Crypto Cipher



Crypto Cipher

Unique as it is in its novel approach, Crypto Cipher synchronizes rare sounds with the latest technology through an avant-garde project designed to benefit music composers. Our Kontakt-based sample instruments have been designed with the aid of unique, highly engineered techniques. Needless to say, modern music composers will find them extremely advantageous in creating background score for television/films and games without running through the conventional process.

  1. Tabla Tarang

    Ancient Indian Art

    “Tarang” means waves. Many hand made tabla drums are tuned separately by hitting the hammer on the rim of the tabla according to “Raga” and all tabla drums are placed in semicircular positions covering lower bass tabla from the left to higher pitched tabla towards the right. Each tabla has its own character and the melodies are produced by hitting hands on the centre of the tabla. Recreating this art was adventurous and fun. We teamed up with tabla artists and tabla makers and finally we sampled 13 tabla drums not with just the magical black ink spot sound but also the two other tuned sounds “Ta” and “Tin”, which are produced by hitting at the rim/chanti and middle portion/maidan of tabla drum. So we have three main tuned sounds “Ta” “Tin” and “Tun” mapped across the keyboard.
 Mixing all three sound make the instrument so special as never heard before. We recreated this instrument for Modern music composers and recorded almost 15,000 samples with three mic types (Ribbon , Dynamic , Condensor). Also with the powerful scripted technology we pushed the capability of the instrument to the next level. We have legato and drum articulation sections which will help composers to play the instrument in more advanced ways. Players can hit a maximum of two drums at a time producing one stroke from each hand at once (Human capability). Example: Artist cannot play “Ta and Tin” “Tin or Tun” at the same time on same drum but can hit Ta on one drum and Tin on other drum at same time. Same concept for other strokes. In other words 
Tabla Tarang players can produce only two notes harmony at max as again he has two hands and one hand produce one stroke at a time. So, most of the time the arrangement of these tablas are used as solo melodic tuned instruments. Its not necessary to play Tabla Tarang in authentic way, you can play the instrument in other ways you want. You can do sound design work with this variety of samples and create textures you never created before. This instrument can be layered with other sounds. You can try soft samples of tun articulation to create very emotional and heart touching melodies and on the other side you can have aggressive punchiness of “Ta” and “Tin” Sounds. You can use this instrument into your drum track to create fillers etc. There are many applications just play the instrument and see what inspires you. UI Controls....
