MANDOLIN TEXTURES is a Kontakt instrument created using the sound of an acoustic mandolin.
On some patches the sound is heavily manipulated, giving birth to unexpected sonic creations.
Please note: FULL retail version of Kontakt 6.6.1 or later required. NOT for Kontakt Player.
This instrument does not represent a sampled mandolin with all articulations. This is an inspiring tool which is based on a mandolin source, and is highly inspiring and musical.
The first two patches are standard muted mandolin sounds, which we like a lot and find highly flexible and natural.
The Muted Mandolin patch is sampled in 4 velocity layers and 3 round robins. Other patches are various textures, pads and ambient sounds.
Mandolin is sampled with a Royer SF 12 stereo microphone in combination with an original Neve 1073 stereo pair of preamps OR occasionally Millenia HV-3C.
