Richard - programming sounds for Nord

Postby Blemished on Tue Sep 30, 2014 8:18 pm

Richard has programmed a set of sounds for Clavia Nord, makers of the ubiquitous little red synths you see used by many musicians (DS used the Nord Lead 3 extensively on Blemish). Specifically, he's programmed a sound bank for the Nord A1, Clavia's latest synth.

There's a news story about it here - with comments from Richard:

And the bank itself is available at the link below. It also has two 3 minute demos of the sounds. The first is heavier - more in the PT vein. The second - called Asia Major - is more in the vein of Japan. It has a lot of the signature arabic/indian lead sounds he uses, and towards the end is more in 'tin drum' territory with delicate percussive sounds.

Very interesting to hear these. The A1 is designed to be a relatively easy to use analogue-modelling synth and it sounds to me like Richard has tried to replicate a lot of his favourite Prophet-5 / OBX sounds.

And now Nord have named Richard as their artist of the month. He was using the Nord A1 in the recent IB Expo.
