The Sound Of Plucking A Water Bottle


Here's the Puremagnetik press release...
Puremagnetik has released an expressive collection of instruments created by cross synthesizing various materials and resonanting bodies. What if you could pluck a water bottle? Or blow through a church bell as a flute? Brush a harp made out of steel guitar strings? This experimental collection of sounds was created with these concepts in mind.
Using a Symbolic Sound Kyma System, Puremagnetik developers analyzed a collection of resonating bodies as struck, plucked and banged with sticks, bricks, brushes and more. Employing Kyma's advanced spectral processing features, these six new hybrid instruments bring lifelike physical models of completely fictitious instruments right to your sampler. In addition, Onda comes packed with over 40 professionally performed Live Clips and SIAL Apple Loops.
All Onda instruments were created using the Harm Visser Kyma Physical Modeling Toolkit .
Onda for Ableton Live
Onda for Ableton Live includes all six multisampled instruments with advanced macro control mapping to fully augment and bend the original timbres. In combination with Ableton Sampler's sophisticated sound mangling capabilities, Onda for Live is a hugely expressive pack of instruments never heard before! Onda for Live includes over 40 Live Clips with integrated effects and instrument macro controls.
Onda for Kontakt 4
Puremagnetik developers have taken this collection even further with Kontakt's Authentic Expression Technology (AET). Onda for Kontakt is a single program that can seamlessly morph from one instrument to the other. Simply pick one of the six instruments as the spectral source and use the built in KSP panel to either Automorph and manually morph between sounds! Onda for Kontakt also comes with over 40 Apple Loops that can easily be dragged and dropped into the Kontakt interface.
Onda for Logic
Onda for Logic includes all six multisampled instruments with customized EXS parameter programming and easy to access channel strips. Over 40 included SIAL loops are convenient and ready-to-edit phrases that can be dragged right from your loop browser into Logic's timeline.
