Deep Ambient Pads

Cinematique Instruments releases Gecko Kaleidoscope for Kontakt      18/02/14

Cinematique Instruments tells us that their Gecko Kaleidoscope is a new member of the Gecko family. The concept of Gecko is based on the simultaneous use of up to 6 sounds - each of them can be loaded into sound slots. The company says that Gecko Kaleidoscope provides 38 nicely prepared sound sources, allowing lots of possibilities.

A spokesperson told us, "Gecko Kaleidoscope is a wonderful tool for big and deep motion pads and background ambients. It covers a wide range, from bright electronic ambients to spheric string textures, over deep background pads to fx sounds. All these sounds will be useful and inspiring for your work. They will fit into many styles of music and will give your piece of music a special kind of depth and richness!"

Here's a description in Cinematique Instruments' own words:

Our major goal was the creation of deep ambient pads and mellow spheres. In order to forfill the needs of complex pads we pushed the Gecko concept a little bit forward.
Now, each of the six slots is equipped with a separate pitch, high- and lowpass filter, reverb and delay knob. Beside the Fly Table feature we now included the ability of moving frequencies for the master low- and highpass filter. Furthermore we increased the amount of sound sources from about 20 to 38 sounds. The sound sources are divided into 3 groups :

  • an organic area with feedbacks, distortions, bells, solo violins or bowed strings
  • a keys area with sounds from old classical synthesizers
  • an fx area with noise, hizz, crackle and field recording

All this improvements raised the amount of presets up to 43.

Pricing and Availability:
46 Euro
