Welcome to the world of BOLTx Volume 2.

Machinery, synthesis, studio and field recordings make up this collection of loops. Each loop set is rendered with the full loop, minus hats, and then the individual components.

Volume Two of BOLTx is composed at the tempos 70, 120, and 130bpm, providing a large span of feelings to explore. Each tempo is packed in it's own folder, making it easy to navigate the data set.

The loops are provided in industry standard WAV, Apple Loops AIF, and REX2 Format. Just drop some BOLTx in a track and you are on your way to building something new. All content is 24bit / 44.1khz.

COBALT BLUE - For Kontakt 4 or Greater

Cobalt Blue is a collection of timbres for film, Post, Video Games and general Multimedia Sound Design. Inspired by metal ore and processed with the most pristine hardware granulator on the market, these timbres are moody, mysterious, and blue. They are truly abstract effects.

Source material ranges from metal impacts, scrapes, data taps, voice, synthesis, and all around found sounds to provide a diverse range of tones and timbres for use as percussive accents, beds, drones and pads.

Patches are programmed to give the most of each oscillator set. Heavy modulations to subtle adjustments make this an asset to professional sound designers, and modern composers alike.

Listen to the demo material for a glimpse of what is included.

WAVEFRONT for KONTAKT
From the acclaimed WaveFront ReFill, comes WaveFront Volume One for Kontakt 3 or greater. The original data archive was remastered, and the resulting Volume One includes much of the original WaveFront, but includes new bonus material as well. The first half of Oxide Kits is also included as bonus kits, just like in the original release.

While WaveFront Volume One is based on the original master data, it is not a clone of the first release, it is a reworking of the core data, yet still offering a similar feel and programming style in the Kontakt format.

Four Gigabytes of oscillators at 24 bit depth, not only offer a great variety of presets, but a useful base for custom programming. Building custom Multi patches is encouraged, and plenty of preset Multis will get you started in exploring massive and lush soundscapes, pads, leads, basses, noises, kits and FX.

While the original WaveFront ReFill remains in high regard, some things just can not be duplicated. This is the reason for the volume structure. Volume One includes over 3 Gig from the WaveFront archives, plus 600mb of new content, totaling at just over 4 Gigabytes, WaveFront Volume One offers some serious bang for your buck, and offers wide coverage of often neglected areas in synthesis.

Currently no crossgrade options are available.

All waveforms are "original material", and not some knocked off  samples from the latest keyboard to hit the stores. Various methods such as vocoding, phase vocoding, granular synthesis, convolution, waveshaping, spectral resynthesis, and other traditional synthesis methods were employed to create the VAPOR waveset. AWARD-WINNING Programmer MARC VAN BORK has worked on a wide range of film and multimedia projects, so he knows what synth sounds composers need to add the right blend of powerful synth rhythms and evolving ethereal synth beds to their track.

NO SAMPLER REQUIRED!
VAPOR comes as a VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT which includes a high-performance NATIVE INSTRUMENTS interface powered by the efficient KONTAKT audio engine, including Direct-from-Disk*, for Mac and PC (*With freely-downloadable Direct-from-Disk extension).
