Fairly Confusing Waveforms has announced the release of The Device, a new free instrument in its series of automatic noise sequencer toys for Native Instruments Kontakt.
This space age instrument can play back a 10 layer set of sound sequences, along with sequenced modulators program. Sequences can be picked randomly, picked by an id number or programmed by hand, although the last option is somewhat tedious task.
The instrument is using two main sample sets. ‘Space circuits’ set is analog electronic, created with an old Sequential Circuits synthesizer. ‘Alien waveforms’ set is mainly made of acoustic recordings, stretched and re-shaped digitally. Together there are 160 wav samples, 44,1 Mhz/ 16 bit. And here’s a ‘glimpse through’ the device’s interface and possibilities.
The Device is available for free and instant download at Fairly Confusing Waveforms. The download size is 12MB (RAR archive).
In order to work, it requires the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt sampler, version 4.24 or newer.
