Homegrown Sounds releases Kosmology Analog - Advanced Sequencing for Kontakt 5

Homegrown Sounds has released Kosmology Analog for Kontakt 5.

Here's what they say: "The sound of the Elektron Analog Four has entered the world of Kosmology. Even though the instruments are more on the experimental side compared to the previous Kosmology Releases, the end result is a quite surprisingly mellow sample set, filled with lots of movement and discovery when sequencing. These Instruments were designed specifically for use with Kosmology to bring some of the warmth and characteristics from the excellent sounding Analog Synthesizer, which has it's own very distinct character."

All 200 instruments are multi-sampled, using 4 samples per instrument at 24-bit using pure synthesis with very few effects. Whilst many sounds are chromatically useful, there are also plenty of FX instruments throughout the collection to add some nice surprises and interests whilst Wave Sequencing. Although Kosmology is not really about presets, there are Fifty Presets included and of course presets from other Kosmology releases can also be opened.

Kosmology - The Script

Kosmology is inspired by Modular based sequencers with the aim of providing 8 completely distinct multi-sequencers which can be switched in real-time using 8 keys on your MIDI Keyboard. A Kosmology release includes the Sequencing Capabilities combined with a set of 200 multi-sampled instruments which form the basis of its character. It mimics a classic dual oscillator synth structure in its design with complete control over all parameters, and is also capable of Wave sequencing the Instruments. Although Kontakt is known more as a Sample Preset Plug-in, Kosmology is akin to a hardware Groovebox with onboard sounds to sequence and manipulate in almost infinite ways.

Each of these 8 sequencers are known as instances and are made up of pitch, velocity and 5 freely assignable sequencers from a large list of destinations. Each Instance also has complete control over the 48 parameters which shape the sound, such as Filters, Envelopes, LFOs and FX, each instance can be a slight variation or radically different depending on how you want to use it. Each sub sequence has it's own step size and can be set to follow the main tempo division or use it's own for great Syncopation capabilities, and it is also polyphonic with each sequence retriggering when it is played and so good for complex polyrythms.

A lot of work has gone into making the workflow intuitive and quick, with copy & paste for the sequencers, and the current instance can be easily copied to another instance or to All Instances simultaneously with a single click. The latter is great for working on a base sequence and then when you are happy, copy to all and then work on variations. There are also Randomizers everywhere for quickly finding unexpected gems.

Kosmology Analog is priced at $65 and has an introductory price of $40 until the 18th May. For more information visit the Product Page.
