JULY 2013 – Boxed Ear is proud to announce the release of the OSCar Kontakt Sample pack for Kontakt 4 and 5.
Boxed Ear OSCar is a Kontakt library made entirely with the amazing OSC OSCar synthesizer. Released in 1983 by the Oxford Synthesizer Company, the OSCar was a unique combination of analog and digital. The oscillators are a digital design with the capability of being able to build waveforms using additive synthesis. These feed into an analogue multi-mode filter design which was inspired by the Minimoog trick of looping the synths output back into the filter’s input to overdrive the filter circuits, resulting in a characteristically crunchy sound.
Included in the pack are 119 Kontakt instruments which cover a wide range of synth sounds, both monophonic and polyphonic: tough basses, gorgeous evolving pads, complex leads and a host of other synth sounds all stamped with the OSCar’s unique sound.We’ve put all our efforts into coaxing the most interesting patches and sounds from the OSCar so you get a wonderful library of expressive and playable Kontakt instruments.
It’s a 1.1Gb soundset with over 2300 samples at 24-bit, 44.1 kHz quality. 119 Kontakt instruments at a cost of USD $49, EUR €39 or GBP £30 inc.VAT
