Unique rhythm loops, instruments & samples produced by award winning sound designers
Please note you will need the full version of Kontakt to use the Kontakt patches in this library.
Altered States provides over 4GB of world-class uniquely creative rhythm loops, instruments & samples produced by multi award winning sound designers Ian Boddy, Cuckooland, and others. Conceived as a soundtrack composer´s dream library, it´s the product of thousands of hours of extremely organic, unique, ultra-creative, and virtuoso sound design.
Altered States is a wonderful and inspiring sample library featuring a vast and unique palette of sounds from out of this world, that will inspire you for years to come. This goldmine of creativity is absolutely massive (over 4 Gb in total, with around 3500 .nki instrument patches and thousands of unique source sounds in WAV format). The diversity and flexibility of this remarkable resource simply has to be experienced to be believed.
In the rhythm department of this enormous library, there are thousands of loops and all are presented either in sliced format or timestretch format (via the Kontakt/Intakt instrument patches which use either the NI Beat Machine feature or the NI Time Machine feature), so they will automatically sync to your songs, and you can even use Kontakt or Intakt to apply sound-shaping to each slice if you wish.
Altered States was originally created when the contents of all of the following 10 Zero-G products (all of which scored either 4 or 5 stars in review in Sound On Sound magazine) were integrated into one mind-bogglingly powerful library:
- Zero-G Ambient Volume 1
- Zero-G Ambient Volume 2
- Zero-G Cuckooland Unhinged
- Zero-G Cuckooland Ghost In The Machine
- Zero-G Cuckooland Asylum
- Zero-G Cuckooland Ambience
- Zero-G Malice In Wonderland
- Zero-G Fields of Motion
- Zero-G Junk Percussion
- Zero-G Dream Zone
- Zero-G Ibiza Chillout
The re-programming, conversion, and organisation of this vast product was expertly carried out by IAN BODDY, one of the UK´s leading synthesists, and was designed to be as user friendly and logically creative as possible.
Users of NI KONTAKT or NI INTAKT please note: The Altered States library is presented with instrument (.nki) patches. As regards any loops within the library, they can be automatically synced to tempo via Beat Machine or Time Machine controls. The Beat Machine programming has loops divided into their individual hits (slices) so they can be played at a wide range of tempos without change in pitch or audio quality. It also allows you to give each hit individual settings for pitch, playback direction, pitch envelope, amp envelope, distortion, delay, and more; a MIDI file of each loop can be easily exported so that groove, accent, and feel can be manipulated in any host sequencer.
Altogether, Altered States provides over 4 Gigabytes of world-class uniquely creative rhythm loops, instruments & samples produced by multi award winning sound designers Ian Boddy, Cuckooland, and others. For full details on the contents of the entire ALTERED STATES sample library please download the PDF on the right.
IMPORTANT: This is not a Rompler or a Plugin - with this version you will simply be downloading the Altered States sample library in WAV format which you can use with any music software - you don´t get the NI "Intakt Instrument" interface - but everything has been set up in Kontakt patches which you also get, so if you have the full version of NI Kontakt then all the instruments are already programmed, mapped out and playable. Kontakt makes no compromises in the playing and performing of sample-based instruments. Its powerful multi-mode filters, envelopes, LFOs and FX will give this library enormous flexibility and a wealth of creative possibilities. Load the provided .nki patches into your copy of Kontakt, or, just use the WAV files with your favourite sampling software.
