Homegrown Sounds releases "Kosmology Awakenings" - Advanced sequencer for Kontakt 5

Homegrown Sounds has released Kosmology Awakenings, which is described as an Advanced Performance Sequencing Tool for Kontakt.

Kosmology Awakenings is not a sample library with a few bells and whistles, rather it's a Music Composition tool which is bundled with a collection of sounds. Although there are a number of presets included, it is designed to be fun and to intuitively build your own complex grooves quickly. In a nutshell you build up to 8 instances which can be switched and manipulated by a series of triggers in real-time. Each Instance contains a Pitch Sequencer, Velocity sequencer, 5 freely assignable Sequencers (from a list of 46 Destinations) and 48 Synth Parameters. Each Instance can have completely different settings and assignments, which gives an enormous amount of freedom for creating unique grooves.

Wave Sequencing

The Golden Crown of Kosmology is the fact that it can perform Wave Sequencing which means that you can assign a sequencer to select the currently playing instruments from all the included Sampled instruments. Both Synth A and B can be targeted individually which leads to instant satisfaction, creating an original sounding sequence can be as easy as selecting Wave A/B in a sequencer and hitting the Random Button.

Globals

There is also a Globals section which allows affecting 25 Parameters at the global Level, which can be automated in the host. These Parameters can add or remove from the current values, so as an example you could have a complex MIDI track in your DAW which switches between sequences rapidly and then automate a slow movement on the Cutoff Global which will open and close the filer regardless of which sequence is playing.

Awakenings - The Sounds

With this first soundset specifically designed for Kosmology, the intention was to design sounds which were capable of producing Synth Pop and Electro such as Grimes, Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk. They were produced with Wave Sequencing in mind to provide a rich palette to build rhythms with, and contain enough movement to be good for sequencing the Start Offset. All 200 instruments are multi-sampled, using 4 samples per instrument at 24-bit using pure synthesis with very few effects. For for the most part they have the Filter Wide Open so they can be upfront and powerful, whilst they can be tamed easily using Kosmology itself. There are a few effect, detuned and drop instruments scattered throughout the collection to add some nice surprises and interests when Wave Sequencing.

Kosmology Awakenings is priced at $65 but is available for $40 until March 18th. Also included are Kosmology Instruments for both Kosmos Classics and Kosmos Infekted if you own either of these releases.

Kosmology Key Features:

  • 8 Instances that can be switched on the fly via MIDI. each Instance has:
    • control over 48 Distinct Parameters which include Cutoff, Resonance, Filter and Amp Envelopes Envelopes (Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release), Filter Envelope Amounts, Octave, Various A/B Tune options, FX Sends plus more.
    • Pitch Sequencer - Offsets the root note by -+12 semitones and can Tie notes and mute them.
    • Velocity Sequencer - Velocity in turn can be assigned to both Volume and/or the Filter Cutoff.
    • 5 assignable Sequencers - each of these sequencers can target any of the 46 available Destinations and can like the other synth parameters can be completely different for each of the 8 instances.
    • All sequencers have independent Clock Divisions
    • All sequencers have an independent Step Size (maximum 64 steps) which is great for Syncopation.
  • Dual Synth Architecture - each synth has its own waveform (sampled Instrument), Filter Type, Pan, Tune and Envelope Depth.
  • FX Engine:
    • Convolution Reverb -Uses Kontakt's Convolution engine with a selection of 50 unique Impulse Responses.
    • Standard Reverb - Also includes the older Kontakt Reverb which can work well in conjunction with the Convolver.
    • Tempo Delay -Stereo Ping Pong Delay with adjustable tempo based times.
    • Modulator - Has a choice between Flanger, Phaser or Chorus with adjustable LFO Frequency.
    • Echo - Can be used as a Comb effect (think Sabres of Paradise) or as a short non tempo delay.
    • Compressor
    • Saturation
  • 2 tempo synched LFOs - LFO1 has a selection of 20 shapes, and can target Cutoff and Volume individually for both synths A and B, and Pitch B. LFO 2 is dedicated to the main Cutoff and locked to a RAMP shape and is great for the classic Rhythmic Sound.
  • Wave Sequencing – it is possible to target both synth destinations independently to switch waveforms on a step by step basis which leads to extremely sophisticated Sequences with very little effort.
  • Integrated Preset Browser and ability to save Presets and Templates.
  • Rescalers – Force notes to a Scale for each Note of the Octave.
  • Randomizers – You can randomize everywhere.
  • Large Screen editor – Allows working on the Pitch plus any other sequencer for easy Editing when needed.
  • 15 Timing Based Triggers for Live Manipulation including Freeze Pitch, Freeze Waveforms, Half Step, Double Step, Mute, Reverse, Max Note Length, Min Note Length plus more.
  • 25 Global Parameters for Automating across all Instances or radically transforming a Preset on the fly.
  • 3 Mod Triggers - You can offset up to 9 Parameters for each of these triggers for an instant remix via the assigned MIDI Keys.
  • -+1 Octave Triggers
  • Easy and Intuitive Workflow
  • Download Size - 700MB.
  • Minimum Requirements - Native Instruments Kontakt 5.3 Full Version (will only work in Kontakt player for 15 minutes).
