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 plug-ins.
Each individual output can be set to mono or stereo. For the greatest 808 fans we've added also original Trigger output (configurable as well).
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 parameters.
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 function.
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!
It's not a standalone program so you need a host application to use it.
Beat, September 2012
» Sound von Nepheton und Drumazon sehr nahe am Original bewegt, durch zahlreiche Ergänzungen aber auch weit darüber hinaus gehen kann. Die Plug-ins besitzen eine Flexibilität und Vielseitigkeit, wie sie nur eine algorithmische Klangerzeugung bieten kann und Shuffle-Funktion oder der ausgefeilte Randomizer helfen auch der Kreativität auf die Sprünge. «
» Once again, any 808 samples can be deleted off hard drives. Puritans should flock to the Nepheton - you'd probably like the interface. Non-puritans can be content to know that they have in possession part of the DNA that makes up Electronic music. Feel free to pervert it! love it as a sound module! Great work! ... The Nepheton is solid! You'll be impressed! «
Digital Music Magazine, Nov/Dec 2007
» Nepheton è certamente uno dei migliori cloni della drum 808 machine. Il suono caldo e profondo è incredibilmente vicino a quello dell’hardware originale. «
Wusik Magazine, #18, Oct 2007
» Nepheton is the truth - plain and simple. Few have such a successful record at emulation. D16 has proven again that no hardware is safe from becoming software. This is a brilliant instrument that will surely be in many productions. «
Computer Music, CM116, Summer 07
» We can definitely recommend it if you're fed up with using 808 samples and would like something that you can tweak like the real thing. «
Future Music, September 2007
» Like Drumazon and Phoscyon before it, Nepheton is as good an imitation of its hardware forebear as I reckon we’re ever going to see. [...] If you’re after an 808 and are sick of the countless sampled renditions you probably already own, then look no further – Nepheton has ‘that’ sound right down to a tee, and in the mix you’d never know it wasn’t the real thing. «
Keys, September 2007
» Der Klang ist selbstverständlich über jeden Zweifel erhaben und macht mächtig Alarm. «
Remix, August 2007
» All 17 of Nepheton’s fully synthesized percussion sounds are spot-on [...] D16 has captured every nuance and detail I can recall of the 808 voices, many with additional controls for much more tweaking potential than on the classic. «
Beat, Juli 2007
» Dass die Programmierer der d16 Group ihr Handwerk verstehen, haben sie schon bei Phoscyon und Drumazon eindruckvoll bewiesen. Und so überrascht es nicht, dass sich auch der Sound von Nepheton sehr nahe am 808-Original bewegt, durch seine zahlreichen Ergänzugen aber auch weit darüber hinaus gehen kann «
