Our symphonic range consists of orchestral instruments like violins, flutes, French horns and other instruments, which we try to catch up from rather different perspectives, like playing with special and uncommon articulations, or sending through various modular effects and much more.

BODEGA STRINGS

Deep and Scratchy

Recently we recorded another nice set of very quiet and fragile violin notes. We have added a processed halftime layer to it and here and there we put a little bit of work into it. And now we have a noble string tool that is deep and scratchy at the same time.

JOHNNYS HORN

Elegant And Noble

5

Johnnys Horn - Johnny is the good soul of our little instrument-forge. Famous for his incredibly relaxed character and infamous for his ability to turn into a party animal in seconds. For this instrument Johnny gave us a performance of his favorite instrument: The Horn - Several Layers, a Full Sound and a special interval feature.

VIOLIN WAVES

Pedal Strings

5

Violin Waves - Violin Waves was created during a session, in which we were actually collecting musical material for a movie, by sending a violin through several guitar pedals and modular synthesizers. Afterwards , while getting through our material we stumbled upon these two sounds and thought, that we had to create an instrument out of it.

VOCODED FLUTE

Organic to Processed

5

Vocoded Violin - We love the liveliness and character of the Flute. The breathy and beautiful sound is often known in idyllic or romantic scenarios. But for this KLANG, we sent it through our Vocoder and were amazed, how characterful the fragile sound was turned into a synthesizer. Mix them both together and you get an extremely unique combination for any genre you like.

GAMBASTARD

Rude Bass Strings

5

Gambastard - This instrument fills up the lower area of our symphonic range. It consists of several low register string instruments, like Double Bass and Viola da Gamba, which were played with Mallets instead of typical bows. That creates this characteristic and deep sound in the lower octaves. In the Engine you are able to control.

RAISING STRINGS

Dynamic Vortex

5

Raising Strings - For this instrument we sent a Pizzicato Solo Violin and a hammered Viola da Gamba through various delay effects to create a rhythmic pattern which is tempo-synced. The other sound source is a digitally downtuned violin legato patch which was also sent through various modulating effects.

You can easily blend those two patches into each other, by controlling two of the three main controllers. The middle one changes the overall tone. Additionaly you have LoFi, Distortion, Delay and 9 different Reverb types.

HAMMERED VIOLIN

Charming Air

5

Hammered Violin - In our recording room we have a lot of xylophone mallets and old broken piano hammers lying around. Ege wanted to create a different type of violin sound, so he asked himself what it would sound like if he played his violin with a piano hammer or a xylophone mallet instead of the typical bow. So we ended up with a unique violin sound. Additionally we programmed a sequencer so that you can easily play rhythmic patterns in any way you like.

SKYLINE STRINGS

Vocoded Violins

5

Skyline Strings - We were actually writing a new song and recorded a solo violin. Then we wondered what it would sound like, if we sent this through a vocoder. Well, we did it and here is the result.

BLACK WOOD FLOW

Quiescent Reed

5

Our aim with this instrument was, to create a very soft, silent and gentle clarinet sound. We recorded it, and called it Black Wood Flow and put it into our Klang Engine. A very pure and flowing sound.
