Native Instruments has released KINETIC TOYS for Kontakt
Software plug-in giant Native Instruments is releasing a new instrument for Kontakt known as KINETIC TOYS. If you’re anything like me, the name alone has you interested. It includes over 200 sound sources that range from children’s toys, games, and “even snacks” to “custom synthesized tones” and “playable hybrid” patches. We loved sound designer Jeremiah Savage’s KINETIC METAL instrument for Kontakt and can’t wait to go hands on with this new children’s toy box of sounds.
Sounds in KINETIC TOYS range from clockwork robots, train sets, and bunsen burners to ping pong balls, pinball machines, and popcorn. This box of treats overflows with 35 themed sound sets, each with eight dynamically mixable toy and synthesized sounds, and manipulated by up to four effects. Both sounds and effects can be manually assigned, ready for modulation and morphing.
