ORIGINAL ORIGINS COUPLES
THE FIRST COUPLE
STEEL TONGUE DRUM & SANSULA
The Steel Tongue Drum is a modern instrument played with mallets or by hand. With its percussive sound, it forms the perfect pendant to the Sansula.
The Sansula is a recent advancement of the Kalimba, which has its roots in traditional African music. Played by plucking metal tines attached to a membrane, the Sansula has a soft, but rich sound.
THE SECOND COUPLE
MUSIC BOX & PLUCKED PIANO
The Music Box is often considered a toy, but offers a distinct sonic experience, which composers enjoy utilizing for an impactful effect on the listener. Think of a flashback in a movie, where a kid is running through the grass on a sunny day – or imagine a serial killer caressing his cuddly toy. The music box offers the perfect sound for these intense and simultaneously subtle emotions.
The Plucked Piano is the ideal companion for the Music Box to create thrilling, mysterious and arcane soundscapes in no time. As the strings are being plucked instead of hit by a soft felt-covered hammer, the resulting sound is harsher and more rugged – perfect to get your audience into the right mood.
THE THIRD COUPLE
12-STRING & BALALAIKA
The 12-String acoustic guitar offers a fresh, bright sound for a modern and familiar feel and, at the same time, can be used to emphasize ethnic, far-away nuances in your music.
Add the Balalaika for rich, more delicate and traditionally rooted textures. Originally from the regions of Central Asia and Russia, the Balalaika feels right at home in any ethnic, cinematic or contemporary setting, suited for gentle accompaniment as well as characteristic melodies.
THE FOURTH COUPLE
OUD & QANUN
The Qanun (قانون), a renowned Arabian relative of the Zither, is famous for its unique, melodramatic sound.
The Oud (عود: literally “wood”) has been the key instrument across Middle Eastern and North African traditional and popular music for centuries, even millenniums in its region of origin. This forerunner of the European Lute impresses with its signature sound, enjoys the spotlight in your mix and pairs splendidly with the Qanun.
THE FIFTH COUPLE
UKULELE & MUTED PIANO
With its light, familiar tone, the Ukulele is at home in the upper ranges. Let it happily pluck away to your score, give it a percussive twist, create ambient pads or run impressive modern-sounding arpeggios with it: The possibilities are endless and usually just one preset away.
The Muted Piano provides an interesting scope for tonal design. Playing simple chords can lay an atmospheric groundwork for your composition, while the Multi-Arpeggio-Designer can give the instrument a characteristic, modern, sometimes futuristic feel. Paired with the Ukulele, you can achieve a new and fresh sound right on the pulse of time.
The Multi-Arpeggio-Designer is the centerpiece of every „Origins“-instrument. Two fully customizable arpeggiators create interlocking patterns and broad soundscapes by combining the unique timbres of the two instruments. The engine is designed to convey a musically meaningful, human performance, instead of a computer randomly aligning notes.
Load up one of 100+ inspiring presets or create your own arpeggios in as much detail as you like. The MAD provides a variety of different features and controls to realize your musical vision.
COPY ARPEGGIO DESIGNS BETWEEN ALL ORIGINS INSTRUMENTS
You created your own ingenious arpeggio design and want to use it with another ORIGINS product? Simply copy and paste your design to use it on-the-fly in any other instrument of the ORIGINS bundle.
The 12 individual color-presets provide even more possibilities to sculpt your sound. All colors are radically different in character and incorporate various effect settings and multiple impulse responses. While each MAD-Preset has an assigned color preset, you can combine everything at will, resulting in over 1200 predefined combinations.
