Native Instruments has teamed up with composer Clinton Shorter for Lores, a new fairytale-like cinematic instrument for Kontakt 6 Player.
Fairy tale films, for example from Disney and others, transport you to new magical worlds. This feeling is especially reinforced by the very dreamy music that is composed for such movies.
A new virtual Kontakt 6 instrument from Native Instruments and composer Clinton Shorter brings those dreamy, smokey sounds to any DAW.
Native Instruments LORES
LORES is a new virtual instrument for Kontakt 6 (Player) that is modeled after the workflow of the composer Clinton Shorter, best known for its soundtrack for District 9. His way of working has now been squeezed into a multi-layer instrument with which you can quickly design your own sounds.
The core features 16 instruments and over 300 hand-played articulations to mix and match. The sound sources range from woodwinds, traditional strings, rare chordophones up to unique instruments such as the hurdy-gurdy, shakuhachi, Mongolian horse fiddle, or medieval pipes. Then, all these are embedded in a well-thought-out user interface allowing you to mix up to 3 different sources together.
Native Instruments promises that LORES dissolves the boundaries of traditional instruments. It brings together fantastical blends between traditional and electric instruments. On top, you can modify the sounds with different parameters incl. effects and add motion to them. Great for “random swells, unexpected tremolos, and stray harmonics create organic variations for evolving tones and textures”.
Playful Sound Lab
Further, LORES ships with 373 factory presets and 72,3 GB of sound content. You can use the included presets for instant fun or dive deep into the engine and create new soundscapes from scratch. You can stage sounds within multi-dimensional smoke plumes or subtly tuned with dynamic effects.
Lores is for me, a virtual instrument that puts you in sonic fairy tales. It outputs smokey, gloomy soundscapes and textures that fit perfectly into film scores. Yes, and especially in visual content that transports the viewer into new worlds.
Native Instruments LORES is available now for 199€ and it runs in the free Kontakt 6 Player or Kontakt 6 full version.
