VOLUME 1 For the Alesis NanoSynth

Alesis NanoSynth Nano Synth wind controller breath controlled patches sounds soundbanbks library libraries at Patchman MusicWind Controller #1 - PATCHMAN MUSIC Volume 1 for the Alesis NanoSynth contains 127 sounds specially designed by wind controller expert Matt Traum to be controlled with a wind controller such as the Yamaha WX5, WX7, WX11, WindJamm'r, Akai EWI, EWI5000, EWI4000s, EWI SOLO, EVI, Nyle Steiner's MIDI EVI and MIDI EWI, MDT, NuEVI, NuEWI, Aodyo Sylphyo, Roland Aerophone, or Softwind Synthophone. Keyboardists can enjoy these sounds with a Yamaha BC1, BC2, or BC3 breath controller plugged directly into a keyboard equipped with a breath controller input or into a device such as the MIDI Solutions Breath Controller Box or Anatek Wind Machine. These sounds require a wind controller or breath controller for proper use.

These sounds load inside the Alesis NanoSynth synth only, and require a wind controller or breath controller for proper use. They do not load inside a wind controller.

PATCHMAN MUSIC's NanoSynth Volume 1 features a superb palette of sounds providing almost every sound needed for a professional wind controller performance. It consists of a complete collection of highly expressive acoustic solo woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments, acoustic ensemble layers, unique morphed acoustic instrument patches, powerful synth leads, basses, guitars, a GM drum kit, and much more. Also featured are some highly bizaare specialty patches such as "*PhilGlass", "*Dimentia!" that must be heard to be believed. These patches really show off the Matrix Modulation capabilities of the NanoSynth to the fullest! We have also included various chorded string, brass, and synth patches which allow you to provide a full wall of sound from a single patch! For those times when it might be useful to add a shaker, conga, or cowbell part during a another band member's solo, we have included a GM drum kit.

 Please Note: This soundbank is specially designed for use with a wind controller or breath controller and thus requires one of these devices for proper use. These sounds require MIDI continuous controller #2 (breath controller) in order to make any sound. If you do not have a wind controller or breath controller you will probably not be able to use these sounds.

(Note: This soundbank is NOT compatible with any other Alesis synth.)

NanoSynth Volume 1 Highlights

Patches 59, 60, 61, and 62 are unique "morphed patches". They are distinguished by having a "+" as the last letter of their name. These sounds are unique in that the sound morphs, or gradually changes, from one instrument to another depending on your breath level! These sounds require a wind controller or breath controller for proper use.Wind Controller EWI EVI WX Alesis NanoSynth Nano Synth wind controller breath controlled patches sounds soundbanbks library libraries at Patchman Music

Patches 63 and 64 are splits. They were inspired by the Miles Davis song called "So What". With this single patch, you can play the bass line to this song AND the chorded horn ensemble part simply by virtue of the range you play in!

Patch 65, *Bagpipes, is a highly realistic bagpipe sound complete with the drones!

Patches 78 and 79 are velocity controlled layers. The sound switches between a bowed string sound and a pizzicato string sound depending on how hard you tongue a note!

Patches 80 through 85 are specialty patches that use pitchbend in a unique way. Generally speaking, these sounds will introduce an additional pitch or two, or will change the chord quality in response to pitchbend data. For example, patch #84, "*mMSusStPB", plays a standard major chord when no pitchbend is added. If you add pitchbend down, the chord changes to a minor chord. If you add a pitchbend up, the chord becomes a suspended chord! Patch #83, "*OrchChdPB", changes from a unison string section sound to a chorded string section when you send a large pitchbend down value. Patch #80, "*DblStp1PB", changes from a single solo violin note to a double stopped sound when you send a large pitchbend down value. Patch #85, "*5ChordsPB", actually allows you to play 5 different chord types from this single patch!! No pitchbend = major. Small pitchbend down = minor chord. Large pitchbend down = diminished chord. Small pitchbend up = suspended chord. Large pitchbend up = a minor 4 chord. We think you will find these sounds to be pretty amazing!

Composer Kurt Heinecke comments...

"I've got Matt's patches for the Yamaha VL70-m, Alesis S4+ and NanoSynth, and the Roland JV-1010. His patches really bring each module to life. Even cheaper and older modules like the S4+ and NanoSynth gain a second life. As an example, I've used Matt's cello patch from the S4+ in a string quartet and fooled one of the quartet members as she was entering practice- she heard the cello but didn't see me, and was wondering what cello player they had found! Matt goes the extra mile and takes the time to layer voice elements like breath noise, key clicks, and other subtle sounds into appropriate patches. Thanks for creating the S4+ bank- it gave me reason to track down and buy this older (but still powerful) module! I've used Matt's acoustic emulations in live settings with great success. His acoustic emulations have also worked well in my writing for VeggieTales and I often use his VL70-m flute and NanoSynth clarinet in orchestral settings." - Kurt Heinecke, composer/musician VeggieTales

"You should try the Nanosynth with the Patchman Bank. It is truly remarkable."

"I really liked the Nanosynth *before* I loaded the Patchman Patches. But having now loaded the Patchman Vol. 1 patches, I now *LOVE* my Nanosynth. Patchman's Volume 1 Nanosynth Bank is a *must have* for the wind synthesist who does not want to do his/her own programming. I played several trumpet and brass section patches that I plan to use, the 'bagpipes' patch is a hoot:-), and many of the combos are quite excellent sounding. The guitars were astounding - sounded very accoustic with lots of headroom. The saxes, especfially the soprano and the tenors, were surprisingly good for a sample playback synth. Overall, a very nice bank that greatly enhanced my utility and personal enjoyment of the Nanosynth. I recommend them without reservation."

"These are great patches. I am very glad that I purchased these patches. The Nanosynth has even more bang for the buck now! If I wanted, I could take the NanoSynth to the gig alone....anyway, if you haven't got these patches yet, get them. They are a *must have* if you play your Nanosynth with a wind controller."

"I'm very happy with the NanoSynth and especially your patches. They're fantastic! I could take the NanoSynth to a gig using your patches without any other tone generator. However, layering these patches along with a VL70-m and a TX81Z is just incredible. I really like the horn section group, I layered it with lead trumpet on the VL70-m and trombone on the TX and had a tremendous wall of sound. Our 6 piece group can grow to 12 on demand. Using a wind controller in the band gives the group a uniqueness and versatility no other group in the area has. As always you did a great job on these patches. I pretty much use only your patches on my generators. Thanks Again."

"They're great! Buy a Nano, then buy the Patchman bank of sounds for it. The Nano is amazingly fat, and Patchman's bank is excellent. I'm still amazed at the quality of sound from this tiny box, it's got a low end that doesn't quit! (That's a free promo Matt! ;^) )"

"Patchman Music has done an incredible job using these materials to form 128 patches. Some are quite amazing- where the patch morphs into different batches of those materials based on breath or lip pressure. And others employ poly-tones, splits, and special effects."

"I just got the patches. They layer wonderfully underneath the VL1-m voices. They are really cool! IMHO!! I was wondering before if Matt could really make them any better than the Alesis patches... and he did. They are DESIGNED for wind controller players in mind! What I especially like, Matt designed a lot of emulative voices and what's more he put in A LOT of combo sounds that are way cool... things like alto/trumpet; tenor/bone etc. A lot of them play very very good, and once again, sound real good when used in a layering sense."

"Playing with the NanoSynth and Matt's new soundbank has really opened me up to how versatile a setup can be when you have powerful, programmable layers."

"After receiving the Nanosynth soundbank, which I think is absolutely outstanding, I would like to tell you how much I also appreciate the other soundbanks I bought from you. Thanks for making these soundbanks available. They ALL make the modules come to life. I can't wait for a 'Nanosynth 2'."

"Matt, Thanks for your prompt response to my order. I bought a Nanosynth and loaded it up with your patches; thanks also for the nice detailed instructions and tips. My EWI USB is quite a different animal with your patches and I think I'm going to enjoy them a lot."

"I just started playing around with the Patchman soundbank for it and am very pleased with the sounds and the responsiveness. Great job!"

"Thanks for the great bank. You've clearly put a lot of time and thought into creating it. An amazing variety of sounds, as well as many impressive voice contructs."

"Yee-ha! Got the bank loaded. Definitely some cool sounds. Now I gotta figure out where to use 'em. Putting the drum kit in there was a stroke of genius! Now if I only had a looper... Thanks."

"Matt - Thanks! I'm enjoying the NanoSynth patches very much. I'm having a lot of fun. Tonight I'll be playing a swing dance gig: clarinet, tenor, WX7/synths. You've added greatly to my set of colors."

"I have both the VL70-m and the NanoSynth with the Patchman bank. I'm having a blast layering VL70-m emulations with Matt's synthy sounds especially Brecker1 and 2. I got nowhere trying to make it play with my WX11 so I got Matt's patches and I'm a happy man."

"Just dropped a note to say how pleased I am with your NanoSynth patches. Thank you very much for your hard work. Thanks again."

"Dear Matt, your patches are great and I'll be using many of them at my weekend gigs and I wish to thank you 'publicly'. Thanks to your patches and the NanoSynth, the WX7 is out of the closet. Warmest regards for the holidays - you are a fine person and I'm grateful for your help."

"In the past, I have received private emails blasting my reviews as 'endorsements'. Well sorry, but I pay full price for every bank I buy. The Nanosynth bank is the fifth bank I have purchased and I truly appreciate and benefit from Patchman's fine craftsmenship, and years of experience. Lastly, the NanoSynth, and the Patchman patches are a bargain considering how well it responds to breath. The Patchman NanoSynth BAGPIPES patch is so [accurate] (w/ Built in drone) that I am starting to try and develop my Bagpipes- I did IRISH EYE'S ARE SMILING and broke out laughing histerically! Thanks. I'll be working this St. Patty's day! Wahooooooo!"

"I've been using the Nanosynth, with the Patchman patches, and it's a great way to get into wind synthesis. Can't be beat for the money."

"I'm very pleased with the wind bank Patchman Music has created for it. They have put in an impressively wide range of voices and voice combos, and they respond great to wind control."

"I'm EXTREMELY happy with your work. I'm taking just my tenor sax along with the Nano and the VL to church. I'm just thrilled with the brass section patches. I really feel powerful playing these. Also the strings are great too. We play a lot of Latin flavored songs where I can fill in section phrases to my heart's content. Thank you for this great product. Our keyboardist was amazed when he heard the dynamics on the brass. So, hope you can keep coming up with more great stuff. Want to do a 2nd volume for the Nano? Count me in."

"I've ordered the Patchman Volume 1 for the Nano. They are well worth it. I liked the Bagpipes the best (just because it was unique and really surprised everyone). In fact I'm getting the Nano out of retirement for our Christmas program just for Matt's bagpipe patch."

"I received the patches on Thursday. And as you must expect, I'm extremely impressed and by the quality of the sounds. The Nano's brass ensembles, from duos to full sections, are a real riot!"

"Got my NanoSynth about a week ago and, quite honestly, thought of returning it. Got Matt's patches today... wow, this little piece kicks butt!! Somewhere in the record books there has got to be a place for Matt... the guy's a genius!!"

"I went to my local Guitar Center on Saturday and got one. I figured it would be a good 'knock around' synth. Today I got Matt's patches. The box comes alive with these patches. Add me to the list of satisfied customers."
