Award Winning Engine
Heavyocity has spent nearly a decade building virtual instrument engines that inspire and enable creativity for the modern composer. And to that end, the award-winning NOVO engine is our greatest achievement so far.
It starts with the MACRO CONTROL, the power to modulate and automate multiple parameters across each channel - including volume, pan, EQ, envelope, and various effects - MACRO is at the front and center of Intimate Textures´ lush Texture Designer.
And if you want to dive in deeper, Intimate Textures also includes NOVO´s CYCLE feature - a new frontier for sound manipulation in a KONTAKT-based virtual instrument. Quickly create rhythmic pulses, swells, and granular-style pads with this cutting-edge dynamic playback engine. Explore an infinite world of sound design with Heavyocity´s new NOVO Pack, Intimate Textures.
***NOTE*** - Whilst NOVO Packs supplement Heavyocity´s main NOVO instrument, you DO NOT need to already own it to use the content as the NOVO engine is included!
