HQS Vol.2 is probably the definitive collection of sounds created and sampled in long format from a real Minimoog and sculpted by the synthisis tools in EVE and Wusik Station.You will find leads, split keyboards, basses , sound effects as well as extending the MiniMoog sound into spacial pads and synths with polyphony and stereo effects, thanks to the layering features of samplers. Amongst the sound set, you will find basses, organs, electric pianos, brass, pluck, fx and synthesised sounds, as well as a few of the formant sequences. But you wont find just professional mustisamples, also a bank of 128 EVE presets, featuring exciting and inspirational combinations of FS1r samples and EVE vintage sounds. Playing the sounds and making them come alive requires some techniques that were developed on the original MiniMoog. When playing leads, use the legato technique, playing smoothly on the keyboard without retriggering a full note on. Interesting timbres can be produced. The Legato technique along with pitch bend and mod wheel ( for vibrato) can create expressive leads and basses.
When playing the SYN and PAD presets( which are polyphonic) use chords. Hold for a little to hear the evolution of sound. There are quite a few little surprises. For Wusik Station users, there are several PADS and SYN presets that make use of the Wave sequencing ability of Wusik Station. While the presets show off what can be done with this sound set, the real beauty is in creating your own customized sounds using the 84 available multisamples . Your imagination is the limit.
