Sample Logic (http://www.samplelogic.com) has released Metallix, a toolkit of morphed metallic instruments, percussives, atmospheric soundscapes, pads, and tempo-synced audio loops for cinematic music production. It’s based on recorded metallic instruments and sounds.
The instruments (presets) and clips (loops) are integrated into Ableton Live. Each instrument uses Live’s Rack format, with the eight Macro Controls mapped to provide top-level control for tweakability. This also means that all of the instruments and loops are ready to be mapped to a hardware controller or automated directly in Live.
Effects and parameters include: Attack & Release, Reverb, Filter Delay, Arpegiator, Filter Cuttoff & Resonance, and much more. This makes sound sculpting each instrument intuitive and easy. On top of this, all clips and presets are production ready, custom tailored and mastered using Live’s audio effects.
Metallix works exclusively with Suite 8, Live 8 or Live Intro and is available only as a direct download for US$99. It’s Mac and Windows compatible.
