Organic Instruments releases "Elemental" Virtual Instrument Plug-in Creator

organic instruments

Organic Instruments has announced the release of Elemental Suite. Here's what they say:

After 13 months of development, Organic Instruments' tools for creating professional sample-based virtual instrument plug-ins are now available.

The Suite consists of Elemental Studio, allowing customers to design, build and publish their own virtual instruments in VST3, AU, AAX and Standalone formats, and Elemental Player, where users can load instruments from any publisher and use them for playback in their preferred DAW.

Elemental Suite optionally provides robust licensing and encryption capabilities, ideal for those looking to sell their instruments, and publishers are able to contact Organic Instruments to transform their creations into independent, white-label products. This release enables producers and composers to take advantage of a new and streamlined approach to building powerful virtual instrument plug-ins.

We know that many musicians, producers & composers have been waiting for a way to produce their own instrument plug-ins with a streamlined approach. As we release Elemental Studio & Elemental Player, we're truly looking forward to sharing a new way for customers to create VST3, AU, AAX & Standalone instrument plug-ins. Publishers no longer need years of coding experience, a team of developers, and considerable time & expense to realise their creative potential.

Whether it's creating the next best virtual piano, or designing unconventional & innovative sample libraries, it's a great time to share as we enable everyone to take advantage of the best new tools for virtual instrument production.

Elemental Studio

Elemental Studio is an application for producing sample-based virtual instruments.

Featuring an efficient workflow for mapping audio files to playable MIDI notes, Elemental Studio allows publishers to add multiple Sound Sets per instrument, with an unlimited number of samples filtered by Note Range, Velocity and Round-Robins. With support for advanced techniques such as additional FX samples for key/pedal depressions & releases and the ability to automatically transpose an audio file across a range of keys, even the most detailed and sophisticated instruments can be built.

For customers already familiar with other sampling systems, the Batch Import tool can be used to automatically import and sort sample files. Users can also easily configure the branding experience for their instruments by customising their publisher name, and curating colour schemes and images within their product. Optional tools to encrypt an instrument's audio files and require sellable licenses to play are built-in, ideal for any user wishing to sell their instruments to others.

Available itself as an instrument plug-in, Elemental Studio also features a functional real-time preview of instruments as they're being built, that can be used to instantly test new creations in any DAW.

Elemental Player

Elemental Player is a dedicated plug-in for the playback of all instruments built with Elemental Studio.

Elemental Player allows users to easily navigate their library of instruments, and load as many as desired into their DAW project. Every instrument features built-in Reverb, ASDR Envelope, and Dynamic controls, while also letting users assign instruments to different MIDI channels to craft and control customised layers of sound. Sound Sets can be changed via the UI, or from a DAW or external MIDI device, and a Transpose function is also built-in to the Player for easy pitch-shifting with a single click.

Elemental Player is available as a VST3, AU, and AAX plug-in and Standalone application.

Instrument Publishing

Organic Instruments is supporting instrument publishers with selling their products. All instruments produced with Elemental Studio can be converted into independent VST3, AU, and AAX plug-ins and Standalone application devoid of all Organic Instruments branding, through our white-label offering, Elemental Core. Additionally, all Elemental instruments are eligible to be published and sold via the Organic Instruments website for increased exposure to a wide-ranging audience of composers, musicians and producers.

Introductory Offer

To celebrate the release of Elemental Suite, Organic Instruments will be offering a lifetime discount of 33% ($140 $210) on all annual subscriptions for Elemental Studio until November 15, 2023.
