Wavesfactory has announced the release of Typewriter, a free Kontakt sample instrument featuring a Royal vintage typewriter.
The typewriter was meticulously sampled at Calmaestudis recording studios using 4 mic positions: close stereo for a modern direct sound, close ribbon for a vintage full sound, mono condenser, and far stereo for a room sound. You can control the microphones (pan, width, volume, load/purge and separate outputs for each channel) from the Mixer page.
In the Effects section you can apply up to 8 different DSP effects including chorus, saturation, high-quality EQ and convolution reverb with more than 40 custom impulses.
From the Settings page, you can set the number of round robin repetitions, tweak the release volume, velocity curve and pre-shift or pre-roll of each sample individually.
Recorded with 3 velocity layers and 10 round robin, not only the keys but also paper noises and typewriter hits, rolls and much more. Separate note on and note off samples and one shots as well.
Typewriter works with Native Instruments Kontakt full version (Player version isn’t supported). In order to download the freebie, first, add it to cart, then fill in your details at checkout.
