RMP2 Details

Posted in krakli, music, vsti with tags , , , , , on September 8, 2009 by krakli


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.


How to get S3O and S3Ks

OK, I am going to try something new here. I have copies of S3O and S3K with a little fun sequencer attached available to all those that use the Donation button on the bottom right of the Krakli web pages.

Please note that you can donate as little or as much as you like and still be eligible for the plugins

Please be aware that S3O is largely the same as CMorg that was previously only available in Computer Music magazine but it does have a few new wrinkles, namely:

  • A choice of waveforms for the upper drawbar rank
  • A VCF with attack decay and sustain controls
  • The addition of a phazor (from the S3)

This version also increases the preset count to 64 so you have a selection of presets showing off the new features.

The S3Ks is identical sonically to S3K but has a step sequencer added at the bottom with a piano-roll step entry method and a series of sliders controlling velocity and gate-length. In all honesty most of today’s modern hosts have sequencers which will perform far better than this, but it is really intended as a bit of fun. Caution this version will overwrite your existing S3K but actually as it is identical with the sequencer turned off that is not too much of a problem.

Making certain plugs available by virtue of a donation is a new departure for me so please bear with me if it is not as slick a delivery method as I would like.

Another “S” around the corner..
