Advanced Sampling Synthesis Library for Kontakt2

During their time with Yamaha R&D, sound designers James Thompson and Dan Powell were responsible for shaping the sonic palettes of such landmark products as AN1X, FSIR, VL1, EX5, Motif and Motif ES. Now, as Soniccouture, they have turned their programming skills to Kontakt 2. Fresh from working with Native Instruments to create the Kontakt Experience Library, Soniccouture have produced 64 brand new Sample & Synthesis instruments and 5 new KSP Scripts. Abstrakt Vol.1, features lush multi-layered ‘workstation’ pads, complex cinematic soundscapes, strange vocal textures, and evolving musical effects. The level of programming and user-tweakabilty in each instrument blurs the line between pure synthesis and conventional sampling, using Kontakt 2’s convolution processor, multiple filter arrays, effects, granular time stretching, and of course, KSP scripting. Included in Abstrakt Vol.1 are 5 new KSP script processors: Analogue Oscillators, Dub Delay, Shredder, Vocal Doubler and Tape Wow. These unique effects, combined with hundreds of bespoke designed samples, make up a state-of-the-art sound library that will be invaluable to anyone writing sound-to-picture, atmospheric dance tracks, and experimental genres of music. Available now on CD Price 35 Euros. More info:
