“Nostalgia” is a collection of 49 polyphonic presets for Dreadbox Nymphes.
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…
The soundset is 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.
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.
