Two instruments in one pack.

1. Whitebox Rainbow

7 sounds; 7 effects racks; 7 colours; 1 rainbow.

The Instrument rack has 7 samples chosen for their ability to work singly or in a group. The feel is self-consciously NOT trendy so you won't get a wobbly bass here though there is nothing to stop you inserting one.

The single global control fixes release length combined with filter resonance, the latter lending a subtle edginess as the note gets longer.

The effects racks are… Reverb, Chorus, Harmonics, Grain Repeats, Gate, Ping Delay, Tremolo.

2. Whitebox Key Pad

I've taken some samples off the Live 8 Ambient and Evolving Racks and put them into a Live 9 Intro rack to make a bifocal instrument that sweeps from an upfront keyboard sound reminiscent of a Witchitaw Lineman Fender Rhodes to a distant trippy FX pad straight out of Unknown Pleasures. No, it's NOT an illegal sample.

It's lush and magnificent! Have a listen.

The dials:

  • 'Key/Pad Balance' sweeps from one sample to the other using the Filter Frequency. Both samples have this parameter mapped to the single macro and I've used the opposite filter types on each: 'Key' has HP24 while 'Pad' has LP24. This gives the impression of a cross-fade as the dial is turned.
  • 'Short or Long' is fairly obvious. Not so obvious perhaps is the mapping to both Decay and Release on both samples. Attack and Sustain are up to you.
  • The remaining dials are self-explanatory.

Experiment with the settings to explore the variations and don't hesitate to drop-in any samples you like...
