Acoustic Samples: Clavi D9


The Clavi D9 is based on the well known clavinet D6 by hohner.
It is probably one of the most "funky" instruments ever invented, despite the fact that it was originally intended for classical music as its sound is close to the hapsichord. It turns out that it was very well suited to replace or double a rhythmic guitar and was used in many Funk and Disco hits.
The clavinet has 5 octaves (60 keys) and works in a simple way, when you press a note, the string is pressed against a bridge just like a hammer-on on a guitar, the non muted part of the string vibrates and the pickups amplify the sound.
The D6 has very few controls, 4 eq switches and 2 pickup switches to choose which pickup has to be used plus a global volume.
We recorded both pickups and we modeled precisely the eqs, as a result you can use the whites switches exactly like on the real instrument.
We sampled every possible aspect of the instrument, normal notes, staccatos, releases, mutes, every pickup, sympathetic resonances and more to give you the most authentic Clavinet sound possible.

Korg: Mono/Poly for Reason


Korg’s classic Mono/Poly for Propellerhead’s Rack Extension plugin format

Mono/Poly for Reason uses Korg's proprietary CMT (Component Modeling Technology) to precisely model the electronic circuitry of the original analog instrument, capturing the exact sound and parameter response of the original. Originally introduced as part of Korg’ s Legacy Collection, Mono/Poly can now be integrated into Reason as a Rack Extension.

In addition to accurately reproducing the sounds from the original, Mono/Poly for Reason also provides a vast range of new functionality for contemporary sound creation, such as 128-voice polyphony (maximum), up to 16-voice unison settings with spread, virtual patching, and freely assignable external modulation settings. The updated functionality makes the Mono/Poly a powerful tool for modern music production.

The Mono/Poly - 4VCO monophonic / polyphonic analog synthesizer was originally introduced in 1981. It launched simultaneously with the Korg Polysix, and due to their superb functionality, powerful feature sets and affordable prices; they were immediately successful – and extremely unique – entries into the synth world.

The Mono/Poly for Reason interface provides reorganized knobs and switches that resurrect the original Mono/Poly in a contemporary "rack-mounted" format for intuitive integration into the Reason environment.

Mono/Poly for Reason will be available for download at Propellerhead’s web-shop:

Price: 49 USD/ 39 EURO.
