Loadsa’ Clicks

I thought the following graph might prove interesting to some of you. It shows the items that have been clicked on the most in the last 30 days. As you can see the free synths seem to get the most downloads, and I was a little surprised not to see Cygnus at the top, but then I realised that some readers were clicking on the specific (SF & Space) links so if you add all 3 together..

The other surprise for me was that S3 was doing less well than S3B or S3K, plus I was amazed that Whooo was getting some attention as I had given it up as very esoteric.

Effects hardly got a showing with the exception of Isol8tor, perhaps I need to push those a little more?

RMP2 .. Now with added dangly bits!!

I am, of course, very grateful for anybody that carries news about Krakli plugs but I did have to chuckle at the copy carried by a certain vst site. It looks as if they were taking the feed from KvR but I can only imagine that it has been passed into a foreign language first and then back into english:

The KVR copy:

The bottom area of RMP2 allows for independent arpeggiation of each synth section and you can apply a fully variable key split enabling Chords and solo parts to be played at the same time.

The ‘Other sites’ copy:

The basal breadth of RMP2 allows for absolute arpeggiation of anniversary synth breadth and you can administer a absolutely capricious key breach enabling Chords and abandoned genitalia to be played at the aforementioned time.

I have heard people saying that certain synths have a ballsy sound but this is obviously proof of that in action!!

one, two, fl3a … Go!

Mouxbar posted a link to some of his music  and one track caught my eye, Called 110 fleas. take a listen to it by visiting mouxbar’s page. I enjoyed the track and I hope you do too.

Fl3a is largely overlooked now but I still feel that FM synthesis can provide some of the best bass sounds..

RMP2 Details

 RMP2-S3O

RMP2 is now available via the Donate button in the area at the top right of the web page..

RMP2 is a multi-timbral synth consisting of two distinct sections: one using the hybrid FM/Physical Modelling techniques from The Richman series, the other section using the Multi-Oscillators from the S series synth.

RMP2 comes complete with 384 patches contributed from Himalaya and Dimitri Schkoda.

The vast number of presets mean that you can use RMP2 as a preset machine if you are daunted by its un-conventional controls (hey, it is a Krakli Synth!) but you may be suprised at just how easy it is to create new and interesting sounds.

The bottom area of RMP2 allows for independent arpeggiation of each synth section and you can apply a fully variable key split enabling Chords and solo parts to be played at the same time. Features like this mean that RMP2 can be used as a rewarding live players instrument.

Himalaya has prepared a terrific audio demo which demonstrates some of the Sonic potential of RMP2:

Himalaya’s terrific RMP2 Audio Demo

Please consider that all the sounds that you hear on the demo were created with a single instance of RMP2 played in real-time..

To further encourage you to donate the zip file also contains S3O. this is best described as a power-organ emulator, not especially designed to deliver Hammond Organ tones, S3O will also deliver thundering church organs and Cheesy transistor sounds. S3O is a reworking of  a plugin previously only available in Computer Music magazine. This version, however, is much expanded and has a much greater tonal range.

If you do decide to donate to Krakli you will be taken to a web page where you can download the zip file containing RMP2, all of its patches as fxbs and the S3O organ plugin.

You are free to donate an amount of your own choosing, but please consider that donations of less than £5.00 can prove uneconomical to process via paypal.

RMP2.. an update

Posted in krakli on September 5, 2009 by krakli

This is getting dangerously close now! i have two banks of sounds from Dimitri and a further bank from himalaya. I have just a few very minor things to mop up and then this will be ready to go.

 

To whet your appetite here is a Video showcasing a demo from himalaya of his sounds: Truly great stuff and very much like the original RMP sounds..
