what synths to get for a new ndlr?
#11
It's not cheap unless you consider everything it does, but I love the Synthstrom Deluge with the NDLR. Synthstrom's next firmware update, 3.0, is adding a live looper, MPE support and a bunch of other stuff later this year.

My full electronic rig will hopefully soon be Linnstrument 128 (MPE midi controller) > NDLR > Synthstrom Deluge > Empress ZOIA (modular grid style emulti-effects pedal). I don't like having to fuss with a mixer so I'm keeping it simple. The Linnstrument should be here tomorrow and I'm still fundraising for the ZOIA, but I think I'll have a powerful rig that uses very little space.

That will be quite a light show!

Sure thing! Most all virtual instruments can be played with a MIDI keyboard, so they receive MIDI notes from whatever MIDI device is sending them, including The NDLR. You will need to configure your virtual instrument for the MIDI Port and Channel for the NDLR part you want it to play. For instance, if you want it to play the PAD part from the NDLR, set up Kontakt for the MIDI Port and Channel you assigned for that NDLR part.

Here's a link to how to configure Kontakt's MIDI parameters.

The NDLR USB MIDI has 4 virtual MIDI Ins/Outs, so you could assign the first NDLR port to one virtual instrument, and the next to another and so on. We did this so you could drive four separate virtual instruments without a DAW.

Thanks for this Darryl, that is great to hear!

Thanks again for the help everyone

Just waiting for the ndlr to arrive now (expected July I think?)

I am particularly looking forward to it now because I will be paying for a bit of set-up support from these guys

They sell a lot of synths and do a lot of training and reviewing...if you have any review ndlrs they would be excellent people to lend one to I reckon!
