Precisionsound has released Jetstream 2, which they describe as a sound designer's tool bench for Kontakt. They say that, wrapping a library of natural and electronic loops in a single instrument, Jetstream 2 generates a wide variety of sound effects, including ambiences, drones, sweeps and hits.
Precisionsound founder, Lars Westin, told us, "Jetstream 2 makes you the sound designer. With Jetstream 2 you can create anything from abstract drones to glitchy electronics, imaginary animals to big booms, and even chromatic synths."
Users can layer and transform sounds with multiple filters, extensive modulations, and creative impulse responses. Custom mastering effects are built in for shaping tone, space, and dynamics.
Jetstream 2 builds on the concept of the original Jetstream library and features entirely new sound loops, impulse responses, and presets.
Jetstream 2 was created by Iain Morland, whose credits in audio design, editing and programming include over 100 virtual instruments, as well as film, theatre and game projects.
Jetstream 2 features:
Jetstream 2 requires the full version of Kontakt 3 or above. It does not work with the free Kontakt Player or demo.
Pricing and Availability:
Jetstream 2 costs $39 (+$9 if you want it on DVD).
