A collection of Multi-sampled Instruments designed on a Virus TI now released for Sampletank.
These are a high quality selection of musically useful sounds which make the most of Sampletank via a series of 44 child presets for each instrument. These child presets are like categories which transform each instrument adding a ton of flexibility to the collection.
Note: If you use Kontakt this sample collection is available as part of Kosmos Infekted
The sample library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $20 USD (regular $35 USD).
Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Kosmos Classics, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
A huge collection of 800+ diverse sampled instruments for Kontakt 4/5 which is fronted by the unique Kontakt script called Kosmos.
Kosmos recreates a feature rich dual oscillator synthesizer where the samples become selectable waveforms. With a finely tuned randomization function it is possible to easily create unique sounds on the fly with very little effort, with either global randomize or the local randomizers of each section.
There is also a single instrument version of Kosmos for the original 800 instruments which allows the same degree of control.
The library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $20 USD (regular $40 USD). Homegrown Complete users can crossgrade for $10 USD.
Homegrown Sounds has announced version 2 of its Kosmos sound library engine for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Kosmos is a scripted Virtual Analog style Synth Script for Kontakt designed to be a front end for high quality sample libraries.
Kosmos has been re-written from the ground up for Kontakt 4 and 5. As well as looking much prettier than than Kontakt 3 version, it takes the Kosmos concept as far as it can go with over 2500 lines of code to create a true dual synth engine. It now includes 3 tempo synced LFOs to modulate individual Filter Cutoffs, Volumes and Pitch, as well as having separate controls for Waveform, Pan, Tune, Velocity, Env->Filter and Filter Type. Additionally the Sequencer has been rewritten and improved, it has 3 sequencers one for Play/Pitch, Velocity and Note Length all of which can have independent step lengths.
Infekted and Starburst have both been updated, as well as Infekted Lite (Note that after extracting Infekted Lite to your hard drive, you must run the installer for either Windows or MAC which is located in the extracted folder, this will install the images used by Kosmos into your Kontakt ‘pictures’ folder).
Kosmos Infekted is available to purchase for $50 USD until the end of June, 2013 (regular $125 USD). Updates for Infekted and Starburst are free to existing users.
Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Infekted, a Kontakt sample library featuring a large collection of multi-sampled instruments designed using a Virus TI and a unique Kontakt script called Kosmos.
Kosmos aims to create a dual oscillator synthesizer which uses sampled instruments as the Oscillator waveforms. It goes far beyond standard presets and has a randomization system built in for creating diverse sounds quickly and easily. The idea behind this is that it provides a much more conducive work-flow than scrolling through presets. Each Kosmos synth generally has 40-50 waveforms and each is capable of producing a massive variety of instruments.
As well as the Kosmos based synths, there are also categorised presets for each of the sampled instruments which all use a single oscillator version of Kosmos for easily tweaking the sound on the fly or through automation.
The collection is composed of 4 releases which are loosely categorised – Bass, Leads, Synths and Pads (Starburst).
There is also a free Lite Version of Infekted which uses 20 Instruments from the collection and includes a Kosmos synth using them.
Infekted for Kontakt is available to purchase for $125 USD.
A Group Buy has been created along with it’s launch so that the entire collection can be had for as little as $50 when just 50 people sign up. Futhermore when the number reaches 40 Virus Kits for Battery/Kontakt will be added and at 50 people a Kosmos version of Vintage Synths will also be added using Kosmos. It costs $25 to join the group buy and you will get instant access to Starburst.
Homegrown Sounds has announced Starburst K, an updated version of the sample library which now featuring the new Kosmos synth engine for Kontakt.
The new Kosmos engine for Kontakt, now available with Starburst.
Kosmos is a scripted front end for Kontakt v3 and above designed to create an easy to use dual oscillator synthesizer.
Besides being a front end for the Homegrown Sample libraries, the main goal was to move away from the idea of fixed presets inside Kontakt and to provide a simple method of randomizing new instruments on the fly, whilst providing enough controls to tweak the sounds to taste. This leads to a much more unique preset than using pre-defined presets and is a creatively rewarding way to work as opposed to scrolling through presets.
In essence Kosmos is an attempt to import some of the best features of HGS synths into Kontakt. It also includes a Gate Sequencer.
Starburst has been updated to include the Kosmos Synth Front End. The update is available to download for registered users.
The Radiance collection ranges from angelic beautiful landscapes in the region of Eno, Budd through to darker harsher sounds, Trans Global Underground and Coil etc… The sounds can be used for any project requiring an interesting flavour, and will be a great addition to any studio.
The library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $25 USD until the end of January, 2013 (regular $35 USD).
