Soundiron describes Oddball as a playful collection of pads, plucks, subs, stings, drones & drums sampled from cheap digital keyboards and then manipulated to the intergalactic limit. They say that each patch was carefully designed to unlock new realms of inspired creativity.
Here's more, direct from Soundiron...
From nostalgic '90s synth emulations and cheesy percussion loops & hits to luscious ambiences and soundscapes. Oddball has got you ready for your next game or animation score.
Oddball is eccentric. You'll hear electrical noises, tuning frequency modulations, and even a toy vibraphone. We've also added white, brown, and pink noise generators that you can blend in with your synthesizing. Oddball is a variety platter of sounds - It's the perfect sample toolkit to add to your composing arsenal.
The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility. You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more. We've also included 22 unique sound-designed custom FX presets to give you lots of creative options.
This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 12 lowpass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. Our customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration. We’ve included a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.
The interface is rounded-out by our modular FX rack panel, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. We’ve added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
