KORE 2, exp. packs ship

Native Instruments' second announcement for Friday is the release of KORE 2, what the company describes as a comprehensive instrument that melds the engines of ABSYNTH, FM8, Guitar Rig, KONTAKT, MASSIVE and REAKTOR. It additionally comes with a library of 500 new sounds, and a touch-sensitive hardware controller that allows more intuitive interaction. To expand the program users can combine it with KOMPLETE 5, or any Audio Unit or VST plug-in. KORE 2 costs $560, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 and a 1.8GHz G5 processor or better.

Another form of expansion is NI's new KORESOUND packs, which provide sample libraries tailored to particular genres, as well as the paramater mapping of the KORE hardware controller. The series is beginning with four "Best Of" packs: MASSIVE, which includes 200 sounds, Synthetic Drums Reloaded, which has 10 drumkits, 57 Drawbar Organ, and REAKTOR Vol. 1. A purchase of KORE 2 includes one KORESOUND pack for free; they are otherwise $60 each.
