- FX & Percussion
1.96 GB stereo multisamples (1840 wav files)
• 12 midi controllable knobs for realtime tweaking and for midi automation of the most important synth parameters
extensive editing techniques: multiple velocity layers,
alternate triggering and sample starts to achieve fat,
lively and vivid synth sounds
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. ORANGE is available in Reason

The name comes from the colour of the original synth:
the German Waldorf Microwave XTk
is a legend! There is nothing like its sound, and it has
inspired a lot of performers since its appearance in 1995.
Microwave XTk is a virtual analogue
instrument, which produces the sound by using the spectral
wavetable synthesis developed by Waldorf, and combines
it with 10 types of special "Waldorf" filters.

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 ORANGE 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.
