Sample Logic

Sample Logic in association with Kirk Hunter Studios has announced the availability of Morphestra 2 — a virtual instrument that morphs together psychoacoustic-sampled symphonic winds, strings, and percussive instruments using the company's Multi Core system to create "a dynamic world where music and sound design desirably collide".

Powered by Native Instruments' Kontakt 5 platform — both Kontakt Player (available for free) and full retail version (sold separately) — for Mac OS X and Windows with Standalone, VST, and Audio Units compatibility, Morphestra 2 weighs in with over 1,100 Soundsources; 635 Soundcores; 3,300 morphed cinematic instruments; and a 26 GB compressed sample library using Kontakt's lossless sample storage compression with all samples delivered at 44.1 kHz/24-bit.

Geared up for film, TV, and game composers, Morphestra 2 comes complete with 10GB of all-new sample material and also includes all of the content from Sample Logic's Morphestra Generations release — that's over 16GB of morphed instruments and multis entirely derived from true orchestral recording, as well as the multis from the original Morphestra.

Producing Morphestra 2 was a labour of love that saw Sample Logic going back to the core of Morphestra to create all-new diverse instruments for the latest release. Studio and field recording sessions covered a diverse range of musical instruments — including brass, drums, guitars, strings, symphonic percussion, voices, waterphones, woodwinds, and world percussion — as well as more offbeat sound sources, such as animals, machinery, tools, and warehouses. A number of unique world instruments were additionally manipulated using Sample Logic's proprietary morphing and synthesis techniques to create "all-new, never-before-heard organic instruments and hybrid ensembles". All recordings were manipulated, morphed, and processed throughout the various stages of production — both during the sampling and programming phases — using Morphestra 2's realtime customisable dynamic core user interface.

The user interface provides dynamic controls for complete realtime customisation. All 5000-plus presets are housed in a single Morphestra 2 instrument, allowing users to dynamically change many preset attributes on the fly to sculpt and design sounds. The interface includes dozens of fully-customisable effects presets with hot-swappable FX chain technology and all-new effects insert modules allowing the Soundcore FX and Master FX chain to be built and reordered in realtime.

The Multi Core system, a flexible four-Soundcore engine that allows simultaneous playback of up to eight Soundsources, brings Morphestra 2 to life. Sample Logic's proprietary Morph Animator, Step Animator, 3D Mixer — which allows for seamless morphing between the four Soundcores — all make a return, offering freedom to transform instruments and sounds into "ear-bending, evolving affairs with endless possibilities".

Sample Logic has equipped over a dozen parameters within the Morphestra 2 interface for randomisation, allowing anyone to rapidly tap into trillions of starting point combinations with creative effects.

Morphestra 2 content covers Atmospheres (continuously-sustained soundscapes that are static or full of organic motion); Instrumentals (Arpeggiated, Bells - Mallets, Keys, Loops, Strings, Synths, and Winds); and Percussives (Impacts, Impact Sequences, Kits, Loops, and Transitions).

Morphestra 2 can be ordered online and directly downloaded from Sample Logic for a time-limited introductory discounted price of $399.99, rising to $499.99 thereafter, from: samplelogic.com/products/morphestra2 (Time-limited introductory discounted cross-grade pricing of $199.99 is available to Morphestra Generations owners, rising to $249.99 thereafter).
