Flintpope has announced a new instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt 6. Lush stacks three instruments to loosely model the tonal ranges of the bass, mid and top speakers of a studio monitor.
Designed with the small studio/bedroom producer in mind, Lush assumes a typical 25 key keyboard is being used.
There are eight instruments each in the TOP and MID sections and ten in the BASS.
The TOP and MID are populated with complex, evolving ambient samples ranging from very mellow, to dreamy, to slightly unsettling. All samples are made by Flintpope. The BASS does what it says on the tin with soft sine waves through phasers etc and some plucked double bass samples through various amp models for a slightly harder edge.
Mixing these together in various combinations of what Kontakt calls multis (.nkm) gives a wide variety of rich, fat and sometimes delicious polyphonic pads.
There are eight multis already preloaded but obviously the strength of this instrument is to mix and match your own variations in any order or combination you like. Two BASSES and no TOP? Why not.
Lush costs £25 GPB. You can save 40% on a purchase with coupon code 6wzkolm at the checkout.
