The Electronic Garden ARP Collection WAV KONTAKT Lemonshare
What's in the collection? How about 400+ MB of multi-sampled sounds, patched into 128 patches each for Kontakt 2 & 3, and the Reason 4 NN-XT and Combinator? Though they share the same sample content, each patch collection is different, since each sampler offers its own unique parameters to tweak. Does that mean that the sounds are warped beyond recognition? Indeed not. I have included each multi-sampled patch in an "almost raw" state. Why "almost raw"? Simply because I employed a bit of velocity, glide, pitch and mod wheel control to provide some performance enhancements. Additionally, there are a number of patches that are built on the same samples but take advantage of each sampler's unique filtering and effects to provide alternatives to some of the "almost raw" patches. These patches retain the spirit and raw analog sound of the original instruments, while offering the performance control and convenience of modern samplers. Buy one format, get 'em all So what if you have both Kontakt and Reason? Do you have to plump for both? Nope. If you buy one, we'll send you the download link for that product. However, if you ask us, we'll send you another link for the other collection, too (though be aware that you'll be downloading two sets of samples, so be prepared to take your time). Heck, we'll even provide the raw patches in SFZ format, should you so desire (though those patches are lacking many of the performance features like portamento and effects). If you have any other formats you'd like to see, just drop us a line and we'll see if we can accommodate you. Kontakt patch count: - 28 Basses - 43 Leads and comps - 30 Pads - 15 Special effects - 4 Drum and percussion kits (two raw, two fx versions) - 9 Raw wave sets - 700+ samples in 24-bit .wav format
I've collected a number of vintage synthesizers here at The Electronic Garden and the ARP
instruments are among my favorites. ARP existed to give Moog a run for his money with
affordable, stable and powerful synthesizers, string machines and even a stand alone
sequencer. Even now, these instruments perform surprisingly well, and have become
sought-after on the secondhand market, fetching ridiculously high prices. I've seen
ARP 2600s going for six grand in recent months. Wow!
You don't have to stump up that kind of moolah to get your hands on that oh-so-desirable
retro sound, however. I have sampled my entire ARP Collection and rolled the results
into patches for Native Instruments' Kontakt and Reason 4's NN-XT samplers. Over 700
samples have been meticulously looped and patched into 128 patches for your sampler.
There are basses, leads, special effects, pads, and percussion, all bursting with that
classic analog sound. I've even mapped edited and looped raw waveforms so that you can
infuse a bit of that legendary ARP sound into your own patch creations.
For this collection, I drew upon four ARP instruments:
A black and gray model with the legally suspect copy of the Moog filter design. This
patchable semi-modular instrument is the classic ARP synthesizer. Used by Tony banks,
David Bowie (on Low), and Vince Clarke (who swore by it for kick drums), the ARP 2600
is a three-oscillator beastie that combined the best of modular and portable instrument
designs into one tolex-encased package. I patched dozens of sounds together and
multi-sampled them up the keyboard to provide an authentic playing experience.
The Odyssey was ARP's answer to the Minimoog, offering features missing on Moog's popular
synthesizer (and even some, like oscillator sync and a high pass filter, that were
missing from the 2600). Favored by IQ, Gary Numan and Ultravox, the Odyssey saw a
resurgence of popularity in the 1980s. Mine is a black and gold MkII model, coming in
after the filter settlement, but before the entire line was switched over to the black
and orange finish.
ARP Omni II
The Omni is a hybrid instrument. Featuring pseudo "full polyphony" courtesy of the same
divide-down technology found on electronic organs (and Moog's Polymoog), the Omni II
combined a string section with a basic synthesizer. It was ARP's biggest selling
instrument and found favor with Tangerine Dream, The Cars, Kraftwerk and Joy Division
(it's all over Closer, my favorite Joy Division album). I love this thing for pads, and
I've sampled a number of my favorite string/synth combos for the set. Mine is, by the
way, the garish black and orange version.
ARP Model 1601 Sequencer
I love sequencers. I have a large collection of analog and early digital sequencers here
in the studio. The ARP 1601 gets a lot of use, thanks to the fact that it offers
quantized voltage outputs for those times when you want to change the notes on the fly.
Steve Roach featured the ARP Sequencer prominently on his early albums and live shows,
and it's easy to see why. The 1601 only figures in a few of the sounds in the collection,
but they are typical of how I myself use the thing to provide a bit of motion to my pads.
