Sample Logic has announced Cinematic Guitars Infinity, a new sample library collection for Kontakt and Kontakt Player.
After years of honing the art of cinematic sound creation, Sample Logic now brings you their most powerful Cinematic Virtual Instrument collection, an all inclusive collection of four sample libraries in one: CG1, CG2, CG3, & Infinity.
Powered by Native Instruments Kontakt Player, this definitive collection advances the legacy of the Cinematic Guitars family by including the complete versions of Cinematic Guitars 1 and 2, while sporting two completely new and original sample libraries, Cinematic Guitars 3 and Infinity.
CG3 is forged from all new samples recorded by guitar hero Steve Ouimette. Infinity is an amalgamation of the CG trilogy, incorporating all of the samples from each CG library as its source material making it the cornerstone of Cinematic Guitars Infinity. If massive, dramatic, cinematic sounds are called for, Cinematic Guitars Infinity could be the solution.
Infinity: Cinematic Virtual Instrument
Inspired by the principles of synthesis and sampling, Infinity aims to "redefine the way you design, implement, and morph instruments for music and sound design". Expanding on the architecture of Sample Logic's atmosphere instrument, Xosphere, Infinity provides tools to simultaneously morph up to 8 unique "sound sources" running through 4 "soundcores". At the heart of this is Sample Logic's newest invention, the "3D Mixer", which allows for seamless morphing between the 4 soundcores intuitively. Incorporating Sample Logic's Step Animator and the Morph Animator, Infinity's new user interface is Sample Logic's most progressive design yet.
Infinity's Kontakt interface design allows users to experience the power of 8 simultaneous sound sources running through a dozen studio-quality FX, all controllable by animation-equipped XY sliders. This is tied together with Sample Logic's proprietary 3D Mixer technology, allowing the user to smoothly mix between soundcores by simply dragging the crosspoint across an XY grid.
Intuitive navigation: Sound Source, Soundcores, & Instruments
Start from the simplest seed element of a massive sound and work outward with Infinity's intuitive interface. All Sound Sources are loaded into a soundcore, each of which is capable of playing back two sound sources simultaneously, and is packed with powerful FX including reverb, delay, convolution, filters, distortion, and much more. Take the creation even further by using up to 4 soundcores simultaneously, allowing a massive total of 8 sound sources to be heard at once. In addition, Master FX can be applied to all soundcores.
Don't have enough time to build your own?
Infinity includes over 2000 sound sources, 1000 soundcores presets, and 750 ready-to-use instrument presets giving users over 2,400 trillion sonic combinations to work with.
XY slider & 3D mixer
Sample Logic has achieved what they say is a world-first by anointing Infinity with an XY slider and 3D mixer capability, in the process creating an instrument with infinite possibilities. Simply drag the crosspoint along the X and Y axis to smoothly blend between 4 soundcores. The 3D mixer is more than a balancing tool - its axis can be linked to soundcore and master FX parameters, and animated to power infinite creativity.
The Step Animator
Sample Logic's Arpology introduced the Step Animator technology, and now the Step Animator is back and better than ever. Create detailed 128 step melodic and rhythmic patterns and experience a level of detailed control - each step has 8 independent parameters to allow you to hear exactly what you hear in your head.
Easily create your own with Random
Sample Logic has equipped over a dozen parameters within the Infinity interface for randomization, allowing you to rapidly tap into over 2,400 trillion starting point combinations with creative effects. Simply arm the randomization feature, and prepare to fire. The interface's intelligent randomization technology will generate inspiring results.
