Version: Kontakt 5.8.1 / NCW / V1.2
Kontakt Granular Sound Design
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
Tempus is a dual voice Granular instrument inspired by the audio space where tempo becomes pitch and pitch becomes tempo. There are 500+ sound sources in Tempus, and you can combine any sound source with any other.
It has 3 different play modes: Granular, Hybrid and One-shot
These sound sources were designed around the idea of rapid and repeated playing of short staccato notes, that are played so fast they blur into a single audio stream with an original and unique timbre. Tempus passes these sound sources through its sophisticated granular engine to produce an original and unique output, useful in a wide range of styles and musical genres.
There’s a wide range of intuitive and easy to use controls to sculpt and manipulate the output and how and where it will be made, as well as sends and voice effects and a unique gate system.
The FULL version of Kontakt5.8.1+ is required (NOT Kontakt Player)
Over 500 Sound Sources
Tempus featuers over 300 snapshots to get you started in the following categories:
- One-Shot Playback
- V1.2 Contains new samples and new snapshots/presets
The Voices page controls overall Volume, Pan and Pitch of each voice and includes our innovative Scene Management tool and holds the overall Sound Drift control.
Each sound can be played back in 3 different ways: Granular Mode, Hybrid Mode and One-shot Mode.
There are 5 pages of controls for the voice settings to explore.
Over these 5 pages you can choose the sounds, browse presets, change playback modes, adjust filters and LFOs and much more.
It also includes a creative MIX control where you can assign Vol, Pitch and panning settings and morph between them using the Mix control or automate the morph using the Walk button.
You have fine tuning over each granular mode and a full suite of grain length settings to tweak.
Also included are 8 Models which add additional harmonics to your sounds. These add new pitched grains up or down 1 or two octaves for a richer sound.
Send levels are also controlled here, with 4 sends per voice.
