Samplephonics has introduced Dirty Modular, which ythey describe as a powerful hybrid modular virtual instrument powered by the Kontakt Free Player. Here's the details in their own words...
"Under the hood of this beast lies 8,496 pristine audio samples, direct from a real analogue modular synth. These form the bases of 170 multisampled oscillator settings ready to be combined, routed and processed further.
From the front end you are presented with a stunning GUI allowing you to create patches visually using the 3d rendered cables, as well as load and save internal presets at lightening speed and without reloading the main Kontakt instrument.
This stunning instrument is packed full of analogue modelled effects and powerful LFO's, envelopes and an analogue style step sequencer. It is able to create a huge range of sounds, from filthy basses and leads to retro 80's pop to deep melodic pads and everything in between.
We wanted to create something that put detailed raw sounds already at your fingertips, allowing deep and complex sounds to be built easily without fiddling, allowing you to concentrate on what is most important - the music!
The sounds were recorded in conjunction with Dom Morley from Metropolis Studios in London who we'd like to thank for his patience and hard work on this! We'd also like to give a big thanks to Phil from the Samplephonics team who has relentlessly scripted this incredible instrument and fine tuned it to perfection. It has been over a year and a half in the making, but boy has it been worth the wait!"
Pricing and Availability:
A modular synth from a sampler. I don't think so. You just cannot beat the real thing here and it is fun buying each module and building a system. Look at Analog Heaven and Noisbug for modules.
