Hardware and Software Sound Design CL-Projects is Frank Dierickx, a hobby musician & selfmade sound designer. In the early 80's, he got interested in electronic music after hearing music from Jean Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream and he wanted to play that kind of music himself. Saving up to buy his first synthesizers, drum machines and effects processors he recorded his own music, still on cassette tapes at that time. He actually never released any music but his music was aired several times on a late night Belgian electronic music radio show.
Till now he actually never stopped making music. All this with the help of hardware and software instruments and effects. CL-Projects saw the light in october 2012 with the idea to make sound libraries for the Native Instruments Kontakt sampler and patches for hardware and software synthesizers. He became interested in sampling because he wanted to use non-synth sounds like choirs in his compositions. Kontakt was ideal for this purpose. Since a few years he got interested in creating libraries himself, mainly libraries devoted to synthesizer sounds and his experience in programming synthesizers came in handy for creating these Kontakt libraries.
Because his first libraries were well received by friends, he decided to release his libraries to the public for a very economical price.
