Groovy Tunes 2 For Kontakt   2 comments

Groovy ChildOriginal Hardware

Here’s version 2 of the acclaimed Groovy Tunes instrument for Kontakt. The original hardware Groovy Tunes (GT) is the secret weapon of many top artists (which ones is a secret too). Here I did my best to capture the power of this awesome machine. I wanted to really represent it’s essence, so I decided to record it with a microphone (also it doesn’t have a line-out), so that means there might be some key and/or surrounding noises, which are essential for realism. All eight glorious instruments were chromatically sampled and looped where applicable and release times matched. Some additional effects were added to help you sound like your favorite artist. Solve the age-old mystery: Are Bell and Music Box the same sound? There is also a helpful map of the percussion layout on the second panel. A spiral bound version is available upon request.

What’s new in version 2.1

-Beats can now be played (C1-G1) together with the ‘normal’ instruments. GT now has all the workstation capabilities of the original.

What’s new in version 2:

-All instruments were combined into one NKI with a menu to select between sounds. Make sure you have at least 48MB of RAM!

-Amp envelope, chorus, delay and reverb effects added. Disabling the envelope engages each instrument’s individual envelope, which matches the hardware’s performance.

-Skin that faithfully recreates the original’s look. You’ll feel like you’re playing the real thing!

-The word ‘Is’ was added to all effect buttons for clarity.

-Percussion and sound effect pads mapping chart. You won’t spend endless nights programming your beats anymore!

-Samples are now losslessly compressed and about 20MB were gained. You’re welcome.
