and other working parts with various tools.
  • Plucked Notes - Piano strings individually plucked with a plectrum.

This Virtual Instrument is designed for the full version of Kontakt 5 and retails for $70.
