Cloud Atlas 1.0 beta
Grain Cloud Synth
Cloud Atlas 1.0 beta is a new granular synthesis ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor (Full Version). At the core we find two independant grain cloud synths with a distinguished wavetable each. Additionally two waveform oscillators can be mixed to the granulated samples to add basic tonality and richness. The signal path is shaped by a 4-pole filter (LP, BP, HP), an ADSR-envelope and can be modulated by LFO. The LFO also can be routed to the waveform oscillators and the final amping stage. After the synthesis a phaser/flanger module can be added to the sound. Finally a stereo delay and a reverb can be mixed to the sound.
The resulting sounds are unique and are especially very useful to create strange soundscapes and moving pad atmospheres. But also percussive and lead sounds are at hand. Due to the grain synthesis every key hit sounds a bit different and enriches the timbre of each preset.
Cloud Atlas 1.0 beta is still in the development stage, but for testing and first creative results it is released as a beta to the clement public.
