Native Instruments has launched Acoustic Refractions, a new Kore SoundPack that combines unique sampled material with advanced processing in Kore Absynth, and other sound engines. Acoustic Refractions has a 100 individual KoreSounds and comes complete with morphable sound variations and parameter assignments for sound tweaking in Kore 2 and Kore player. It also comes with musical metadata for all presets to help it integrate with Kore.
With this SoundPack, the creator Jeremiah Savage has taken everyday objects and turned into playable instruments. Some of these sounds include carpets being ripped, blocks of ice, spray cans, water, glass, stones, traffic on the golden gate bridge, and underground parking garages.
Acoustic Refractions requires Kore 2 or Kore player and is priced at $80.
