PatchVault is a free Kontakt instrument with simple-but-clever modern controls bolted to an authentic analogue sound source for immediate, hands-on control.
PatchVault is an ever-growing collection of patches from the most coveted synths of the past. Taking original, authentic sounds from ancient hardware and wrapping them in a simple but powerful interface, it makes grabbing that sound a breeze.
The interface is geared towards hands-on, immediate tweakability. It features a neat little Tilt EQ, a powerful 4-pole filter, and can map MIDI velocity to both amplifier and filter cutoff, giving you playable expression that was uncommon on most of the original hardware.
There’s Chorus and Tube Saturation to enhance the sound, plus a Limiter to tame over-enthusiastic analogue waves. All the modern additions can be easily switched off, though, if all you want is the original factory patch in its raw state.
