KINETIC TREATS - Kontakt Libraries
Native Instruments is known for its powerful instruments and sound design collaborations with a number of different artists, developers and sound designers.
Kinetic Treats is a new and very interesting creative instrument developed in collaboration with sonic craftsman Jeremiah Savage. In this new Kontakt Instrument, released in December 2016, the instrument itself is based upon the sampled sounds of several classic childrens’ toys, combined with a variety of synthetic sounds in a very unique visual control interface.
In this tutorial, ADSR Instructor Stephen Ellestad walks you through the controls and concept of this interesting and musical Kontakt instrument, explaining the format and ideas behind the unique control system. Along the way, he demonstrates a number of instrument snapshots from each of the three instruments included: TOY ELECTRIC TRAIN, VINTAGE RECORD PLAYER MUSIC BOX and XYLO POLYPHONES.
KINETIC TREATS runs in both Kontakt 5 as well as the free Kontakt Player and is available at www.native-instruments.com
