WaveSkimmer Details

Front Panel

Kontakt screen to set the pulser
  • An editable pulse/velocity grid that can go from 1 to 32 steps and from 64th notes to
    whole note duration.


  • An editable pitch grid that covers a 2 octave range, which can also be set from 64th notes to whole note duration.

  • The pulse and pitch grids can be set independently of each other
    (grab and drag via the mouse).

The instrument can load 2 separate sounds and via Group A and Group B assignments you can alter the blend using the slider. Group B can be pitched down an octave.

An X-Y pad connected to a Transient Master allows easy reshaping of the samples.

The mod wheel works on the sample start, so mod wheel on full plays the front/attack of the sample and mod wheel off plays from later in the sample. As a pattern is playing in the pulse/velocity grid you can vary the intensity by riding the mod wheel.


With the mod wheel you can scroll through the sample, changing the intensity and tone of the sound in a dynamic way.
