Cinematique Instruments Intros Downbeat Box

Cinematique Instruments has introduced Downbeat Box, a new sound library for Kontakt.


Downbeat encompasses a wide variety of music-styles. But it´s much wider than those terms of “laid-back electronic music” alone would indicate. DOWNBEAT BOX is a fresh and exciting exploration into this world – highly playable, this essential selection will be a wonderful resource for use in a broad range of music styles such as electronic, pop and score music productions

Downbeat Box offers 14 virtual instruments:

  • Ambient A (Sampled guitars transformed to a calm ambient pad, modwheel controls sound)
  • Ambient T (Deep evolving texture)
  • Gentle (Sinus sounds formed to a chary and careful background)
  • Insidious (Rude and nasty sound, controlling delay amount and feedback)
  • Maryn (Simple and effective short sound)
  • Maryn Arp-MW (”Maryn” with arppegiator, 12 available presets controlled by modwheel)
  • Meseno 1 (Short ambient sound, generated by the KORG MS20 )
  • MS20 Rhythm Bank (39 looped beats created with sounds of the “MS20 Rhythm BSH”-instrument, 1- or 2-bars, tempo-synced, controlling LP/HP-Filter, Delay and Reverb, each with free-assignable controller
  • MS20 Rhythm BSH (Bass-Drums, Snares and HiHat, exclusively generated with the legendary MS20 – like the old drum machines worked, seperate volume controller for BD, SN + HH and amount of distortion)
  • MS20 Perc Bank (43 looped percussive and tonal beats of the “MS20 Rhythm Perc”-instrument, 1- or 2-bars, tempo-synced, controlling LP/HP-Filter, Delay and Reverb, each with free-assignable controller)
  • MS20 Rhythm Perc (A bunch of noises, blups, slices and percussion sounds, exclusively generated with the legendary MS20)
  • MS20 Sin Bass (A classical pure sinus bass, very low)
  • Outta Space (Reminds of a thermin, moving the modwheel adds a real tape-echo-machine atmosphere to it)
  • Tranquilizer (Beautiful mystic pad, made out of several feedbacks, whistling sounds and some human tones, modwheel controls sound)

Downbeat Box is available now for 19 EUR.
