**Unleash the Expressive Power of Sine Waves with ‘Sinewaves Vol. 1’**

Embark on a sonic journey with ‘Sinewaves Vol. 1,’ a Kontakt library that explores the untapped potential of sine waves as fundamental building blocks of sound. This unique collection of instruments transcends the limitations of traditional synthesis, harnessing the raw power of sine waves to create a diverse range of expressive and captivating sounds.

**Exploring the Sonic Frontiers of Sine Waves**

Through meticulous experimentation, numerous sine waves were recorded in various rooms throughout Julian’s home, utilizing an AKG C1000 microphone. These sine waves served as the foundation for crafting the instruments, further manipulated with guitar pedals, a Yamaha SPX 90, and the powerful effects section of Kontakt.

**A Diverse Collection of 15 Instruments**

‘Sinewaves Vol. 1’ offers a diverse array of 15 instruments, each carefully crafted from sine waves and transformed into distinctive sonic voices:

* **Accordion Sine:** Experience the rich, expressive tones of an accordion, brought to life through modulated sine waves.

* **AggresSub:** Unleash the raw power of a sub-bass instrument, crafted from distorted sine waves for electrifying low-end presence.

* **Bells Sine:** Immerse yourself in the delicate tinkling of bells, created with modulated sine waves for a shimmering, ethereal effect.

* **Flute Sine:** Capture the gentle, breathy sounds of a flute, emulated using subtly modulated sine waves.

* **Lo-Fi Synth:** Embrace the nostalgic charm of lo-fi synths, achieved by modulating and altering the sample rate of sine waves.

* **Mellotron Flutes:** Relive the classic sounds of Mellotron flutes, simulated using sine waves and enhanced with ambience.

* **Mouse Chords:** Add a touch of playfulness with mouse chords, generated from sine waves and shaped with a low-pass filter.

* **Short & Lush:** Indulge in lush, spacious pads, crafted from sine waves and enhanced with diffused reverb.

* **Piano Sine:** Explore the pure, expressive tones of a piano, recreated using sine waves and refined with reverb.

* **Piano Octave:** Elevate your melodies with an extended high-octave piano, emulated using sine waves and infused with ambience.

* **Supersub:** Experience the earth-shaking rumble of a supersub, engineered from sine waves and controlled by a low-pass filter.

* **Vintage Piano:** Relive the timeless sound of a vintage piano, meticulously simulated using sine waves and enhanced with modulation.

* **Wood Vibro Synth:** Embrace the warmth and character of a wood vibro synth, recreated using sine waves and infused with ambience.

Each instrument in ‘Sinewaves Vol. 1’ features dedicated controls for further sonic manipulation, allowing you to tailor the sound to your specific needs. Explore the possibilities of adding delay, reverb, distortion, modulation, and other effects to shape the sine waves into your desired sonic palette.

**Compatible with Kontakt 6.6.0**

  • These are the tones you're looking for

    I've been working on a lofi album and these sounds are right up my alley.
    They're the perfect blend of analogue and digital, and the presets are varied and inspiring all the same.
    The UI while beautiful, provides no functionality. I would have liked to see some creative tools there (ADSR, envelope shaping etc.), however these types of samples are great for experimenting outside of the sampler.

    I'll surely be using this on my project. Thanks.

  • A nice synth library

    A beautiful collection of 15 different instrument patches that sound completely different from each other, while retaining the synthetic sound signature of a sinewave. You don't really have any options presented, but 15 instruments are already a great deal of options. If you liked those, be sure to check the Vol.2 for another 15!

  • A Nice collection of synth sounds

    This library seems to function kind of like a collection of synth presets, providing synthesized mimics of various instruments such as accordion, bells, etc. There is an effects-level bound to the modwheel, which varies depending on the preset (for example, distortion on one instrument, phaser+chorus sounding kind of like a reverb on another). Another cool thing is that most of the sound modulation from a basic sine wave to the finished sound appears to have been done in-Kontakt (ie. the raw sample wav is just a sine wave), so you can reverse-engineer the sounds / effects chain to get an idea of how the specific sounds are generated.

    Many of the sounds would be great for retro gaming tunes. I got the nostalgic feeling of trying all the presets on a new (old) synth, which was also fun!

  • Synths galore

    This pack, along with vol2 and vol3, make a great collection of synth sounds, all stemming from a sine wave, from rumbling basses to bleeps and bloops and everything inbetween.

    The mod-wheel control is a sensible addition, varying the dominating sound for each of the patches.
