Are you ready for a dive? Warm analogue
strings, ambient textures, atmospheric pads, fat synth
sounds - this is Deepflight.
Deepflight is a Kontakt library based
on the best sounds of the legendary Roland D-50 synthesizer.
170 Kontakt patches (in 6 categories)
1.54 GB of 44kHz/24 bit stereo samples
• 12 midi controllable knobs for realtime tweaking and for midi automation of the most important synth parameters
• extensive editing techniques: multiple velocity layers, round-robin, alternate sample starts to achieve fat, lively and realistic analogue sounds
• exclusive IR sample
collection for the convolution reverb of Kontakt
please note: our Kontakt banks require the full retail
version of Kontakt 3.5 (or more recent
version), they are not compatible with the free Kontakt
Player. Deepflight is available in Reason
refill format as well.
The following simplified MIDI implementation
chart is designed as a quick reference guide that allows
you to identify at a glance which MIDI control change
(CC) messages are implemented by Deepflight in Kontakt.
attack time of the filter envelope
decay time of the filter envelope
release time of the filter envelope
filter envelope amount
resonance of the internal LP filter
release time of the amplitude envelope.
attack time of the amplitude envelope
cutoff frequency of the internal LP filter
decay time of the amplitude envelope
sustain level of the amplitude envelope
adjusts the amount of the insert FX (delay)
adjusts the send level of the send FX (reverb)
In addition, in most cases: modwheel
(CC 01) controls the filter modulations,
aftertouch adds vibrato effect.
Roland D-50 was released
in 1987. This synth was Roland's response to the extremely
popular Yamaha DX-7, however it sounded totally differently
and was much easier to use. Although it's a digital synth,
it still used real analogue filters,
which disappeared in the following D series. That's why
D-50 sounds so fat and beautiful. A real all-time favourite!;-)
