ArtVera Music has released ART Pyrite-K for Native Instruments Kontakt.
ART Pyrite-K is a Virtual Instrument based on ART Pyrite VST Synthesizer. It includes most features of the VST version and also some additional options. A user can create custom sound presets easily by using the "RANDOM" feature which can be used for all sound sources (oscillators) as well as for a special step sequencer.
ART Pyrite-K includes variable space Atmospheres, Pads, Ambient Atmospheres, Sound Effects & Rhythmic and Melodic Sequences sorted in three sound categories.
- Four sound sources (oscillators) based on samples. All samples are looped.
- Oscillators 1 & 2 powered by 24 basic multisampled waveforms.
- Oscillators 3 & 4 powered by 256 single waveforms.
- Two filters 24dB LP and HP (selectable) for oscillators 1 & 2.
- One multi filter 12dB LP/HP for oscillators 3 & 4.
