SICU by LDM Design

Expressive MPE Pan Flute Instrument

£16.00

Sicu is a boutique physically modeled MPE Pan Flute instrument. Minimalist controls make way for simple and effective hands-on play which responds to Aftertouch / Channel Pressure and MPE pitch bends. Although optimised for a realistic pan flute sound, the instrument also allows for a much longer envelope to create breathing pad sounds.

    INSTALLATION:

    Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.

    .alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.

    .amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.

    Initial Release – 26th March 2024

    SICU by LDM Design

    The instrument has 3 components. First, the initial blowing sound, then the breath sound and a filtered square wave oscillator. The breath is created with blue noise running through a carefully designed bank of resonant bandpass filters, which is something you can’t really reproduce using most synthesizers. These sounds have then been carefully tuned to attenuate the tone across a range of notes to balance out the output. Care has been taken to give the widest range of useable notes, but there is definitely a sweet spot around C3.

    The instrument is optimised for MPE playback, but any keyboard with poly aftertouch can produce beautiful expressive tones as the aftertouch attenuates the output, mimicking the variations of a real breath. MPE users also have the ability to subtly or dramatically alter the pitch of the notes.

    The interface is minimalist, focusing on simply creating a realistic expressive sound. The top row of dials is for Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release, indicated by the simple descriptive icons. Then we have timbre control, velocity and pressure. Crossfade between the breath and the square tone, and change the amount that velocity and pressure will affect the output of the sound. At the bottom, we can select a mono or polyphonic sound and also modify the volume level.
