Kontakt Hub has announced the release of Helios, a Kontakt instrument featuring powerful sequencing and rhythmical blending.
Helios is an incredibly advanced instrument for Kontakt. Combine two sound sources and rhythmically swap between each sound or create rich evolving soundscapes with gradual modulation. Each channel has an additional 11 individual sequencers which can all be synced to different speeds to control a rich collection of effects in either a pulsed or blendable system.
That’s just the start!
On the second page is yet another set of sequencers which control master effects and 60 beautiful, custom-made impulse responses to further colour your sounds.
- Powerful Sequencing — Each sequencer has advanced controls which allow you to change the speed, number of steps, direction, offset, fade-in, nudge and loop individually per sequencer. Each sequencer also has copy/paste functions, randomisation and built-in presets.
