Native Instruments Announces Koresound Packs For Kore 2 – Kore 2 Now Shipping
Native Instruments (NI) has announce Koresound Packs, a new line of sound packs for use in Kore 2, their instrument host system. In addition, Kore 2 is now shipping. Koresound Packs are sound collections that allow musicians of various genres to expand the sonic scope of Kore 2, taking full advantage of its integrated sound engines and the advanced sound morphing, control and categorization features of the system. Four different Koresound Packs are immediately available, and additional collections with original content will be released in the future.
Equipped with six integrated instrument and effect engines from award-winnning products like Absynth, FM8, Guitar Rig, Kontakt, Massive and Reaktor, Kore 2 represents a versatile and expandable music workstation concept. The KKoresound Packs build on this aspect of the system by providing additional quality sound material that is immediately usable for professional studio production and live performance.
Each sound in every Koresound Pack comes with consistent parameter mapping for the high-resolution Kore controller, allowing users to fine-tune and tweak every sound quickly and intuitively. Up to eight pre-assigned sound variations for every preset also offer extended tonal depth and variety, and a complete set of musical attributes for the powerful Kore sound browser makes it easy to integrate the sound collections into an existing preset library.
The first four available Koresound Packs are “Best-Of” selections based on existing sound libraries of several NI products. This includes “Best of Massive”, featuring 200 KoreSounds taken from NI’s powerful next-generation wavetable synthesizer; “Best of Reaktor Vol. 1”, a selection of cutting-edge electronic sounds from some of the most popular and unique Reaktor ensembles; “Synthetic Drums Reloaded”, an assortment of 10 highly contemporary electronic drum kits; and “’57 Drawbar Organ”, a collection of sample-based sounds that represent a legendary tone-wheel organ, complete with individual drawbar controls.
