Homegrown Sounds has released version 1.3 of its Kosmos products, a major update bringing Kontakt 5 specific Presets, a new advanced sequencer and a few other enhancements.

The Kosmos Sequencer has had a massive upgrade and is now possibly one of the most complex Sequencers for Kontakt out there.

It features 8 separate Instances which can be switched in realtime via midi notes. Each Instance contains a sequencer for Pitch, one for Velocity and 5 freely assignable sequencers which can be assigned to a large array of Destinations. Each Sequencer has its own step amount so that for example, pitch could be 8 steps, and another sequencer assigned to Cutoff could be 12.

All 8 instances are unique and so can all have different destinations, Tempos and step lengths.

Homegrown Sounds has also released Kosmonaut, a free collection of 60 Kosmos Instruments for Kontakt 4 or 5.

Kosmos is a set of scripts which create a virtual synthesizer and advanced Sequencer. I’ve been working on the new sequencer for the last couple of months which has been a massive endeavor! The result is a very creative and sophisticated sequencing system that is a lot of fun to use, and great for jamming.

Kosmonaut features

  • 60 Single Presets for Kontakt 5 (also for Kontakt 4).
  • Each Single Preset uses the Kosmos Synth front end, as well as featuring an amazing 8 x 7 sequencer with assignable destinations and a sophisticated Scale Remapper (Kontakt 5 only).
  • Kosmonaut Full Kosmos Instrument – Uses all 60 instruments to create a classic dual oscillator synth with lots of modulation possiblities, 2 filters etc…
  • The instruments are taken from Kosmos Classics and Kosmos Infekted.

Kosmonaut is a free download at Homegrown Sounds. Requires full version of Kontakt.
