Powerful 4 Voice Motion Sound Design Synth for Kontakt
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
Elixer is a powerful 4 voice instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt sampler.
There are 5 categories inside:
- The Lost Tapes
- All 4 In
- Dialogue and FX
Each category contains a selection of presets (snapshots). There are 199 of these snapshots available in total. You can use the snapshots as a starting point for your own sound design or as instant inspiration for your compositions.
Included are extensive randomisation controls. Each page can be randomised (Voices, Modulation, Effects and Movement) or you can randomise individual voice selections.
Elixer and the 'Motion' engine was developed by Divergent Audio Group with Erick McNerney providing the wonderful sound design elements contained therein.
Please note: The FULL version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or above is required - Not for Kontakt Player
A comprehensive onboard effects page is included with:
- Convolution Reverb
The randomise button will randomise all effects on the current page
Dedicated modulation controls gve you the ability to shape your sound just the way you want it. There are 4 LFOs and 4 Envelopes with 24 destinations to assign them to. Again, the randomise button will randomise the modultion control for the current page.
The centrepiece of the instrument is the highly creative XY blend control.
This control allows you to blend the levels for each of the 4 voices. We also added a unique Movement control which allows you to automate the movement of the XY control in exciting new ways. You can make the blend control move vertically, horizontally or in a circular motion on the movement page.
This allows you to create sounds that blend exactly how you want them to, in sync with your project.
The movement can be smooth and gradual or instant and choppy so you can set up gradual texture changes or even rhythmic pulses with this simple to use control.
The Movement panel belnd control can be dragged with your mouse while the automation engine plays in real time or you can use the sliders along the edges for precise control. You can also assign midi cc or host automation parameters to the sliders to create complex movements and record the results in your DAW
lots of potential, can sound as terrible as you want, in a good way
I spent a good hour on it after downloading and there is lots of potential and many modulations options. My only complaint is that I wish the samples were longer, especially with the dialogues
