Volume 1 - Studio/Session Mix

As usual, great care was taken to produce a set of sounds much different then the factory collection. We take a good look at the factory sounds and "fill the gaps". Each of our upcoming Motif soundbanks will have this in mind as we create the collection. We have lot's more suprises for the Motif that will be released during 2004 so stay tuned.

With the Studio/Session mix, our goal was to create a soundbank that would be useful for musicians doing live gigs or studio sessions. There are plenty of keyboards, strings, guitars & basses, leads, brass, winds and other similar type sounds. They can be used in a wide range of styles including, Rock, Raggae, R&B, Dance and even Church Services. Attention to real time control details like mod wheel and aftertouch give each program a more realistic sound and will give you greater control and more expressive playing in your music.

The Motif has an excellent effect section which we used extensively. Check out the Wah-Clavinet patch on out first MP3 demo (Rasta beat). It's right out of an old Bob Marley record. The Rotary effect on some Guitar patches reminded us of that Beatles sound when they put George Harrisons guitar through a leslie speaker cabinet. The effect section makes the electric guitar sounds in this collection some of the finest you will find anywhere on any instrument. A good example is the Rock guitar at the end of our third MP3 demo (Rock Session).

Many people have commented that the Motif Acoustic pianos are weak and would like more piano sounds. What we have done is to "layer" the Motif acoustic piano sound with other samples (Strings, Choirs, Pads, Horns ect). The layering of the two sounds make the piano sound better since it is not as "exposed" as it would be by itself. The effect is very useful for Studio/Session work.

There are no rhythmic patterns using the Motif arpeggiators. We have purposely stayed away from that kind of sound since those sounds will be found in great numbers in our upcoming Motif soundbanks.

Check out our MP3 demo for a taste of what is on Studio/Session Mix.
