Les Productions Zvon: Smallest Keyboard Obsidian Patch

Sound Designer Les Productions Zvon has released a free Obsidian patch based on samples from a tiny toy keyboard. The raw sound is as cheesy as you might expect, but it blossoms into a rich sound with the aid of NanoStudio 2's Obsidian synth-sampler.

Video Description:

Video of the Smallest Keyboard Obsidian patch for NanoStudio 2 by Les Productions Zvon.

Rozeta Rhythm MIDI plugin from Bram Bos is used to generate patterns.

This may be the smallest ever electronic keyboard. The 7 notes that it plays are sampled in all their glory for their full duration, which is not long!

The notes are A3, A#3, C4, D4, D#4, F4, G4. You will notice that the pitch of each note lowers by a semitone as it plays. This is the exact behavior of this small keyboard. The mapping is extended but for authentic playing, you should only use the 7 notes mentionned above.

This set is free and also available in soundfont and Native Instruments Kontakt 3 formats :
