Flintpope has announced the release of Layercake, a Kontakt 5 instrument for sound designers.

LAYERCAKE is a powerful tool for creating interesting sound textures, comprised of a set of three samplers with four sounds in each, meticulously crafted to create audio spaces that move beyond the realm of mere pads, leads or basses. You get 16 presets that will get you started on a descent into madness…

Each sampler layer can be manipulated with up to thirteen controls. Add to these Kontakt’s five standard controls of volume, pan, tune, mute and solo and you have eighteen tweakable parameters per sampler. With 12 samples in each LAYERCAKE you have 144 possible combinations of sounds as a starter palette for a musical experiment.

And then you start to add your own audio…

LAYERCAKE ships with a short manual so that even if you have little experience with Kontakt you can start creating your own dense soundscapes. Or even some killer bass if that’s more your style.

Layercake for Kontakt 5 (full version) is available for any price including free. Donations are appreciated. You can also support Flintpope for as little as $1 USD per month at Patreon.
