Native Instruments have announced their Koresound Packs which they say are an affordable, ultra-convenient way to instantly further expand the sonic scope of the newly available Kore 2. They tell us that each pack contains a wealth of sounds that fully utilize the built-in audio engines and that every preset was meticulously programmed for use with Kore 2, sporting the following special features:
All sounds are based on one or a combination of the audio engines included in Kore 2, meaning you donâ€™t need to own the full product (i.e. Massive or Reaktor) to access its characteristic sounds.
All sounds are categorized for the KoreSound browser - making them immediately accessible and instantly usable.
The important sound parameters of all sounds are assigned to the hardware controller knobs and buttons for immediate, intuitive tweaking.
Every sound provides up to eight variations which can be morphed using the dedicated Kore morph pad or Kore controller, creating mind-blowing sounds and transitions.
Four packs are available at present - here's the NI descriptions:
Best of Reaktor Vol. 1 features 200 legendary Reaktor sounds with up to 8 variations per sound, and vastly simplified control via Kore 2.
Best of Massive features 200 of the greatest Massive synth sounds, perfectly primed for Kore 2, and featuring up to 8 variations per sound.
'57 Drawerbar Organ features the legendary 1957 Hammond C3 drawbar organ instrument, meticulously sampled and offering the complete range of drawbars.
Synthetic Drums Reloaded features 10 incredible Synthetic Drum kits, with 8 distinct variations per kit.
