Sample Logic releases Morphestra
Sample Logic has announced the release of Morphestra, a cinematic virtual instrument for Windows and Mac.
Sample Logic’s award-winning team presents a powerful collection of creatively new and inventive organic instruments. Morphestra is derived entirely from orchestral recordings and psycho-acoustic sound design. In association with Kirk Hunter Studios and powered by Native Instruments Kontakt Player 3, Morphestra is an epic collection of over 27 GB and 1200+ instruments and multis delivered pre-installed on a pocket-sized Glyph hard drive.
Out of the box, Morphestra is ideal for film, TV, video games, electronic music, ambient music, multimedia genres, and much more… Its powerful instruments and multis stand on their own making it a “must have.” This makes creating an entire production possible without the assistance of any additional third-party instruments and effects. This “cine-organic” achievement surpasses any library of its kind. Rather than reinventing the traditional orchestra, Sample Logic has created a modern-day virtual instrument using effectual techniques. Morphestra includes: cinematic atmospheres, innovative arpeggiated/gated melodic and rhythmic instruments, thunderous percussive impacts, transition trailer effects, and dynamic rhythmic loops, and lush evocative pads, just to name a few.
- 27+ GB of over 1200 instruments and multis, divided into 3 main categories: Atmospheres, Instrumentals, Percussives.
- Atmosphere/ambient soundscapes and stinger construction kits.
- Melodic and rhythmic tempo-synced loops, loop construction kits, and arpeggiated/gated melodic and impact sequences.
- Single impacts, cinematic impact ensembles, and percussive kits .
- Morphed winds, strings, synths, mallets, bells, solo and ensemble pads and melodic instruments.
- Swipes, scrapes, and reverse transitional trailer effects.
- Performance-ready multis (playable interactive presets templates made from multiple instruments).
- All of these instruments are derived from orchestral studio and field recordings, many of which were manipulated, morphed, and processed at multiple stages of product development, including the sample production phase, the programming phase, and in real-time via Morphestra’s user controllable interface parameters.
- Pre-installed on a reliable and portable 80 GB Glyph hard drive (includes: Morphestra software, Kontakt Player software, 80 GB hard drive, FireWire 800 cable, USB 2.0 cable, Portable carrying case, External power supply).
Morphestra is available for PC and Mac (DX/VST/AU/RTAS/Standalone) for an MSRP of $699 USD.
