This is the sound of my Prophet 12 Module,
and this is my first ever attempt at a Kontakt instrument.
The project started roughly a week ago when Angus Roberts-Carey
posted the first official Pianobook Template.
With virtually no knowledge of Kontakt building,
I began using a combination of Angus’s template,
copy/paste and YouTube to see what I could come up with.
I didn’t want to get too deep for my first ever submission
but with a little assistance from Angus, I was able to cobble this together.
2 Instruments, Each with 3 patches that can
be played individually or in any combination using volume controls.
Each instrument includes replika tape delay with rate control knob
and a plate reverb.
The instrument was built in Kontakt 6 and
I have also provided raw samples for anyone
that wants to convertimprove this thing.

muy bueno! simplemente efectivo, me encanta, es muy didactico
This is one of the first patches i reach for if i want an analog bell sound. I dont love the B patch but i absolutely love the A patch. It reminds me of tycho who is one of my favorite artists and unlike the gentle sine bells patch in logics alchemy which is my other favorite bell patch, this one feels more analog and has some kind of modulation going on. Its a great sound and i have already used it on a song and will continue to use it. The GUI is also really nice and inspiring.
Dreamy analog feels!
Oh my god I freaking love this, especially the A patch! There are two patches included that offer a different sound. The only thing that bothers me, maybe more than it should, is that on the A patch the higher ranges are panned to the left instead of the right or center. Other than that, this is wonderful!
The release times of each A,B & C Synth within the two included patches could be made the same. This way switching between them or fading them in through automation will keep it feeling like one instrument with 3 distinct layers as opposed to three synths fighting over one GUI. For a first time Kotankt samplist, this is completely forgiven as the User can easily change this within Kontakt. The sound is super clean and has been sampled very well. I found a wonderful combination of B&C synths in patch A, this lead me straight to jamming out to Tears For Fears' 'Listen'. Patch B contains the same release issue as the A patch but once you tweak and save it, it's just as good. Really nice work!
Attack, versatility and the element of surprise
I’m always on the lookout for great-sounding lead synth sounds. I have plenty of great pad sounds to choose from but lead sounds that cut through with sufficient attack and that don’t sound purely retro are harder to come by. The range of available effects delay and reverb on this instrument makes it consummately adaptable – and therefore versatile. I had great fun making a demo to feature this sound and I hope you enjoy finding uses for it, too. Good GUI, apart from the slightly fiddly circular Kontakt knobs. Thank you, Matthew – or should I say thank you, Bob…?
