Samples inspired by science fiction

Native Instruments has released Sonic Fiction, a new Kore instrument featuring "otherworldly" samples. The software provides a variety of field recordings such as volcanic mudpots and television static, among others. Users can select a sample and apply the synthesis and sound processing functionality of Absynth, Kontakt and Kore engines.

Sound content has been gathered by Jeremiah Savage, the sound designer behind NI's Acoustic Refractions instrument. The latest samples are said to have been inspired by concepts and scenarios from science fiction literature and film. Each of the 100 instruments can be manipulated using eight sound variations and 24 parameters available through the company's free Kore Player software.

Sonic Fiction is now available directly from the company for 69 or $79 USD.
