Precisionsound releases Hybrid Factory sound library for Kontakt

Precisionsound Hybrid Factory

Precisionsound has released Hybrid Factory, a sample-based synthesiser for Native Instruments Kontakt 4, capable of over 1,000 combinations of sounds.

With Hybrid Factory, users can make warm analogue emulations, aggressive digital tones, and imaginary electroacoustic instruments. The samples in Hybrid Factory were created by Iain Morland using a wide range of techniques, including resynthesizing acoustic instruments; physical modelling; granular synthesis; processing Foley recordings; FM synthesis; sampling old cassettes; and convolving instruments with one another. This gives users a varied and unusual palette for sound design.

Precisionsound founder Lars Westin said, “Hybrid Factory’s scripted Kontakt interface puts all the samples at your fingertips. It lets you see the waveforms with which you are working. You can shape the dynamics, apply filters, phasers, chorus and reverb effects, and add three different flavours of distortion.”

Hybrid Factory features

  • Over 1,160 stereo samples at 24-bit, 44.1khz quality.
  • 80 NKI presets, including basses, leads, keys and pads, demonstrating the capabilities of Hybrid Factory.
  • Twelve unique impulse responses.
  • A default NKI to use as a starting point for user patches.
  • The size of the sample pool is 1.77GB (1.32GB compressed). Thanks to Kontakt’s disk streaming technology, the samples use only 134MB RAM.
  • Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2.3 or above (Kontakt Player not supported).

Hybrid Factory is available to purchase for $69 USD (+$11 USD on DVD).

Precisionsound Sonic Laboratory, sound effect library

Precisionsound Sonic Laboratory

Precisionsound has released Sonic Laboratory, a toolkit of 500 sound effects, from brutal hits to evolving soundscapes, atonal clusters to retro electronica.

Audio designer Iain Morland took some of the strangest plucks, scrapes, thumps and noises from Precisionsound’s huge library of sampled acoustic instruments, then subjected them to bizarre processing to create evocative textures and effects.

The Sonic Laboratory files are intended primarily to be placed on the audio timeline of a music sequencer or video editor. The included sampler programs are for easy auditioning of sounds, with one program for each category of sounds (two in the case of the largest category). The programs for Kontakt 3 and 4 (Full version needed) display the name of the played file on the GUI when you press a key.

Sonic Laboratory features

  • 1.28 GB sample library, 500 stereo 44.1khz 24-bit WAV files.
  • The audio files are sorted into 9 folders by category, and each file has a unique descriptive name.
  • Categories: hits, mechanical hybrid, organic hybrid, pads and textures, retro electronics, reversed, stings, tonal – dark, and tonal – light.
  • 10 programs for all versions of Steinberg HALion.
  • 10 programs for NI Kontakt 1 and 2.
  • 10 programs with scripted GUI for NI Kontakt 3 and 4 (not compatible with
    free Kontakt Player).

Sonic Laboratory is available to purchase for $69 USD (+$11 USD on DVD), all formats are included.
