Arturia MMV Audio Demos - MP3's
|Every sound on every Arturia demo is 100% Arturia Moog Modular V virtual analog synth, with the only outboard gear used being some EQ where needed and Reverb.
Because the demos vary greatly in loudness and how loud they should be listened to, I put general listening levels in some of them to initially be set to before each demo so as to prevent a sudden blast of deafening sound, then the level can be adjusted after playing starts. The time length of the demo is also given.
This demo shows strings, woodwinds, French horn, a few trumpet notes, and timpani. Unfortunately after piling on some of the sounds, many of the woodwind parts got covered up and can’t be heard. This is a different demo than the 30 second SymphonyIntro demo I first posted, but this one has already been posted in some places. Loud, 1:01
For completeness, here is the piano demo which most have probably already heard. Please excuse the clipping at one point, as I hadn’t accounted for levels of 12 notes of polyphony piling up. 0:40
Strings, piano, flute, clarinet, and pizzicato bass sounds show up in this slow piece. Medium Quiet, 2:00
Harpsichord 4’, 8’, 16,’ and lute stops were synthesized and can be mixed to create all kinds of different harpsichord sounds just like the real thing. Even the thumping sound of the keys being released and the sound of the plectra scraping across the string as it falls back into position were synthesized. The 8’ stop should probably not decay with as much brightness (I’ll fix that later) as it sounds a little synthy. This demo shows many different stop combinations. Excuse my messed up playing at the 0:25 mark. 1:37
Oboe in the right channel, English horn in the left, bassoon, strings, and harpsichord. Medium, 0:34
Some of this brass is somewhat realistic and some is synthetic sounding, but it shows a variety of different brass sounds. The Grieg demo after this demo uses later brass which I synthesized using EWQLSO Silver sample library brass as a guide. Loud, 0:46
Brass, strings, woodwinds, timpani, bass drum, cymbals, and piano in this one. Loud, 0:56
Just improvised the bagpipe part then programmed a drum part to go along with it. It depicts a bagpipe and drum corps marching by. Loud, 0:45
This has some acoustic mimicry but also a variety of stuff, from weird effects, to synth sounds, ending in some disjointed (and some parts too slow) excerpts from an original piece to test out some sound combinations. Medium Loud, 3:47
