Mandolin Textures - Unexpected Sonic Creations for Kontakt

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.


  • There are three pages on the GUI. First page shows just waveform
  • Second page shows envelope and filter section (cut and resonance for LPF and HPF)
  • Third page shows delay and reverb parameters
  • On pages 2 and 3 , you can see stereo spread and pan adjustment section.
