Native Instruments has released Urban Arsenal 2, its latest collection of sounds for use in Kore 2 or the free Kore Player software. The library was created in collaboration with urban music producers and sound designers, providing an assortment of groove material and instrument sounds for music styles such as hip-hop. The package builds from the original Urban Arsenal, with over 1,000 sampled drum sounds and 32 drum kits that can be tweaked and transformed to create over 15,000 variations.
The collection features material developed by CLP, Dobie, Montana Beats and ProjectSAM, and includes over 80 new presets with a variety of brass, strings, leads and basses. Many of the samples are specifically geared for urban music.
Urban Arsenal 2 is available for download from the NI Online Shop and priced at $120.
