Thank you, quite flattered I mean it is my first ever "tutorial" (whatever it can be called) video so I had huge reservations myself and imagined everybody falls asleep Smile

One thing some commented on YT quite rightly is that the audio from Kronos and the voice are very different so it can be quite annoying and makes one jump. So will try a better job at that in future Smile


That was me. I try to do a test run these days to check how loud the Kronos is compared to my voice. Even then getting the levels right can be tricky, especially when going through so many sound examples like you were.
Have you tried using the Kronos Editor? Screen recording the editor is a lot cleaner than recording the Kronos screen IMO.
That said, it IS a good video with great talking points. I don't want my criticism to dissuade you from making more content. STR-1 is long overdue for some nice tutorials.


No worries, it does make one jump with level differences indeed - the Kronos audio was quite overpowering compared to speech and will try, if I get the energy and rainy weekend Smile , to normalise speech and balance with similar levels.

I used very slightly the editor, it has some very unnerving "features" but was thinking it is more 'direct' i.e. people can directly relate to what to click and where if I try the actual screen, especially if some don't use it. The editor emulates well the user interface and wants to be similar, but personally for me it brings me one step away from the actual device.

Anyway no worries not dissuaded Smile just need to get the mindstate to do this, I find it extremely tedious and never before ventured into such video territory, except when 'released' a medieval instrument sample bank - but there did no talking, phew Smile

So here it is, as late as it is, but 3 programs of the sounds shown in the video:

All in USR_CC bank, locations 000..002, all other programs are INIT so please take care not to blast all patches you may have in that bank:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/rdonqily82csral/STR1examples.PCG?dl=0

The 3 examples from the video are that choir-ish thing, the "sonar string" and the plucked + sweeping organ sound.

Nothing tremendous but hopefully of some use to play with some parameters.

Just rediscovered a lot of STR-1 goodies!

Almost all of user bank D are STR-1 programs. The first 50 or so are your standard guitar and bass guitar emulations. But from 53 onward are some really "non-typical", ethereal sounds somewhat unique to the Kronos.

The combi Though-after-Thought features 3 STR-1 programs as well.

Indeed, and most of Qui Robinez's STRength bank (free download) are really good uses of the beast Smile

Thanks Smile indeed it can have some surprising results when pumping samples through the engine as exciter for the string.

I added a shorter quick video about things as bizarre as using drum samples for plucking Smile
