QESounds has announced the release of the first entry in its QES Phoenix series for Native Instruments Kontakt.
QES Phoenix is a series of libraries based on 4th and 5th generation sounds – complex – layered – heavily convolved and granulated. The tone and feel is bigger and more aggressive than the ARFx series. All sounds originate from real world sources.
QESounds is known for slightly weird and subtly weird sounds. QES Phoenix steps it up a notch or three – with more notches to come. We’re throwing the kitchen sinks of sound design into this series – convolution synthesis, spectral and amplitude morphing, reversed/mirrored processing, FM and AM, static and dynamic granulation, pitch and time stretching, “motion”, stereo manipulation, layering, delay based Fx and more.
QES Phoenix is suitable for Film and Gaming soundtrack design as well as live venue.
The QES Phoenix is available to purchase for $59.95 USD (44.1 KHz) / $69.95 USD (48 KHz). Each QES Phoenix includes 10 instruments for Kontakt 4.23+ and 40 instruments for Kontakt 5.03 (Time Machine Pro).
