At first we started working on a fun refill based on a Stylophone we recorded for sampling purposes. So we started sampling this little toy note-by-note. Besides programming a patch that matches the real thing, we also tweaked the NNXT to go some extra steps. Some fat funky clavinet-style patches caught us by surprise. While producing a first mini track (apart from the loop it's entirely based on stylophone samples) we added some extra cool stuff to this refill: a "single-sample-rhodes", a "single-sample-piano", a "single-sample-kalimba" and some other nifty stuff. Simple Sampling — the name speaks for itself! "Simple Sampling" contents:
- 25 combinator patches mainly based on Stylophone samples, a Rhodes-like patch that really feels great while playing the keys, mouth-watering atmospheric content, and some retro-oriented surprises.
- A note by note (a2 - e4) sampled and looped Stylophone including it??s typical release click
- "Simple Samples" coming from the Rhodes Mark 1, Doepfer MS404, a mini kalimba, a piano, a bassoon
- 10 Rex loops
