1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Massive X, Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

    First Day: Here we go friends, a 150 euro price drop on “Da Capo” V2 at https://www.sonokinetic.net/sale?ref=ni Now only €49 !



    What has changed:
    - the instrument has become much more efficient in terms of processor use
    - we expanded the top end playable range
    - legatos are smoother
    - we ironed out inconsistencies in the instrument’s guts
    - overall modernising of the innards
    - less clicking: cmd/ctrl clicking an articulation will update all
    What has not changed:
    - the great unprocessed raw sound people have come to love
    - the sample content (the update is script and nki only)
    - the interface (we still really like that)

    The update is free to all existing owners and is available now in the Sonokinetic Manager

    Da Capo is compatible with the free Kontakt player version 5.8 or later and is also NKS compatible

    12 Days Of Christmas Day 2: To continue the Sonokinetic tradition: All new “Modal Runs” for orchestral Strings and Woodwinds 33% introductory discount at https://www.sonokinetic.net/sale?ref=ni

    The most intuitive runs instrument out there. Realistic runs are hard to produce with a conventional multisampled instrument, and fast runs are hard to play if you're not an accomplished pianist. We produced this instrument to make fast runs extremely easy to play. They adapt to your composition's tempo and key, making completely realistic runs attainable for everybody. Whether it be just a single run up to a transition, or an intense flurry of up and down runs that are the centerpiece of a composition, these runs will deliver. Play them with just a chord in the left hand and a beginning and end note in the right hand. They are great fun to play around with, and the intuitive 'emphasis' slider dials in a mix between the recorded strings and woodwinds sections in one fluid motion.

    Note the 'Modal' part of the name - these runs don't just play from major scales root notes - they can start and end on any note of the scale, making all modalities within the diatonic scale available. Additionally, when in Relative Keyboard mode, any note you press on the right hand side will be conformed to the nearest scale tone, making it really easy to play runs that adapt to changing chords in real time! With this new inventive and holistic approach to editing and scripting, we kept the sample count and RAM footprint extremely low for this instrument without compromising on the realism of the end result.

    Returning to the superb recording space we employed for other Sonokinetic orchestral libraries, we gathered a selection of some of the greatest (and most precise) players to perform for us. With a full woodwind and string section at our disposal, we captured the full range of the instruments. Modal Runs is designed from the ground up, borrowing design aspects from our other instruments such as Ostinato. This script is an exciting new development that we are very proud of and stretches the limits of what you can achieve with traditional sampling.

    This library coexists alongside both our Orchestral Series and our Phrase-Based libraries, being recorded in the same hall, with identical mic positions and even utilising some of the same players. Our orchestral libraries blend seamlessly together.

    Modal Runs is compatible with the free Kontakt player version 5.8.1 or later and is also NKS compatible.

    Ostinato Noir is released

    Multi-section Ostinato with a film noir feel Ostinato Noir is designed to play rhythmic Ostinato chordal patterns for Strings, Woodwinds and Brass that work particularly in a Noir setting. With muted trumpets and horns, extended chords, warm woodwinds and velvety strings it has everything you need to add a Noir vibe to any composition. If you’re familiar with the sister Ostinato libraries and our approach to ostinato recording then you’ll feel right at home with Ostinato Noir. The entire approach is different from our regular phrase instruments in that we recorded separate intervals for various rhythmic building blocks. After careful editing we combine these intervals through an intelligent script that builds them into chords in 5 different voicings and 4 inversions. The new inversion arpeggio controls create inversion patterns at the press of a key… a fast and easy way to build interesting sequences.

    Ostinato Noir recognises and plays 12 different chord types, handling not only major and minor chords but also diminished, half-diminished, augmented chords and many more. There’s a full list documented within the user manual. Not only does the engine build the chords based on the inversion you play in the chord area, but when you play in the harmonic shift area it will judge which inversion it plays based on the chord that came before it, the chord quality on the key you're in and the position of the chord you're triggering in that key. This ensures that transitions are smooth and harmonically correct, especially important to creating evolving motifs.

    We have returned to the superb concert hall we employed for other Sonokinetic orchestral libraries and gathered a selection of some of the greatest (and most precise) players to perform for us. With three full orchestral sections at our disposal, we captured the full range of the instruments, allowing a wider palette of timbres within the Ostinato engine and playing up to 8 notes simultaneously. Although on the surface the interface looks the same as its sister libraries, Ostinato Noir has been completely rebuilt in the back-end to work more smoothly, allowing for multiple orchestral sections.

    Ostinato Noir is compatible with the free Kontakt Player version 5.8.1 or later and is also NKS compatible

    Ostinato Noir is available at the introductory price of €63.93 until 6th January 2020 after which the price will rise to €99.90
