Plucked and hammered strings

 

Product Overview

The Chordophones is library of plucked and hammered strings. It focuses on capturing the atmosphere and sustain of steel strings when resonated. This library features 6 layers of sound and is capable of producing anything from dulcimer to lyre-like tones. The plucky sound is also excellent at making hybrid-organic rhythms and arpeggiations. Key Features 9 nki presets 3 or 4 round robin on up to 2 velocity layers 28 Custom IRs Features the FrozenPlain Effects Engine v2.0: arpeggiator, reverb, atomise, echo & more 6 layers of sound to mix in and for unique sound design Built in arpeggiator Great sound design tool (pads/ ambiances) Details The Chordophones is built using the combined sounds of the retired FrozenPlain products "Ancient Chordophone" and "Hammered Chordophone". The new and vastly more powerful engine breathes new life into the samples. The Chordophones is a library of steel string sounds that can be blended and morphed in interesting ways to make anything from something resembling a dulcimer to something guitar-like or even organic sustains and pads. The volume, pan and tuning of the 6 layers can be chosen using the mixer. First we have the hammered strings sound, this is a multi-sampled sound made from hitting steel strings with pencils. Its tone is bouncy and rich, similar to a dulcimer. The next 4 layers are multi-sampled plucked string sounds. They're made from recording steel strings in unusual setups, for example a very short length string. The last layer is a morphed sound made by stretching and editing a plucked string sample to last infinitely. Overall, the Chordophones has an emotive, old sound to it. Sometimes even sounding quite "medieval". Using the powerful interface you can adapt the sound to fit your needs. For example, you can use the Strum effect to turn chords into strums. Or the Atomise and Scatter effects to granulate the sound and create string sounding textures and pads. Please scroll down to see screenshots of the user interface and to watch the video demo. 13 Effects The second page of The Chordophones is the FrozenPlain Effects Engine v2.0, this is features 13 effects such as: reverb, delay, arpeggiator, sequencer, chorus, filters and more.
