Dreadbox Nymphes Bundle consists of the two soundsets: Nostalgia (49 presets) and Monophonics (49 Presets).
“Nostalgia” is a collection of 49 polyphonic presets. The bank is devoted to vintage/retro/lo-fi sound: detuned, noisy, tape-style with flutter, wow, jitter…
It includes pads, strings, keys, and plucks that cover a wide range of tones: warm and soft, cold and distant, bright and dark, static and evolving…
“Monophonics” is a collection of 49 monophonic presets. It includes: 14 Basses (Banks A and B), 14 Leads (C and D), 14 Plucks (E and F), 7 Chords (G).
The soundsets are suitable for many genres: ambient, electronica, IDM, trip-hop, lounge, downtempo, chill out, new age, cinematic, trance, deep, progressive, techno, industrial, breakbeat, breaks, jungle, drum and bass, dub and others.
All presets are Velocity-sensitive and have ModWheel modulations. The presets are dry, I didn’t use Nymphes built-in reverb. But you may add any portion of reverb according to your situation, or use third-party effects.
Dreadbox Nymphes may import only one soundset at a time (can’t upload both soundsets simultaneously), as its memory has only 49 user slots. You may switch between the soundsets according to the situation and the types of presets you need. Uploading a soundset takes less than a minute.
Make sure you are using the latest Nymphes firmware (2.0.1 or higher).
The soundset is in a SYSEX format. It can be sent to the device via regular SYSEX apps, like SysEx Librarian (Mac) or MIDI-OX (Win).
Before sending the presets, make sure you’ve made a backup. After uploading the new bank, all previous user presets will be erased.
