Castle-Instruments has released Volt II for the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 and higher.
Castle-Instruments say Volt II is packed with deeply sampled and highly playable sounds including hard hitting and gritty bass sounds, ethereal pads and strings, arpeggios, distorted other-world textures, alien atmospherics and dreamy uplifting chordal synths.
Volt II uses the Volt Meter controller which allows for multiple dial manipulations on the interface with just one dial movement. Essentially the Volt Meter is an advanced Macro. Assign your mod wheel to the Volt Meter automate the parameters on the fly.
Volt II is suitable for all kinds of electronic music from ambient, abstract electronica to Techno and is also great for writing breakdowns for your next electronic masterpiece. It comes with over 130 snapshots presets and a collection of Multis.
Volt has a special Volt Meter dial that is the centre of the action. Most of the controls on the front panel can be controlled by the movement of the Volt Meter. Simply select from the front panel which controls are to be controlled by Volt Meter and then select the depth/range of the control - Moving the voltmeter will then control those active dials. You can also assign the Volt Meter to your Modwheel or any other external controller dial and control many dials with the Volt Meter.
Most of the included snapshots have already been setup to respond to the Volt Meter.
It is easy to create new patches with Volt, and by clicking the Volt symbol in the centre of the interface you can randomise patches and let the chaos of the universe play a hand in the sounds you make.
Intro Price: £16 (Reg. £32).
