Product Overview

Blackout is an extremely lightweight loop-based pulse engine for the Kontakt 5 Engine.

It is designed to be as easy-to-access as possible, providing 3 octaves of time-synced synthetic pulses for adding tension and rhythm to any track. It also includes a built-in filter (automatable and mapped to the Mod-Wheel), keyswitch-based pitch shifting, widener, delay, reverb, trash, crush and phase FX. All interface controls are automatable and mappable to MIDI controls using Kontakt macros. 

This instrument is not meant to be overly fancy or boast a massive library of multi-velocity sounds, it is designed to provide extremely quick pulse-based rhythms within a very small, compact and efficient interface.

V1.4 Update:

  • Fixed a minor clicking issue affecting some users.

The first audio example demonstrates how Blackout can be used to add a constant oscillating bass rhythm to a cinematic track. The second track is the same, only with Blackout solo'd to let you hear exactly what's going on. The following 4 tracks are example loops with varying effects enabled in order to show the versatility of the instrument despite such a small digital footprint. 


  • 36 Tempo-Synced Pulse Loops
  • Built-In FX

  • Keyswitch Pitch Shifting
  • Speed Adjustment Controls


  • Kontakt 5.8 or later (FULL VERSION REQUIRED - NOT Kontakt Player).
