Cinematique Instruments has announced the release of the first three products in its new "Gecko" instruments series for Kontakt.

Gecko is a novel instrument concept for Kontakt which gives you the ability to compose quickly almost endless variations of a special instrument category such as "Strings", "Mallets", "Environs, "Percussion", etc. The principle of Gecko is the simultaneous use of up to 6 loadable sound-slots - each of them can be loaded with up to 20 well-prepared sound-sources which comes from the entire Cinematique Instruments Library enriched by several new sound-creations. There will be 7 Geckos: Cheap Keys, Odd Mallets, Metal Strings, Eerie Textures, Complex Environs, Warm Pads and Glitchy Rhythmer.

Odd Mallets: This is the mallet master. Rarely it has been so easy to create your own mallet sound - just like a cooking recipe: 2 pound of Marimba, a pinch of Draft Rhodes, a dash of Glockenspiel and a spoon full of Gas Bottle. Odd Mallets delivers a wide range of sound sources such as bells and glockenspiel, marimba, iron and weird metal, short guitar, keyboard sounds and some strange noises.

Glitchy Rhythmer: The right tool to lend distinction to the rhythmic base of your music. This gecko comes with an assortment of over 20 unique, glitchy and unusual add-on rhythmic and percussion loops. All of them are tempo-synced.

Warm Pad: Imagine, you're working on the chorus of a pop song and looking for the right pad. This gecko is the right tool for you. Compose the pads exactly you expect them.

Further Information

Gecko is very easy to work with. You just load one of the sound-sources into one of the six slots - you can play all 6 sounds-sources at the same time - set the volume and the pan separately of each sound-slot. This means you've got a matrix of, for example, 20 x 6 sounds which makes a theoretical amount of about 100,000 variations, arithmetically speaking. Beside this you can adjust the global sound of the whole instrument by using different kinds of filters, reverb and speaker simulation.

For people who like just to play around there are interesting preset variations. For those who want to get inspired of the uncountable variations or are just curious about the enormous possibilities Gekko provides a "Randomize!" function which sets all parameters by using a true random generator.

Pricing & Availability

The pricing is €33 for each single Gecko and €175 for all 7 Geckos.
