An melodic drone engine based around mechanical sounds for Kontakt 5.8.1 and above. Mechia the second in a series of unique engines producing drone sounds, using our 4-voice Recoil playback engine. Mechia includes a set of 50 custom designed drone sources created to provide long-evolving textural soundscapes. The sounds are carefully structured to allow them to be used in a melodic context – they are much more than normal one-note drone loops. Mechia’s powerful 4-voice dual-channel engine offers you the sculpting and creative power to use 8 different sounds in your final playback: Select any combination of voices (including repeating the same voice but with modified settings for phase shifting and beating effects), each voice then passes through the standard channel, each with their own envelope, tremolo and vibrato modules. In parallel the voices pass through our unique physical modelling style exciter and resonator engines, where you can define exciter patterns and speed, attack, release and length as well as define a re-pitching sequence. Each voice channel has independent volume, pitch and sample-start offset controls.
EFFECTS Each of the ..ia products has 4 independent effect slots where you can assign up to 4 effects. Each effect slot offers you 20 different effects to choose from.
