    Here comes a new demo combining two patches, Granular Glissandi made with multisampled cello octave glissandi and their electronic derivatives, you can keyswitch between natural and electronic gliss, control the gliss speed, or freeze the sound and control sample position with the Modwheel/Macro and do all sorts of other things with it. The other patch uses processed arpeggiated minor chords from violin/cello in split mode, layered with an arpeggiated synth. Both patches will have scripted interfaces.

    This is a demo for the patch Vc Vln Tremolo Mix using long mutisampled tremolo samples, each note has 2 dynamic waves where the bow moves towards the brigde and back creating a transition of harmonics, a keyswitch let's you add a wavetable synth which uses an imported single cycle from a cello sustain, you cam control it's volume in the interface. The cello plays up to C3, then the violin takes over up to C5, all thirds (sometimes minor, sometimes major) were sampled. Sample start can be randomized with the Modwheel (up to 50%) or you can set sample start with a controller. Lot's of filtering and FX options/sounds are available.

    Quick impro with the patch Granular Vibrato Bows - multisampled vibrato cello notes with long bowing (8-10 bows per note), in the demo I was controlling the bowing speed with a Macro, controlling cutoff with the Modwheel and sometimes adding some overdrive with another Macro, played live on disk:

    Two fresh patches with various electric guitar flageolets samples and textures are used in this ambient demo, this was played live in two passes including all the Macro controller tweaks, Modwheel and Aftertouch:

    This new demo track combines two fresh patches all with electric guitar sounds or derivatives thereof, splits and layers, one MachFive synth involved involved layered with one of the guitar drones, all fully controllable. This one is quite a trip:

    Here comes a demo video for the patch "Cello Portato Layers" which now has a scripted interface and the snapshot system implemented.

    Jamming with three fresh patches in this track, temposynced cello loops multisampled over an 2 octave range, with keyswitches for either finger plucked pizz or drumstick beaten pizz, then we have Spilt String Scapes which have temposynced modulations for filter and amplitude on board, and the solo sound is named Sul Pont synth, multisampled sul pont cello mixed with FM synth also keyswitchable for different electronic layers. It's so good just to just jam with these sounds after all those days of sample editing....

    Multisampled psaltery tremoli in unison mode (3 voices, Modwheel for detuning up to +/- 1 octave) with two keyswitchable articulations (plectrum and chop sticks) meets Cello Glissando Scanner, where you can scan through two multisampled gliss phrases with the wheel/Macro and add all sorts of temposynced modulations (triplet based):

  • Coming soon on patchpool: Ambient Strings for MachFive 3

    I just released my second library for MachFive:





    Ambient Strings focusses on atmospheric sounds and textures derived from string instruments like cello, violin (electric and acoustic), electric and acoustic guitars, psaltery (ebowed, plucked and bowed) and oud. The patches combine textural sounds, multisampled acoustic instruments and more exotic instrument articulations with electronic textures all derived from the dry instrument samples to create wonderful, ethereal, dark and mysterious sound worlds. Expressive multisampled instruments, temposynced instrument sequences and morphable soloistic phrases are also included in this library.


    16 patches patches/instruments have scripted interfaces for extended sound manipulation, a snapshot system especially developed for this library allows the user to save and recall 5 snapshots, or recall the 5 snapshots programmed into the patches by default. So on top of the 75 patches this library ships with another 64 snapshot variations.


    All non-scripted patches have the Modwheel and the 8 Macros assigned in the info tab, quite a few also use Aftertouch. Many patches integrate the wealth of MachFive's sound generators and combine them with granular and normal sampling. In many patches temposynced modulators are used to animate the amplitudes and filters of the involved samples and sound generators, often keyswitchable sound combinations or different articulations are available within one patch. 
All patches which have several different sounds split across the keyboard (often over a range of six octaves or more) use key-colouring in MachFive's keyboard which makes it easier to navigate through the various split sounds.


    All acoustic instrument-samples in this library are recorded in a dry studio environment with top notch Neumann microphones in L-C-R at 48 Khz/24 Bit. All microphone signals are phase-aligned which enhances the stereo field and the transparency of the recorded samples.


    The Snapshot system
    The snapshot system especially developed for this library allows the user to save and recall 5 snapshots, or recall the 5 snapshots hard-coded into the patches by clicking on the "Reset" buttons at the bottom of the snapshot interface. To access the snapshots just click on the "Snapshots" button at the top right of the interface.


    You can view/download the PDF for this library with more details, the licence agreement, and the patchlist including descrtptions and playing tips here.


    Scripting by Iain Morland.

    Please note: this library requires the full version of MachFive 3 (version 3.2 and higher), it will not work with the UVI workstation.


    Product page.


    All demos were produced entirely with MachFive 3 using only patches from Ambient Strings, no post-processing was applied apart from a limiter on the outputs and some volume automation, if several instances of MachFive were used in a track.
