Signal by Output for Native Instruments Kontakt Review

 Signal Review

Output, a relatively new content producer has recently been making waves with their well thought out and stunning GUI designs, inventive Kontakt scripting and genuinely evocative sonic content.

Their latest product SIGNAL doesn’t disappoint with its over 40 GB of content and beautifully intuitive interface.

Consisting of 4 “Pulse” engines the user has full control over unique rhythmic layered synthesis.

build in layering of both synthetic sound sources and acoustic recorded sources allow for interesting textures.

the 4 macro controls vary from patch to patch and give quick control of some of the most interesting sonic sculpting features. For those of us that like to dive deeper, there is also an advanced edit mode that gives you full control.

the Rythmic aspect of Signal really sets it apart by giving you complex LFO patterns, a step sequencer per part, Arpegiators, and an interesting Looper effect that lets you loop sections of the sound source to interesting effect.

These rhythms can all be tempo sync’d and utilized to create deep syncopated patterns, Lush evolving textures and even sharp biting leads and basses.

Of course all of this is up to the user, you can turn off these aspects if you just want access to the raw sounds, or you can opt to use any of the beautiful built in effects to sculpt your own sounds.

If you have the Full version of Kontakt you can even import your own sound sources.

Overall I really enjoy this library and it ranks up in the top 5 of my favorite Kontakt libraries.

definitely worth checking out.

Grey Forge “Dark Techno” expansion for Maschine

grey forge product

GREY FORGE delivers dark, brooding techno with expressive control for live performance.

Here we have the latest in a long line of Native Instruments official expansion packs.
This one is designed for a dark techno ambience and I have to say it delivers. The Sounds all have a really nice cohesive flavor to them. One shots ring out with a nice tail and give you a damp dark feeling. Emotive drums that really remind me of just down in the dumps kinda days and the percussion sounds are very easy to mix.

Here are the details at a glance:

Full MASCHINE projects 9
Included Drum Kits 45 kits (14 drum synth kits with custom, pre-mapped macro controls)
Drum Synth presets 230
MASSIVE presets 40
Download size 146 MB
System requirements MASCHINE STUDIO /MASCHINE /MASCHINE MIKRO 2.0 or higher,
MASSIVE (1.3.1 or higher).

all for only $49.00

Not bad for such easily usable sounds. Highly recommended.

Dominant Drums Teaser!

This new maschine expansion has been a labor of love. Drums were recorded in a variety of settings using both traditional kits as well as “found sound” kits. The drums were then processed through a variety of outboard gear and optimized for usage in todays top drum sequencing software with a special focus on Native Instruments Maschine.

The Expansion pack is available for both Maschine 1.8 and 2.x format also as individual wav files that are organized by category( kick, snare, etc)
All sounds are individually tagged for easy browsing.
Each kit is mapped out with finger drumming in mind!
