Mandolin Sounds

Mandolin Textures is an instrument created using the sound of acoustic mandolin only. On some patches, sound is heavily manipulated, so the sound is a lot different than you might expect.

This instrument does not represent sampled mandolin with all articulations. This is an inspiring tool which is based on mandolin source, and is highly inspiring and musical.

First two patches are standard muted mandolin sound, which they like a lot and find highly usable and naturally sounding.

​Muted mandolin patch is sampled in 4 velocity layers and 3 round robins.

Other patches are various textures, pads and ambient sounds.

Mandolin is sampled with Royer SF 12 stereo microphone in combination with original  Neve 1073 stereo pair of preamps OR occasionally Millenia HV-3C.
