What Is The Idea Behind Khords?

The “Khords” huge sound library is stocked with stabs, plucks, strums, pads, atmospheres and tons more creative sources, letting you instantly inject new feeling into any genre of music. With the diversity and quality of Loopmasters’ sampling pedigree onboard, Khords is guaranteed to hit the spot every time.

Choose from major, minor and single note categories, and browse for any instrument combination that works for you. Khords’ random selector keeps with the same major/minor feel, so you can try new setups without losing tonality.

Khords’ synth engine is intuitive but powerful, offering real-time audio warping to control the pitch and timing of samples, 12 filter types, amplitude and filter ADSR, LFO, and Effects to bring extra character to your sound.

Presets

Khords installs with 550 presets – each is a fully designed  synth patch with samples, effects and processing already set up. Presets are organised into 14 categories, which are accessed through the Preset menu at the top of the instrument.

Khords’ Keyboard And Playback

At any point, you can trigger Khords using the on-screen keyboard at the bottom. More often, you’ll use MIDI in your DAW to trigger Khords – in most cases, the keyboard display within the plugin is used for feedback on what notes are being sent to Khords by your DAW, rather than for actively playing Khords with your mouse pointer.

Chord Layer & Note Layer: The Basics

At the heart of Khords are two ‘oscillators’, which each play back one of 315 samples from the extensive Loopmasters collection.

  • CHOOSING SAMPLES – To select a sample, click the name in the Sample selector, and choose a from the list via tonality and instrument categories.
  • SELECTING SAMPLES RANDOMLY – Use the button to the right of the sample name to select a new sample randomly.
  • SAMPLE START TIME – Not every sample will have the attack you want, so you can choose the point at which playback starts using the Sample Start slider.

Chord Layer & Note Layer: Further Functions

  • AMPLITUDE ENVELOPE – Each sample layer implements a standard ADSR envelope.
  • STRETCH PANEL – With the Speed and Formant controls, you can warp a sample layer to your liking.
  • TRANSPOSE SAMPLES – There are three transposition selectors in Khords: one each for each sample layer, and another Master control which affects both.

Chord Filter / Note Filter

  • CUTOFF AND RESONANCE – Adjust the Cutoff control to remove frequencies from the signal. Add resonance to increase the gain of the frequencies around the Cutoff.
  • FILTER TYPE – Select from 12 types of filter using this menu.
  • KEYTRACK – Activating this switch will cause the filter’s cutoff to move higher or lower in response to the notes Khords receives.
  • PRE-DRIVE – This control adds distortion to the signal before it hits the filter.

Filter Envelope

Similar in appearance to each sample’s ADSR envelope, the Filter Envelope controls the movement of the Filter Cutoff for each note that’s played.

Filter LFO

These controls select how each layer’s filter cutoff will be affected by that layer’s LFO. The LFO is a cycling signal that will move the cutoff up and down automatically at a speed and depth you set yourself.

  • SHAPE – Choose from eight LFO waveform shapes. Sine, Triangle, Square and Saw mimic the classic analogue waveforms; Random generates a randomly stepped modulation waveform, while Drift generates a smooth, randomly moving modulation waveform.
  • AMOUNT – This sets the depth of the LFO signal’s effect on the filter cutoff.
  • RATE AND SYNC – The Rate dial sets the speed of the LFO signal’s movement, measured in Hertz by default. If Sync is activated, the modulation speed will snap to exact values based on the host’s tempo, from a slow 8-bar cycle to a fast 1/32T cycle.
  • PHASE – This offsets the starting time of the LFO signal.
  • TRIGGER – With Trigger set to Off, the LFO will play consistently. With Trigger On, the LFO’s cycle will restart with every incoming note.

Level

Determine the output level for each sample layer. These faders can be used either to blend the two layers together and/or to compensate for any changes level due to filtering, envelope sustain, etc.

FX Section

Khords comes with a choice of Effects that work great for adding atmosphere to tonal chord lines.

Each of the Chorus, Delay and Reverb modules has its own diverse types to select, and the three can be routed in various ways. Each effects module must be activated by switching on the light at the top.

  • CHORUS – This effect duplicates the input signal, and delays one copy by a certain amount. The result is a wider, warbling sound similar to the effect when multiple singing voices.
  • DELAY – You can make your signals echo rhythmically with three types of delay algorithm.
  • REVERB – This module will add a sense of space to your signal, making it sound as if it’s located in a real-world room or other space.
  • FX ROUTING – The three FX modules are not fixed into the Chorus >> Delay >> Reverb signal path, although this is the default setup.

Master FX

Placed just before Khords’ output, the Master FX section offers final polishing and levelling of the sound produced in the rest of the patch, making the sound ready to go into your project.

  • FREQUENCY BOOSTER – This section can add more power and weight to your sound.
  • TOP, MIDDLE AND BOTTOM – These knobs increase the strength of processing to three bands of frequencies: high, mid and low frequencies for the Top, Middle and Bottom dials respectively.
  • DRY/WET SLIDER – This applies the effect dialled in within the Top, Middle and Bottom knobs by a certain amount.
  • LEVEL – This is the master level slider, reducing or increasing Khords’ output signal.

Voice Settings, Wheels And Macros

In Khords’ bottom-left panel, you’ll find ways to control how Khords responds to incoming notes and other controls, as well as methods for making it more interactive and easy to perform with.

  • VOICE SETTINGS: PORTAMENTO, GLIDE, LEGATO – When the selector to the right is set to Legato, Khords will behave as expected for any usual instrument or synthesizer, with Porta (Portamento) selected, the notes don’t even need to overlap in order for this Glide to happen.
  • PITCH AND RANGE – Using your MIDI controller’s Pitchbend wheel, you can affect the pitch of Khords’ playback on the fly.
  • MOD CONTROLS – Using the Mod section, you can set four parameters to be affected at once from a single control.
