Distinctive Sound Design
This instrument is a true testament to our dedication to give our users the most unique and special instruments, so you could stand out and get a unique sound for your productions.
The Floppytron was inspired by YouTube videos featuring floppy drives playing classic tunes from movies and video games. This basic yet complicated concept lead us to create an instrument unlike anything else we’ve ever seen before, including some features that are guaranteed to upgrade your productions, and spark your creativity.
Our team has a custom built and programmed the circuit that converts midi information from a keyboard controller to the necessary information for the floppy drive to play a musical note. This circuit was based on an Arduino Uno and was coded specifically for this project.
The drive was carefully sampled using state of the art equipment, using acoustic techniques to give the instrument a bigger, fuller sound. After which we implemented the samples onto our signature custom Kontakt engine, and added some exclusive features to compliment the floppy drive sound, resulting in a one of a kind instrument that will definitely keep your creativity flowing.
This exclusive feature lets you sync the floppy engine cycles to your host’s tempo. This gives the instrument a such an amazing rhythmic effect, you won’t want to turn it off!
Floppytron features the same signature Effects Morpher as our other libraries. This brilliant section lets you create complex sounds and modulations which otherwise won’t be possible in any other way.
Almost every parameter and knob value can be stored in a keyswitch. This lets you enjoy 7 states of your instrument that can be as subtle or as dramatically different from one another. Further enhancing this amazing instrument capabilities.
