  • Padsheaven2 released and news...

    Padsheaven2 is already out in the wild, but the good news:

    I was asking Urs (U-HE Zebra) to give the 3 little filters found in ZebraHZ to the regular Zebra.
    So Zebra users will not feel a little orpaned until waiting for Zebra 3.

    And now we got it! :thumbsup:

    http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewto...329088#5329088

    I was using them in some of the presets (on a spare line), from now regular Zebra users can use it too.
    So if you find a lonely filter standing stupidly on an empty line Swap it!
    Sounds much more smoother. (MS 2035 and TN filters)

    You'll find a little free bank to download. (just 8 presets, but with use of controllers you'll get more than 16 sounds out of it.)
    I am thinking to have a little song contest from the free bank and the winner(s) can take the whole soundset.
    I wanted to ask you first, before i post it on KVR.

    It's a nice selection of sounds but the challenge is there are no bass or drums so it's could be some ambient piece.

    Any thoughts or comments are welcome.

    Cheers,
    Joseph

    Great idea .. let us know if/when the contest starts. In the meantime, here are my First Impressions of the freebie patches:
    https://soundcloud.com/tonecarver/bi...st-impressions. This uses all 8 presets, right out of the box, with some slight reverb and high-pass on the master buss. Zebra is 2.5.4 so this is without the updated filters.

    Excellent work on this patch set Joseph, really outstanding.

      Hey that was fast, really nice piece and mood tonecarver!
      Many nice turn and changes, liked the rhytmic use of the bells too in the second half.
      Congrat and thanks for sharing with us!


      Thanks for your kind words too!
      I think those filters are not in the free bank, i'm not quite sure now...

      I will let you know the start of the contest. Likely in first days of May.

      Cheers,

        I'd be interested in a contest too - my latest piece (which I'm hoping to have ready for the next Podcast) makes extensive use of PadsHeaven1
        My new album is available now, here: https://thoughtexperiment.bandcamp.c.../supersymmetry

          Hi,


          Welcome everyone to:
          Compose a song/track using only the free presets from Padsheaven2:

          http://sound.artenuovo.com/padsheaven2.html


          download 8 free patches.


          Just 8 presets, but with controllers tweaked and musical imaginations there is much more than 8 colors.
          Because no bass and drum sounds in the free set,
          it's allowed to add a drum loop.




          Two weeks for composing, arranging and mixing (from 1. of May to 14 of May)


          Please don't make the tracks public before 14. of May.
          Send/email the tracks to the same website "contact us":
          http://sound.artenuovo.com/padsheaven2.html


          I will upload all the ready tracks to a soundcloud site and give a link to this tread too. Then all of us can choose the favorites with plays count for a week.
          The count will end on 21. of May. 24 hour GMT + 1 Hour (central Europe).


          The first 3 participant with the most plays will win the
          Padsheaven2 soundset.



          Cheers,
          Joseph

          I think you guys here on ambientonline have a great advantage in the contest!
          Who would like to joy:
          I would like to ask you to drop a comment on the main tread on KVR, it will be easier to follow who is in:
          http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=5341039#5341039


          Thank you, and best luck!

            Hi Joseph,

            Sounds like an awesome contest! I will definitely participate. Already downloaded the 8 presets and have them loaded into Zebra 2. They sound great!!!

            I have a question about the contest...

            When you say "controllers tweaked" does that mean we can only tweak the "performance" controls on the preset or we can tweak ANY knob in the preset, which would change the preset entirely?

            Looking forward to the contest!

            Cheers,

            -S1gns

            p.s. Even if I don't win, I'm still going to buy your new soundset. I've always been a fan of Padsheaven 1 and judging by how these 8 presets sound, Padsheaven 2 be an instant buy for sure.

              ThankYou S1gns!

              Even i would say: presets are for tweaking,
              for this contest lets stay: use the assigned controllers. (XY pads, Mw, Pb, Breath, Xpress, At, Vel.)

              So NOT ANY knob, which would change the preset entirely.
              (I was tending to allow little tweaks around, but then the rules would be out of control)


              But you can change the FX section as you needed for the track. (Delay, Reverb, Chorus times, depth, EQ)




              Cheers,
              Joseph

              Can i ask you to copy your question to the main forum thread for everyone:

                  Only 3 days left and i'v got only tonecarver's track. S1gns are you in?

                  I'v also tried what you should do, it wasn't so easy because of the very limited presets:
                  This little track using only the free dowloadable presets from
                  Padsheaven2. (+added drums)

                  wav file:
                  8free presets from Padsheaven2


                  https://soundcloud.com/hollosound/ho...sheaven2-8free




                  Maybe give some ideas to make some music with the free set.
                  3 days left to finish a track, and a BIG chance to win the Padsheaven2 soundset.
                  Still welcome anyone!

                    Thanks for the shoutout Hollo! I've been super busy but hopefully I'll find time to polish up my track and get my entry in. When is the exact cutoff time? Sunday night or Monday?

                        I know it better now: KVR time is GMT - 8 Hour.

                        To see the KVR time, log out of KVR so that you don't get your local adjusted time and then go to the main forum page.

                        To log out from KVR, piece of cake.

                        1. Press your nickname (up right corner)
                        2. Press Log Out.
                        3. Press Forum tab.
                        4. Here is the "Time now" clock.


                        *Note that you will have to log in again later.


                        All this help i'v got from Irion, thanks for him!

                        There is a question now about blind voting - only the track names will bw shown. Opinions?

                          Only half day left to finish the tracks ( about 10 hour left)

                            I'm in!

                            Just submitted my entry and there's only 5 minutes left to go! :biggrin:

                            I will upload the track to SoundCloud once the contest is finished.

                            Can't wait to hear everyone else's entries.

                            I can't believe I made it in on time...this has been the craziest week of 2013 for me. But I did it!

                            Be on the lookout for "Temporal Wavelength" by S1gns Of L1fe coming to a Padsheaven Contest near you.

                              Well the time has finally come, I can reveal my entry!

                              https://soundcloud.com/s1gnsofl1fe/temporal-wavelength


                              It was quite a challenge but I thought I did pretty well considering the restrictions of only a drum track and 8 presets from the demo set.

                              Congratulations to the winners and if you haven't yet, you should definitely check out Padsheaven 2 for Zebra 2! www.sound.artenuovo.com/padsheaven2.html
