Acousmatic Engine is a unique Kontakt library of conceptual samples combined with multi-dimensional synthesis forming imaginative and playable instruments; from the creator of Native Instruments Kinetic Metal and Kinetic Toys.
Probing the realms of Sci-Fi Noir, Lovecraftian Horror and Steampunk sound worlds with 500 surreal and thematic Kontakt Instruments, Acousmatic Engine provides characteristic sound inspiration with instruments ranging from the unique yet traditional to the completely unimagined, possessing unique sonic lusters and advanced sound design. Get ready to explore a deep collection of otherworldly sounds that will enliven film, game and music compositions across genres.
3 stylistic themes (Sci-Fi Noir, Lovecraftian Horror and Steampunk) are divided into 5 instrument types that include all manner of sonified gadgetry, gaslamp dissonance and thematic soundscapes.
- Aerophones: Wind instruments and anything that vibrates with air pressure.
- Friction: Resistance of one object/instrument moving over another to produce sound. Bowing, scraping, pad-like sounds, etc.
- Struck: Percussive sounds such as bells, pianos or anything that is struck to produce sound or noise.
- Soundscapes: Sounds that may or may not be tonal and give a sense of environment or mood.
- Machines/Movements: Arpeggiator and sequenced driven patterns or other movements programmed in the Warp Wheel.
Expert mode enables the user to explore deeper into the interface to manipulate sounds and create their own imaginative presets. Each instrument offers 8 channels of unconventionally sourced, dynamically layered samples plus 8 channels of multi-dimensional sampled synthesis. There are 3 pages of effects including Shape, Color and Ambience. Quickly and easily sweep through combined effects such as Spectral Filters, Distortion, Modulation and Spatial parameters using the visual XY Effector display.
In Performance mode, 6 Macros allow you to assign any parameter for individual preference and finely tuned performance control. The Warp Wheel (the heart of Acousmatic Engine), allows you to store 3 variations of each instrument and record automation of movements and transition effortlessly into new sonic dimensions, expanding the sonic depths and allowing the sounds to breathe and come alive.
Acousmatic Engine requires a free or full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or later.
