ghost dulcitone 1900

£30

Definitely the world's first convolution dulcitone....

An ancient and rare keyboard invigorated with nifty digital witchcraft.

51 instruments (.nki's)

3.26GB of 24bit multisamples

up to 14 velocity levels per note

for FULL version of Kontakt 5.5.1 or above.

This is a magical sounding impossible hybrid instrument that takes the rare and beautiful woody jingle of the dulcitone and transforms it into an extended dusty swoon that goes to infinity and beyond (although technically that's not really possible is it ?) 

If Tim Burton was a musical instrument he would make sounds like the Ghost Dulcitone 1900.

The starting point of Ghost Dulcitone 1900 is sister instrument the dULCITONE 1900² a 100 year old acoustic keyboard which is binaurally multisampled with 7 velocity layers. Then each sample is used as a convolution reverb impulse and 20 second bursts of Moog Voyager generated analogue white noise are blasted through it to create a whole new sample set of dusty, metallic bowed sounding, infinite duclitone-ness.

Here's what it takes to make a Ghost Dulcitone.....

The multisampled dulcitone : warm, tinkly and a little bit thumpy.

Has a special sample start control to dial in clunk levels.

Separate controls for pan, stereo width, attack and release, controls for formant filtering with LFO wobbling and another LFO for tremolo effects and on separate pages its own algorithmic reverb unit, distortion unit plus high and low pass filtering.

The roomy Nord : a multisampled nord modular electric piano style patch which is recorded binaurally using mics in a real room environment.

Adds 3d depth and body, has its own adjustable octave control.

Separate controls for pan, stereo width, attack and release, an LFO for tremolo effects and on separate pages its own algorithmic reverb unit, distortion unit plus high and low pass filtering.

The Dark Ghost : made from demonically convolved versions of the dulcitone. 7 velocity layers per note, each is a twenty seconds long, infinitely looped version of the original.

Separate controls for pan, stereo width, attack and release, controls for formant filtering with LFO wobbling and another LFO for tremolo effects and on separate pages its own algorithmic reverb unit, distortion unit plus high and low pass filtering.

The Reverse Ghost : an endless backwards version of the Dark Ghost.

Separate controls for pan, stereo width, attack and release, controls for formant filtering with LFO wobbling and another LFO for tremolo effects and on separate pages its own algorithmic reverb unit, distortion unit plus high and low pass filtering.

The Pale Ghost : another infinitely convolved dulcitone with14 layers of velocity but using the Time Machine engine of Kontakt these layers are stretched over the entire keyboard range (co to c7) which adds strange and unexpected artefacts to the sound.

Separate controls for pan, stereo width, attack and release, controls for formant filtering with LFO wobbling and another LFO for tremolo effects and on separate pages its own algorithmic reverb unit, distortion unit plus high and low pass filtering.

The release layer : is another roomy Nord and acts as an adjustable note off thump.

Has its own adjustable octave control and controls for sound selection, so that other voices can become the note off sound.
