Rigid Audio has announced the release of its new Aquiver movie and trailer scoring instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The virtual instrument delivers 300 powerful, deep and soaring granular sounds.

Rigid Audio Aquiver

It is powered by a custom granular engine that can play hundreds of small grains of audio with no huge CPU impact. AQUIVER is ideal for movie scoring, underscore and futuristic sound design.

It features realtime recording of knob movements, a FX engine with bread-and-butter effects and a unique lock switch. Using that, you can skip through instruments while locking the current settings in place. Perfect for trying out different sounds without loosing current knob and/or effect settings.

All the parameters of the effects section can be modulated in realtime with one knob as well.
