Remember Champ?

Long and winding modulations from guitar to a big dirty organ...

The story

Stereo guitar loop of the same note going into Memory Man 550 tt using its delay and modulation and then into my 1970s Fender Champ recorded with a 57.

I guess you could say this is a pad/synth/organ.

I recorded the Left and Right on separate takes while messing with the depth and rate on the MM. The long modulations on the lower notes never really get boring for me. It’s great for lovely big fat chords and drones. There’s loads of nice ways to process this sample so i didn’t add any compression or eq. I usually smash it to pieces and then add buckets of reverb.

  • Lovely Big Sound

    I pulled this into ReaSamplOmatic5000 in Reaper, set the start pitch to -64, and played with the attack, release, and note-offs, and I really like it. So much good stuff to play with. Obviously there's no UI, at least the way I'm using it.

  • A glorious sound, that could be much more!

    The overall sound of this instrument is very glorious and wholesome, but at the same time there are a few issues holding it back. On top of everything else mentioned by the other users, I can add that the pure sample files seem to have a weird panning issue, because they seem to start from the right before they spread to the left, and that is very prominent in the mid to lower ranges. I have to admit that the image here kind of creeps me out. Not sure exactly why...

  • Ethereal sound with some loading issues

    Logic says the files can't be located so i had to drag them in manually. I was able to play the instrument but I'm not sure if I'm missing anything in the way im doing it. The sound itself is pretty nice. Although it can get slightly piercing in the high end, it has a cool sci fi pulsing effect and the tone is generally pleasing. It also seems like the sample seems to favor the right side a bit. Overall this is a good sound that i think can be applied in a number of ways even with its limitations

  • Needs some work...

    The biggest problem with this library is the incorrect routing for the sample, which is hard to excuse in my book when there's only one sample to be routed. Once up and running the sound is okay, but it's not anything to write home about. Might I suggest rebuilding this library in Decent Sampler or even sforzando to increase accessibility and take advantage of the many processing resources that come with those other engines.

  • Programming Problems

    It seems the name of the single sample in this sample pack was changed before the sample pack was uploaded, so Sampler isn't able to find the sample. Dragging the sample into Sampler's mapping window seems to solve it. It's a lovely sound, although more care could probably be taken in programming the envelopes and perhaps making use the of the mod matrix. It's not a sound that you can do a lot with other than holding one or two notes, however. It's not something that could be used in a wide variety of musical contexts.
