Soundiron Clavi Twin '78
Clavinet Virtual Instrument for Kontakt Full
Clavi Twin '78 captures the heart & soul of a vintage run-down Hohner Clavinet Pianet Duo, complete with scuffs, stains, and over 40 years of hard use and abuse.
This unique combo allowed keyboardists to blend the two instruments, or use the Pianet as a bass in the left hand while playing Clavi in the right.
Since both sets of strings lived inside the enclosure, this funkmaster was heavy (over 75 lbs)!
The Clavinet was designed in 1961 by German engineer Ernst Zacharias - he loved listening to Bach harpsichord music and created an amplified version for Hohner.
Music legends like Stevie Wonder made the Clavinet an icon, embracing the electric guitar-like tones while running it through distortion, tape echo, and phaser pedals.
We sampled all 60 keys with 4 velocity layers and 4 round robin per note, then recorded key up and down SFX so you can dial in the release volume and amount of key attack click.
After that, we expanded these classic timbres with 20 ambient soundscapes and 20 custom FX presets to jumpstart your "Superstition" inspiration.
Clavi Twin '78 fits happily in any genre from psychedelic rock to experimental classical, and it guarantees your next cue to be deliciously funky.
The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility.
You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more.
We've also included 20 unique sound-designed custom FX presets to give you lots of creative options.
This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing, and fade-in time.
You can also apply your choice of 12 low-pass, high-pass, and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, mod wheel, expression, after-touch, key position, and step-sequencer table control.
Our customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization, and duration.
We've included a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.
The interface is rounded out by our modular FX rack panel, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 available slots, in any order that you wish.
You'll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more.
The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers, and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility.
We've added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
This library is designed for the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.5 or later. Kontakt is an industry-standard advanced virtual instrument software platform.
You can view screenshots of this library's custom graphical user interface in the image gallery above.
This library is packed with features to provide you with a wide range of sound shaping parameter controls, each one totally automation-ready in your host environment or Kontakt's stand-alone mode.
This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player does not fully support it and can only run it in a limited "demo mode".
However, the sample directories are unlocked so you can use them in other wav-compatible software, sampler, and synth formats.
The special Libraries tab doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library, but you can use the standard File browser tab and import this library into the Kontakt Quickload window for easy loading and navigation.
