Elixer: The Lost Tapes!

Elixer: The Lost Tapes! It features 40 instruments (most are multi-sampled, some very heavily), and 23 sound fx and dialogue sources from old public domain film (many of these are multi-sampled as well). GUI and engine were done by Glyn Lloyd of Divergent Audio Group.

Inspired by

The sounds were inspired, more or less, by Boards of Canada. In general, the goal was to create nostalgic sounds that have character and feeling.

Elixer: The Lost Tapes! Overview

Elixer is a powerful 4 voice instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt sampler.
There are 5 categories inside:

  • The Lost Tapes
  • All 4 In
  • Dialogue and FX
  • Instruments
  • Reversed

Each category contains a selection of presets (snapshots). There are 199 of these snapshots available in total. You can use the snapshots as a starting point for your own sound design or as an instant inspiration for your compositions.
Included are extensive randomization controls. Each page can be randomized (Voices, Modulation, Effects, and Movement) or you can randomize individual voice selections.

Elixer and the ‘Motion’ engine was developed by Divergent Audio Group with Erick McNerney providing the wonderful sound design elements contained therein.
Please note: The FULL version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or above is required – Not for Kontakt Player.

Elixer The Lost Tapes Movement


The centerpiece of the instrument is the highly creative XY blend control.
This control allows you to blend the levels for each of the 4 voices. We also added a unique Movement control which allows you to automate the movement of the XY control in exciting new ways. You can make the blend control move vertically, horizontally or in a circular motion on the movement page.
This allows you to create sounds that blend exactly how you want them to, in sync with your project.
The movement can be smooth and gradual or instant and choppy so you can set up gradual texture changes or even rhythmic pulses with this simple to use control.

The Movement panel blend control can be dragged with your mouse while the automation engine plays in real time or you can use the sliders along the edges for precise control. You can also assign midi cc or host automation parameters to the sliders to create complex movements and record the results in your DAW.
