Native Instruments has introduced Ashlight, the third in their trilogy of Kontakt instruments exploring granular synthesis, along with Straylight and Pharlight.
“Ashlight concludes the granular trilogy with monochrome soundscapes, pulsing textures, intricate leads, and cold atmospheres. It combines a specially-recorded sample library with grain and sample playback modules in a powerful engine with intuitive modulation controls for scoring shifting intensities, from edge-of-your-seat sweeps, to introspective keys, and world-shaking walls of sound.”
- Real-time cinematic texture instrument designed for immersive atmospheres, pulsating bass textures and evocative keys
- Increase intensity and expression with specialized macro controls
- 320+ master Snapshots
- 263 grain source sets, 100 sample sets
- 4 GB uncompressed samples
Note: NI says that Ashlight needs a fast CPU to run and requires an Intel i5 processor or higher.
