Dimension Art is for the players — a selection of delicate, malleable and rich sounds for a variety of styles and genres, carefully crafted by sound designer Geoffrey Gee.
Choose from a range of smooth, reedy and organic sounds with a synthetic edge that respond to a variety of touches and gestures, keeping you inspired and adding new flair to your MPE performances. Clavinets and electric pianos are available in a range of timbres, as well as percussion, synth and mallet sounds that are incredibly responsive to MPE touch, all with performance & XY controls that can be used to gently augment each sound further.
Geoffrey Gee is a pianist, composer and sound designer based in upstate New York. His sound design career dates back to the 1990s at Kurzweil Music Systems, where he served as chief voicing artist for a number of the most sought after keyboards, modules, and workstations of the day. He worked with the company’s famously high quality sampled instruments and added detailed models for the real-time control of articulation and vibrato. He also pioneered a technique of voicing multiple sampled instruments in such a way as to allow keyboard players to create expressive and realistic orchestral arrangements live with their two hands.
Sounds in this Cypher2 Expander have been optimised for the ROLI Seaboard RISE. For those using conventional controllers, there are standard versions of each sound featuring dedicated modulation via channel pressure/aftertouch.
