Cinematique Instruments has announced the release of Landscape, a free instrument for NI Kontakt that creates textures, dynamic ambiences and drones.
Equipped with seven layered sounds and eight effects, Landscape can be used either as a self-running drone generator or as a playable instrument.
Landscape is based around seven sound slots, which can be loaded with various sounds. Five of these slots feature an assortment of waveforms (sine waves, flirring sound, warmness and fragile sax), one is dedicated to noise and rumbling, and the last one can generate waterdrops or atomic blips using random intervals.
Each of them is equipped with an individual type of filter as well as a speed adjustable automation to ensure that you get endless sounding ambiences that never repeat themselves.
For shaping the overall sound, Landscape provides six insert effects (tone color, rotary speaker, lowpass and multi-filter, drive and glass/space convolution models) and two send effects (reverb and delay).
Landscape requires a full version of Kontakt v5.6.8 or above (Kontakt Player version isn’t supported).
