Progressive Clavi D6 is two sets of samples from the classic Clavinet, sampled as usual to worn tape on 60s valve equipment, to emulate the characteristics of the Mellotron. There are over 40 patches each for ESX24 and Kontakt 4.2.2 – the intent of this pack is to explore new sonic possibilities from the Clavinet. Compatible with NNXT and Structure but no patches available. Progressive Clavi D6 can emulate bass, distorted guitar as well as gentler stringed instruments, and works really well for early 70s jazz/prog style electric piano (soft machine etc). Responds nicely to distortion and wah, and due to the valve/tape source of the samples. It also sounds great played through a valve amp – perfect for live. The developer has used an extreme azimuth setting on the tape heads, creating a more ‘damaged’ and brittle sound. The artifact flecks enable bite on low settings with the clarity of the instrument retained.
