(Native Instruments | Posted 2008-06-11)
Native Instruments today released
FM8 TRANSIENT ATTACKS, a new collection of highly expressive
synthesizer sounds for use in FM8 as well as in KORE 2 and the free
KORE PLAYER. Carefully created by FM sound design specialists, the
200 distinctive new presets in this KORE SOUNDPACK are specifically
tailored for the sound aesthetics of modern electronic music production.
FM8 TRANSIENT ATTACKS takes full advantage of the innovative
features of KORE, and of the outstanding synthesis engine of Native
Instruments’ acclaimed FM8 software synthesizer.
FM8 TRANSIENT ATTACKS translates the unique sonic potential of
advanced FM synthesis into a versatile sound collection full of character
and edge. The arsenal ranges from lead, bass and pad sounds to
percussion, mallets, soundscapes and beyond. With their highly dynamic,
digital, gritty, metallic and sometimes experimental nature, the sounds in
FM8 TRANSIENT ATTACKS make an intense acoustic impact while
always keeping a strong focus on playability. All sounds are equipped
with full metadata for efficient access via the KORE Sound Browser.
For even more sonic flexibility, FM8 TRANSIENT ATTACKS utilizes both
the Morph Square feature of the FM8 engine as well as the Sound
Variations of KORE, allowing producers to easily and expressively animate
and mutate the character of any sound within a wide area. Within the
KORE 2/KORE PLAYER interface, every preset presents an individual
control page that gives direct access to its crucial sound parameters, for
immediate and intuitive sound shaping and tweaking.
