Related: , , Posted in news on May 30, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Kosmology Space, a collection of 200 multi-sampled instruments for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Homegrown Sounds Kosmology Space

The 5th Kosmology Release has arrived, designed with both Kosmology and Metropolis in mind.

In contrast to previous Kosmology Releases, Space is a more ambient soundset, the filter is less open and the instruments have been softened & effected.

They are also designed with the new Metropolis script in mind to create a Playground for making interesting Pads.

The library is available for the introductory price of $40 USD (regular $50 USD).

Homegrown Sounds releases Kosmology FreeFall & Kosmology updated to v1.2

Homegrown Sounds Kosmology FreeFall

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Kosmology FreeFall, a free Kontakt library featuring sampled instruments from across all Kosmology and Kosmos releases.

FreeFall is a completely Free version of the powerful Kosmology Sequencing System, which uses 110 Sampled Instruments collected from current Kosmology and Kosmos products to offer a free entry point into the world of Kosmology. Kosmology provides 8 completely separate instances which can be switched in real-time via a specified set of Midi notes. Each instance uses 2 synths with independent Filters, has 7 sequencers with independent clock divides and step amounts as well as 48 assignable parameters. The workflow is enhanced by lots of useful options such as copying, pasting and randomizing and a single instance can be copied to all Instances or to a specific instance. The idea is that you set up the 8 instances and then play them as an instrument as you would with any synthesizer, they are even polyphonic.

Also introduced with Kosmology v1.2 is the new script Metropolis which dispenses with the Sequencers and Rescalers, but keeps the rest of Kosmology. This is useful for playing the Kosmology Sampled Instruments as traditional instruments and opens up a new world of creative possibilities for the Kosmology Sample sets. Like Kosmology it works with 8 instances which can be switched on the fly and so can be used to have radically different sounds or provide subtle changes such as different FX or Filter Settings. It is completely up to you, all 48 parameters can be completely different.

To celebrate the release of Kosmology FreeFall there are 25 coupons available to get 25% off any of the Kosmology or Kosmos Libraries. Enter FREEFALL25 at the checkout to apply the discount.

Homegrown Sounds releases Kosmology – Analog for Kontakt

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Kosmology – Analog, a new sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Homegrown Sounds Kosmology - Analog

The sound of the Elektron Analog Four has entered the world of Kosmology. Even though the instruments are more on the experimental side compared to the previous Kosmology Releases, the end result is a quite surprisingly mellow sample set, filled with lots of movement and discovery when sequencing. These Instruments were designed specifically for use with Kosmology to bring some of the warmth and characteristics from the excellent sounding Analog Synthesizer which has it’s own very distinct character.

All 200 instruments are multi-sampled, using 4 samples per instrument at 24-bit using pure synthesis with very few effects. Whilst many sounds are chromatically useful, there are also plenty of FX instruments throughout the collection to add some nice surprises and interests whilst Wave Sequencing. Although Kosmology is not really about presets considering how easy and fun it is to make your own, there are Fifty Presets included and of course presets from other Kosmology Releases can also be opened.

The library is available for the introductory price of $40 USD until May 18th, 2014 (regular $65 USD).

Homegrown Sounds releases Spark Infekted + Easter Sale

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Spark Infekted, a sample library for Arturia’s Spark Creative Drum Machine, featuring 500+ Basses, Leads, Synths and Pads.

Homegrown Sounds Spark Infekted

The sounds are all designed with an Access Virus TI Synthesizer. The samples themselves are mostly musically useful as opposed to wild Sound Effects, and are categorized by Collection and type as Bass, Leads, Synths and Pads. By default the instruments have a short decay time although they are large samples and so can be played for a much longer time, and additionally moving the start position can change the character.

Inside Spark all instruments must be created within a project to be visible inside the instrument browser, and so the sounds are in the form of 53 Projects to house the instruments. Each Instrument has a parametric EQ inserted for ease of mixing when used in your own projects, and a template is also available which includes a standard drum kit for slots 1-9 followed by 2 Basses, 2 Leads, 2 Synths and 2 Pads taking up slots 9-16. This makes selecting instruments much easier as the categories are predefined and so the browser will automatically open in the correct category.

As well as Velocity based single instrument versions of each sound, there are also Dual versions which use Threshold Mode instead to use a different sample for High and Low Velocities. These pairs can be very useful and inspiring for creating more complex patterns from a single Pad.

The Template Project is available as a free download which includes 8 sounds from the collection to get an idea of what the instruments are like in usage. Extract to your Spark Library/User Folder to enable in Spark.

Spark Infekted is available for the introductory price of $40 USD (regular $65 USD).

Homegrown Sound has also announced an Easter Sale, offering 25% off all its products.

To celebrate Easter Homegrown Sounds is having a 25% off sale throughout April, use the code CART25% on the checkout page to apply the discount to everything added to the cart.

Homegrown Sounds releases Kosmology Evolution & Kosmology updated to v1.1

Homegrown Sounds Kosmology Evolution

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Kosmology Evolution, a new sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The Second Kosmology Installment has arrived, created exclusively for Kosmology, the advanced Sequencing system for Kontakt 5. In comparison to Awakenings it has a slightly harder edge, and also includes a few more FX type sounds with lots of movement which are inte resting when modulating the Sample Start Position. It was designed using a DSI Evolver and takes advantage of both the Analog and the Digital side of this amazing instrument. All sounds were created from scratch for this collection and definitely bring the Evolvers unique sound into Kosmology for Sequencing Fun.

All 200 instruments are multi-sampled, using 4 samples per instrument at 24-bit using pure synthesis with very few effects. For the most part they have the Filter Wide Open so they can be upfront and powerful, whilst they can be tamed easily using Kosmology itself. Whilst most sounds are chromatically useful, there are a few effect, detuned and drop instruments scattered throughout the collection to add some nice surprises and interests whilst Wave Sequencing. Fifty new Presets are added using Evolution which adds to the existing 70+ Kosmology presets (all Kosmology presets can be loaded into any Kosmology based Instrument)

Also included are Kosmology Instruments for both Kosmos Classics and Infekted if you own either of these collections!

Homegrown Sounds has also updated Kosmology to version 1.1, which is now available to download to Awakenings users.

Changes in Kosmology v1.1

  • Fixed a bug when randomizing the Synth Sections where the playing sequence would not update the filter type correctly until a new Sequence was triggered.
  • Added ‘Kosmology Lite’ Instruments – These use just synth A for a more spacious sound and use less CPU than the full Kosmology (better for intensive Polyphonic Sequencing). They can load the standard Kosmology Presets but anything relating to Synth B is either disabled or remapped.
  • Impulse response Type is no longer randomized when using the Global Randomizer for a single Instance.
  • Added 50 new presets for ‘Evolution’ – All Kosmology Presets can be used in any Kosmology Instrument, even though the samples will be different.
  • Added Load and Save buttons to the Browser panel to make Saving Presets easier without having to go into the Master Menu.

Kosmology Evolution is available for the introductory price of $40 USD (regular $65 USD).

Homegrown Sounds releases Sequlation for DSI Evolver

Homegrown Sounds Sequlation for DSI Evolver

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Sequlation, a soundset for the DSI Evolver synthesizer.

Sequlation is a set of 128 Presets for the Dave Smith Instruments Evolver with the intention of providing a professional & creative set of musically useful Sequences. The Evolver can be a wild beast capable of extreme insanity, this collection sets out to prove it also has a calmer musical side, but of course each preset can easily be coaxed back to the brink if you so wish. The Sequences cover a broad spectrum of styles, and are also excellent starting points for adapting to your own style. Aftertouch and Mod Wheel assignments are used throughout for real time manipulation.

3 different Sysex files are provided of the Bank which use either Sequence Mode, Gate Re-trigger Mode or Gate Mode respectively depending on which mode you prefer. The Bank will be loaded into Bank B, so be sure to backup your old bank first if uploading directly. It can be uploaded to the Evolver using your usual method such as Midi-Ox or the Sound Tower application etc…

The soundset is available to purchase for the introductory price of $20 USD until April 2nd, 2014 (regular $35 USD).

Homegrown Sounds releases Kosmology – Awakenings for Kontakt

Homegrown Sounds has announced Kosmology – Awakenings, an advanced groove sequencing instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Homegrown Sounds Kosmology
The new Kosmology for Kontakt features Wave Sequencing.

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.
