Colourform is a Kontakt 5 library of atmospheric sounds. It features a very visual GUI that uses colours to represent layers of sound.
You can then blend and mix these colours in real time.
This concept allows you to explore the link between what you hear and what you see a lot more than standard knobs and sliders.
19 core patches, each with 12 layers of sound.
76 total .NKI patches (57 presets)
Unique visual inspirational experience.
Blend 6 sounds together at once.
Atmospheric sounds made from abstract sources: pitchforks, glass bowls, creaky gates, spanners, rain and thunder, fire, water, miscellaneous metal, crt screens, bowed glass and plucked strings.
Randomise for musical outcomes.
Morph all colour wheels with the modwheel
Colourform has recently been updated to version 2.0. It features drastic improvements to the voice handling meaning it is better on your CPU. It also includes a whole new panel that contains ADSR, filter and volume controls for each individual layer.
Version 2.0 also has dozens more presets resulting in a total of 76 .NKI files. These are are great starting point for your colourful sound design.
This library comes with the powerful FrozenPlain Effects Engine. It features 13 effects built into an easy to use interface. These have the power to drastically change the sound and are useful for sound design. Each effect has 5 presets and a selection of controls. In total there are: LP & HP filters, 2 band EQ, Atomise, Strum, Scatter, Sequencer/LFO, Arpeggiator, Distortion, Chorus, Phaser, Rotator, Tempo Synced Delay, Reverb.
Colour Based Sound
The core aspects of the library are the 3 colour wheels. These each contain 4 layers of sound that you can blend between, and arrange in any order you fancy. You can also randomise all of these colours, to get fresh new sounds at an instant.
The library is made of 19 patches each with 12 layers of sound, and 56 .nki presets. The actual sounds are from unusual sources such as pitchforks, glass bowls, creaky gates, spanners, rain and thunder, fire and more. I have aimed to capture beautiful tonal sounds from these items. They are then sometimes mixed with more synthetic sounds to create full, wide tones.
Another aspect of the library is the soundscapes, these are pads of organic origin layered with high quality ambiances sounds such as water, rain or fire crackle. In general, the library consists of tonal percussion and organic pads and atmospheres.
Requires the full version of Kontakt 5.1 or above.
A wonderful box of sound tools!
What a wonderful box of surprising sounds! I love the soundscapes especially. They're unique, interesting and quite diverse inits character. The whole thing is a collection of inspiring tools for the atmospheric and cinematic oriented producer. Fully recommended!
