ArtVera Music ART Pyrite-K for Kontakt

This unique Virtual Instrument includes most features of the VST version and also some additional options. It offers many variable Atmospheres, Pads, Ambient Atmospheres, Sound Effects & Rhythmic and Melodic Sequences suitable for all music styles.

ART Pyrite-K offers 555 sound presets (Instruments & Snapshots) in three sound categories. You can create dynamic sequences by using options in the modulation section and/or by using a step sequencer which offers the option to assign its midi output to one oscillator, couple of oscillators or all oscillators. You can also create your own presets easily by using the “Random” feature which can be used for all oscillators as well as for step sequencer.
