Los Angeles, CA (December 7, 2005)–Outer Limits is a new Zero-G/XFONIC virtual instrument powered by Native Instruments Kompakt and featuring a massive four Gigabyte core library of more than 500 unique soundscapes.
With Outer Limits, Ian Boddy’s follow-up to his Morphology Kompakt instrument, Boddy has delved deeper and darker into the unknown than ever before. According to East West, “Every patch in this fantastic collection will stimulate your creativity. The range of sounds this instrument is capable of is truly amazing, from shimmering pads, to mysterious drones, crystalline digital manipulations to dark distorted atmospheres, menacing mechanisms, evocative resonances, surreal sound effects, complex cascades, formant sheens, dark disturbing horror, analogue waves, amazing space textures, strange vocal synthesis and of course, sounds from the Outer Limits of space and time.” Users can layer 8 of these at a time to create complex soundscapes.
Categories include: Ambient Loops, Analogue Waves, Chamber of Horrors, Click & Glitch, Deep Space, Dense Soundscapes, Digital Drones, Digital Manipulations, Distorted Views, Heavy Drones, Machine Dreams, Minimalism, One Shot Synth FX, Outer Limits, Surreal to Real, Transcendental, Twisted Pads, Vintage Synth Atmos, Vocal Transformations and White Noise Atmospheres.
The whole library is presented within a new state-of-the-art plug-in interface by Native Instruments that combines intuitive handling and a capable architecture. It is a powerful version of NI’s Kompakt sampler interface, and it makes no compromises playing and performing sample-based instruments. Powerful multi-mode filters, envelopes, and LFOs give a wealth of creative possibilities. Integrated high-quality reverb, chorus, and delay effects give each sample life and depth.
East West also recently announced the availability of Peter Siedlaczek’s String Essentials, a comprehensive and ergonomic virtual string orchestra. Including quintuple alternation switch (Staccato, Quarter Notes) and precise control of the dynamic response of the samples using different MIDI parameters, String Essentials enables users to focus on their music creatively and easily. String Essentials is available at an MSRP of $399. For more information, visit www.soundsonline.com/sophtml/details.phtml?sku=BS-396.
