DW8 I KONTAKT
FANTASTiC | May 18 2016 | 1.09 GB
DW8 I, the third release in the Carbon series of Kontakt 5 formatted vintage synthesizer instruments features 1.7GB of 24-bit samples from the Korg DW8000 organized into 32 NKI based presets. Great care was taken during the sampling and production processes to capture the unique qualities of this underrated hybrid synth. Released in 1985, the DW8000 uses digital sound generation followed by a true analog filter which produces a wonderfully glassy and sometimes Lo-Fi sound that is not quite like any other. Included here are long filter sweeps, rich pads, strings, leads and bell sounds, all of which the DW8000 excels at. Also present is a very nice marimba patch that has a separately controllable spring reverb layer which was recorded key-by-key from a vintage AKG unit the size of a small refrigerator.
