Homegrown Sounds has announced Kosmology – Awakenings, an advanced groove sequencing instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Kosmology is an Advanced Performance Sequencing Tool in comparison with many other Kontakt products, it is not a sample library with a few bells and whistles, rather it’s a Music Composition tool which is bundled with a collection of sounds. Although there are a number of presets included, it is designed to be fun and to intuitively build your own complex grooves quickly.
In a nutshell you build up to 8 instances which can be switched and manipulated by a series of triggers in real-time. Each Instance contains a Pitch Sequencer, Velocity sequencer, 5 freely assignable Sequencers (from a list of 46 Destinations) and 48 Synth Parameters. Each Instance can have completely different settings and assignments, which gives an enormous amount of freedom for creating unique grooves.
The Awakenings soundset for Kosmology comes with 200 instruments, which are multi-sampled, using 4 samples per instrument at 24-bit using pure synthesis with very few effects.
Kosmology – Awakenings is available to purchase for the introductory price of $40 USD until March 18th, 2014 (regular $65 USD). Requires full version of Kontakt 5.3 or higher.
