Mociula is a bundle of synth instruments trying to work like a modular system. It consists of several different tools or modules such as synths generators, effects, filters, a sequencer, a sampler and some other useful as well as unique tools. But surely – as a KONTAKT instrument – there are no options to combine tools at your own requirements, connect cables or change tools/ modules within the instruments. Mociula is not a free-patchable system like you find it in the hardware world. All instruments are predefined and fixed in structure.
Right now there are 5 instruments which will be described in the following: FRAME – ROW – SCAPER – RISE – TAPE
FRAME The fundament of each system. A sine/square oscillator with exciting features: stepless tune, rhythm gate, distortion & layer mode. Frame is also equipped with an effect rack with a 4 pole filter and resonance, delay, reverb and a compressor and finally a bitcrusher – ready to destruct your audio. Enriched by an oscilloscope. Astonishing what this module comes out with.
ROW The Sequencer A 16 step SEQUENCER combined with a sound generator and SHAPE, a complex effect module – this is what ROW consists of. The sequencer has a range of 4 octaves, 3 accents level and a bordun note feature. Additionally features are a sine/ square, a controllable glide and length and distortion. The effect section provides a reverb, a delay, 2 types of filter and a compressor and nuch more.
SCAPER Make some subtile ambiances and textures The perfect module to add some unique and subtle background to your music. The fundament is a sound generator which layers 4 well assorted sounds and ambiences – each of them is separately controllable. The sounds can be shaped by a 3 band spectral filter with many options. Finally your sound can be enhanced by a reverb/ delay section. Nice textures – nice module.
RISE The endless fall. Rise is very special module which is based on the Shepard Tone. It constantly creates the auditory illusion of a tone which ascends or descends in pitch over and over with no end. You can select between two sound sources, change the tempo and add some reverb, delay or filter to it. It is a great experience.
TAPE Let it roll This is a tape machine simulator featuring 8 different tapes loops with very different sounds from Lama Chanting over Bike Chains Noises to Water Drops. The module is a reminiscence of Musique Concrète – making music out of surrounding sounds. By activating the gate the tapes are starting to get rhythmically. Adjust the length knob and patch in more tapes to change it. Again, it is a great experience
