Berlin, October 14, 2021 – Native Instruments today released SEQUIS, the latest addition to their range of KONTAKT-based instruments, created with Orchestral Tools.

An instrument that will appeal to music producers and media composers alike, SEQUIS is the follow up to ARKHIS — NI’s hugely successful instrument for cutting-edge cinematic underscoring. Both instruments were developed in partnership with Orchestral Tools — the legendary Berlin-based instrument design studio famed for their blockbuster sounds.

This time the focus is on rhythmic themes and looping phrases. The instrument draws from a rich variety of inspiring acoustic samples including atmospheric strings, delicate flutes, driving percussion, and even human voice. These sounds are then harnessed within an intuitive 16-step sequencer to allow producers to quickly create evolving pads and complex patterns perfect for cinematic sci-fi and dancefloors alike.

To celebrate the release, NI is offering ARKHIS and SEQUIS together as a bundle, with a saving of over 35% until November 3, 2021.
