Rigid Audio has launched a new sampleshifting cinematic instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Granulat features 170 instruments intended to cover strings, hybrids, pianos and a wealth of moving textures. It is designed to be ideal for movie scoring and sound design.

Rigid Audio Granulat

GRANULAT is our newest tool for cinematic sound design and rich, moving textures. It works by playing hundreds of small grains of audio and then shifting these in the sample range left or right.

You can use the modwheel to alter that shift amount or use any of the 9 tables to quickly add complex movement to the built-in sounds.

The great thing about this technique is that you can freeze a sound at any position in the waveform. This also allows for great manual noise and FX sweeps where you can determine the speed of the transition.

GRANULAT comes with 170 cinematic instruments, ranging from hybrid strings, brass swells to acoustic bell-like textures and vocal atmospheres.

Granulat is on sale for the intro price of $9.99 USD until June 14th, 2018 (regular $49.99 USD). Prices incl. VAT.
