Dark Intervals – Mandolin Textures (KONTAKT)

If you’re in search of an instrument that goes beyond traditional sampled mandolin sounds, you’re in for a treat. This unique instrument is not your average mandolin library—it’s a wellspring of inspiration derived from the essence of the mandolin, delivering a highly musical and creative experience.

A World of Musical Possibilities

This instrument breaks free from the confines of standard mandolin sampling to offer something truly exceptional. While it doesn’t aim to replicate every nuance of the mandolin with multiple articulations, it shines in its ability to spark creativity.

Muted Mandolin Magic

The first two patches of this instrument present you with standard muted mandolin tones. These patches are cherished for their flexibility and natural feel. The Muted Mandolin patch is meticulously sampled in four velocity layers and enriched with three round-robin variations for a dynamic and expressive playing experience.

Beyond the Mundane

But that’s not all. This instrument is a treasure trove of sonic textures, pads, and ambient sounds. It goes beyond the traditional mandolin realm, offering a palette of sounds to infuse your music with depth and character.

Capturing the Essence of Sound

To ensure the utmost quality, the mandolin was expertly captured using a Royer SF 12 stereo microphone. It was paired with an original Neve 1073 stereo preamp, occasionally complemented by the Millenia HV-3C preamp. This meticulous approach to recording guarantees the authentic essence of the mandolin’s timbre.

A User-Friendly Interface

Navigating this instrument is a breeze, thanks to its intuitive interface. Divided into three pages, it provides control over various parameters. The first page displays the waveform, while the second offers envelope and filter adjustments. On the third page, you’ll find parameters for delay and reverb, as well as stereo spread and pan adjustments.
