Function Loops and Channel Robot have announced a new collaboration, Percussion Grid, pairing more than 200 of Function Loops' loops with the Channel Robot Kontakt instrument Grid Machine//Slice.
Cut, Chop, Stutter, Reverse, Mix, Modulate and of course Slice the included loops with Grid Machine//Slice, a powerful loop altering tool that enables you to bend, twist and re-create your loops all in real time.
A virtual instrument for Kontakt (5.0.2+), Grid Machine//Slice places creative and playable features right at your fingertips, and on your keyboard (using its extensive key-switch system). Grid Machine//Slice features EQ, Filter, Distortion, Lo-Fi, Phaser, Flanger, Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Pan, Tremolo, and Vibrato effects, all connected to an independent set of controllable modulators. Over 20 different ways to slice (re-order) each loop, plus you can play these patterns forwards, backwards, forwards and backwards, half-speed, double speed, and skip slices. Mute, reverse or repeat(stutter) individual slices of your choice.
You can cross-mix between loops giving you even more possibilities. Retrigger a loop any time you like from any slice, play sub-loops, latch on a single slice, time changes and loop re-triggers to bar and beat all from your keyboard or the user friendly GUI inside Kontakt. Tempo sync'ed to your DAW or play as a stand-alone instrument.
