During the Covid 19 pandemic we found ourselves wondering “what next” for MODWHEEL. We had just lost a film job with NZ closing down for a month and were casting about for something to do.
As it happened our long time friend and collaborator David Long was in a similar situation and we decided to work together on a new Kontakt sample library.
Over our shared 30 year history we’ve enjoyed his talent for creating all sorts of wild feedback using guitar and various microphones etc. So it was with a great deal of enthusiasm that we spent a few days in the studio recording what became the basis of FEEDBACK.
There are 27 patches in total featuring performances that vary in length from short explosive events to long evolving textures, each one, carefully curated to give the player control over how to shape their own performance.
The FX tab gives access to the filters, a rhythm Step-mod and Scatter Box.
The Filters are a High Pass, a single band Mid Freq and a Low Pass.
The Rhythm Step-mod works on volume and can be used to create effects ranging from a simple tremolo though to more complex rhythms.
All the FEEDBACK patches feature Scatter Box. Scatter Box is MODWHEEL’s new sync’d and experimental convolution IR effects rack which was developed from an original concept by
There are 5 sub sections
19 handcrafted IRs with some featuring pitched notes (named, Cmin, Cmaj etc)
40 handcrafted tempo sync'd convolution IRs which will sync to your DAW's tempo
15 handcrafted reversed, tempo sync’d convolution IRs
25 handcrafted atmospheric IRs. These are longer events created using feedback and lesley cabinets etc, which give the instruments more of a cinematic, atmospheric quality
24 handcrafted tonal IRs where each IR will sound the particular chord selected
It’s hard to explain quite what Scatter Box does and we don’t want to give too many secrets away. Just experiment with the different sections and you’ll soon get the hang of it.
