Kontakt Hub has announced version 1.1 of its soundscape tapeloop sequencer for Native Instruments Kontakt by Divergent Audio Group.

Version 1.1 of Chordscape includes some user requested features and updates, including start/stop playback using a keyswitch, MIDI assignment of mute keyswitches, an expanded range of re-pitch keys, and lots more.

The Chordscape ambient infinite tape playback machine was designed to create evolving modulated dark ambient soundscapes.

It is suitable for all sorts of different sound design scenarios and it comes with 8GB of sound designed content derived from acoustic instruments, natural recordings, sound design, outboard effects and synthesizers.

The unique feature of Chordscape is that it is designed to emulate a tape machine. Once you start the Chordscape engine running you can create movement by modulating and automating parameters as it plays. This gives incredibly unique evolving sounds that never stop!

Changes in Chordscape v1.1

  • Start/stop playback using a key-switch (either colored Red or Green) at the bottom of the virtual keyboard. MIDI note 31.
  • The Mute key-switches have been assigned to key switches MIDI notes 24, 26, 28 & 29.
  • The range of re-pitch keys has been greatly expanded to now cover 4 octaves.
