Native Instruments has announced the release of two new Kore Soundpacks - Deep Transformations and FM8 Transient Attacks.
Deep Transformations is a a new Kore Soundpack that turns Kore 2 and the free Kore Player into a creative sound processor for live performance and studio productions. Utilizing the powerful sound engines integrated in Kore, the new sound pack provides 150 sophisticated multi-effect combinations that can colour, transform and mangle any audio material in "inspiring and unexpected ways". The advanced control features of Kore make Deep Transformations an especially intuitive sound shaping tool for musicians, producers and DJs.
With the integrated engines of Absynth, FM8, Guitar Rig and Reaktor as well as its own high-quality internal effects, Kore 2 and Kore Player provide sound processing capabilities that are now fully explored with Deep Transformations for the first time. The advanced audio and MIDI routing in Kore has been used to construct a wide range of unique and unusual effects such as FM Sound Generator, Talking Ring Modulator, Artefact Creator, Enveloped Distortion, Formant Delays, Vinyl Effects and more.
Every effect processor in Deep Transformations is equipped with a clear and intuitive set of controls, which give direct access to all essential sound parameters and map easily to any MIDI hardware controller. Sophisticated multi-assignments and the versatile Sound Variations feature of Kore 2/Kore Player allow both smooth and drastic multi-dimensional changes in tone and texture using just a single controller knob or automation parameter. All presets are also outfitted with KoreSound metadata that make them instantly accessible through the Kore Sound Browser, integrating Deep Transformations seamlessly into any Kore Soundpacks collection.
FM8 Transient Attacks
FM8 Transient Attacks is a new collection of expressive synthesizer sounds for use in FM8 as well as in Kore 2 and the free Kore Player. Carefully created by FM sound design specialists, the 200 new presets in this Kore Soundpack are specifically tailored for the sound aesthetics of modern electronic music production. FM8 Transient Attacks takes full advantage of the features of Kore, and of the synthesis engine of Native Instruments' FM8 software synthesizer.
FM8 Transient Attacks translates the sonic potential of advanced FM synthesis into a versatile sound collection full of character and edge. The arsenal ranges from lead, bass and pad sounds to percussion, mallets, soundscapes and beyond. With their highly dynamic, digital, gritty, metallic and sometimes experimental nature, the sounds in FM8 Transient Attacks make an intense acoustic impact while always keeping a strong focus on playability. All sounds are equipped with full metadata for efficient access via the Kore Sound Browser.
For even more sonic flexibility, FM8 Transient Attacks utilizes both the Morph Square feature of the FM8 engine as well as the Sound Variations of Kore, allowing producers to easily and expressively animate and mutate the character of any sound within a wide area. Within the Kore 2/Kore Player interface, every preset presents an individual control page that gives direct access to its crucial sound parameters, for immediate and intuitive sound shaping and tweaking.
