“Ultra-affordable pocket-money Kontakt instruments utilising samples from a range of classic and vintage hardware synths in a very straightforward common interface… the Grit Filter sounds fabulous.
The ‘intelligent’ controls cross-reference each other to operate a range of behind-the-scenes settings aimed at optimising the character of the sounds. There’s also a similarly intelligent ‘randomise’ button onboard.
At this price all the NanoMods are well worth your attention” – Computer Music magazine
“The potential of these NanoMods is amazing” – Harvey Jones, NYC producer and composer
Whether you want liquid lead sounds, mournful trumpet solos, or sizzling brass sections, Hot Brass is ready for you. It also excels at saxy pads and ‘boney basses.
Wave 1 is a rough, raucous synth brass sound closely based on the Yamaha patch manual “Brass” sound for the CS10, though we created it on a CS30 and added a second oscillator, a touch of modulation, and some pitch slop. Think of it as Brass Behaving Badly, and go to it for unconventional brass sounds, raw-edged stabs and leads, and full-on synth patches.
Wave 2 comes from the Korg Lambda’s Brass section, with gentle detuning and the Lambda’s wonderful “Chorus Phase” ensemble effect engaged. It has a mellow, smooth tone, rich depth and movement, and natural stereo spread. This is perfect for warm pads, darker toned synth patches and full ensemble brass sections.
Blending gets you everything in between: turn the dial left for grittier, right for smoother, or just hit Glitch and let the NanoMod do the work!
