A synthesizer that is specialized in creating realistic bell, percussion and interesting bass sounds
Atmo-Bell is a synthesizer for percussive sounds. It can create very realistic bell and percussion sounds as well as interesting bass sounds. It uses 2-operator FM sythesis with an amplitude-controlled low-pass filter and optional LFO and reverb. Especially without reverb it will be very low on the CPU.
As the synth has rather few controls you can quickly learn how to modify its sounds.
Please note that this synth was optimized for bell, metal, and wood percussion sounds. Therefore some controls were combined to allow quick edits of these sounds (e.g. only one value for release and decay). While this constricts somehow the sonic versatility of this synth, I think that this may occasionally be more useful than a CPU-heavy all-in-one ensemble with lots of parameters.
v1.1: Now starts in panel-view in Reaktor plug-in, too.
v1.2: Added some presets and the demo song. The demo was recorded with three instances of Atmo-Bell without any additional effects.
