Version: Kontakt 5.8.1 / WAV / V1
4 Layer Synth with 'Spin' Engine
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
Epidemic is our biggest Kontakt library to date, with our most powerful engine to date. At its core Epidemic is a synthesizer, with the ability to load up to 4 sounds from a selection of 25 sounds - sound sources were recorded from a collection of legendary digital and analog synthesizers.
The innovative Spin Controls allow you to control how the 4 sound sources select fade into one another, and each of the sounds has its own full suite of synthesizer controls making Epidemic an incredibly powerful tool for sound designers.
Perfect for ambient soundscapes, epic bass sounds, dynamic lead lines, and much more. This is truly a synth library that anyone can utilize.

The raw sounds sampled for Epidemic were captured from the Genera Studios collection of digital and analog synthesizers. One notable synthesizer featured in Epidemic is a very popular digital analog-modeling synthesizer popular around the year 2,000 (i'm sure you can guess the one).
The sounds were captured as efficiently as possible, utilizing tritone sampling and choosing a perfect sample length to minimize the hard drive space required. Because of this efficient sampling the library is very fast, and we included the samples as wav files so you can easily use them outside the Spin Engine.
Tons of Presets - Collaboration
To show you the potential of what Epidemic can do, we teamed up with three excellent musicians and sound designers to create over 110 presets. Jetfire Prime, Greta Link and Franklin Vanderhyde contributed incredible patches that compliment the patches we came up with, and pushed the instrument into new sonic landscapes we never thought of. They also created the amazing demo tracks on this page.

THE SPIN ENGINE
The spin engine allows you to control how the 4 loaded sound sources 'spin' into each other.
At its core this is done by loading a multi-LFO onto the volume control for each sound source, which allows you to control the wave-shape and the phase of each LFO. By staggering the phases you can make the sounds 'spin' into one another to create a completely new evolving sound - this gives a seemingly infinite amount of possibilities, so you'll never run out of ways to utilize the sounds. Combine this with the insane number of controls included in Epidemic and you have a true powerhouse of a Kontakt library.
