Native Instruments has announced the release of Mallet Flux, a new instrument library for Kontakt 6 and Kontakt 6 Player in collaboration with Sonuscore.
The instrument enables users to instantly produce intricate sequences based on tonal mallet percussion, including glockenspiel, celesta, xylophone, vibraphone, and marimba.
MALLET FLUX features an innovative sequencer and playing engine that helps generate ideas fast, turning the simplest drafts into evocative arrangements for soundtracks, scores, and more.
MALLET FLUX helps composers, producers, and other musicians start creating right away. Users can begin with 270 predesigned arpeggios, sequences, and single hits in multi-instrument arrangements. These presets can be fully modified to produce completely new patterns. Users can also take advantage of innovative Flux Engine pattern automation to create complex rhythmic phrases and arrangements by playing simple chords.
With intuitive mixing controls, MALLET FLUX lets users adjust the balance of instruments and add effects, including enhanced effects introduced with KONTAKT 6. MALLET FLUX also offers new high-quality room, hall, and plate reverbs that allow users to place instruments in a variety of sonic spaces. Through complex multi-effect chains, users can transform acoustic tuned percussion sounds into cinematic pads, drones, and other unique tones.
MALLET FLUX draws from pristine recordings of mallet percussion instruments, captured in a high-quality studio by the sampling experts at SONUSCORE. This award-winning team has worked on more than 2,000 projects in the videogame, TV, and film industry.
Mallet Flux is available for 199 EUR / $199 USD / £159 GBP.
