Awakenings is brought into the world of Padshop Pro, Steinberg’s Granular Synthesizer. There 200 hand crafted Sampled Instruments from Awakenings a collection of sounds originally designed. There are 10 Different Presets for each of the 200 instruments in a different style, each style making use of Padshop’s synth engine, which adds up to 2000 Presets. All presets use Aftertouch and the Modulation Wheel for live manipulation of various parameters.
Each Sampled Instrument has a preset in the following categories:
Bright – Single Synth with an open Low Pass filter.
Dual 1, Dual 2 – These categories use both synth engines in different ways.
High Pass – These use a High Pass Filter.
Lead – Simple Lead Versions.
Mellow – Single Synth with a more dulled sound.
Slow 1, Slow 2 – Slow Attack Categories
Stab – Short Filter Envelopes, good for ARPs.
Verby – Single Synth using Reverb.
Total Sampled Instruments: 200
Total Presets: 2000
