LUSH V2.0 is essentially 3 Kontakt instruments stacked up to loosely model the tonal ranges of the bass, mid and top speakers of a studio monitor. The new Version 2.0 includes correction of some tuning variations across presets and adds new multis to increase the range of timbres and moods.
There are TEN instruments in the BASS section, FOURTEEN in the MID section and THIRTEEN in the TOP.
The TOP and MID are populated with complex, evolving ambient samples ranging from very mellow, to dreamy, to slightly unsettling. All samples are taken from Flintpope’s extensive selection of original sounds.
The BASS does what it says on the tin with soft sine waves through phasers etc and some plucked double bass samples through various amp models for a slightly harder edge.
Mixing these together in various combinations of what Kontakt calls multis (.nkm) gives a wide variety of rich, fat and sometimes delicious polyphonic pads.
There are FIFTEEN multis already preloaded but obviously the strength of this instrument is to mix and match your own variations in any order or combination you like. Two BASSES and no TOP? Why not.
Lush is designed with the small studio/bedroom producer in mind and assumes a typical 25 key keyboard is being used, for example Komplete Kontrol S25.
This obviates the need for multi-sampling to cover a Vangelis-sized spread and has helped keep the price down too.
