VI experts recreate Hohner D6 Clavinet

Soniccouture Clav virtual instrumentSoniccouture Clav virtual instrumentSoniccouture, makers of Konkrete 3 reviewed in the current edition of Sound On Sound (http://sosm.ag/jul13-konkrete3), have just released a brand new Hohner D6 Clavinet virtual instrument. The instrument has been "surgically" sampled and uses 14,800 samples over five octaves, with 31 velocity levels on four articulations for each note.

More from Soniccouture follows.

Press Release: Soniccouture are very pleased to announce their latest product, a state-of-the-art reproduction of a Hohner D6 clavinet. 

A surgical approach to sampling the instrument involved specially modifying the instrument to provide separate outputs for each pickup, and add an input to the switchable D6 preamp EQ. This allowed Soniccouture to sample each pickup separately, which is how they are presented in the final virtual instrument. This makes it possible to precisely emulate the phase switching of the original instrument, as well as adding the unique ability to pan pickups in stereo, and to bypass the preamp for a clean ‘direct output’.
