“A condensed version of my final Undergraduate Degree Project, Ethanolia is the sounds captured from ‘singing’ and bowing of Gin Bowls, Wine Glasses and Champagne Flutes. I sampled this using three mic set-up, a Neumann U87, DPA 4036 and a KM187, which I then processed through an amazing Eventide Eclipse (V4) Harmonzier using settings such as ‘Rainbow Drops’ and ‘Diamond Rain’ which added random pitch and rhythmic effects.
I was able to create 4 different instruments from these sounds, two of which I am submitting to PianoBook: A general Pad and legato Lead.
The mod wheel (CC1) can be used to crossfade between sample layers on both instruments. The Lead is currently set in Legato mode however feel free to change this setting in EXS24 should you wish to use multiple voices.”

Led To A Very Ambient Place
Playing around with the pad and lead sounds in this library led me to make a very ambient piece. I really enjoyed using the mod wheel to crossfade between the samples, so I made a demo to show this off by using a series of long evolving repeated figures that go right through the samples layers and back again as the piece progresses.
I found the patches to be a little quiet, so had to boost the volume in ESX a bit.
Great sound but would definitely love a kontakt version of the instrument. Thanks again for such a beautiful sounding vst.
