Sample Logic releases "Morphestra Generations" for Kontakt Player & Kontakt

Sample Logic has announced the release of Morphestra Generations for Kontakt Player and Kontakt.

Weighing in at over 16GB, Morphestra Generations is a collection of 1600+ morphed Instruments and Multis derived entirely from true orchestral recordings.

Created in association with Kirk Hunter Studios, Sample Logic say Morphestra Generations "brings the original Morphestra into a whole new generation of sound, creating a modern day virtual instrument that transcends ANY morphed orchestral/effectual sample library ever created".

Geared for film, TV, and game composers, Morphestra Generations includes ready-to-play psycho-acoustic sampled symphonic winds, strings, and percussive instruments and morphs them into a world where music and sound design collide. If you already own the original Morphestra, you can easily upgrade to Morphestra Generations, which also includes all the original instruments and multis from Morphestra 1.0.

Re-defined, Re-mastered,
Re-mutilated, Re-morphed

Sample Logic say they have gone above and beyond the traditional performance practices and recording techniques to create the new diverse instruments included in Morphestra Generations. Strings, Brass, Woodwinds, Symphonic & World percussion, Voices, Guitars, Waterphones, Animals, Warehouses, Tools, Machinery, and a number of unique World instruments were recorded in the studio and as field recordings then manipulated using Sample Logic's proprietary morphing and synthesis techniques to create new organic "never-before-heard" instruments and ensembles. All recordings were manipulated, morphed, and processed throughout the various stages of production, including the sampling phase, programming phase, and via Morphestra Generations' real-time customizable user interface effects and parameters.
