Soniccouture has announced the release of Morpheus, a new sample library for Kontakt 3+ and Logic EXS.
Named after the Greek god of dreams, the Morpheus is an aluminum percussion instrument made by the US company Freenotes. The instrument is modular - the keys can be rearranged in any order you like, as each metal bar is attached to its own tuned resonator.
The Soniccouture Morpheus instrument comes with 2 additional types of instrument apart from the natural version: Morpheus Generator and Morpheus Pad.
The Morpheus Generator is a generative music device built in KSP that creates repetitions (loops) that vary in length while a note is held down. You can have one or two loops active, and a loop will be created for every note you hold down. Playing simple sequences creates constantly moving, shifting patterns & soundscapes (not available in EXS version).
The Morpheus Pad uses a different set of samples, fully looped instead of the natural decay. This enables infinitely sustaining glassy pads and textures.
These can be further enhanced using phase offset, detune and doubling controls in the Ensemble effect section.
