DESCRIPTION

Thanks to Grüm~pé for the demo track.
Thanks to Paule for numerous snapshot banks.

This upload adds even more snapshots.
Some additional features were added for sonic variety.

"When winter first begins to bite
and stones crack in the frosty night,
when pools are black and trees are bare,
'tis evil in the wild to fare."
~Bilbo's Song of Winter

Greysky is a subtractive synth ensemble comprised of ten new Blocks. Although it is easy to use, it is sonically versatile, and packs a punch. No crazy buffer shuffler grain effects or chaos sequencers in this one. Instead, it uses a blend of distortion, filtering, and delay to achieve its sound.

Over four hundred snapshots are provided, including synth patches, sound effects, and drones.

Blocks include a LFO, a dual oscillator, a ring modulator, a VCA / Mixer, a reverb, two filters, a wave folder, a 4 tap delay, and a basic feedback delay.

I hope you enjoy this compilation, feel free to leave any feedback or suggestions you have.

This instrument is epic. It should be included as part of the Reaktor basic instruments to show what blocks can do. Greysky is the synth with soul. The visual aesthetics of UI is outstanding, it completely fits together with instrument's sound. The core of its sound is the DUAL OSC which instantly brings really fat and tight oscillator sound. The sound can be further modified by shapers, filters and modulators, so it's possible to get very interesting variations in timbre colour. I especially like using LPF with bit of HPF together. I use Greysky with other instrumenst in Reason DAW and it always perfectly sits in the overall mix. I use this instrument mainly for basses, mid leads, high leads and arp sounds. The delay and reverb adds final touch to the sounds. The reverb sounds very nice - it's smooth and lush. Thank you for this instrument, Brett.

I'm getting the distinct flavour of Boards of Canada with this synth. Good job!

Thanks for checking it out everyone. The extra button and math modules are for the mod wheel vibrato effect. The color chooser has a weird range (1..16) please don't use it to modulate anything. It's just for visual effect.

D Vyd, adjust the color in the top right corner and the output level get the same.

Brett, thank you for this ensemble and for the wonderful presets! Can you explain what the "COLOR" and "Button" outputs on the Note-In block do? I don't see them on the standard NI block. And what is the purpose of the three little arithmetic blocks in the structure view?
