Transport marks the maiden voyage of Refractor Audio brought to you by Klayton (Celldweller) as it ascends to the stars. Blast off to the outer limits of sound design with a Kontakt Instrument that gives access to over 2000 unique samples created by Klayton in the Celldweller Spaceship. Create new sonic worlds with Transport by combining 5 unique sequencers along with the Transport Probability Engine to mix, mash, and modulate them into new and exciting sounds.
Transport plays loops in an unconventional and unpredictable manner. It is monophonic in the sense that it will only play one sample at a time, despite how many notes are played. However, at its core sits the ability to take a chosen set of loops and let the Probability Engine randomly jump between slices of those loops at varying rates, all synced to your DAW. Slice "in order" to ensure your kicks, snares, and other accents always land in logical spots, or "randomly" to allow the Probability Engine to make your patterns more unpredictable.
After triggering one or more loops, create new variations using the 5 step sequencers which control volume, delay send, cutoff, pitch, and hold time. Sequence "in order" or "randomly" at a separate rate from the Probability Engine for constantly evolving rhythms that never repeat.
Other features include keyswitch presets for changing patterns on the fly, keyswitch tuning which can be combined with the scale quantized pitch sequencer for arpeggios across different chords, a keyswitch slice repeater and stepper, velocity sensitivity, sustain pedal compatibility, and additional controls for each of the sequenced effects.
Triggered, one-shot samples have not been forgotten in Transport, with over 600 sounds ranging from drums, to modular synth FX and cinematic impacts:
- 3.85 GB of unique samples.
- 5 Step-Sequencers.
- 101 Kontakt Instruments (NKI Files).
- 2000+ Samples in 24-bit, 44.1 kHz Audio.
- 1400+ Loops.
- 650+ One-Shots.
- Processed Drum Loops.
- Score Percussion.
- Synth Loops.
- Bass Drums.
- Frequency Generations.
- Gut Punchers.
- Live Drums.
- FX Loops.
- Synth Bass Loops.
- Falls and Spindowns.
- FX Arcade.
- Robo Talk.
Loop-based samples are divided into groups of 24 by key and tempo. Each group loads as a separate ".nki" file:
- 22 Synth Loop groups.
- 13 Processed Drum Loop groups.
- 10 Live Drum groups.
- 7 Synth Bass groups.
- 6 Score Percussion groups.
- 4 FX groups.
- 39 One Shot groups (varying number of samples within each).
How It Works:
Under the hood, sits the Probability Engine. Rhythmically teleport between slices, and across multiple loops, by holding 2 or more MIDI notes. Not only does the Probability Engine randomly choose which slices and loops to play at a set rate, but it keeps track of playback, so accented notes, snares, or fills, always fall in order, should you let them.
On the surface, users have 5 sequencers to control Volume, Delay Send, Cutoff, Pitch, and Step Duration. They run on a separate clock than the Probability Engine, and can sequence in order or randomly, leaving the rhythmic, sonic and melodic possibilities without limitation.
Other features include an advanced keyswitch presets function, keyswitch pitch shifting (in addition to the pitch sequencer, ) a slice repeater and stepper, velocity sensitivity toggle, and other pop-up controls for each of the 5 sequencer tabs.
In addition to the 1,400+ loops, you'll find 600+ one-shot samples comprised of drums, modular synth FX, cinematic impacts, and more.
