nord-fairlight

Nord has announced a major addition to the Nord Sample Library, the sounds of the legendary Fairlight digital sampler.

The Fairlight was the first commercially available polyphonic sampler when launched back in 1979 and it opened up the doors of sampling to many artists and producer during the 80′s.

The 300+ sounds in this collection were all sampled from a newly overhauled Fairlight CMI System IIx, with detailed mapping to capture the characteristic Fairlight sound. The Nord Sample Library is compatible with the Nord Wave, Nord Electro 3/4, Nord Piano 2 and Nord Stage 2.

‘UncertainMusicCorps’ explores the synthesis capabilities of the Nord Drum 2.

First serious session with Nord Drum 2. Using Vermona fourMulator quad LFO to trigger 4 channels with Stoichea picking up the remaining 2. Using S/H waveforms from the Vermona via attenuators (matrix mixer) for timbral variation on the Nord Drum.

Bent melodic drone comes courtesy of Braids with rhythmic wavetable modulation.

NAMM 2014: Nord Lead A1 – First look New VA on behind closed doors

About the synth:

Producing stand-out sounds for live or for the studio, the Lead A1 is ideal for all musical genres. Thanks to its carefully thought-out user interface, the Lead A1 encourages experimentation, allows for far speedier programming than would otherwise be possible, and ultimately delivers sensational sonic results. At the heart of the Lead A1 is our new analog modeling engine. Taking our virtual analog synthesis to a new level, this modeling recreates a total analog signal path with uncanny realism, and is capable of immense sonic variety. With 24-voice polyphony and four simultaneous synthesizer parts, the Lead A1 is a true synthesizer powerhouse that goes far beyond the current trend for limited capability analog reissues. Fundamental to the design of the Lead A1 is a brand new simple yet sophisticated front panel interface. The design is in fact the result of requests from professional players – even the most experienced programmers – who need to create the perfect sound as quickly as possible for today’s live or studio time demands. The Lead A1 allows easy patch creation and experimentation thanks to a new and unique oscillator section, pre-programmed modulation matrix, and simplified ADR envelopes. Dive in and create incredible patches far quicker than would normally be possible with a synthesizer of such power.

Oscillators

  • Unique Oscillator concept
  • 8 Oscillator Configurations
  • Pitch, Detune, Shape, Sync, AM, Noise, Dual Osc, FM
  • Traditional Analog and Digital Waveforms

Modulation

  • LFO with 5 waveforms
  • Mod Envelope
  • LFO as additional ModEnv

Filter

  • 12, 24 dB low-pass filters
  • High-pass and Band-pass filters
  • Transistor and diode ladder filter simulations

“Spaces in Places” Yamaha MU80 (Percussion) + Nord Lead 1

October 22, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here’s a simple 8 bar vamp with elaborate percussion I composed on Finale. Nord Lead begins playing at (0:40).
“I created controller patches for the Nord and MU80 on the Nord Modular G1. There are no Nord Modular sounds in this, although it was used as the main controller. Whoever messes around with their portamento settings on their MU80? Easily when the midi CCs are mapped to a controller. Also switched in and out of ‘modulated delay’ preset on the Lexicon MX300. I didn’t want the delay on during the complex drumfills.”

Yamaha Mu80:

Compact in size, but underneath packing a massive xg punch, with 8mb of stunning wave samples, and 64 note polyphony with 2 independent midi inputs, this is the connoisseurs choice in XG devices. With the same simple but powerful user interface as it’s baby brother, the MU50, but with the added bonus of also acting as an analogue effects processor for vocals/guitar/saxophone or anything else you need to process, this is the ultimate in XG.
