Product Overview

A beautiful throb monster, a one of a kind modulation leviathan. Pulsational rapture is only ever a few mouse clicks away.

ODDular is a hybrid sample instrument based around 3 specially coded beat synced super LFOs, a complex but very simple to use modulation matrix and an innovative user interface.

ODDular borrows some of the more useful concepts of modular synthesis to create otherworldly and impossible sounds that are actually musically useful and don’t require a complex nest of cables to produce.

The sample engine is loaded with 1.5GB of multi samples from rare and sought after classic synths - EMS VCS3 Putney, Oberheim Xpander 6, Siel Orchestra and great sounding synth wildcards - Moog Dfam, Moog Voyager, Technics WSA1, Make Noise O-Coast and Nord Wave.

If you every dreamed of owning a polyphonic BPM syncable VCS3 (who wouldn't) or need to quickly create a complex rhythmic underscore for ‘John Carpenter meets the Berlin Minimalists’ ODDular is definitely for you.

FULL version of Kontakt 5.6.8 or above is required
ODDular will load into Kontakt Player but time out after 10 minutes, so please don't buy this unless you are using the full version of Kontakt 5.6.8

PORTABLE TAPE RECORDER

Reels is based on a vintage Japanese reel to reel, ironically marked as High Fidelity, found in a distressed state at a local flea market. Most of these consumer tape recorders, also due to their age, produce has a very rough Lo-Fi analog sound.

During recording or playback, the motor noise somehow bleeds in, along with the usual tape hiss, limiting the actual bandwidth available on the tape.

Reels recreates all the imperfection of consumer reel-to-reel vintage recorders, including:

  • Harshness, harmonic distortion with loss of clarity (mid-range)
  • WOW/Flutter, pitch instabilities due to recording and playback issues
  • Ducking, random volume loss due to tape or rec/play head imperfections
  • Crosstalk, the leak between left and right channel in a stereo signal
  • Hiss, high-frequency noise caused by the magnetic particles in the tape
  • Motor, mid-frequency noise caused by the reels motor

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Vintage Tape Emulation
  • Tape Stop Effect
  • Echo Section
  • 3 Tape types
  • Hiss and Motor noise with Envelope
  • 50 Presets
  • Resizable Window
  • Preset system with randomizer

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

  • Windows 7, 8, 10 (64 bit)
    Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon 64 X2, 4 GB RAM
    VST2, VST3, or AAX, 64-bit host
  • OS X 10.7 – macOS 10.14
    Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB RAM
    VST2, VST3, AU, or AAX, 64-bit host

TAPE MODELLING

We’ve modeled three different tape types, from ruined to NOS (new old stock) state.
The tape types are named after the country of origin: JP (Japan), IT (Italy), FR (France).

  • JP Used tape but with an overall better frequency response
  • IT New old stock but with a limited frequency response
  • FR Overused and badly stored, very bad frequency response

Each tape will affect the sound in different ways, especially at higher feedback settings when using the Echo section.

WOW/Flutter, Ducking, and other parameters will also change according to the selected tape, creating different amount of pitch and volume changes.

TAPE STOP

When pressing stop on a reel-to-reel player, the tape doesn’t stop immediately. Instead, it slows down creating a pitch down and fade out effect. You can replicate this effect with Reels, and you can also control the speed of the tape stop.
