Native Instruments Introduces ACOUSTIC REFRACTIONS

Bookmark and Share

Berlin, Germany /Music Industry Newswire/ — Native Instruments today introduced ACOUSTIC REFRACTIONS, a new KORE SOUNDPACK that combines organic and synthetic qualities in innovative and inspiring ways. Based on unusual acoustic sample material and brought to life through advanced sound programming, this new library for KORE 2 and the free KORE PLAYER provides charismatic, highly original instruments for any musical project that benefits from weird and wonderful tones and textures.

ACOUSTIC REFRACTIONS was created in collaboration with prolific sound design artist Jeremiah Savage, who carefully recorded an assortment of unusual acoustic samples from “everyday objects” as the starting point. The sonic raw material at the heart of this KORE SOUNDPACK comes from items such as light bulbs, blocks of ice, washing machines, spray cans, shredded paper, water, glass and stones, and even the Golden Gate Bridge. This source material is intricately processed through the powerful KONTAKT sample engine integrated in KORE 2, which renders the sounds into fluid, atmospheric instruments that are highly playable despite their unusual sonic origin.

ACOUSTIC REFRACTIONS includes 100 individual KoreSounds, complete with morphable Sound Variations for added sonic variety and concise parameter assignments for immediate, intuitive sound tweaking in KORE 2 and KORE PLAYER. Full musical metadata for all presets also makes ACOUSTIC REFRACTIONS integrate seamlessly with any individual collection of KORE SOUNDPACKS.

ACOUSTIC REFRACTIONS is available for download purchase in the NI Online Shop for $79 / 69 EUR.
