Cluster Sound has announced that its synth and drum sound packs for Ableton Live have been upgraded to support Kontakt. All Cluster Sound packs, mostly based on vintage synthesizers and drum machines, are now available for the popular sampler using two virtual instruments called Primus and Droom.
Primus is a Kontakt Synthesizer with a user-friendly interface and a solid set of parameters. The sounds included in each synth pack can be selected using the Waveform menu and then tweaked using 25 different filters with cutoff and resonance, one multishape LFO assignable to Filter, Volume and Pitch and two envelopes for filter and amplifier. Primus also implements a Glide effect, a Unison with up to 4 stacked voices and a set of built-in effect.

Droom is a Kontakt Drum Instrument sharing the same design of Primus but implementing a set of parameters dedicated to drum sounds. The sounds included in each Drum Pack can be selected using the Drum Menu and then tweaked using the an AHD Volume Envelope, two independent HP / LP filters, a Pitch Envelope and Warmth, Punch, Transient, EQ and Drive effects. The selected drum can be spread across the keyboard or it can be played regardless the incoming MIDI notes.
