We wanted to combine classic drum machines ( 15, to be exact ) with the the organic ambience and warmth of studio recorded drums.

So, we took a club PA to two different studios, turned it up really loud, and recorded the results: through high-end mics, vintage consoles, valve pre-amps, bass-amps and even acoustic drum shells.

FROM THE EARLY DAYS OF SYNTHS
The Ondioline was invented in 1941, and produced in France throughout 1950s/60s. It was conceived by inventor Georges Jenny as a low cost Ondes Martenot; sharing the same lateral vibrato keyboard, with a knee-lever to shape volume. It was entirely valve-based with its own built-in amplifier and inspired the Clavioline, Jennings Univox and Hammond Solovox. The sound can be surprisingly realistic when the vibrato and knee lever are used together - organic, sinuous and extremely expressive.

AFRICAN BALAFON WITH SNARES

RECORDING THE BALAFON

French musician Jean-Philippe Rykiel contacted us about a unique type of African balafon in which each key had “snares” that vibrated when played, giving it a interesting buzzing quality.
Sometimes called a “gyil”(JEE-le), it's usually found in parts of northern Ghana, Burkina Faso, and south-eastern Mali. Hardwood keys are suspended over calabash gourds. Silk or paper covers small holes in the gourds which resonates to produce the characteristic buzzing.

Soniccouture Ondes v2.0 features new interface graphics, but most significantly it now has phase-locked oscillator samples. In the original version of Ondes, blending the different sampled waveforms would result in a slightly phasey sound. Although quite pleasing and fat, this was not strictly realistic. Now it is possible to switch from the original version to a phase-locked sample set, which gives a very authentic single oscillator sound, very like the real Ondes Martenot.

Perhaps one of the most enigmatic musical instruments of all time, The Ondes Martenot ( literally ‘Martenot Waves’) was invented by Maurice Martenot in 1928. The original unreliable tube-based design was refined and later models remained in production until 1988. An interesting overview of the instrument can be seen on Youtube.

Soniccouture are Dan Powell and James Thompson. They met whilst working for a major synthesiser company as sound designers, during which time they shaped the sonic pallettes of many landmark sampling and synth products.
Now, as Soniccouture, they have developed a reputation for high quality, idiosyncratic libraries based on unusual instruments and avant-garde sound design that traditional library developers don't explore in such depth. This philosophy has won many fans and Soniccouture products are now used in major Hollywood films and professional music production or wherever unique, high-quality sounds are required.
