Native Instruments (http://www.native-instruments.com) has introduced Paranormal Spectrums, a new Kore-powered instrument that creates “mysterious and unsettling” sonic atmospheres.
For use with Kore 2 and the free Kore Player, it’s designed as a resource for suspenseful film and game scores in the horror, thriller and mystery domain, and is also suitable for dark electronic music styles. Based on atmospheric field recordings, unusual sampled sounds and intricate synthesizer programming, Paranormal Spectrums offers an assortment of evocative pads and sinister soundscapes, as well as intense mallets, flutes, bells and synth sounds.
It takes advantage of the integrated engines of Kore 2 and Kore Player. It also combines the advanced sampling features of Kontakt with the versatile synthesis functions of Massive and Absynth and the sound processing capabilities of Guitar Rig to create deep, complex and charismatic sounds that can be efficiently modulated and brought to life, according to the folks at Native Instruments.
Paranormal Spectrums provides 100 KoreSounds with eight morphable sound Vvariations each, resulting in 800 individual sounds. Parameter assignments allow for immediate, intuitive sound tweaking in Kore 2 and Kore Player. Paranormal Spectrums is available for download in the NI Online Shop for US$79.
