Native Instruments releases REAKTOR SPARK
Native Instruments has released REAKTOR SPARK, a new SoundPack for KORE.
REAKTOR SPARK is based on a new and unique REAKTOR ensemble, resulting from three years of design and development work by Native Instruments founder and conceptual mastermind Stephan Schmitt. This KORE SOUNDPACK breathes new life into the concept of the subtractive synthesizer, adding a dynamic and unpredictable element that causes sounds to ignite into living and sometimes chaotic entities. As the father of REAKTOR, Stephan Schmitt has designed REAKTOR SPARK as his very own statement in synthesizer design.
REAKTOR SPARK features
- Unique internal architecture – the signal is fed-back to modulate oscillator phases and amplitudes, and to create self-oscillations. The precise build of the instrument means that the smallest tweak can open a wide range of surprising and unique sounds, often characterized by an aggressive, percussive quality.
- 200 sounds plus 1400 Sound Variations, suitable for a wide variety of sound aesthetics from various electronic music styles such as IDM and electrorock, to jazz, noise and industrial. The distinctive character of this instrument covers aggressive leads, lively keys, snarling basses, fast percussions, enchanting pads and evolving soundscapes.
- Each sound has eight individual sound variations available through KORE 2 and KORE PLAYER, while the ability to morph each sound add even more sonic scope.
REAKTOR SPARK is available now as a download for $59 / 49 EUR.
