Nepheton contains 17 fully synthesized instruments perfectly emulating
the famous 808 drum machine. All the nuances and details of the
instruments sounds are captured perfectly. The instruments models are
equipped with additional controls giving you possibility to tweak the
sound much better. Listen to the audio examples or just download the
demo and try it out.
Nepheton has a flexible output configuration. Every instrument's audio
signal can be routed to any of the 17 outputs. This allows users to
further shape sounds individually or in groups via their favourite
Each individual output can be set to mono or stereo. For the greatest
808 fans we've added also original Trigger output (configurable as
Every instrument also has a Mute, Solo button and Activity led. Mute
will not just silence the sound, it will stop the sound being
triggered. Solo will stop all other instruments from being triggered
and only allow the selected sound(s) to play.
Nepheton has extensive midi control. Midi notes can be used to trigger
each individual sound. Alternatively, the internal sequencer can be
used. This can be set to play using Nepheton's internal clock or set
to synchronize perfectly to the host sequencer.
Most of Nepheton's parameters can be automated within the host and
also controlled using MidiCC with an external controller. An
easy-to-use Midi Learn function allows reassignment of any of the
Internal sequencer's memory contains two banks of patterns: simple and
extended. There is 16 extended and 96 simple patterns which both can
be edited traditionally using the step buttons or using the tap
Simple patterns are used in Host Mode where each pattern location has
a midi note number assigned to it. With these notes you can control
freely the order of played patterns.
Extended pattern differs from the simple one in it has 4 segments
(variation A/B and part 1/2). The whole bank of 16 extended patterns
is divided into two groups of Basic Patterns and Intro/Fill In
Patterns. You can choose freely from played patterns, used variations,
and fill in modes (triggered automatically or manually). It also can
be defined whether the starting pattern should be preceded by
introduction pattern and many many more. Extended patterns are used
when Host Mode is off.
A Randomizer function is also provided within the internal sequencer.
It can be used to make simple changes to a pattern or create a whole
new one - ideal when your creativity needs a boost! Randomizing can be
applied to specific instruments and the frequency of occurrence can
also be adjusted easily to give you just the right amount.
All external files are stored in the XML format. This allows single
patterns or whole banks to be exchanged between users easily. XML
allows the files to be edited in a text editor. Ideal if you want to
post or share a pattern on a web site - just post the text!
