Both generators share the same amp envelope, tremolo, timbre feedback settings and multi mode filter (lowpass, bandpass, highpass, bandreject, peak, Chamberlin lowpass, bandpass, highpass, peak, zOne lowpass, bandpass, highpass, peak, 303 lowpass, highpass and resonant filter). One LFO for cutoff modulation with 17 different shapes (Sine, Saw, Triangle, Ramp, Square and 4 of each based on Lorenz, Rosler and Ikeda attractors.

Particular-Sound releases Abstract Grooves 2 for Kontakt

Particular-Sound has released Abstract Grooves 2, an element loop collection made mainly out of granular samples using Native Instrument Kontakt.

Particular-Sound Abstract Grooves 2

Every loop was recorded in 24-bit/44.1kHz and sliced in the Kontakt Sampler to use them in your tracks.

Add your own kicks, snares or claps to the loops without changing the loop itself, this is possible because we left the space free in the element loops.

To make the package complete, we made 75 Multis. Multis are layered Loops using the engine from the Kontakt Sampler by adding different effects.

Abstract Grooves 2 features

  • 150 Main Element Loops (WAV Format).
  • 75 Multis.
  • Requires Kontakt v5.3.137 or higher.

The library is a free download, as part of the KVR Developer Challenge 2014.
