DX-15 is a Kontakt 6 instrument that takes a 8gb of analog modular FM samples and wraps them up in a interface inspired by Yamaha's classic CS-15 mono synth. The CS-15 (Like it's big brother, the CS-80) excelled at making layered sounds due to it's dual channel architecture. DX-15 follows this layout very closely and is similarly flexible, the sound is entirely different however. Analog FM is known for it's wild and unpredictable nature and this is equally true of DX-15.
This instrument makes extensive use of Kontakt's AET morphing filter allowing for wide degree of tonal variety.
Two versions of the instrument are provided. DX-15v uses a smaller sample set (aprox. 2gb) and employs AET's velocity morphing. DX-15v sacrifices velocity modulation but gains more tonal flexibilty. DX-15a uses a larger set (7gb or so), uses AET's articulation morphing and has full velocity control of the amp and envelopes.
The instrument is still in beta while I iron out some of the bugs. I'm making it available now at lower price in the hope of getting some useful feedback.
Full documentation and more demos will be uploaded shortly!
Please note, this requires the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 6. The player version will not work.
