Heavyocity Media has partnered with Icebreaker Audio to release GRID II, an eight-voice synth sequencer, for Native Instruments' Reaktor.
GRID II takes a hybrid approach. Its two main modes enable use as both a sequenced instrument and a played synth, though it is neither directly designed for percussion, nor melody. Though GRID II produces a wide array of electronic sound sources -- from synthetic drums to morphing synths, from glitched noise to pulsing drones -- the instrument wasn't designed to be used as a tool to get a job done. GRID II was designed for discovery, for experimentation, and for creativity.
The instrument uses eight voices to produce its sound, but control over these voices was intentionally kept to a minimum. Instead, users control the relationship between the voices to sculpt the output. Complex patterns. Rhythmic synth beds. Abstract Percussion. The heart of GRID II is experimentation, and with over 100 diverse presets, it is intended to find a place in any genre.
