I had an old crumar jazzman in 2003/4 – a very poor mans transistor Rhodes type piano, my Jazzman was broken, I didn’t know how to fix it so I sold it for spares…. before I did that I sampled it, or at least I sampled the notes that were working! This year, I built this Kontakt instrument & then thought I’d add some processed layers so you get the Jazzman in all its glory, a shimmer, fuzz, moog trem and oscillating delay. I also added a time stretched ‘long’ and sub bass, because who doesn’t love sub bass?
I don’t have a picture of it that i own or have permission to use, so I drew it!
Many thanks, James
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
An impressive range of sounds
I particularly enjoyed using the processed layer James has called ‘Up’, which proved ideal for a scintillating/glistening melody line, but I also made use of the ‘Jazzman’ patch, Warp, Tannhauser, Long and Cheap Shimmer on the demo I recorded, exclusively using the Jazzman instrument. I don’t know about the sub bass – somehow I didn’t stumble on that patch – but I already had more than enough variation for one project, and plenty of potential left over to encourage me to return to this one in the future. Thank you, James.
