KORE Player released

As promised, Native Instruments has released KORE Player, a scaled-down companion to its KORE 2 platform. The software lets musicians or producers play material from KORE Soundpacks through their host sequencer, or else as a standalone instrument. Because Player is based on the same six components of KORE 2, including ABSYNTH, GUITAR RIG and REAKTOR, all Soundpacks are supported; the software further comes with a basic library in order to get started. The app is a free 590MB download, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.

Being launched simultaneously are four new KORE Soundpacks. MASSIVE Expansion Vol. 1 includes 200 leads, basses and pad sounds; Best of ABSYNTH has 200 soundscapes, pads and keyboard sounds, while Pop Drums collects acoustic drum kits meant for pop music. Finally, KONTAKT Sax & Brass is a library of trumpet, saxophone and trombone samples, meant for jazz, funk and R&B. Most of the packs are priced at $60, but Pop Drums costs an additional $20.
