Homegrown Sounds has announced that the fifth Kosmology release has arrived, designed with both Kosmology and Metropolis in mind. In contrast to previous Kosmology releases, Space is a more ambient soundset, the filter is less open and the instruments have been softened and effected. They are also designed with the new Metropolis script in mind to create a playground for making interesting pads.

If you are new to Kosmology you can get Kosmology FreeFall for free.

All 200 instruments are multi-sampled, using 4 samples per instrument at 24-bit. Whilst most sounds are chromatically useful, there are also FX instruments to add some nice surprises and interests whilst Wave Sequencing. Although Kosmology is not really about presets considering how easy it is to make your own, there are fifty presets included and 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 plugin, Kosmology is akin to a hardware Groovebox with on-board 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 its own step size and can be set to follow the main tempo division or use its 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, in fact Kosmology excels at creating the unexpected via this method, but also provides ease when you know what you want to create.

Kosmology Space is priced at $50 and has an introductory price of just $40 throughout June.
